I don't mind this guy and his passion to be honest.

I reckon this tweet from him is even better:

Wanting the crows to wear a heritage jumper to remember AAMI stadium.

Where can I sign up?
"... a playing jumpers with vertical pylons celebrating the jetties and pontoons of West Lakes ..."

There are no jetties at West Lakes, only pontoons which are horizontal not vertical. So the Camry Crows' hoops are celebrating the pontoons of West Lakes.

Maybe a Jetty Surf at West Lakes Mall has him confused.

I dont get this stuff at all.

Reality is that if you step back from all this, and remove bias...

Last year Adelaide were one of the most embarrassingly bad spoon winners this century. Their pass mark for progress for 2021 was 5 wins. 6 wins gets a B+, anything over 6 would be a massive overperformance and turn around.

Currently we are only 7 rounds in and they have already won 3 games (albeit one with a fair bit of umpiring assistance). As much as I hate to say it they should be ecstatic with where they are right now, not just scoring 3 wins, but also being competitive and pushing decent clubs.

To be disappointed now given where they were at 12 months ago would be utterly delusional, yet it seems thats the message from many. Bizarre stuff.

It’s a bit waking up today knowing we just can’t cut it can we, we won’t win a flag under Ken.
Probably not. But it is not only Kens fault. We have senior players who are not leaders and who cannot stand up when it counts. These same guys have been letting us down for years. And I don’t care if Ken leaves either. Sick to death of the known outcomes before we play certain opposition.
