Title: Adelaide 2018 Premiership Season Mega Thread
Post by: tbagrocks on April 16, 2018, 09:52:15 PM
Shower me, take a frogging shower! Lose, win and look great, win well, lose like an uncoordinated bunch of fairies (Not what I really wanted to say)

But for months now we all knew something was on the nose at Adelaide, masked by that big impressive win against the Tigers

Flower me though, other than a few injuries, I have no idea why this club lost so bad last Friday or three weeks ago. What Crows will front next week v the Swans? ???

Yes I see how even this comp is and how easily good teams lose but still, Adelaide with all their "Mind training" Was supposed to be in that top bracket again. But inconsistency says something we did not expect

It's the culture problem you guys have, won't find consistency until Tex is relieved from the captaincy ;D
I ain't going through this week without Showdown banter

the great man (The Texan) Is very much the leader of the AFC with Sloaney. Two great leaders back on the park this week is good so, I hope that the inconsistency ha now passed

As Richie Douglas said this week "Top form is not far off" After two very, very easy wins. If the real Adelaide stands up this week then I will choose to believe "They're back"

Hopefully I wont need to add differently to this thread come Sunday ???

EDIT: Btw, good luck Silky ;)

This, does not look good for Rory going forward :-\ Which is a shame because he's like the only player I enjoy on that team.

Only if Burton and Hass are gone or major changes are made by them, this is gonna ruin our year, absolute waste of a season.

An article from the paper this week "Who are you never able to forgive" A vote on Adelaide Now

Regarding the departures of that SPUDgunston, Tippo, Dangerflog and the Leaver.

I don't that Tippett cost us draft picks, got us Matty Crouch anyway! I don't care that Adelaide didn't offer lever enough soon enough, I still hate that flog face Gunston (Don't enter a professional sport at 18 if you cant handle moving cities ::) but  ......

I will NEVER, NEVER, forgive that soft, mummy's boy, FIGJAM Patrick Dangerflog ::)  You just suck Paddy! "Oh, i'm a 26yr old GROWN MAN but I nee to run back to my mummy"

    End rant .....

I actually just wanted to ask everyone that same question the AN poll did :P  Which of those four do you hate for leaving the most?

I'll play fair! Let's start with Gibbsy then shall we?

At 26 when Bryce became a free agent, he instead re-signed with the Blues, much to my disgust :P  Oh a loyal man! His whole career at a bottom club! Then, still at a bottom club and now 28, two years into a new contract and now suddenly, a new baby to raise. Decides to come back to Adelaide, Carlton and Crows failed to agree on two first rounders for Gibbsy. Yeah, some mummy' boy

Dangerfield, no baby, no wife, at  top club finals bound year in year out with only one excuse "I miss my mummy"

Bryce Gibbs finally did return to Adelaide a year later, Crows gave up more than scummy Cats did for Brownlow medallist Dangerflog too! At age 29, with a young child (Not that it stops top tennis, NBA or Footballers around the world being far away from their family months at a time) Just sayn

At age 29 , Bryce decides on one last crack at success after being at the worst football team in modern memory (Having re-signed for them three years earlier, ignoring FA and the "So called" go-home factor). Yeah, that's completely the same ::)

Hmmm nah, he and Mardi got married in January the year after he left and he went home to start a family, which they have now done, so I dunno if those arguments can really be used. Family is obviously more important to some than others, like it seems to be to Patrick more than yourself, you clearly don't understand so it's time to get over it.

Had a mrs, went home to where they are both from to start a family. I reckon he'd be taking a pay cut too. Loyalty to family, and it ain't easy having kids away from family. That's why I don't begrudge Gibbs going home to Adelaide, but you can't have you cake and eat it too mate...

Bryce Gibbs finally did return to Adelaide a year later, Crows gave up more than scummy Cats did for Brownlow medallist Dangerflog too! At age 29, with a young child (Not that it stops top tennis, NBA or Footballers around the world being far away from their family months at a time) Just sayn

His currency is irrelevant, Geelong actually did a trade with Adelaide which they didn't even have to do. He was a restricted free agent. Adelaide paying more for Gibbs is a bit of an embarrassment if you ask me. Should have made it happen the year before.

At age 29 , Bryce decides on one last crack at success after being at the worst football team in modern memory (Having re-signed for them three years earlier, ignoring FA and the "So called" go-home factor). Yeah, that's completely the same ::)

I like how you rewrite the facts to suit you. He went home mate, he has a young family. By signing on the year before he made Adelaide pay for him to ease his guilt for leaving.



I've never understood this comparison of international sports to AFL. Tennis grandslams last only a couple of weeks at a time so they don't move anywhere they don't have to, NFL players earn an average of $USD 2 million a year, which leaves a lot of chump change to make up for the difficulties of being away from your family, particularly when you want to start one of your own. Oh, and NBA players average 6.4mil. You could move your whole family to you, buy them each a mansion and have plenty left over to ensure they never have to work another day in their lives.

Even in MBL, NFL, NBA, you still get people moving for families. At this point I figure you're so one-eyed you'd boo Beams if you were a Collingwood supporter.

The others I agree with, but there's a lot more to Tennis than just 4 Grand Slams. You're talking 30-40 weeks of the year away from home if you're making a living out of tennis

Yeah i had a read about it after posting this. Really a sport of passion because you don’t make much outside the top 100 in the world. But with Tennis, everyone has to travel to compete so it isnt comparable to team sports.

Com'on seriously? When I was 17 and left Adelaide to pursue a professional sporting career (Apprentice Jockey) I came back at 18 after missing my mummy.  But at least I admitted it sheesh. If you are 18 and want to play PROFESSIONAL sport, then be professional.

Plenty and I mean a lot of Golf or tennis wannabies play all over the world weekly just trying to hit a hot patch where they can cash in and nail that top 100-200 players

But I still do not know why I am bothering to argue with a troll. I know most people here aren't smart enough to get what ever the frog I actually say but then, then there are trolls ;)

      Think you'll have a pretty good idea where you're at facing the Tiges at the G, top placed and 17 straight wins at the ground.

      Reckon they'll play the richmond theme song and blindfold all the players on the way over? I know I'll be doing that on the train down.

      But why does that matter? Basically every decent player could probably get more elsewhere if they wanted to leave. Sloane clearly doesn't want to leave and is much happier playing in Adelaide.

      So why does it matter that he may be earning less money when he is in a working environment that he clearly loves being at, rather than going somewhere he does not want to work even though he would earn more money? Sorry, i totally forgot that i have to spell things out for you.
