Re: Referees

We lost 4-2 yesterday
Referee gave 2 penalties against us in the second half
Both were there in my opinion and he did a good job
No excuses and fair play to him

Re: Referees

As expected the complaining about referees is in full swing on here and also the SAASL Facebook group, only 13 more weeks of it! Seriously, I was making a tongue in cheek comment about what he said - and did make mention that he didn't alter the outcome. Agree with someone else's comment he did 2 g...

Re: Referees

The referee gave us a briefing before the game and told us he would make a number of mistakes - at least he got that right Basically setting himself up for a dodgy game. What he should say is "I may not see everything (clearly)" - then fair enough. Didn't change the outcome so not having a whinge j...

Re: Australia & New Zealand to host FIFA Women's World Cup 2023

I suspect the Cartel got into UEFA again. UEFA is corrupt and how could they put anything credence towards Columbia's poor bid. Something smells from that organisation. UEFA has staunchly defended its decision to snub the trans-Tasman 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup bid and block vote for Colombia desp...

Re: Season 2020

I think the proposed cup/conference system is a sensible way to play some football in a hugely disrupted year. It strikes the right balance between being practical, achievable with the constraints and engaginf for players. It also reduces risk of spreading virus if there is a second wave in mid win...

Re: Season 2020

Can’t agree more must be a competitive season even if we can’t fit 18 games in - for teams like Port Pirie rather than midweek they could have 2 - 6 point games drawn randomly - 1 home, 1 away so for example we could play them in Pirie for 6 points and they could play Raptors away for 6 points if yo...

Either a season is finished or it isn't? Until something is mathmatically certain then you can't award a winner. 2019/20 SPL Winner - seltic* If clubs and associations agree otherwise you can. If they decide to finish the season now, it's legal and that's it. May not seem right and will give people...

Re: Season 2020

Subject to not having a second wave, whatever happens this season will certainly be treated as a one-off. To maintain reasonable fairness, I suggest initial prelim phase over 9 rounds i.e. play each other once. In Premier leagues, top four then play off to decide the year's champion. Bottom two and...

It's important to see what clubs are thinking. Having come across from the UK, I've always admired how 'professional' the Amateur League was, but sometimes this can become elitist.

The association need to start being creative, to allow an 18 game season to be completed. Yep no cup - agree! However, let's take Sunday Div 1 for example.

Re: Season 2020

Why settle for 9 or 18 matches as the only binary options? If an 18 game season is not possible, then why not take a leaf out of Scotlands book, with a split after each team has played each other once. Top 5 play each other again (reverse not being able to drop below fifth), bottom 5 play each othe...
