    Poll: The Zurich Logo

    Voted no to be different because the answer is so bloody obvious. Sorry.

    I think it’s more worrying for Jones rather than the teams fortunes.

    That's a thousand year commitment from the Viney's. Pretty awesome indeed.

    Put your money where your mouth is chap and link me those posts you’re so willing to accuse me of. As rjay has mentioned, I too fail to see where or how I’ve been implicated in this diatribe defence you’ve dreamt up for Burgo... I reckon I’ll hear crickets chirping before you get a reply back to me. Ed: And furthermore, I would like to hope the site admin deal with an accusation of making “derogatory comments” appropriately when you come up empty handed.

    What’s worse, the items you’ve mentioned or you getting on your soap box about it at every opportunity? You know the answer Mr training report policeman.

    Really? I bet he’s done it to extract the urine following on from the texting episode. It’s hilarious. Still, I’m glad he’s at PA now.

    It’s also available on Audible for those that travel a lot in their jobs.

    Big wave surfers have to hold their breath for a long time if they come unstuck and get pummeled by more than 30,000 tonnes of water. I'm guessing this is the gist of what Visser and the coaches are trying to impart on the players - when you're not in control, you need to remain calm and keep focused by facing whatever fear it is your facing so you can recover from it and ultimately survive (win). I've just finished reading What doesn't kill us from the author Scott Carney which is essentially a book about Wim Hof and how Carney wanted to prove Hof was a fraud and just another false prophet. Through his investigation of Hof, Carney traveled the globe meeting fitness guru's and researching many other alternative training methods that athletes utilise to try and eek out that extra tenth of a second that might mean the difference between winning and coming third in a 100 metre sprint for example. Part of that investigation took him to big wave surfer Laird Hamilton's training pool in California. Some of the techniques he is researching and applying are insane but having real impact on individual performance. I won't spoil any of the book because I really recommend the read for not only its information but because it's actually a bloody enjoyable book to read. I'm halfway through it on the second read now. Anyway, here's a link to Hamilton's website Laird Hamilton which may help explain a bit more about what the club may be doing along with Visser to look for that little advantage when you're in need of it.. I just hope I haven't gone off on a tangent here.

    I’m loving those new training guernseys.
  11. The Wines and Fasolo incidents were entirely different and have been treated as such by the clubs and most media. Cornes is a DH. Players should not be wrapped in cotton wool because doing things such as water skiing and surfing is what makes athletes who they are when not working (playing footy). Take that away from them and you’d probably find they become less competitive in season because they’ve been sheltered little petals for 5 months.

    WELCOME TO DEMONLAND - NATALIE PORTMAN

    I can’t remember the trade, but I think that is Phil Davis.
  13. True but even a good stack off a ski can be bad if the ski digs as you’re going over.
  14. I’m an avid slalom water skier and was surprised to hear of Wines injury considering he’s such a big strong bloke. If his shoulder popped out from a normal slalom pass, the kid is going to have issues for the rest of his career you’d think.
