I’m just going to cut to the chase. It was a tough week to be a black this week. Two wins from all games doesn’t make for pretty reading, especially when you see that the Scum had a bye and couldn’t make the rest of us feel better about our results.
Some teams copped a harsh reality check against finals bound opponents, leaving a lot of time for soul-searching that most players took too literally when getting handsy on the Go-Go's dancefloor that night.
As it’s almost the half way mark of the season, and to make the estranged readers of the Subby feel like they know the ins and outs of the club, we’ll be likening the Black’s teams to the teams of the AFL.
Div 1 Black Jack and the Showgirls AFL Side: Western Bulldogs
Their coach is a young buck, they play with a ferocity that is normally reserved for Greeks on Manly Beach, but lengthy injuries have defined their season. Spiritual leader and decorated lyricist Nick Gill (Tom Boyd) is set for a lengthy stint on the sidelines, meaning it’ll be up to some of the younger players to salvage the season.
Div 1R Super Gav and the Budgie Smugglers AFL Side: Fremantle Dockers
They’re the clubs best shot at a premiership, according to arrogant second year and heir to the blacks throne, Eddie “Kim Jong Un” Dadds. With depth in their midfield, and young blokes performing like Jackson Dearing (Stephen Hill) and Sam Penniment (Lachie Neale). Combined with superstar coach Gavin Cragg, these guys are the real deal.
Div 7 Sexy Pimp and his Big Blue Hat full of C-men
AFL Side: Collingwood Magpies
They take themselves very seriously, their fans and loyal supporters think they’re a genuine flag chance, but the reality is that they rock up to every game under the influence of inebriating substances. Tom Milton (Lachie Keefe) and Alex Ireland (Josh Thomas) are the worst offenders.
Div 7R Robert Reid and the Brady Bunch
AFL Side: Gold Coast Suns
They have a young list, they’re full of outside runners, and they can’t manage to string wins together. Their leader is also bald, and is batting way out of his league. What more evidence do you need?
Div C1 The Chardonnay Socialists
AFL Side: Sydney
With a wealth of elite players nearing the ends of their careers, the Chards are almost a dead certainty to make it to the last week of September, where they will get trounced by Goodwood Saints (Fremantle Dockers). They also seem to have a bigger salary cap than the rest of the teams, with their COLA obtained by Darien O’Reilly ensuring that Callum Rohde (Lance Franklin) can afford his Glenelg mansion and high maintenance girlfriend.
C2 The B@stards
AFL Side: West Coast Eagles
They smash the teams below them, and the teams above them destroy them. Their one paced midfield is bolstered by the fact that they have a Coleman Medal favourite up front in Cameron Gregg (Josh Kennedy). They have suffered a long 10 year premiership hangover, but the signs are there that they may yet come good in the future years.
Div 2 Women's The Girl Guides
AFL Side: GWS Giants
With a few teething problems in their early years, the girl guides have struck gold this year with their form. Adding a few quality players during the off season has turned them into a juggernaut which few can contend with.
C3 The Scum
AFL Side: Carlton
Confrontational Coach? Check.
Board friction? Check.
Does anybody like seeing them win? No.
This week is an enormous week for a number of sides, with big games against similarly placed opposition on the horizon. The A’s and B’s are both at home at BN#1, with the 7’s and 7R’s over at BN#2. There will be BBQs and beers flying around, so make like Relton Roberts and break those diets.
It’s also worth mentioning that Darien O’Reilly won’t be coaching the Chards for the rest of the year due to a health issue that even Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder could have seen coming. We wish him the best in his recovery!
May Bob be with you.

Members Day this Saturday
Once again in season 2015 we say a huge thankyou to those of you who have taken it upon yourselves to contribute to the Worlds Greatest Football Club by signing up as a member. We appreciate that this is not necessarily entirely voluntary due to a certain persistent Membership Officer, but as Jerk said when he retired from kicking drop punts in 2004, it’s not how it’s how many. To say thanks to our Adelaide members and to provide some much needed support to our battling A grade, this Saturday at Uni Oval 30th of May, 2:15 v Tea Tree Gully is Members Day where all members will be entitled to cheap drinks ($3 beer, wine, champers) throughout the afternoon to those who identify themselves with Blacks apparel or just let George/Milesy know behind the bar. Look forward to seeing a big crowd there.
This weeks look alikes have taken the celebrity theme, with Benny "what is a club event" Sanders a dead ringer of Gary Rohan from the swans. Or maybe its just the glorious red locks. Also Simon "Sharlelujah" Sharley has been likened to the notable surfing star Taj Burrow.
The Adelaide University F.C. Ladies Day is typically one of the most enjoyable, popular and important events of the winter calendar. This years event is shaping up to be no exception, with the gentlemen of The Blacks keen to show their hospitality, chivalry and appreciation for the magnificent ladies around us.
As the girls will get pampered on the sidelines, the boys will be in action on the field, taking on Rostrevor OC.

Win. Loss. Win. Loss. Win. Loss. The Smugglers have trended in a certain fashion so far this season, suggesting a 9-9 win-loss record in on track, leaving the possibility of a finals berth in the lap of the Gods. We need to arrest this trend quickly to ensure the aim of a finals berth becomes a reality, with the exception of course of this coming Saturday where the Twitterverse is trending towards a “win”. Are we complacent after a win? Is our appetite for the contest fiercer following a loss? Does the fixture coincidentally pit us against a better opponent every second week? We’d like to think there’s no such thing as a “better opponent”, but the reality of a 3-3 record suggests otherwise.
The lengthy medical room of the top 2 grades forced 8 changes from last week’s team, something that’s frustratingly becoming the recent norm, and not ideal for playing continuity of the B spotters, but with 21 fit committed blokes donning the Bob Neil grey with mission statement in hand, there are never any excuses. Unlike the previous 2 weeks where poor first half goal kicking put us behind the 8-ball early, our rare forays forward were rewarded with sausages… a freakish bounce off the boot of Shar-le-lu-jah and a 50 m penalty to the goal line from a lippy Falcon punctuating some good luck as we hit half time in a cracking high tempo contest up 6.1 to 4.6.
The 7 point lead hid some of the peripheral indicators where Payneham not only had 3 more scoring shots, but were easily clearing the ball out of the middle and more committed to bee lining the contested pill full chested. In the second half, a hungrier Payneham completely ran us off our feet piling on 7 goals to the solitary 1, to win comfortably by 5 goals in a half of footy where raising the twin calicos on a perfect sunny day was tougher than it had been all season. We were smashed in the middle, second to the ball looking tired, and the backline was unable to repel the consistent barrages coming in all day as cracks in the dam wall widened. A microcosm of an injury riddled season thus far came with ruckman Fladrick going down with an AC joint, and back up Harvey Two Face buggering his knee within a minute of each other in the crucial 3rd quarter… as we sweat out their damage once the dust settles midweek.
Positive signs came from The Dead Bodie Henderson and Harvey Two Face in their B Grade debuts, both of whom will be better off with a tough game under the belt. Penniment Lodge and Poodle Pitto came through unscathed from hamstring injuries. In a game with no clear standouts, our courageous human cannonball leader Kermit Green got the HYB chocolates.
A big thank you to Large Cox, Mickey Fizz Fitz and A Grade runner P.A. for coming up to get us 21 fit blokes out on the paddock. And congratulations to our heart & soul big Divots for a well deserved call up for his A grade debut, keep up the great work. The challenges keep coming, and we look forward to bouncing back against Tee Hee Gully on our beautiful home deck Saturday.

Close but not close enough for the CMen. The goal pre-game was not to get one back on the New Socks, but for the CMen to reward themselves with a four quarter effort. It was there for the first, second and fourth quarters, but missing like a backpcker in the Belanglo State Forest during the third quarter. It was a good lesson learned in preparation, leadership and standing your man.
Highlights on an average day included Tommy Two Bucks slotting an arsey checkside in front of the New Socks faithful and Brady Bunch newbie on higher duties Golden Arches McMichael, standing about 6 foot 3, roving and snapping a pearler to give the CMen a boost just before three quarter time.
Betty Spaghetti continued his good season and was strong at CHB, while the Nihillist found some touch deep in defence. SCUM defector Ronan Keating was hard at it all day, even if he did handball backwards over his head at the New Socks 50 to gift them another.

It was a peaceful sunny afternoon at picturesque Bob Neil #1 when A Broads View arrived. The confused look occupied their faces as their punctuality made them wonder whether they were at the right ground. In fact the confusion was only about to heighten. In the distance one could hear a Chardonnay Juggernaut.
Hordes of ex-Chardonnay 2006-08 premiership players resembling a rare and beautiful sperm whale migration came from afar to enjoy a reunion and watch the present day players. The liniment was flowing freely in the rooms before the Dirty Wrestler gave an inspiring pre-match semi-obituary address. The players were no doubt aware of the occasion and what the man has done for the club.
The Chards certainly did not play like their namesake leafy green vegetable in the opening term. All out uncompromising attack. The ball looked as if it was magnetically forced towards the Chards end. Valley of the Shadow of Drop Bear was all over it and helped himself to an early goal, while Penny Lane got amongst the early goals. Being 41 to 1 at quarter time was certainly a good way to start the day.
Impending disaster struck in the quarter time huddle when the Stallion was stung by a bee. Luckily for the anaphylactic it was on the leg and he just brushed it off – the undeterred young chap helped himself to a string of silky touches for the remainder of the game. Coles-Myer group was marking everything like it was 1999 and going goal for goal with Penny Lane.
At half time it was 80 to 2 and the back six Chards were dirty for two reasons 1) because they had conceded at all & 2) because there wasn’t a player with a last name similar to Cummings to compliment Farkin, W@nking, Butts Deep and Look At The Size Of His C@ck. Needless to say, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious was concerned at the position of his name on the board in between these hombres, as he looked like he was expecting to be told to lube up and do some skiing. The smell from the Rusty Barbie Never Sleeps lavishly arranged for the reunion and the impending Green ginger wine was tantalising for the leafy vegetables, but the focus had to be maintained. Good teams smash sides ruthlessly and this was what had to be done.
The third was more of the same – Candy from Wonka, line dancing from Achey Dakey Heart, penetration from SlipItInner and refugee employment in the form of tackle receives from Schiller’s List. Buckets Beilby gave us some redemption for his self-driven nickname, Farkin was doing all the Farkin Mopping up while Nickname Redundant was playing so well people were asking if he was high.
A Broads View were bemused. Try as they might they could not manage a goal until the last quarter. Quite simply they were made to feel like they never wanted to play football again. At one point the back six realised that they could play successful tricks on the opposition and lead for the oncoming ball, such was the poor entry into the forward lines from the Tigers.
So really in the last it all was about how many Penny Lane would kick, and in the end he upgraded his name to Note Lane, or Park Lane - finishing the day with 11 big ones and 4 screamers to top it off. The sense of theatre was high, none more so when Buckets Beilby generously handed off one to said CamNotHandball for one of his late goals.
When it was all said and done the Leaves of Chard triumphed by 138 points and did the onlookers proud. With On The Rohde Again masquerading as Rohdocop with his new metallic jaw on the side lines (whilst eating baked beans from a tin) along with Leonard Cohen Spinach to come back in the side shortly, things are looking positive for the Gentlemen of the 2015 Vintage.
The victory and premiership reunion was celebrated with copious amounts of Jest, Ale, Vodka and White Russians. Such was Walt Wittman’s desire for White Russians that when a certain establishment said that they could not serve the Poet a White Russian because they had no milk, he went to the convenience store conveniently located next door and bought some milk for said establishment to enjoy with fellow chaps.
How the game makes one thirst
The way it feels when the team comes first
To fight osteoporosis is not a crime
By one White Russian at a time.
Div C2 (The B*stards) 7.5.47 defeated by Salisbury NSE&W 10.2.62
Best Players: S. Garrett, D. Power, S. Henderson, T. Seagrim, A. Buckby, M. Hodby
The day began like most others, it was a bright and happy Saturday, the Bastards were excited for some footy in the sun but we didn’t see the clouds coming in from the North. Yes, Salisbury had rocked up and they came to play. And box. Although we had the potential to run harder and go for longer than this seemingly larger team (like 97% of teams we play) in the end they were hungry for the win and got it. As soon as the first bounce our backlines got a workout. Salisbury had a strong start kicking a few on us. This was starting to get more awkward than watching Tom Seagrim chat up Seb ‘Cletus’ Gray’s sister, despite our best attempts to stop him later that night at Bowlies. Simon ‘LAZA’ Garret had a great performance getting BOG. Standing as a strong wall rejecting the ball more times than he got rejected at Go Go’s while giving a lady chick the “s@x eyes”, which really says something about his game. But notwithstanding our attempts the opposition still stood in the lead at half time by 4 goals. I think. Running out of the change rooms we hit the field hard. Playing some good footy we managed to score 2 goals and keep the Salisbury team goalless through the quarter. Special mention goes to Speed Dealin’ Wheelin’; who blew the dust off of the old right foot and slotted a goal during the quarter. Would have made it better if the dust wasn’t from all the pills he grinds up in his spare time, but what can you do. As is tradition Alex Howes and Tom Seagrim worked like dogs all game giving a hard run, being assisted greatly by the likes of Dave, Hendo and Bucks. Great game by all. Side note: I don’t think Alex made best but yeah. I’m nice. Nam Tram had a good game • Crunch: 3.5 • Chirri: 4 • Pork: 5 • Coriander: 4 (It’s a dog roll joke lol – cos he’s Vietnamese). Ending the game we didn’t continue our 3rd quarter spirit and got out done by a team that was simply better. I’ve missed a lot of input in this game but tried to remember as much as I could. Memory is little bit on the dead side after what was said to be the most hyped boxing match since Mayweather VS Pacquiao that I participated in. Signing out. Cameron Gregg #135 #2 in league for goals as of before the game. #1 in your hearts.

Open Women’s Div 2 (Bob Neil’s Girl Guides) 17.24.126 defeated West Croydon Bleu 0.0.0
Goal Kickers: T. Lee 7, C. Tsoumbris 2, N. Burns 2, K. Holliday 2, M. Jones , J. Power , N. Newbery , S. Holliday

Round 4 of the SAWFL saw Bob Neils Girl Guides travel out to Guy Fawkes Memorial Oval to take on a new team to Womens football, in West Croydon Bleu, looking to keep their perfect start to the season intact.
Just travelling out to Guy Fawkes Memorial Oval was an experience. You know you’re in for an interesting day when you have to pass the Black Knight Sex Shop on the way to the ground.
The Croydon Bleus had been desperate to gain players in pre-season, even resorting to having The Redback & Hank Scorpio from Adelaides leading read in The Tiser come out and do a story on their club.
In a weird experience this year, with so many cookie sellers fighting for so few a spots each week, 4 Girl Guides had to pull out prior to the game. Again however, The Girl Guides had a new recruit to the side to fill this void, with Ross Faulkner (Sherin Lim-Hussain) suiting up for her debut in the Black with White V, and fellow first year player in Carpet Burn (Amelia Elburn) getting a late reprieve.
The Girl Guides were actually going into this contest with a very inexperienced side, with 6 girls in their debut season with a total of 10 games between them before this game, including The Deadbolt (Megan Lock) and Speed Racer (Mikayla Hein), while another 2 girls had played less than 10 games each.
Big Bird (Bridgette Needs) again got The Girl Guides off to the perfect start, dominating in the ruck, and allowing the midfielders to get the ball going forward. After a couple of early points, it was DANGER, HOT SURFACE!!! (Nicola Burns) who kicked the first goal of the day.
This was soon followed by The Lady Red (Cassie Tsoumbris) getting her first goal in football after earning a free kick, and then being given a 50m penalty thanks to ill discipline by the Croydon Bleu players. Sheridan Sheets (Eloise Sheridan) was also attacking the ball hard up forward, infuriating her opponent, and resulting in more ill discipline that saw DANGER, HOT SURFACE!!! able to kick her second for the quarter, and allow The Girl Guides to lead 3.5 to 0.0 at ¼ time.
The second term saw more ill discipline from The Croydon Bleus. With a great tackle being laid and a free kick being awarded, The Croydon Bleu player threw the ball away in anger, resulting in another 50m penalty and another goal from the goal line for The Lady Red, who was stepping up in the absence of some of the more experienced Girl Guide midfielders.
With it being evident already that Bob Neils Girl Guides were dominating this game, The Bush Telegraph (Stephen Baxter), fresh from his romantic dinner with his wife the previous game, threw City of Churches (Carrie Tucker) into the ruck to give Big Bird a breather, and also to see how the church bells would ring out in the middle. The answer to this was quite well, with City of Churches not being pushed around in only her second game of football.
However the same could not be said for Listerine (Lisetta Mauceri), who after going in solidly for a disputed ball, got spat out with no plaque being removed, and needed a spell on the pine.
Lovers Tiff (Tiff Lee) was adapting to the opposition a little better, managing to kick the next two goals for The Girl Guides, before Paging Dr Jones (Mariah Jones) made a lung busting run down the far wing, to get on the end of a Stevie J (Sheron Ford) pass, and kick truly to register her first goal of the game.
Although Bob Neils Girl Guides had wasted a number of opportunities in this term again, they were able to enter the long break with a comfortable lead, with scores 7.10 to 0.0 at ½ time.
Sensing their opponent was against the ropes and looking shaky, The Bush Telegraph looked to experiment with the side in the third quarter. Easter Holliday (Kym Holliday) was thrown forward with almost immediate effect, managing to kick two goals in quick succession, before Lovers Tiff slotted her third for the game.
The Blackberry (Natalie Newbery) was also thrown forward with immediate effect, kicking her second goal of the year, while 50 Shades of Grey (Erin Hennessy) put in multiple efforts to finally win the ball the way of The Girl Guides, and allow Lovers Tiff to kick her second of the quarter, and fourth goal of the game. With time running out, The Powermedic (Julie Power) sounded her siren and kicked her first goal of the day.
Although it appeared the forwards were doing all the work on this day, the defence was making sure it was accountable whenever The Croydon Bleus got the ball moving forward. Dale Thomas (Courtney Thomas) was the leader in this regards, being an impenetrable wall along the half back line, and along with Thommo (Thi Thy Nguyen), allowed The Girl Guides to lead 13.13 to 0.0 at the final break.
The final term was again full of inaccurate kicking by Bob Neils Girl Guides, amassing 11 points for the term, and meaning they would miss setting their highest score ever for the second time this season. However it was not down to the efforts of Christmas Holliday (Suzanne Holliday), who managed to kick her first ever goal to start the quarter, after being tight in defence earlier in the day. The Celtic Warrior Princess (Brigid Morgan) also went forward in the last term, and was unlucky not to have a ball shepherded through on the line after taking a strong mark.
But as can happen in games when it is one-sided, injuries can happen, and it was the turn of Paddy (Olivia McCann) to suffer a knock to the ribs after a fierce collision in the middle of the ground after a ruck contest. Not to be deterred however, Paddy rubbed her four leafed clover and pushed on through the pain to the final siren.

Sam Penniment is adamant on playing this week after shattering his nose last saturday. Currently sporting two prominent black eyes as a result, this weeks flick of the week is Kung Fu Panda. Ever the optimist, Sammy stated during the week that the black eyes had resulted in some intrigue from the ladies at uni - saying that the bad guy look must suit him.
