Just watching the Adelaide highlights - Betts got the ball over the back, kicked at goal under pressure, and it went straight through the middle as he slid into the goal post.

Except it hit the goal umpire just over the line and bounced back onto the field, and what I can only assume was an apprentice metro primary schools umpire called that it wasn't a goal, and was instead play on with the Kangaroos rebounding.

There's a red (and a green, blue and yellow) button on the Foxtel remote control which is used to activate multi channel stuff, most commonly for 6 Premier League games on one channel. Last year they started offering team-oriented alternative AFL commentary, and that game was the best ever example.

Honestly though, it's probably a thing to do with cricket being an all day event where musical instruments wouldn't really gently caress your spectatorship of the sport. I don't get it personally, but I'd be kind of pissed off if someone was blasting a trumpet in my ear at the footy.

They banned musical instruments at Adelaide Oval years ago, and it basically took people getting lovely with them not letting the Barrmy Army trumpeter into the ground with his trumpet for them to take one step back and allow approved instruments in on a case by case basis.

Steel drums and bongos on the Clem Hill hill were great during a game, back before and just after they put up the Chappell stands and the Clem Hill stand :sigh:

To take it from the other point of view, who's to say that we aren't excluding people from other cultures feeling like they can come to the footy by preventing them from being able to enjoy sport in a way they can relate to? What if the overly strict rules which dampen crowd participation are actively keeping away cultural groups that really enjoy that sort of thing?

Everyone in, everyone sits, everyone claps, everyone cheers politely at a middle volume, everyone gets up at half time to buy a venue snack and a non alcoholic drink, everyone returns to their seats, everyone claps, everyone cheers politely at a middle volume, everyone applauds bboth teams and the umpires at the end of the game, everyone queues to buy one item of Playcorp merchandise, everyone files out of the venue in an orderly fashion.

The AFL dream as envisioned and currently being enacted by a HR department. Alcohol, excessive noise, non-regulation cheers, any aggression, these are things that could lead to an incident and a lawsuit, and a PR campaign against them from the Family Morality Organisation for Moral Families.

It's a sullen dystopian future to be sure. Could it even be called a sport, unless a thirteen year old girl is there, in the front row, calling an indigenous player an ape? Probably not.

Yes because I was totally talking about bringing back racism, and not that stewards and police will come and give you a warning if you shout loudly or swear, and you weren't at all being pretentious.

It is possible to stamp out racism, sexism and alcohol fueled violence without also stamping out vocal and passionate support, which seems to be flying out the door with them.

Ah, Jupiter, is he to leave,

is a foreigner to pour scorn on our kingdom? Shall my Tyrians

ready their armour, and follow them out of the city, and others drag

our ships from their docks? Go, bring fire quickly, hand out the

weapons, drive the oars! What am I saying? Where am I?

What madness twists my thoughts? Wretched Dido, is it now

that your impious actions hurt you? The right time was then,

when you gave him the crown. So this is the word and loyalty

of the man whom they say bears his father’s gods around,

of the man who carried his age-worn father on his shoulders?

Couldn’t I have seized hold of him, torn his body apart,

and scattered him on the waves? And put his friends to the sword,

and Ascanius even, to feast on, as a course at his father’s table?

True the fortunes of war are uncertain. Let them be so:

as one about to die, whom had I to fear? I should have set fire

to his camp, filled the decks with flames, and extinguishing

father and son, and their whole race, given up my own life as well.

O Sun, you who illuminate all the works of this world,

and you Juno, interpreter and knower of all my pain,

and Hecate howled to, in cities, at midnight crossroads,

you, avenging Furies, and you, gods of dying Elissa,

acknowledge this, direct your righteous will to my troubles,

and hear my prayer. If it must be that the accursed one

should reach the harbour, and sail to the shore:

if Jove’s destiny for him requires it, there his goal:

still, troubled in war by the armies of a proud race,

exiled from his territories, torn from Iulus’s embrace,

let him beg help, and watch the shameful death of his people:

then, when he has surrendered, to a peace without justice,

may he not enjoy his kingdom or the days he longed for,

but let him die before his time, and lie unburied on the sand.

This I pray, these last words I pour out with my blood.

Then, O Tyrians, pursue my hatred against his whole line

and the race to come, and offer it as a tribute to my ashes.

Let there be no love or treaties between our peoples.

Rise, some unknown avenger, from my dust, who will pursue

the Trojan colonists with fire and sword, now, or in time

to come, whenever the strength is granted him.

I pray that shore be opposed to shore, water to wave,

weapon to weapon: let them fight, them and their descendants.

This passion lifted him upon his feet,
And made his hands to struggle in the air,
His Druid locks to shake and ooze with sweat,
His eyes to fever out, his voice to cease.
He stood, and heard not Thea’s sobbing deep;
A little time, and then again he snatch’d
Utterance thus. - «But cannot I create?
«Cannot I form? Cannot I fashion forth
«Another world, another universe,
«To overbear and crumble this to nought?
«Where is another chaos? Where?» - That word
Found way unto Olympus, and made quake
The rebel three. - Thea was startled up,
And in her bearing was a sort of hope,
As thus she quick-voic’d spake, yet full of awe.

«This cheers our fallen house: come to our friends,
«O Saturn! come away, and give them heart;
«I know the covert, for thence came I hither.»
Thus brief; then with beseeching eyes she went
With backward footing through the shade a space:
He follow’d, and she turn’d to lead the way
Through aged boughs, that yielded like the mist
Which eagles cleave upmounting from their nest.

Meanwhile in other realms big tears were shed,
More sorrow like to this, and such like woe,
Too huge for mortal tongue or pen of scribe:
The Titans fierce, self hid, or prison-bound,
Groan’d for the old allegiance once more,
And listen’d in sharp pain for Saturn’s voice.

James Brayshaw is a oval office. And as a North supporter, I blame you personally for him and his atrocious cricket commentary.

edit: To make a serious point though, I doubt there is any major sports team anywhere in the world that is not owned/run buy horrible horrible people. And if there is, then that sports team probably has horrible horrible people playing for them, and if they don't then they are supported bu horrible horrible people.

In short: people are cunts, people involved at the highest level of sport exponentially so.

The best case study is Chelsea FC - the supporters are largely racist to full on neo-nazi cunts, many of the players are cunts, the captain is a deadset oval office, the manager is a mega oval office, and the owner is a corrupt as all gently caress oval office. They're going to win the league this season :thumbsup:

He's 21 and he's already had an achilles, a broken leg, a broken foot and a severe hamstring tear. I already have him down as a good 200 game who never reaches the hype type, but if he keeps getting these injuries he's not even going to get that far, which compounds the trade error even further.

Sounds like Iaccarinno probably won't be punished either since there aren't rules related to VFL players betting on AFL teams. Heard that they are going to change rules regarding players at VFL clubs that are either aligned with an AFL team or are flat-out owned by an AFL team.

Got home from Ikea just in time to see pick 12 fly by; took over, then just before I selected Cooney, while desperately trying to boost someone else above him in my wishlist, Adam internet cut out for 10 minutes, so by the time I got my phone off wifi and logged in that one was gone. Then the time desynched and it auto selected a 4th ruckman for me while I was trying to take Langdon as a back.

This is going to take some doing to salvage, since the stupid machine also burned my third pick on Brad Crouch, who is out for a good 6 rounds.
