    Looking forward it watching Charlie Cameron get to Graham feet and crumb a few spoils and then kick a few bags.

    Interested in watching battersby, Spina and Atkins this year.

    It's going to be interesting watching that's for sure.

    I reckon Siggins in particular if he comes on can be a very important player for us. An attacking CHB in the Bock mould would cap off our defense

    Id eventually prefer to see Battersby further up the ground but at this stage there's probably no one else who could play on the opposition small forwards as effectively.

    Looking forward to these matches. I hope we get to see these on 7 mate in NSW. Very doubtful I would think but perhaps the Crows can work something out for us interstaters.

    I reckon the Crows reserves game crowds will be interesting? 15k per game? 20k for showdowns? or 8-10k?

    Im bloody looking forward to watching and enjoying our B grade side play all in the same team.

    I could easily see myself watching our B side play ahead of an AFL match - depending on which one of course.

    I was tired for years checking through each side in the SANFL and reserves sometimes to see how the Crows players played.

    Will TEX play a game?????

    You would think given the nature he may play a quarter or half surely?

    Thoughts anyone?

    Bueller?

    Definitely will be bigger than any other game and may be the biggest for the year, but I dont think you will see more than 10K for a reserves game.

    I feel for you, I hope you have Foxtel, can get lonely being in a non-AFL state.

    I hope all the talk generated over us getting Battersby pays out in spades.

    It would be good if he could force his way into our starting 18 for at least a few games.

    Given the nature of our B grade players, we can play them exactly the way Sando wants it to be played.

    This can only be a good thing for us.

    I feel sorry for the SANFL Clubs I can see a lot of supporters leaving their old local SANFL side and severing all ties.

    Couple of questions:
    1. Is there any way for us who are interstate to see video footage of the reserves games?
    2. Who do I barrack for when the Crows play Norwood?

    1) Send an E - mail to channel 7 asking if they have any intentions of putting the SANFL on 7 mate or 7Two as a national broadcasting show.

    2) still trying to work that out myself.

    Answer to no 2 is Norwood. I imagine they were the first team you supported? Plus they'd actually want to win the comp. Cmon you Legs!

    You don't think the crows coaches or players are going to want to win?

    If you don't, get real. Of course they will. Everyone involved will have a competitive spirit and I don't buy this - they will be trialling players in different positions. Ar the end if the day, their main priority will be to win as everyone hates to lose.

    Not likely although ch 7 haven't announced which games they will be broadcasting.

    I'd suggest somewhere in the vicinity of 4-6 games for the year. But I'm guessing.

    I actually disagree, in the sense that a player will not play out of position to win the game for our reserves side.

    As I am not too familiar with the lesser likes in our squad allow me to use say Tex as an example, he will play up forward regardless of what is happening down back. Similarly a guy like Rutten will be placed in the defence.

    Well thats my opinion, Im not saying I am right, but that is how I think the reserves will play out.

    Ratings will dictate their broadcast IMO.

    Meaning first Crows, then Power, then any other SANFL side on show.

    That's what I'm saying. They will want to win and play the players in that position to win the game.

    Basically what I'm saying is - 10 minutes to go in the 4th quarter abd the scores are level. I don't think they will experiment. I can not see Tex and Rutten swapping around. I don't think they will chuck Graham to CHB and move Siggions into the ruck.

    They will play to win with development as a second option.

    We are almost on the same page.:p

    Tex goes down (heaven forbid) or is taken off, do you think Rutten (where his player has come off for example) will be moved to FF to win the game???

    Another scenario Crows reserves are down by a couple of goals with 10 minutes to go, Tex has had a good game in the first half since his injury and is rested for our game against the Hawks.

    Are you suggesting that Tex comes off the bench to win the reserves game??

    We both dont have any idea to be honest until the season plays out, but I wouldnt want us to experiment "UNLESS" Sando wants to and rejig the structure.
