Training Photos - Wednesday 15th January, 2014

Recommended Posts

Thanks for so many great shots

if a pictures worth a thousand words you have just provided a novel.

as the worlds worst photographer I am in awe of the clarity and structure of nearly all your shots. Can almost feel the intensity in some of those action shots and great continuity in some of the sequences.

I hope the boys can deliver the goods as well as you have delivered here.

Tell you what. Big Spencil is looking in fantastic shape!

It may be by default, but I reckon he'll start the season as number one ruckman

"Hi Six6Six, You have quite a few great shots of Maiai Westrup. Is he starting to look like an AFL footballer rather than a misplaced kiwi?"

fndee, There are a few shots of Maiai Westrup but you may be confusing Billy Stretch (No. 7) with Maiai as the both have similar build and look. There is a sequence of billy going through his paces under the watchful eyes of Bret Allison, Colin Garland and Viv Mitchie

I saw Maia at training yesterday and I was surprised how well he went. By that, I mean that I was expecting him to be well below rookie standard but he's not. He's quite an athlete and he has some skills.I think he should be good to get his fair share of games at Casey seniors this year whereas he was a long way off being even development league standard last year.

And that is exactly what i did, thanks for clearing it up Six6Six

Two things about Stretch Jnr

1) He is more solid than I would have thought and

2) Looks to have a decent kicking action. We are not exactly flush with blokes that can hit targets. Lets hope he keeps improving.

On a completely unrelated matter father/son selections don"t require a DNA test do they?

Based on my two views of him in the pre-season he doesn't look out of place with the ball in his hand. When he kicks though that is a very different story. His kicking is very much off AFL standard (yes possibly like some others on our list).

Separate note but those photos really show off the size of Tyson. He is a seriously good size.

Same build as his dad without the ginger nut, I don't think the lack of ginger nut is an issue according to the human gnome. I have no idea of his mums genealogy,

Who the hell is the human gnome? I hope it's not Stuie or Moon - I wouldn't like either of those effers in my front garden.

I guessed it was a typo "Beast" but I couldn't let it go. (I have had that problem for years)

Good get. Hadn't noticed Howe's left hand looks to be attached to Westrup's left arm. Trick photography!

That reminded me of a funny tweet I saw yesterday - something about asking a chemist and a builder their response to the word "unionized".

A chemist would read it as "un-ion-ized"

A builder would read it as "union-ized"

From Urban Dictionary:

Capisce (pronounced cah-PEESH) is an Italian word that is used in American slang to say "got it" or "understand." The correct word in Italian would be capisci (pronounced cah-PEE-shee) to address the second person informally, a.k.a. you. Capisce, in Italian, is used only to address the second person formally (like when speaking to an elder or someone you don't know) or to express that a third person (he, she, it) understands. The correct Italian pronunciation of capisce is cah-PEE-shay.

To say I understand is capisco (cah-PEE-sko).

"You better get outta my house before I break your face, capisci?" "Yeah, capisco."

Thanks Akum.

capisco

Rhetorical Irony perhaps better avoided Although I did not know the formal recognised response

Yeh, this was news to me too, & something I'd always wondered about, which is why I thought it best to quote it all.
