A scapegoat us someone who takes the blame for something they never did. Warner is no scapegoat.
But he’s done his time so he should be in the team as very few doubt he very good with the bat.

Australian cricket’s prodigal son returns at Eden Gardens

That man was a kad

Ravi Ashwin deploys controversial mankad to dismiss Jos Buttler

As a former high school teacher, it’s not money, it’s kid’s attitudes.
Kids aren’t prepared to pound a court, a net, a track, a field or a road anymore.
Below 22° is too cold, above 28° is too hot.
When weekly school sport is on you have to shovel the kids off their backsides to play whatever is their chosen(?) sport. Retrieving a ball is done with all the exuberance of a comatose sloth.
We don’t need money, programattic specificity, world’s best practice, psychometric analysis or any other buzzwords. We need parents to parent, job done.

Should there be more sport funding for NSW public schools?

I think that’s harsh. He had idiot South African ADMINISTRATORS mocking him. Kabada also got off scott free.

Warner was seething revenge.

I don’t think we will administrators mocking players anymore.

Give him a break

Warner can flourish in middle order at World Cup

I miss Ian Healy and Chappelli.
And, of course, Richie

Warner's stunning return a World Cup boost for Australia

He had an outrage outage

Former England paceman unloads on 'disgraceful' Bancroft captaincy appointment

And Finch has displayed some nous and focus after a pretty horrible run. I don’t have special tv so I’m not sure whether it was your typical flat ODI wicket.

Unbeaten 153 from Finch, Aussies win again

Warner is the man despite what we may or may not think of him. He can remove all distractions to monster an attack. We can’t not have him back.

Unbeaten 153 from Finch, Aussies win again

He’s done the punishment. What more do you want? I am less than pleased he has not done the ‘mea culpa’. But that’s my issue. He’s done the allotted penalty with what the CA deemed effective.

From a cricket perspective it really is a good showing.

Good old Warner, give him a finch and he takes a mile.

I’m so badly overreacting l can’t write anything other than to say l can’t write anything. Overreacting badly.

Eight talking points from AFL Round 1

But has every Vic club accepted interstaters knowing that they would come from interstate and further accept that they should not keep it as a Vic-centric competition?

Should the AFL adopt a conference ladder system? The home ground advantage dilemma and a solution

Still itsa bigger impost than a 20 minute drive from the condo to the ground. WC & FD may also have 20 minute drive from their condo to the ground, just with the extra 30/40 drive to airport, 2hr booking in, 4hr flight, 1hr to get out of airport.

Tell me which you’d rather do?

I had the same thought re what day.

Should the AFL adopt a conference ladder system? The home ground advantage dilemma and a solution

“and I genuinly believe that had Fremantle had kicked 2 of the sitters they missed in the first 1/4 in 2013 they would have beaten Hawthorn.”
——
Jet lag?????????????????? Time in the air, at altitude, affects your physiology?
Hawthorn rocked up in their WRXs, BMWs, Audis and Nissans after a 22 minute drive. Freo docked after what would’ve been an 8hr trip. Prep time and driving across Perth to get to the airport included.

This beggars belief;
“Furthermore, interstate supporters will argue that they travel far more than Melbourne clubs. I don’t consider the actual process of travel in Australia to be a significant factor contributing to poor performance”

Should the AFL adopt a conference ladder system? The home ground advantage dilemma and a solution

I’m sorry I couldn’t read through all of this.
A massive set of flaws;
1) ‘Continental’ teams get very little experience playing games at the G.
2) Melbourne teams won’t go to the airport that often.
——
Imagine being the Weagles, Crows, Lions, etc arriving at the G, for the GF, not having played one single game at the venue (for the season). Same could be said for the Demons or Pies arriving in Adelaide or Perth for a preliminary final.
——
Australian Football, and l don’t mean insipid soccer, is an egalitarian sport.
Mess with it at your peril.
To paraphrase the great Vic Richardson,
“Whatever you do, don’t [ think ] like a Victorian”

Perhaps we could seek entry to Oceania.

Easy road to 2022? Forget it!

We need a person running the AFL to actually sound like he wants a Tas Team. Till we get rid of Gomer Pyle that aint gonna happen. Tassie, historically, is the third oldest AFL area. They live, breathe, eat Footy.
—-
He is an embarrassment to the sport. I imagine, as a player, he would have never laid a hip n shoulder. That’s if he ever did.

Tassie deserves better.

Time for the Tasmanian Devils in the AFL

The two go hand-in-hand.
1) no playing across the line
2) will bring runs

Five games an eternity in fickle selection surrounds

Considerable depth …..of mediocrity

Five games an eternity in fickle selection surrounds

Well I hope you are right.

I don’t like the new hands-in-the-back rule. Too grey. Hands for the ball… great. Hands on the back makes a lie of paying the man in front.
—-
I know the intent of the new ruling. It’s just that players WILL push the boundaries and umpires be too soft.

I’m feeling Tex has lost it. I hope not. He looks too stiff in pursuit of the ball

The AFL community is secretly annoyed that Gomer Pyle is still charge of the AFL.
—-
I just heard him waffle about Tasmania NOT getting a team ANYTIME SOON.
—-
Please get rid of him. Get Ian Chappell into run the joint. Or at least Sheeds.

Why the AFL is secretly nervous about season 2019

Great to see. Maybe Smith and Warner should go play for those teams. Learn some pie-eating.
