Fuck off. She's throws like a woman who is awesome, which she is. You don't need to compare her to a man to justify that she's good. And if you respond with some patronising comment I will personally throttle you.

yay "Meegs"


Wow.

Just... wow.

Yay "tiger"

yeah, thats why i don't handle...im there specifically for running and filling the black man quota Tongue

And that's an important role too... "To a white person, having a diverse Ultimate team is almost as good as winning the championship.  Almost." (Direct quote from http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com/2008/09/23/110-frisbee-sports/)

So back to actually talking about world games...Pete Gardiner re-injured his recently reconstructed knee at the BC invitational on the weekend. I'm not sure how serious it is and hopefully he'll be fine by the time world games comes around. If not who do you think his replacement will be?

The reserves are Gav Moore, Oash and Tats. Depends what role they had slated for Pete (probably handler), but at a guess I'd say Owen.

with such a short roster I'm not sure if they would pick Owen just because he's 'a handler.' At that level everyone can catch and throw. I think they're more likely to go with Tats or Gav, whoever they think is the least injury prone (which doesn't look good for tats...)

"Handler" probably isn't the right word. "Playmaker" perhaps? Tats' game is similar to the Dowles or Neild or even Jonno. I haven't seen Gav play much since WUCC, so I couldn't confidently compare him to anyone on the list. I just figured Owen's style is closer to Pete's than the other two.

Yeah Owen is a playmaker, and it looks as though the team could do with one if they lose Pete.  I'm not sure if it would be a bad thing to stack the team with players who play big though.

I thought that at a World Games level, Owen's strength would fall more into the 'agile' and 'defender' boxes rather than just the 'handler' box.

What sort of role does PG play? I've really only seen him after he did his ACL: nice guy, walks like an AT-ST, no idea what he does onfield.

I think everyone is overlooking the most important issue surrounding all this.  Who else is going to be there in the crowd to support the crocs?

The World Games will be a completely fantastic event, and more Australian crowd support could never go amiss.

Tigsie... you trained an entire nationals season with him last year... You know what he does...
He runs lots/fast, gets free seemingly at will, catches the disc effortlessly and then throws a long backhand to score... that about sums up my observations

But I'll let you off the hook because I like you and you put in a star wars reference...

As a another ACL-lacking type, I take offence good sir! But again, the Star Wars quote was well praid. Respect.

I heard PG hurt himself again at Canberra?
