Tin Tin gets lost in the entire Usyd line. Whilst he is an "elite" player, He can destroy your chances just as easily as improve them.

Then you have the really consistent performers like mort and izzy (and most of Usyd infact) that aren't "elite" players per se, but because they always play at that same level kinda serve to swallow Tin Tin and his performance up. Regardless of whether it is good or bad.
Have you ever seen Sydney Uni play? I wouldn't say Pete is a dominant player on that side at all.

SUUFA is full of elite players - Izzy, Tara, Max, Hammer, Calan...and that's without putting any real thought into it.

I'm never really sure what you're on about, Dan. How was ERYUC anyways?

I think Brett's hit a key point... The majority of people who'd have nothing better to do for 90 min at 1pm on a Friday will be there in the flesh, I would think...

Personally, rather than audio (though that was a cool first step), I really think we should start getting video recordings of national finals. Nationals, Mixed Nationals, AUG. All of these finals should be recorded.
In the past, we've sometimes had unofficial videographers (take a bow, Dom Ventura), but I'd really like to see official videos starting to become a thing. That would be cool. Even if it's just a single camera, fixed position, no editing to start with... I think this is a great step to take, and a relatively simple one to arrange, I would think?

And who's J-Bell?

Still interested in seeing some of the uni teams...  Only ANU has signed up players though, Mac has signed up an empty team as some form of passive-aggressive protest too

Simmo,

I think you just agreed with Dan. He was saying that Pete doesn't stand out as a dominant player in our side and that because of other players like Mort and Izzy, he just becomes another player.

Haha, the evolution of that nickname better stay off the internet....or maybe not.

I am tempted to register for Macquarie now. I hardly think its a form of protest though, just tiger bored...or am i wrong.

At what point is someone elite at uni level. If its playing Open/Womens nationals then that makes 14 out of 16 of last years team "elite". Or is it more the NUFL (does that still exist) level players who get the moniker of being totally awesome.

I've registered the Newcastle A team up on the AFDA website for anyone who's curious.

ERYUC was pretty good. Rhys didn't win MVP but he was certainly the most valuable Clenton. Fields were basically Coff's Harbour quality. Some very promising kids for next year's campaign coming out of the woodwork.

 Grin  Cheesy Grin

Fields were atrocious... But the opperating committee didn't mind one bit that we churned the shit out of their fields. Jmc's ass did come up in a conversation i had with a queensland junior (Jack the Ninja) about throwing forehands... Weird convo that one, weird.

For those that care about the results:

Final: Fresh Fries (QLD) def Miner (Newcastle, NSW) 10 - 7
3rd/4th: Acronym (Sydney, NSW) def Psuedonym (Sydney, NSW) 8 - 4
Discotheque (ACT) came 5th.

Miner won Spirit.

Xavier Black (NSW) won Male MVP
Catherine Noble (NSW i think) won Female MVP


Back to the pete argument. I'm not sure what games you guys have been watching, but because of the depth of suufa, Pete Liddicoat gets lost. If pete only turned it 33 times at AUGs, i'd be surprised. Either there is some creative scoring going on there OR you missed 3 or 4 games  Grin

Nothing against the bloke, great guy, insanely balanced when pivoting and can throw it with the best.... But really, the Suufa team outshines individuals. Suufa's strength comes from the fact they don't rely on any one player to win them the game. Pete tends to make bad throwing decisions, which is why he is known as captain throwaway to the rest of us. Personally, I think pete is on level pegging with Jmc or Oshep when it comes to pure throwing ability but then kinda fades into the background as Jmc and those better handlers make great decisions on their throws, pete just seems to pick the wrong one at the wrong time.

That's a pretty damn solid team from Newcastle!  Without UQ and Mac from last year, and from what I hear a somewhat depleted Suufa EUGs team, most likely the team to beat.

Clearly Tiger was protesting against his boredom

Definitely a good idea... I'd be way more inclined to watch a vid, or even highlights than listen too a final

I was thinking more "bitter at being unable to go"

Someone de-registered me from the team though =( talk about feeling unwanted...

In slightly EUGs-related news, UTS, UNSW and Suufa had a scrimmage yesterday in Centennial Park.  I don't think either of the teams had full EUGs rosters but the results:

UTS (w/ Gaby) > UNSW by a few
Suufa (w/Gaby) > UTS by 1 point in extra time
Suufa (w/Gaby) > UNSW by quite a few

Real winner of the day obviously?  Gaby Melo Tongue

Shaping up to be a close EUGs I think, it looks like Newcastle is going to possibly be the team to beat though.
