  1. Agree with this 100%. Hamill still had an arm free and could have used it to protect himself from hitting his head. He chose to use it to try to get a kick away. It was his choice, effectively, that led to his head hitting the ground. I don't see why Nibbler (or anyone else in a similar situation) should be penalised for someone else's bad decision.
  2. I'll throw something out there. Luke Reynolds has just played in the winning Grand Final for Glenelg in the SANFL. (It's been a long, long wait!). He kicked 53.19 for the season and was second to Liam McBean in the SANFL goal kicking. He's a strong mark and doesn't miss too often, particularly in comparison to our woeful kicking this year. (And last year as well. I was rewatching last year's final with the Cats the other day, and even though we won, we kicked something like 10 behinds on the trot! You wouldn't normally get away with that too often.) He was rookied by Carlton in 2014, and I hav
  3. My grandson has a membership via Auskick. He can't go, so my daughter has sent me his barcode number. Am I able to use that to buy two adult tickets, or will Ticketek recognise the barcode as a junior member and not allow me to buy two adult tickets? Can anyone advise?
  4. Bugg - will get life Hyperbole alert!
  5. Could it be that the shape is supposed to represent a heart? If so, that would make sense in several ways. Although, as an anatomist who has handled more than a few hearts, I can tell you that it's a very symbolic approximation of a heart!
  6. Any chance we could tackle somewhere other than their freaking necks?
  7. Karma might be a [censored], but she's also a hell of a tease!
  8. The default position in all of these sorts of cases ought to be: No records = automatically guilty until proven otherwise. I'm staggered that it's not already, since it's a blindingly obvious tack to take to cover your tracks. As we've just seen to the max!
  9. How about the possibility that Jimmy knew the whole story a long time ago, as did Vlad, and that the favourable compensation picks were sorted out at the time, under the condition that Jimmy didn't open his gob? And that if he did, Vlad would make sure that the compensation would be worse than agreed at the time.
  10. Lived at East Sale many years ago. Was dux of Sale State in grade 6. All of my family come from around Sale, family farm, now long gone, at Letts Beach.
  11. Theoretically, yes, but he hasn't shown a lot of practical evidence of it. And as Goethe said, roughly translated, the theory is all grey, my friend. I haven't got a clue what he meant, but by golly, he was Goethe, so it must have meant something important!
  12. Obviously I hope I'm terribly wrong about this, but does the name Nick 426 Smith ring any bells? Big unit, sounded good, promised much, delivered little. And I'm not referring to his 426 injury problems. Or maybe Ben Holland in his later years with us? James has been playing in the SANFL on and off, for Glenelg, and although I haven't seen much of him, what I have seen suggests someone who should be smashing the opposition, but isn't. I could't even tell you what position he plays, because he seems to play everywhere and nowhere (baby!). He doesn't throw his weight around, and doesn't seem to
