  1. Before the game I turned to the mrs and said "I bet we get Beathed". Nothing to add.
  2. We want Peru to win big, by 3 would be great. We need to beat Peru anyway to advance so Peru remain on 3 we move to 4. Then if Denmark beats France we advance with 4 ahead of France on 3. They draw and we advance over France on goal difference. If France win we want France to win by 1 more than we beat Peru by to guarantee progression otherwise it comes down to how many goals are scored. So big Peru win over France and we stand a very good chance of progressing if we beat Peru.
  3. Jarryd Hayne. It's been his lifelong dream to coach an A League team.
  4. Season has been a disaster and honestly I'm not unhappy to see the back of it. So, nothing to add except a question for those far more knowledgeable about the rules than I: In the first half I believe it was Carrusca had a clear run on goal and was pulled down from behind just outside the box with the defender not attempting to play at the ball and only the keeper in front. I was under the impression that is a red card any day of the week, except perhaps KGJ day?
  5. I'm just as interested in how much money is being wasted on security for the last two games considering there won't be an active presence. If the talk is to be believed we were to get beefed up security and police to protect us from those big bad FCK FFA t-shirts which if worn too often will lead to the end of civilisation. Or something. We haven't even touched on why almost 10k paid up non-RBB members don't bother turning up any more. Is that also the RBBs fault? One could argue that the big bad RBB scares them away until you take into account the game with the active bay closed was a record low attendance in our clubs HAL history, so lack of active support didn't bring hordes of non-active members to the game. Dead atmosphere means less people renew. If even a quarter of those 10k don't renew next year that 120k doesn't look so big in the grander scheme of things.
  6. Been lurking for a while but this subject really irked me. A lot. My limited understanding of IP law, having an acquaintance who is an IP lawyer, is that to retain ownership of a trademark you need to actively defend it. For example of the RBB had a trademark on "WSFW" then it would be hard for them to stop others using it as this application being lodged unopposed means they were not actively defending it. However, the converse isn't true. Just because someone doesn't actively defend their trademark doesn't mean that you can claim ownership of it yourself. All it means is that it becomes fair game for everyone to use. RBB and Wanderers membership are not FFA employees so the creation of WSFW was not done as part of carrying out their paid work for FFA. I am not a lawyer but I am struggling to see the legal grounds that FFA have to claim ownership of this. I thought this would fall under "proof of prior art" i.e. it can be easily demonstrated that someone else was using WSFW well before FFA lodged the trademark application for it.
  7. Straight through active entrance on printed card no hassles no wait
  8. RBB and received email just before 8, Mrs got hers just before 9. Worth it to Keep checking all morning as well as junk email folders.
  9. You will have to expand a bit on that one, not sure what you mean.
  10. I'm looking forward to our first Championship so we can dispense with discussing how many grand finals we have been in. It is the equivalent to saying "we have won no premierships but have finished second three times".
  11. Slow clap for the guy who gave me a spiel about how I was sitting in his seat so he guessed he would have to now find a way to squeeze in somewhere else even though he was supposed to have good seats. No, I don't feel sorry for you and I'm not moving, if you want active then you get all it entails.
  12. We lost it in the midfield, they just beasted us with size which is why the game totally changed once Butters was replaced by the much taller Vidosic. Jamo and Neville were constantly beaten for pace. I suspect last week took much more out of the tank than was expected as it looked like Adelaide were a step faster all around.
