I would ban caffeine drinks and only give them caffeine in pill form. They want drugs or alcohol (in season) -> there's the door.

You said you would ban caffeine drinks and make the players take pills. If they didn't like it they were out the door. Coffee and tea are caffeine drinks. Caffeine is a drug.

So here we have you arguing with me on the basis of something I didn't say then arguing with me on the basis of something you didn't say after I questioned what you actually said.

Maybe 90% of the arguments you have with me would be avoided if you took the time and care to read what was actually said instead of what your preconceptions think should have been said so you can win an argument and type what you actually mean instead of something vaguely resembling it in a few places.:thumbsu:
Because you were talking about energy drinks (specifically red bull). Therefore, you could imply that is what I was also talking about - especially when Tea had not been mentioned previously. Surprised you didn't mention choc milk too :drunk:

lol. You make arguments for the sake of it. That's why you contradict yourself more often than not. 3 certainties in life - death, taxes, and I'm going to wake up to ferball quoting me with some nonsense.

Pro tip to avoid that last one:


Don't type nonsense.

Properly!

God who cares about list age

What matters is good footy players on the park regardless of how soon they'll retire

People were jumping up and down about us not having the tools to replace Waite before he retired but Larkey stood up, scooter will be the same. One of the guys will succeed or we will bring someone else in who can.

Geelong can keep bringing in mature bodies every few years to keep competitive, same with hawks but they also have some good young guys, every club manages it's own list in its own way, and I daresay most clubs would be ok with bringing in a proven older guy over a talented youngster if it made the team better.
It's really silly how much stock people put into age, average or median.
But then again I'd rather my team be able to win games now rather than be potentially good some time in the future. A bird in the hand and all that
