    Yeah but there aren't any of them available.

    Campbell is absolute gash. McKernan over him any day. He's a sizeable upgrade on Campbell while still being rubbish.

    Gumby and White >>> McKernan

    General consensus on BigFooty is that Adelaide supporters want him gone and would be happy with a 3rd rounder.

    That is quite a relief.

    I don't think Adelaide supporters understand the use a player like that has on a list though.

    He's one of those blokes worth more to the club than to a buyer. He's a handy lock down defender, he really is. he's a bloke who can play as the second tall forward if we've got injuries and a very good second ruck with his leap and mobility - especially when crab jacobs is our first. He's of use to us purely as the second ruckman on our list; Graham isn't even the first ruck for Sturt in the SANFL so I'd say if sauce went down it'd be McKernan as first ruck.

    He plugs gaps. If people keep looking at him as a depth KPF then yeah, he's not worth it. But he does more than that, really. And that's what Crows fans forget.

    I don't like him, but he's a handy luxury to have on a list. I'd certainly prefer it to a third especially as we'd end up using both our thirds to bring in another shit cunt ruck as we'd be short on them. Like a renouf type. And we'd have to pay more for a renouf type than a mckernan type who's a better package than renouf because fucking homesickness trashes value.

    Would be so frustrating to be a recruitment officer at the crows. In the last few seasons we've lost Bock, Davis, Gunston, Tippett and now McKernan. Amazed we've really got any depth left in the key spots.

    Bulldogs don't need another Ayce Cordy on their list.

    thought Dickie Douglas was gonna take out the medal

    The medal looks shithouse, but congrats to Sloanedawg! :toot:

    Adelaide unable to use a version of the SA state jumper. Unlucky.

    Pot Power!!!!!

    Nah, glad tbh. Offensive idea, offensive that it was allowed, demeaning that people liked it.
  11. Dirk Diggler DM Diggler

    Looks better than their home/away/clash jumpers though.
  12. Mousey AJ Son

    DWTA. Weren't the Crows a joint venture by the SANFL teams and, therefore, a branch of SA footy?

    I could be getting confused with Footy Park though - that was owned by the SANFL.
  13. Dirk Diggler DM Diggler

    SANFL fucking over SA teams since 1990.
  14. Mousey AJ Son

    If it wasn't a joint SANFL club thingo than it's totally disrespectful imo ftr
  15. Skippos SM Morgan

    I just think the crows aren't south australia. They're part of it. it essentially implies, even if it doesn't intend to, that 'we're the true team of SA' - it'd be no different to a vic team wearing the big v or the roosters wearing the nsw jersey - bollocks.
  16. Dirk Diggler DM Diggler

    The difference is, no Victorian side would attempt to use the Big V.
  17. BoshtrichBurger BB Burger

    We're a true representation of the SANFL having been born from the 10 clubs in spite of Port's failed bid to enter the National Comp many moons ago.

    True representation of SA - hardly. True representation of SANFL - for sure.

    I was/still am slightly against the idea of us wearing a SoO jumper. So I'm sorta glad it was shafted.

    However the SANFL and AFL should've shut this idea down in it's infant stages instead of doing so a day after the announcement. It reeks of amateur hour and stupidity. It made us become the mockery of the league.
  18. BoshtrichBurger BB Burger

    There 'is' a difference though. All the Vic teams weren't born out of a state league to represent them on the national scale like the Crows were. No, the Vic teams were born to represent parts of their region, country town etc etc.

    Still I agree we shouldn't even of thought about wearing a SoO jumper in this first place.

    Awesome game was awesome (even though our opposition was diluted a tad)
