The 2018 Benfti "in absentia" Hype thread


#302

I wish we could retrospectively sign him as a zone selection.

He is playing for Tiwi right now.


#303

Its on tv so why would you watch in the heat of the day?


#304

Because you like watching footy?


#305

There is watching sport a smart way and then there is watching sport out in the elements.
Did you see the cricket Pak Vs Aus?
The crowd numbers would be similar at both NT and Dubai Stadium.
But if you like watching sport out in the elements credit to you my friend.


#306

Plenty of people watch country footy in the freezing rain, or in the high thirties.

I don’t think they need credit for doing so.


#307

No they may need something else though…


#308

Do tell.
I’m honestly intrigued.


#309

Look I think the point is watch sport in your own comfort.


#310

But then you’d never know the joy of a fire in a 44 gallon drum.

Oh well, if you want to be weird and stay home all your life, you do you boo.


#311

But i don’t stay home. I pick and choose the games I attend. Mate beers are cheaper and the air con goes along way at a bar with water misters in a ■■■■■■■ hot day, then sitting in the heat at an oval in a dry area ■■■■ that!


#312

I been to a game in the pouring rain and its no fun. It was cold, wet low scoring shitfest


#313

Wait…the ground is a dry area?

Sir, I have done you a disservice.
My apologies.


#314

Capture


#315

Yeah that’s why alot of the crowd stay in the air-con/ members bar side. And its like that from Broome across to Cairns. Cops are strict in NT.


#316

In this thread? Really?


#317

Adam Sambono who would he most likely go to?
And what of Neagle now that he has a broken arm?


#318

Surely no one would, … ??

Amended anyway.


#319

Everywhere’s a dry area if you’re 13.


#320

Imo Sambono is up against it to be drafted.

No doubt he is talented, but AFL teams require more defensively from stay at home small forwards and the kid will get snapped in half by a light breeze.

He’ll need to play SANFL, WAFL or VFL to give himself the best chance


#321

As for Neagle, rookie he might be a shot for us depending on spots available. We’re almost certainly taking Fletcher there. Mynott will take a spot and Draper and McNeice may both be kept on the RList too
