It's now 48hrs after most of the games, and still no sign of any scores for non-Premier games on the FFT website, nor any avenue to view them (other than the leagues you report on of course Walter).

Also no response by them despite a large number of people interested, as to why this is the case and when/if it is going to fixed at all this season.

Pathetic!


We're almost up to 72 hours, and we must still be waiting for the snail mail results to come through to FFT for all other results. Welcome to 1992 everybody!


4 days (or almost 100 hours) since the majority of the games, and still no results for 99% of teams outside of Men's SPL & NPL on FFT's site.

Yet they somehow think posting scores from the Champions league matches overnight on their Facebook is more relevant than providing scores of their own leagues...!

I guess there'll be no results for leagues in The Mercury this year then?!

So do we wait on the following from South:

The plucked Eagle
The Dumb Student
The Decapitated Warrior
The tamed Lion
The fallen Phoenix (couldn't thing of anything other than a 'bleached' Red)
The nutted Knight

Or conversely other teams could do 'the modest South'

YAWN

I predict that both Chippa and McKenna will be at Olympia by the end of next week

If Zebras need extra motivation after finishing second the last few years and constantly under-performin g - then there is no hope for them. That goal celebration won't make a difference!

Quoting Mike McKenna:
I also guarantee that Ken won't care how they celebrate(within reason) while they are winning like that.


not sure how you can guarantee anything on behalf of Ken but I'm just as confident that he wouldnt like to give opposition teams any more incentive than necessary and clearly 'riding zebras' as unintended as it may have been by the players will be extra motivation for Zebras next time out I'm sure.

sorry Mike but I think it's now been established that the 'riding zebras celebrations' were clearly aimed at the opposition.

If I were Kelly, I'd be reminding his players of that next time out.

Personally, I didn't like it - even as a south supporter.


You are not a South Hobart supporter, so don't pretend you are.

Sorry riding a Zebra... Didn't realise that's what it was. Even so suck it up.

Next time Zebras play them and if they win have a picture in front of the scoreboard.


you're embarassing yourself now Mike.

I'll bet you would wont see it again from South as Ken Morton knows it shows a lack of respect to opposition.

Really? The only thing embarrassing is that you claim to be a South Hobart supporter. Come out from behind your anonymous tag. I'm sure the boys would love to know who you really are.

I also guarantee that Ken won't care how they celebrate(withi n reason) while they are winning like that.

Celebrations are awesome. In fact, not enough goals are celebrated with much excitement these days.

If you get offended by a little fun out on the park then you have no sense of humour. If you have no sense of humour I feel sorry for you.

Ride on boys.
