Season 2018 - Sydney - Diggers.. come at him


#702

I’m not the one ascribing every single development in history to the west Ouyen reserves league.


#703

You should pay better attention then.


#704

WA did anticipate International Rules with their round footies.


#705

You leave our weird* WA footballs alone.

*not as weird as those SA abomination though


#706

What the hell, man?
It’s like a kid’s balloon!


#707

Faulkners suck. Too pointy for a start. Very hard as well.

Nothing like kicking a brand new Sherrin. A very specific and special pleasure.


#708

Burley’s look strange but come off the foot alright.

Speaking of which, I recall Burley balls were used in games in WA for at least the 87 season, possibly longer but when did they change to Sherrin balls exclusively?


#709

I reckon Ross Faulkner’s are the best, particularly for torps.


#710

They used Ross Faulkner in 91 and 92, I think they alternated them in quarters in matches that involved the crows. Not sure exactly when they went to share in exclusively

Sydney use this integrated app to “manage” players. Interesting that Buddy features as the marquee player for the website. I guess he is one who is being very actively “managed” or the Swans wish they can “manage” to get more than 15 games out of him per year from 2019 on.

Dude’s fifty.
He should be managed.


#713

I believe this kind of software is used by most clubs to manage their players - These days players are scrutinised to an inch of their lives.
