Maybe for Anzac day and grand final only ... That's it !!


Although it's not football, being an ex-36ers season ticket holder for 15 years, I remember when the NBL would play the national anthem before the start of every game, regular season or finals. I liked it, as it got the crowd revved up and the players focused and made the game feel important. I went to an NBL game recently and was a little disappointed that they took that away and IMO it felt like I was going to watch a local high school game, which probably would have been much more exciting.

'' I know you probably can't comment on the incident but....... '' , well don't ask the bloody question then! You know the player/official isn't going to tell you squat so stop wasting everyone's time, that question really s**ts me.

I heard another piece of new football tripe today, courtesy of Malthouse among others: The 'plus one'. The 'plus one' is the loose man in defence. Quite why there was a need to invent a new phrase for it I don't know.

"Take the game on". Apparently that's the clever advice from Primus, and from Hird that got their respective teams over the line according to the radio yesterday. What does that mean? "Take the game on, Doddy". No probs coach, I'll stop taking all these players on then and ... do what exactly?

At most Ice Hockey games the national anthem is played I know here in Melbourne every game we play the Anthem is played.

there is two 'pet hates' that i have

1, this happens very often & has happened for donkey years & as an example on the holiday monday match i heard that ''the Eagles lead 7 straight points to Glenelg yet to score.....to me how can points be STRAIGHT kicks

2, former Magarey medalists or former premiership players....how are they 'former' ? surely they still are !!

I would agree with you there on both points bayman. I'm sure somewhere along the line, the word 'straight' must have replaced the word 'single' perhaps?

But def No.2. You ARE a Premiership player or Magarey Medallist, no matter when you won it.

Have you seen AFL lately? Players run straight at the behind area and kick the ball straight at it ... for some reason. Now, to me that's a straight point Smile

I'd like to see the word "structure" disappear real quick. They've got ME saying it now!!!!

"Young kids" would have to be my pet hate. As opposed to "Old kids" maybe?

When radio or tv report "He (player) was dropped back to play in the SANFL"

I would like them to say "He (player) was dropped back to play with South Adelaide (or any other SANFL team) in the SANFL"

Just me being pedantic!!! Smile

"Time clock" is mine. Unless someone can tell me what other sort of clock there is.

I'd like to ban any talk about "premiership favourites" and "Brownlow/Magarey Medal favourites" until at least round 20.

Bump.

Zac Milbank needs to refresh his footy article template. Every footballer he mentions "measures in" at such-and-such a height and weight. Gawd help me.

What is it with football commentators that use the phrase "for mine"? Who else are they speaking for when offering an opinion.

From the SANFL site today:

"Measuring in at 191cm and 79kg, Bonner is the son of former Sturt player Derek Bonner and reveals he is studying at university to be a Physical Education teacher."

From today's article on the state screening. (Surely he's baiting us now.)

"Measuring in at 194cm and 91kg, Keough won this year’s Fos Williams Medal for restricting star Western Australian forward Shane Yarran in the 2015 West End State game in Perth."

Maybe let Zac know of your disappointment in his regular use of this saying and it might cease?

I'd just like Stephen Rowe to say 'left forward pocket' or 'right half back flank', instead of 'left hand forward pocket' and 'right hand half back flank'.

I try to avoid left and right as they mean opposite sides depending on where you are sitting. Much prefer to use grandstand side & outer side or ID with a local landmark, ie the Mound Bar, Old Scoreboard etc at Richmond.

As long as the landmark you use isn't the "time clock" Phil.
