    Thoughts on the outrage regarding children cage fighting? I don't see the big issue tbh, looks like it's in a pretty safe & controlled environment.
  2. My numbers say they have an 80% strike rate including 0-2 in Australia.

    Lol you're such a fucking geek sometimes. Getting excited about coefficients ffs.So by your logic, Croatian League> Greece, Dutch & Turkish Leagues. I can deal with that Lol well this season Croatian teams have outperformed teams from those countries in Europe. But that's why the 5 year coefficents are used to actually rank the teams because one season may be an outlier, and I think if you look over the rankings that leads to a pretty damn accurate ranking in regard to the strength of each league over the last 5 years.. Either way this has been a massive season for Italy in Europe, and will lead to a very strong coefficient over the next 5 years. Could end up overtaking England. Yet Croatia hasn't had a team in the last 16 of the CL in forever. Bullshit calculations for mine, cbf going to look but don't you get the same amount of points for winning a group stage match as you do a final?

  6. Wouldn't mind Danny Vukovic for the right price tbh.
  7. That Subiaco game where we were 7 goals up or something for the whole game then you came back and beat us is still fresh in my memory. But I still can't see us losing a game at home this year, that home crowd is so valuable in those close games. Hopefully Pav & Walters are allowed to play. I just want us to be in the game at half time and I will be pretty happy.
  8. I think Rounds 2 & 3 caused the most confusion. Everyone I was watching with had Pac while I thought it was Floyd slightly in both, I think the points should have been closer overall but that's what you get @ MGM.
  9. All good, got another barcode off a mate.
  10. So I understand we can get 4 tickets per membership, but is this limited to 1 transaction? Need to get a ticket for someone else in a different section but didn't want to fuck myself.
  11. And it only took 48 fights for you to find this out (y) Well if you don't quote the thing I said obviously I look like a fool. The question always was, if he beats manny, is he the greatest? The best ever is obviously subjective but of this era has to be the best. Yeah probably this era. My problem is mainly the entertainment factor. If you're the greatest ever you gotta have it all. The ability, the record, the opponents and the flair. He has 3/4, Ali had 4/4 Does Ali really have the record though? 5 losses.

  13. Even more embarrassing that he's probably the best winger to play for us based on performance alone.
  14. Long time Spurs fan, knew we would lose, we always struggle to defend titles. Got Clippers @ $19 to win the Championship, think it's either them or Cavs/Warriors now who can win it. Need CP3 to get up but.

  16. But you giving Novillo shit is fine yeah?I'd like to say his goal was luck but I suppose those things happen when you have an all out attacking mentality like Novillo does. Still did fuck all the rest of the game while the commentators were falling over him just because he is flashy. And the assist? What assist? Mooy assisted, and Novillo did not pass the ball to Mooy, he lost control of the ball and it trickled to Mooy. His goal was also luck. Again, I'll concede that when you're always attacking like Novillo, eventually the luck will be in your favour. But how many attacking opportunities did he waste? Look, he is useful for us right now because we wouldn't do anything with all the attacks he wastes anyway, they'd just be wasted by someone else, and at least at some point it comes off for Novillo. But if we have a competent manager next season, Novillo is of no use. The key to winning football matches is attacking efficiency, rather than doing the most attacking or creating the most chances. Something people in this country don't understand, probably due to watching too much EPL. But how does that all out attacking EPL style work out in Europe against teams that attack efficiently? Not very well judging by this season's results. What the fuck have you been watching? What is the end product of all the things he does? Most the time it's nothing. Again, useful for us now given that we'd waste all those attacks anyway under JVS, and at least it comes off for Novillo sometimes, unlike Williams and Ramsey, but in the future I'd hope we can attack more efficiently, and Novillo is not the player for that You should coach man.
  17. But you giving Novillo shit is fine yeah?I'd like to say his goal was luck but I suppose those things happen when you have an all out attacking mentality like Novillo does. Still did fuck all the rest of the game while the commentators were falling over him just because he is flashy. And the assist?Not trying to get involved on either side, but Mooy assisted Kennedy's goal not Novillo My bad

  20. Meh, for me she will always be in the same group of sports journos such as Patrick Smith & Mat Thompson who you can tell don't even watch the sport their covering. Fair enough. I am sure Caro watches a few games a weekend, but for The Age footy chief writer whatever the fuck her title is to just constantly be writing articles about back room dramas and not about what is happening ON the field when there are stories a plenty just irks me. Pretty much an older, skinnier, female verson of Brian Windhorst in the NBA.The point made about the part I've highlighted and underlined is fair enough. Also, any chance the Essendon saga has tinted your lenses a fair bit though? (srs question)She did call for James Hird to be sacked and went pretty hard on it so probably why I can't have her.She is hired to write about the Backroom Stuff as that is how she made her name by having strong sources at Richmond which was club usually internally in disarray in the first 10-15 years of her career. FWIW I find the backroom part of Footy just as interesting as Footy Itself (Esp the last couple of Seasons how the game has developed tactically) but then again I understand how not everybody likes Politics to the extent that someone who studying at Uni would... Patrick Smith obv has some opinions I dont like... but at least he sticks to them and raises interesting issues and FWIW I think a lot of his haters would miss his presence on the Footy Media Landscape if he disappeared. I'm not saying I don't find ANY of the back room stuff enjoyable but would personally prefer someone who mixes it up a bit like Hutchy. I also hate Damian Barrett fwiw. Yeah, genuinely I give sports journos a fair bit more leeway than others as my Grandfather was one but I have to say Barrett is the only major one that I cant stand at all. And from all reports walks around like his shit doesn't stink which makes him more cringeworthy.

  22. TTIM: Australian media coverage of tennis. Kyrgios wins his first game since the Australian Open (struggled against an average opponent), gets shown on every sports report. Of course no mention last week of how he lost to a player ranked #192. Meanwhile Tomic playing most consistent tennis of his career. In the top 30, should be top 20 by the end of the year. Don't hear anything about him.
