Ultimate is a fairly average spectator sport. It makes a good highlight reel but watching a full game from beginning to end can be an exercise in frustration and boredom. Anything that helps improve this is a good thing in my books.

An accelerated Nick Malceski type procedure?

And BUUF in 2004. I think we were the first uni team ever to finish dead last in both games and spirit. But let's not get too nostalgic.

Word on the street - Gong will be sending a team, but it will be complete newbies most of whom will be unspirited as all hell (my sis knows them all and chose not to play for this reason).

If I get the time I'll try and give them a couple of training sessions so that when we all play them at AUG it may be slightly less painful...

Gotta love playing teams like that. You think because they are new it will all be fun and games, but they turn out to be argumentative jerks, there are collisions, people get injured, and everyone leaves with a bad taste in their mouths. Quality.

Fuck it. One division.

... we are also attempting to reclaim the mantle we held a few years ago, those who were around will know what im talking about

So are you saying you have lots and lots of attractive females on your team?

You are going to end up with a scoring system that is so complicated it is impossible to use. Better off keeping it simple and functional, even if that results in skewed results. This would also mean removing very arbitrary concepts like a 'decent mark' entirely.

Most 'dreamteam' competitions suffer from some anomalies in their scoring systems, it's just neccesary to make them useable. Hence you often get players whose dreamteam points don't always align with their impact on the game, just the way it is.

So are UQ using those same horrendous uniforms as 07 or will you have a new kit designed to match up with silver accessories?

Nah man that strip was sick, the light blue number with the wings on the back? I was a big fan...original and interesting.
11  Regional / Australasia / Re: Proposed u23 World Championships on: August 09, 2009, 09:43:20 AM
Why stop there?

I think an under 25, 27 and 29 world champs would also be a great idea.

Everyone's a winner!

Email from the TD said:

Drinks offered at the Party are: Little Creatures Beers and Cider, Avalanche Frozen Cocktails, Vodka Cruisers, Ulti-Bomb (V energy and Jagermeister), assorted soft drinks and bottled water. Alcoholic drinks $5 Non-alcoholic $3

So i'm sure there will be something there that everyone is happy to drink.

Now that is value

Well, as a non-beer drinker, and wine slushies just aren't my style, it means the party sounds pretty crap to me.


Man up?

Power ballads you say?

Bon Jovi - Always
Bad English - When I See You Smile
Def Leppard - When Love And Hate Collide
Aerosmith - Don't Wanna Miss A Thing
Foreigner - I Wanna Know What Love Is
Starship - Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now
Poison - Every Rose Has Its Thorn
Van Halen - Why Can't This Be Love
Toto - Africa
Journey - Don't Stop Believing
Roxette - Fading Like A Flower
Whitesnake - Here I Go Again
Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse Of The Heart

Oh good god.

Here I was thinking I'm going to miss being at nationals this year. The prospect of being subjected to this at the party has made me feel a lot better about not going.

People who classify themselves lower than they are aren't just doing it because they are humble...they are also crafty and are deliberately doing it to try and stack their own team.
