    Similar story as most pre season matches. Both sides had a few missing. I think we had probably 5 or so missing from our best side. Crows had a few more. It was good to have a run in the heat of the day. As for Tom i havent heard he is on the move but i did notice he was absent from the night series GF. Would be a huge loss for Berrigan if he is going.

    If you had what he has got you would not have played footy for the past two years. Your wise cracks are not very nice for some one who cant play and if you could you would not last long.

    Hahahahahaha. Knew you couldnt resist!!!

    Just for you...
    NEVER ARGUE WITH A WOMAN
    One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book.

    Along comes a Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, "Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?"
    "Reading a book" she replies (thinking, isnt that obvious)
    "You're in a restricted fishing area" he informs her.
    "I'm sorry officer but I'm not fishing I am reading."
    "Yes but you have all the equipment, for all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up"
    "For Reading a book", she replies.
    "You're in a Restricted Fishing Area", he informs her again,
    "I'm sorry offcer, but I'm not fishing I am reading"
    Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up.
    "If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault," says the woman.
    "But I haven't even touched you" says the game warden.
    "That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment".
    "Have a nice day ma'am," and he left.

    Moral: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.


    Being serious tho, I do know his condition and yes is a credit to him that he has continued playing. :thumbsu:

    Dont you should think before you comment about conditions of players. Why do you think he hasnt been on here for along time.Also I know not to argue with women they are to smart some times for there own good. I would hate to be that good at a sport and not be able to do it ,it would turn you around the thist very smartly.Just leave him alone + the hole senior side leaving him is not helping 28 players walking away ,Mathoura must have a bad name in footy circle maybe.Blighty are in the mix with poaching players as well from Mathoura offering rediculous amounts of money, just well you have Lakers property to make money you would have gone a few years ago.

    Hahahahaha, Oh the stories & rumours make a good pre season dont they! Well just 4 ur info franga Blighty didn't poach any players from mathoura thats why they only ended up with 1, & it wasn't even the coach that initially spoke to Brody, it was his good mate Brad Robson that actually got the ball rolling to get him across so they could have a year of footy together! & secondly if they where poaching the players & paying these so called ridiculous amounts then why did they knock back Matt Sparey becuase he couldn't committ 100% to training?? If clubs where poaching & just spending up cash at will then 1 would think they would say yes 2 any good player interested!! Not the case, so next time u wana make silly statements do some research 1st!! & a rubber is prob what someone should have worn years ago!!!!

    Haha u are a flog, why don't u ask him urself? Matt & Brody are also best mates & when Brody signed he himself tried 2 get Matt 2 come also but after he spoke with the coach & said with his work commitments he would struggle 2 train the coach said he couldn't guarantee him a senior spot!! FACT!!!!!! I got absolutely no reason 2 lie mate, not interested in that crap only the truth so u can believe whateva tickles ur fancy & makes u happy! Have a good time rubbing 1 out....

    So on another note, finally its here Rd1 this week, what's everyone's tips?

    Blighty V Yarroweyah- Yarro have had a few KEY player loses in the off season but also picked up some very handy players likewise with Blighty, so therefor I think this will be a very close game! But Blighty due to home ground advantage.

    Deni V Strathy- Strathy are the talk of the league with their large amount of quality pick ups & they also pick up the early favourites tag, but Deni seem to have recruited very wisely in the off season also without losing to many! My tip is Strathy JUST!

    Jerilderie V Picola- Probably the 2 most quiet sides in the off season, both will be very similar to their outputs from last year IMO so I will say Jerilderie by 50points at home.

    Mathoura V Berrigan- Probably the 2 most talked about sides in the off season (with strathy), will be very interesting to see what side Mathoura put out on sat, with so many loses I'm sure with a few key players staying they will still be competitive, but Berrigan on the other hand have also lost 5-6 very handy players but picked up likewise so they should still be thereabouts come september, unfortunately for Mathoura I see the Saints getting up by 12goals!

    Anyone else care to share their tips or things they think will happen throughout the year?

    Good Luck to all on Sat, bring on season 2012:thumbsu::thumbsu::thumbsu::thumbsu:

    Exactly my thoughts there SP, I really rate deni but also thought with strathy's recruits that they would've been the team to beat? Well it seems deni did that 1st up! Maybe deni are slightly ahead of where we thought! I tipped them in the top 5 but thought more 3rd to 5th for them! Maybe a top 2 spot isn't out of there reach!! But all in all it is only Rd1 & we all know to expect some surprsies early!! After bout Rd7 we should know how things are really looking!! But well done to all winners yesterday....

    It is only round 1 as you say but it was a good win by the boys. Dont write strathy off just yet. We played well i dont think they played all that well. Whether that was because of our pressure of not i dont know. Maybe a bit of both. They are a quick side but do lack a couple of tall options. It will be an interesting few weeks with sides working out the comp. Good to see Mathoura getting a few sides on the park.

    I think everyone has underated the Rovers, they've lost only 1 player from last season and have gained some pretty handy recruits. I reckon they'll definitely finish top three. If they don't who knows what I'll do.

    I agree Wizard, I think they have slipped under the radar abit, definitely had them in the top 5 but where?? Well that'll all become abit clearer after bout Rd 7 I think, once everyone has played each other!!!!

    Maybe everyone overrated strathy at least so far as start of season form. Number of new recruits would expect to take a while to gel. Rovers more settled as a team. But I said rovers top 3 in my pick and I am sticking with that. Anything less and who knows what I'll do!!!! :eek::D

    I know I dont really fancy a top of ladder finish heading into finals, so you guys can have that Mover..... IMO can be a curse finishing top with possible two weeks off during finals. This was brought up in Spectator what do others think can it be a disadvantage to finish top in a final 5?

    Nah ur right WILTY & we've been saying it for years! I believe that any team that is hitting form leading into finals & is placed from 2nd to 5th is best placed rather than 1st only because of the possible week off / play / week off / play scenario! I think its definitely a disadvantage as once you as a team hit form barring injuries no one wants a rest!!!!

    An inform 2nd to 5th is the spot for mine!
