yes indeed.

but in saying that, you still have to be a good player to be a captain.

Hayes and Riewoldt, Saints 2 best players
Brown and Black (i think), probably 2 best
Judd, Carltons best player
etc etc


All captains from all clubs youd have to say would just about be in there teams top 5 players.

I do understand what you mean, although sometimes it is not like that. When Burns got given it, he was probably not in our top 5, just outside it, as with Maxwell.

a captain at under-14?
what exactly would you do being a captain??
Things I said below. At training, they never muck around, they always make sure the others know what they are doing. They do what they are meant to do. Captain.

Generally in Under-14s or what ever you play in. the best player is usually captain. And its not like Captaincy matters at that age level

No way the best player is always captain. I played in the under 14 and a half's this year and yeah, our captain probably was our teams best player. But he also has enormous leadership skills, went to every training session rain, hail, or shine, a great lad on and off the field, and would always lend a helping hand to anyone. I've played alot of seasons where the captain was given to guys who were no where near the best players, but it wasn't necessarily the wrong decision, my opinion is just that any coach that puts skill ahead of everything else when it comes to choosing a captain is a dead-set rookie, and all those other qualities should always come first.

In my footy team our captain was the best player. That being said I dont agree that the captain is always the best player. Yes they would have to have there spot cemented in the team but no way do they need to have exceptional skills.

Tom Harley is the perfect example. He was no way the best player for Geelong (skill wise) but he has the best leadership skills which is why he was captian (and a great one to).

I was talking about in the younger age groups not afl, really the captaincy doesnt mean squat in under 14s and thereabouts. Its just junior footy, best player usually gets handed the captaincy in those age groups

Got 2 new rants today!

Firstly, I was at a service all morning for a school graduation thingamybob. They called all the Yr 12s such as myself up on the stage to receive a few certificates and a Bible (pity I'm not religious Rolling Eyes) and the like. We all had allocated seating, and the stupid chick next to me decided to tell anyone who was listening (plus a few who weren't) what she thought of the looks of every single person who went on the stage, and she was incredibly incredibly rude. Jeering at a friend of mine due to her excema, calling another one of my friends "grotesque", it was all I could do to stop myself from smashing her face in with my newly-aquired Bible. She wasn't even that good looking herself, stupid fat (like, Dawn-French-would-tell-her-to-go-on-a-diet type of fat) chick with completely orange skin supposedly meant to make me think she spends a lot of time at the beach, but gave more of an impression that she'd escaped from an episode of The Simpsons. I hate people like that, bloody fugly, yet feel the need to critique everybody else for their looks. Someone should show them a mirror! Sheesh.

Anyway, second, completely irrelevant rant. I HATE MILLIPEDES! I spent an hour this morning locating and sweeping up millipedes on the floor and disposing of them outside, came back inside and more started crawling around. Goddamit they're annoying.

Anyway, rant over Smile

Yep, definitely something in her hair... I wouldn't have thought the bleached hair would go well with the orange skin, but you know Rolling Eyes

Yeah, riveting stuff. I've already got a Bible from when the same school made me buy one in Grade 3, and somehow I think this "new revised standard version" isn't going to have an alternative ending.... Confused

I'm still laughing a little, and thinking about what would have happened if my school tried to award us with a bible when we finished year 12.

Anyway congrats on finishing year 12.

Thanks Smile

And yeah, there was more than a little muttering when they announced we'd all get a Bible haha. But they gave us alcohol glasses as well (beer glasses for guys, wine glasses for girls) to make up for it, so we're all meant to be alcoholic Christians I guess Razz
