    I don't see your point - Your club must be responsible for that - Check the rules
    Your only water runner at the Prems game yesterday was wearing dress pants and shoes - Not a good look for a 1st grade game

    As I said before - The clubs are the one's who should lift the standard

    Better they do it on the weekend to prepare for finals, where it's pretty clear what they need to wear and only come on after goals.

    True. I guess just upset they cared more about that stuff than getting decisions correct. That said, they prob get div 3 finals so doesnt matter as much.

    Is that not lifting the standard? Probably dont see dress pants and "shoes" often out that way.

    Don't know how you keep doing it, but you manage to make yourself sound like a bigger tosser by the day. Commenting on the perceived poor quality of the lower grades when you'd be lucky to be emergency if you weren't Div 4 coach. And now socioeconomic comments.

    You do occasionally come out with some funny gear though, I'll give you that.
    Maybe you have a mental illness. Like a cool, reasonably functionable one

    I see another Manly junior has racked up a huge game. Last week it was 18 year old jarrod Osborne with 41 disposals. This week it was 17 year old Sam wicks with 41 disposals, 8 clearances, 8 tackles, 7 marks and 2 goals, playing for manly prems against western suburbs.

    YOU DON"T GET IT DO YOU
    The thing is SYDNEY Footy needs to lift the standard and that starts with the clubs themselves. PREMS CLUBS - As they are the benchmark for Sydney AFL ON and OFF the field.
    So if it means a water runner needs to dress as to the rules so he should. What the AFL has to start doing is big fines. So you get it right.
    I am not involved with any club but go to games on weekends to watch footy. My old club Newtown has long gone.
    Your club St George needs to look in the mirror because they need a big catch-up in how to present themselves.

    Far be it for me to stick up for Saints but it is hard enough to get players to wear the right shorts let alone have all water runners attired correctly. I don't know what it was like back in the day but running a football club in 2017 is akin to herding cats.
