In some quarters they would be sound arguments, Petty -- foreign quarters!

If I ever opened a cash bureau all kind of money would be accepted! Apart from goats. They don't convert very well y'see. Now sheep convert excellently. They take their chance when they come about, that's for sure!

Which should have read:

"is the ONLY sport in Forumshire worthy of it's OWN thread created by me (i.e ORWELL!)"

No need to thank me!

Long live the Lions...!

And is there no finer observer of the sporting life to have done it? (The answers btw Ally is "No.") It's not like anyone else here would have had the nous to do it. Oh Ally, you are so wise in some ways, but so obtuse in others.... Rolling Eyes

One reason folk should barrack for the Tiges!

Jack Dyer = Captain Blood. Famous Aussie Rules star and later a Sports Broadcaster. (Played and Coached from the 30's to the 60's. Commentated up to the 90's).


Here are some of his commentary gems: called "Dyerisms":

(From Wikipedia):

Not the most articulate on-air personality, Dyer's malapropisms became legendary. According to press obituaries, he was responsible for such gems as

"Yes, we had an enjoyable time on the French Riverina" (The Riverina is a highly productive agricultural region of south-western New South Wales)

and describing the problems with younger players by saying that "All they want to do is sit around and smoke marinara".

...

"I won't say anything in case I say something."

"Bartlett's older than he's ever been before."

"Johnston missed one from the 10 yard square – it was impossible to miss that."

"The only way to tackle Justin Madden. I don't know."

"That's the beauty of being small – your hands are close to your feet."

"Bamblett made a great debut last week, and an even better one today."

"The ball goes to Marceesie … Marcheson … McKann, er …" before co-commentator Ian Major interjected: "Actually, Jack I don't think Marchesani was in that passage of play."

"Mark Lee's long arms reaching up like giant testicles."

"It's as dark out there as the Black Hole of Dakota."

"The goal posts are moving so fast I can't keep up with the play."

And on World Of Sport, Dyer declared that Fitzroy had "copulated to the opposition".


I think my beloved Jack was in fact a hobbit from Bywater! Very Happy

Thought I better bring this thread back to a prime position. Only about four months until the new season starts. We've picked up some good recruits. I fully expect big things this year. And, unlike every other season in the past thirty years when my full expectations were dashed, I fully expect these big things to eventuate this time. Nod

AFL starts tonight for the Tigers!

At last - a real sport to watch again...

Hooray! cheers

I've signed you all up as Honourary members of the Tiger Army, my friends. (I've decided to not give you a choice, as AFL is confusing enough for the unititiated without troubling you with deciding on who you like the best.

I'll keep you posted.

{{{Chris, I've decided to tolerate your Weagles --- because you originally came over from some unmentionable country, and didn't know any better when you first came over all sports-ignorant and naive. That's amazing tolerance coming from a Tigers supporter as you know. Very Happy --- Of course, I'll mark you down as a 'secret' Tigers supporter! That's only fair! Nod }}}

It was worse at the end... Sad

But I won't give up yet... If you're not an Eternal Optimist, you can't be a Tiger Supporter, now can you?

May as well make this the Tigerland/AFL thread, Chris. Really, this kind of thing is too good for those who follow the Minor Northern Team Sports... Might make them crabbit knowing AFL (Aussie Rues) is sooo far away from their cold and boring North parts.... Nod

The below copied from the "All things (minor) Sporting."

Get hold of one of the recent Grand Finals, Eldo.

Spectacular "marks", like the one you just saw.

Fifty to sixty metre kicks (like your Gridiron kickers kick - except nearly every Aussie Rules player at the top level can kick ' em).

Every player can go anywhere on the ground (pitch, park).

Kick the ball, handball the ball, mark the ball, twist and turn, tackle anyone with the ball, fly into the sky (like the video), you even get one point for missing a goal (so long as you don't miss by too far, it's called a 'behind' - a goal is six points).

Democracy gone crazy.

Oh yes, never mind the rules, there are too many to learn, and they change every year anyhow!

No padding or crash helmets, played at break neck speed - and if you fake an injury or play for a 'free kick' your own supporters kill you. A game for Men.

It might not, however, appeal to your American womanly sensibilities... Very Happy

The Great Tigers killed - for all their schemin's -
the slow and useless proud ol' Demons,
Now one from three we're cock-a-hoop,
Next we'll squash the Cats like ripe fruit!
