    Pictorial, or pectoral?

    Bad enough when Bucknor used to nod his head to give them out, rather than using the appointed gesture... this bloke is taking it to a whole new level :thumbsdown:

    So, this is a bit like at Cape Town that time, when Clarke made 151 of 284, and then we bowled South Africa out for 96. This'd be a great time not to get bowled out for 47... runs this arvo should deliver the urn.

    Bluemour Discussion Thread XVIII - Coniglio means Rabbit in Italian!

    Love EB's posts - I always read them in the voice of the late Gene Wilder. The best part about it is that we know exactly what he will say, if we annoy him too much and he decides he doesn't want to post here any more:

    Care to explain the application of that logic to the retention of Simpson? Because I can't see it.

    Bluemour Discussion Thread XVII - Coniglio means Rabbit in Italian!

    Yes, and I think sometimes nuance is lost. Not least the onus on the Club to make strategic and tactical decisions every day of its existence, while those of us in the cheap seats get to pick and choose which issues we care about. Plus, of course, not many of us care to backtrack on things we...

    Bluemour Discussion Thread XVII - Coniglio means Rabbit in Italian!

    This would be a pretty boring place if we all toed the Club line on everything, don't you think? Respectful diversity of opinion is a good thing; we could certainly have done with more of it in the dying days of the Elliott administration...

    Toast Thanks Daisy

    Sure, but those boxes are all ticked. If we were really concerned about future form and the likelihood of 'old-body' injuries, we wouldn't be recontracting Simpson. We know dollars are not the central issue, from Daisy's previous contract negotiations, and because we paid 46 last year (our...

    Toast Thanks Daisy

    OK, but we don't need to cut Thomas to make room for these new signings. Why not keep all of them, and jettison a Garlett or similar? The list management arguments don't stack up, unless they cull all of the bottom 6-7 on the list (including the contracted Polson), as well as Thomas. But I am...

    Toast Thanks Daisy

    Yeah, I almost hope so, sadly. Because if that particular indiscretion was a career-ender, despite his on-field form, then I am surprised and disappointed.

    Toast Thanks Daisy

    Possibly, but it doesn't square with media reports. On two separate occasions in the last month, the mainstream media has reported that Thomas has sat down with the Club to talk about a contract... that suggests to me that Thomas has been 50/50 for a while, and this week the Club made the...

    Pick Swap 2019 - How Crow Can You Go?

    And your scenario is probably the worst case. It's not out of the question that it's pick 7 or 8 coming back to us, especially the way the Crows are travelling right now. There are sets of results that see Adelaide finish 12th or even 13th from here, and they're not especially implausible, with...

    Toast Dale Thomas

    ... except for it being the wrong decision. Has walked into the 22 (when available) for years, and will poll well in the B&F. And it's not like we needed his list spot for yet another kid - we're 16th, so there's no shortage of lesser-talented players to delist instead. Very disappointing...

    Toast Thanks Daisy

    Last paragraph spot on. Never thought I would have said it a couple of years ago, but I am bitterley disappointed with this decision. Mostly because it seems to me just flat-out wrong. He's played AFL every week he has been available, for years. And he will indeed be prominent in the B&F...
