    . this conversation has become quite bizarre

    . almost universally people agree our season is too short ... from fans to players, coaching staff and even administrators - yet here we are talking about playing mid-week games so that our season doesn't get any longer ???

    Morale seems to have taken a bit of a hit lads, this forum went from buzzing with anticipation to struggling to get a few posts a day.

    Chin up, COYY.

    As long as we lobby to be the away team for those midweek games I don't think it's too much of an issue

    We are all a little deflated after losing to a NPL side.

    They've never won a game in the Cup.

    Scum probably should have won that game.

    Bris got thrashed so hopefully we can do them this season.

    I missed most of the game due to family commitments, so please don't tell me that... Unless... wait... If they should have won, and we beat them in pre-season, then by the transitive properties of my ass, we should be up for beating both them and Adelaide this season... Add Brisbane into that equation and we're on our way! ;)

    . the issue would be that you're implying other teams would voluntarily accept a mid-week home game and that we would receive some sort of preference to other teams - neither of which i would consider likely

    Most if not all of these midweek games would ideally happen during the summer holiday window similar to Big Bash cricket, I reckon particularly clubs in the cities would benefit from them (provided a friendly 7pmish kickoff)

    Cricket (especially the hit and giggle variety) is suited to being played night after night in hot weather. Having repeated short turnarounds when the weather's over 30 degrees during the day and over 20 degrees at night is easy if your game largely involves standing around or sitting down.

    Football is a different game.

    Your arse (i presume you mean your bum and not your Donkey) has transitive properties?

    Can you help me and any other dim people with an explaination of the special properties of your arse?

    Argh! Thanks, I always get that one the wrong way around!

    Well... For one my wife thinks it's damn fine! ;) But that may say more about her than about my arse - other than that I'm thinking that there's about as much value pulled and insight derived from viewing those games as an indicator of performance this season, as there was in pulling that sentence out of aforementioned orifice ;)
