    Late notice, I know, but I thought I'd post this anyway. Best GF party in Los Angeles!!!

    Player Watch Billy Frampton - Traded to Collingwood

    My question (and maybe this is dumb) is.... why didn't we use Billy as a ruckman and offload ROB? Billy Frampton seems like he'd give a lot more to the side than a guy who's got questionable athelticism (at best) and can't kick. I would have at least given him a run of games as our full time...

    News Giants were nearly formed as an all Irish club called ‘Sydney Celtic ‘

    This would have to be one of the most delusional ideas I've ever heard of. Nobody except an extremely small minority roots for the Boston Celtics because they are "irish." People are fans of the team because they are from Boston or the New England area, and because they had a sustained period...

    NO TROLLS Taylor Walker racial slur

    Honestly in the clip I watched he didn’t. And maybe Tony is a bad example because he is friends with Tex. Heres a quote from Andrew Krakouer for example: But Krakouer earlier this week told SEN that education is more important than punishment. “People are saying that Taylor (Walker’s) contract...

    NO TROLLS Taylor Walker racial slur

    Brother you are completely confused. Let me be clear: What was saying is that we don’t really know what the true reaction of all the indigenous players is. Some might be angry and some might not be that upset. And that is a fact. Not every indigenous person is going to be as upset as Eddie was...

    NO TROLLS Taylor Walker racial slur

    Sorry, I just had to respond to this piece right here. Look bro, I don't know anything about you but I'd hazard a good guess that I have about 1000 times more experience in dealing with people of diverse backgrounds, owing to the fact that I grew up in a city that is about 1000 times more...

    NO TROLLS Taylor Walker racial slur

    That's a good question and honestly I don't know exactly what would happen. Depends on the profile of the player involved I guess. Most likely he would be fired, but again, that would be more to do with the team not wanting to look bad than with actual hurt to the abused player, especially...

    NO TROLLS Taylor Walker racial slur

    I think one of the things that is going on here (and it's the same in my country a lot of the times too) is that people throw around the word "racist" way too easily. The thing is, people say dumb sh!t all the time. It doesn't make them a racist, it just makes them an idiot who lost control of...

    Strategy Clarko available for 2022, surely we must have a crack

    Jesus some of these posts are laughable. All this pseudo-analysis of how many games we've won etc. is just all nonsense because it's ignoring the basic premise of this team: we are young and rebuilding. "We've regressed this year" is also nonsense. We are blooding a bunch of kids with less...

    The official Adelaide Crows BF board "NFL chat thread to help US supporters through the wee hours"

    Browns going down on Sunday... obviously. But it will be a hell of a game and the Browns look legitimately good for the first time in my memory, which is long. Having said, that IF my Steelers lose I will probably shift allegiance to the Browns for the remainder of the playoffs. For NFC it's...

    News Dermott Brereton taps Tex on the shoulder

    I've been reading through these posts and normally I don't contribute but some of the comments on here are just idiotic. #1: This season is a joke and we are rebuilding. Watch the games, players are not playing 100%, all of them know this is a write-off. We are swapping people around like...

    Adelaide's decline

    If you say so. For me, I think it absolutely DOES affect the season and the eventual premier, and I'd hazard a guess there's a lot of other fans who agree with me. As for 1924, it clearly doesn't apply to this discussion due to the facts that you've already asserted (not a national...

    Adelaide's decline

    Honestly, if the I was the Crows admin, I'd be seriously considering wooden spoon this year as a strategic decision. This season isn't really going to matter in the long-term history of the league. There will always be an asterisk next to whoever wins the flag, so why not bottom out and score...

    List Mgmt. Who is leaving

    This. Face it, we have had a bunch of kids sitting in the two's who many feel should already be playing and it's about time we cleared the path for that to happen. Many of those leaving are for money, which being an American myself, is standard operating procedure and nothing to attribute to...

    Analysis Interview with Binuk Kodiuwakku - AFC's player analytics expert

    But this is exactly what I'm talking about. Lachlan Murphy has been given a real good block of games (although he is still very young) and at this point we kind of know what we have. So the option for us should be: do we drop him to the 2's for another year entirely to see if he develops...
