I doubt the problem with the camp was any particular event. In fact, some of the ridiculous assertions, ie Williams “tied naked to trees”, made it easier for the club to avoid the real issue. Which was that there was a camp in the first place. The camp represented the coaching group’s apportionment of 100% of the blame for our GF loss to the player’s mental strength. No responsibility at all for selecting 4 tall forwards, 3 tall defenders (1 carrying) and zero flexibility against a pressure and running machine on a warm day at the MCG. We were f’ed on Thursday night when Pyke smirked, “no changes”. But it was all the player’s fault that they got run into the ground.
What was Chocco doing there?

We loved Adelaide, have been there a few times now. Not everyone has a need to be going to nightclubs etc. It's people that make a place, get togethers, parties at houses etc.

It used to be called making your own fun, singularly or as a group. We always find something to see or do when there, (admit we are a lot older though) but still...

It's a lovely city, easy to get around, love the architecture of the ordinary homes and buildings. Could live there easily.

The first time we went there we were astounded how nice it was and called it Australia's hidden gem....we also don't understand the ridicule it gets.

It can’t be that bad; Adelaide was just rated the 10th most liveable city in the world.

I’m not from Adelaide btw, I just don’t get the hate it gets. You could live in a lot worse places.
Melbourne was 2nd and Sydney 3rd....haha

What can you do in Melbourne or Sydney you can't do here? Never understood this

We have all the same stuff with less people getting in the way. Opera houses and bridges don't count as who really gives a f*ck about either?
You can avoid South Australians.

Quite sure we have clean water...
We get the same crap about living in Hobart. Going by the comments on BigFooty you'd think they are all insatiable party goers who demand excitement every second of every day. The reality is that they are sitting on their asses making big talk on Bigfooty. Any attempt to deny this will only prove it.

There's a rumour going around that Adelaide is about to get its first nightclub next year..

In all seriousness, it's a population centre of 1.5 million of course it has night clubs, bars, entertainment etc

Of course it has nightclubs, I don't recall saying it didn't..

...just that not everyone has a need to go to them or else there is nothing for them to do. Plenty to do if you look for it, so don't understand the constant narrative that it is a boring place.

It’s not boring it’s just a shit place with shit people.
