Sounds like a demotion, we must be shit payers.
Why a demotion? He was comms manager with us.
Cos it's the SACA.
Redbacks have made a grand final more recently than us!
Drugs Are Bad Mackay?
True, and all of 100 people showed up to watch it !!
I know there was more as I was there
And could do a head count I'm sure
No Tasmanians so it was easy
jeez I was looking back and didn't realise just how much went wrong for us heading into the 2006 preliminary final and during the match. Sorry to re open the past and how painful it was but here's everything that went wrong just in case you weren't aware.
Missing from 06 prelim
Mark Ricciuto- 44 goals during 06
Trent Hentschel- 42 goals during 06
Ken Mcgregor- 21 goals during 06
During Match issues
Rhett Biglands off early with injury forcing 33 year old Matthew Clarke to ruck for duration of match against 25 year old Dean Cox at his peak.
Bock playing up forward instead of down back
Scott Welsh 1 goal, Jason Porplyzia Nil goals, Ian Perrie Nil goals, Scott Thompson Nil goals, Brent Reilly 0.2 and Brett Burton 2.3
Such a shame that we had such bad luck with injury and form at the most crucial time of the season, I have no doubt we would have won the 2006 finals if it wasn't for all of that. Not too mentioned playing a drugged up West Coast. Sorry again but just never realised the extent of our bad luck in 2006
I thought Biglands got injured either just before half time or in the 3rd quarter. We were ahead by 17 points? ( memory ) at half time?
Yes its interesting looking back and it seems that lack of a good tap ruck led to the goals drying up
Yeah you could be right, it is such a shame we had such bad luck. I definitely feel Biglands was the biggest key missing that year like you said a good tap ruck led to less goals.

Just before half time, VB took him out.
Nigel Smart has been tweeting about e-sports a little bit lately
It seems so out of place.
I wonder if the club is researching e-sports as an income source, potentially owning an e-sports team.
There will be a huge amount of money made in e-sports over the next 20 years.
Can you summarize E-sports for me please.
Though reading between the lines I assume its Fantasy based leagues that then have placed bets on using bitcoin or something similar?
No, it's teams that play video games professionally. Play in tournaments for large sums of prize money and sponsorships. It's becoming a trendy thing to invest in, even Shaq owns his own team in the US.
I wonder if Nigel's on his way out.
Nigel's surely been hacked or maybe the effects of David King's 98 GF bump are continuing to surface in weird ways
I can't wait for the time when we have to eat virtual food. Virtual everything is coming. I know some people who already take virtual showers.
Just leave my E-Girlfriend alone
It's a billion dollar industry that has consistently grown by about 50% every year for the last 5 years.
There are massive companies in the tech industry and e-sports teams are the perfect thing for them to sponsor.
I think a lot of the growth of e-sports in the last 5 years is because it doesn't get influenced by corrupt administrators, doesn't have biased umpires, doesn't have drug cheats and isn't going to get destroyed by (fear of) concussion lawsuits.
The problem with it is it's not a sport that promotes fitness so most of it's "athletes" are not real marketable as individuals.
Amazon bought twitch.tv for $1bil in 2014 because they think it will eventually become the largest sporting industry in the world and they want to be the world's broadcaster of it.
E-Sports is huge. Massive. More dollars and viewers than most sporting competitions. Teams are getting multi-million sponsorship deals and win enormous amounts of prize money.
Doesn't sound like my cup of tea, but good luck to them I suppose.
