Rookie (1/10)



  1. No, Sellar was from Glenelg. He was as useful there as he was for us
  2. I eventually figured it out, also after a few goes, and now have two member tickets. But I agree that it's not very user friendly, and when you're trying to figure it out with a timer counting down, it can become a little challenging. If we don't win, it's going to be an expensive disappointment. But of course we will win, and should! If for no other reason so that I can politely shove it up my Qld-based Lions-supporting rellies. I've only ever, after 60-odd (mostly just odd) years of supporting Dees, seen two live Dees finals - one against the Roos in 2002, and Geelong 2018. Both times we were winners, so hopefully the spaced-out trend continues.
  3. How did you do it? I'm currently battling Ticketek, but without much success. (I live in Adelaide, lucky me!) It doesn't seem to want to let me book tickets, even though I'm putting in the right barcode numbers. Are we supposed to select General Admission, which seems to be restricted to just a couple of small bays? Or do we select the other option, Home/Club 1 members? I would have thought that since this is not a Crows/Port match, the usual "keep the other bastards out" rules wouldn't apply. Anyone been through the exercise successfully?
  4. Make mine" Lazy" as well. Has to be played at 11, though. Even has a bit of harp, if I recall correctly. Might have to go and play it to make sure that's correct. Sorry, neighbours!
  5. 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.
  6. 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 have no idea why they let him go, but maybe he was immature then. He's 24 now, so he's not a spring chicken, but he's not too old to bother with. I reckon he might be worth another go in the big time. This time he might be mature enough to appreciate what he missed out on last time, and grab the opportunity with both hands. Lots of ifs and buts, but it's just a thought.
  7. 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?
  8. Bugg - will get life Hyperbole alert!
  9. 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!
  10. Any chance we could tackle somewhere other than their freaking necks?
  11. Karma might be a [censored], but she's also a hell of a tease!
  12. 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!
