2023 Season About to Start


1st up though, Dougwe's Aussies were just beaten in a play off for a finals berth in World Baseball Championship.

 

Snappy Bob has 2 handy draft players making their debut this week for Caaarlton, one from Tassie, one from Wodonga.

 

Can the dynamic Ruck Duo, TWO G's, get the Dees the ultimate result ?

Dunno about that Craig, but I reckon they could be a bit of a handful. In the meantime I will continue to say Carna Cats!!!

(Each season I wonder when they will go back to the pack but they keep on finding ways to succeed) One of the better run clubs in the league.

By only one run Craig but only takes one to win. They played well right through to the quarter finals and I'm very proud of each and every one. Even though David Nilsson, the team manager and I have had a few run ins over the years, he did well to get them as far as he did. (Did I just praise him? I must be sick)

My Atlanta Braves are up and down during their Spring Training games but when winning, win big. I'm looking forward to the season proper.

I'll give you a toot as I go flying past late tomorrow morning heading up to NSW Riverina mate.

Will be a good win for the Dees if they do, without May, Viney, Fritsch and Salem, can only get better.

Well, after last nights effort we can be sure that neither Carlton or Richmond will be on the top of the comp ladder after the end of first round.

I watched a bit of it on the tv and I am glad I didnt line up with the other 88,000 people to attend in person.

IMO apart from the lead changing at each quarter, it was not much of a spectacle.

Noted that the Dusty Fend is now being pinged, 1/2 a yard slower maybe?

 Hey Rick, give Carlton a go, they need to be up there this year, been too long. Haven't worn any of their stuff for a couple of years or so, damn moths might be in it by now

Hi Southern Cruiser,

I really feel that 2023 will be the biggest test for Carltons new coach.

While he was a brilliant player in the day, his coaching performance at Brisbane was dismal to say the least.
IMO his performance at Port Adelaide was patchy considering that their midfield list for much of his tenure had many very good players.
Lets hope his long term stint at the Power had him learning from the endless procession of other field coaches that Port seem to have happen on a yearly basis.

Hold in there SC you might have your colours out again before you know it.
On paper Carltons list for 2023 is pretty good.

 Rick I have said it before and will repeat it again here that a coach never plays the game, it's the players themselves. If they aren't performing then how can a coach tell them what to do

Demons vs Dogs looked a bit like 2021 GF

Phil your Cats let me down, hate Collingwood.

Storm.....who are they?

 Don't support Storm, but at least they're a team that plays real  football, as opposed to a bunch of "players" running around in circles playing  Aerial  Ping-pong. Cheers

Storm a bit down on form and players at the moment, they will improve, the new kids on the block, or in the water have started well though.

Fine Demons win, btw.

Even " turn the lights out Johnny " . could not get the Dees home, and probably did not deserve it anyway. Well done to Bris Lions.

Are the Blues the real deal, silence from Mt Barker ?

Demons could be 'Gawn' for the year if the big bloke has done an ACL.

Blues need to play 4 quarters, but learning week by week.

Geelong need Selwood back.

Pies need stopping as well.

Only round 2.........biggrin

Don't worry mate, I have very reliable intel that we are just giving all those other mobs a false sense of security.

Now, a real top sport is about to get under way at months end now that spring training is nearly over. Baseball. My Atlanta Braves will keep every on their toes.

Storm have quietly put a couple of wins on the board.

Well done Saints to win a " milestone game "

Somehow the ghost of John Elliot prevailed as well.

 Ah yes, it is always very handy to have an extra player on the paddock when the game result is in the balance. biggrin biggrin

 Never in doubt. Dees could have trouble with the Swans today, just saying!

Storm won. My Atlanta Braves won 2 out of 3 games and take the series. Win the 3rd game tomorrow morning and it's a clean sweep.

Can't ask much better.

Yes I can.

Bombers, get ya act together. It's not that hard ya know.

Hi guys, woe is me! I fear that what I said in an earlier post could be happening to the Cats. Have watched every game this year and you wouldn't think that they were the same side that won the flag last year. The next two or three matches will tell the story. Saw the Dees fix up the Swannies, they look light the real deal.

Bugga! We won the series but no clean sweep.

I hope the Braves don't follow last years trend of winning 2 and lose the 3rd. I might have to fly over and teach them a thing or '3'.


Good to see some smiling members here after the weekend AFL and NRL results though.

Ripper start by Dees, then slow down for a bit, but a strong last quarter and great debut by Van Rooyen.

Oh dear Magnarc, Suns do over Cats

 I fear the Cats are  too old too slow is a reality this year

 There's still hope for me to wear some of the stuff I still have left then. Looks like Vinnies miss out for a little longer

 Thanks Doug. It would be a pleasure to do that although there's not a lot of AFL followers around here. Most of them follow that other game, think it's called NRL
