Stay up to date with your Dallas Magpies!

New York Magpies – 6 June 2015

So on the plane we got, a bunch of hungry, insatiable elite Australian Rules footballers with a big fat coach from Dallas and headed to the North East to take on the reigning USAFL champions, New York Magpies!! Most arrived Friday night and all were well in bed before our strict 6 AM curfew!

Cudo’s to Jacko for grabbing the 11 seater bus for 17 people, a management feat even I cannot master! The thought of sitting on Bens lap encouraged the coach and his team to get a cab to augment the travel arrangements. The drive to Yonkers was uneventful, even enjoyable.  Arrived at Tibbetts Brook park around 11 and got down to business.  The ground was in good nick, the open sewer even didn’t come into play!

As we only had 15 players, the New York Magpies  “lent” us 4 players; Youngie, Dominic, Selby(3 goals) and Giddy!! All could play too!! Many thanks to those boys, they really helped make it an outstanding game.

First quarter opened in flurry with the Dallas boys scoring the first major early on.  The ruck work of John Dobbs was outstanding, coupled with the on ball efforts of Jacko and Jake we gained the early ascendency.

The NYC Magpies pummeled their forward line early in the first quarter, but the work effort of Ben and Mikey in the back line and the pace of Diggs got us pushing forward on every rebound.  The mid field led by a best on ground performance Will was unstoppable, great marking by Grant, Lashay and Selby really kept the pressure on.  They also had no answer for Jake who’s balance and poise shone out like a laser beam at La Guardia airport.

The game was a tight contest all the way through the 2nd and 3rd terms, had a few casualties, Derek nearly lost his girlfriends best friend, Jacko head butted a boot and LaShay got introduced to REAL football by a great tackle that nearly tested his manhood!!

Leading into the last quarter, we got surprised by the drive NYC got out of the center, getting the first 3 goals in quick succession that put them into the lead, but or boys rallied, Alex Szabo took mark after mark, keeping us in the game, his strength and height scared the shit out of a few NYC magpies!!! We had our chances but it confirmed to the team and the NYC Magpies, we have the players to be a competitive outfit for this year and will have a real shot at the Div 1 title.

After the final siren(Robins whistle) the NYC Magpies led by 4 points, but an absolute fantastic effort, to nearly beat the “Champs” on their home turf is a credit to all the players who made the trip to NYC. The intensity was there from the start and understandably dropped off toward the end due to the pace on which the game was played!

Lashay was left behind in the boys haste to get showered after the game!! It sorta went like this: Brenn: You got LaShay
Me: No, Why?
Brenn: $@%!, we left him behind. no wonder the bus is quiet!
Me: !@#$ yes you left him behind!
Lachie: Hey Aido they left me behind!!
Me: Yep!

Due to overcrowding on the bus! Troy(who played 160 games in Oz before the age of 12!!) gave me, wifey(Our runner) and Robin(OurScorer) a lift to Manhattan and was a great example of the “USAFL” family we have. Many thanks to New York and bring on the nationals!

In my opinion, it was one of the best games of football I have seen here in the USA, even our opponents thought it was a great contest!! Good effort fellas, and lets get after 2015 and become the best of the best!!!!!

  1. Nigeria is divided roughly in half between Christians, who live mainly in the southern part of the country, and Muslims in the
    northern part. A minority of the population practise religions indigenous to
    Nigeria, such as those native to Yoruba and Igbo peoples.

  2. A thoughtful exposition on an important, sometimes controversial subject. Although I agree with most of the blog and feel the points are strongly made, there a few areas here that I think belong to a discussion on other subjects. A lot of people have addressed this kind of observations, but yours seems to be at least more thought out.

  3. The modern state originated from British colonial rule starting in the
    19th century, and the merging of the Southern Nigeria Protectorate and Northern Nigeria Protectorate in 1914.
    The British set up administrative and legal structures
    whilst practising indirect rule through conventional chiefdoms.

  4. Nigeria attained independence from the United Kingdom as a Commonwealth Realm on 1
    October 1960. Nigeria’s government was a coalition of conservative parties: the
    Nigerian People’s Congress (NPC), a party dominated by Northerners and those of the Islamic
    religion, and the Igbo and Christian-dominated National Council of Nigeria and the Cameroons (NCNC) directed by Nnamdi Azikiwe.
    Azikiwe became Nigeria’s maiden Governor-General in 1960.

    The opposition consisted of the comparatively liberal Action Group (AG),
    which was mostly controlled by the Yoruba and directed by Obafemi Awolowo.

  5. The North East of the state has seen sectarian violence an Islamist movement that seeks to abolish the
    lay process of government and establish Sharia law, by Boko
    Haram. Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan in May 2014 asserted that Boko Haram attacks
    have left at least 12,000 people dead and 8,000 people crippled.
    At the same time, neighbouring nations, Benin, Chad, Cameroon and Niger
    joined Nigeria in an united effort to fight Boko Haram in the wake of a world
    media highlighted kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls and the spread of
    Boko Haram strikes to these countries.

  6. Nigeria is frequently referred to as the “Giant of Africa”, owing to its large population and market.

    With approximately 182 million inhabitants,
    Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa and the seventh most populous state on the
    planet.

  7. Since 2002, the North East of the country has seen sectarian violence
    by Boko Haram, an Islamist movement that seeks to abolish the lay system of government and establish Sharia law.
    Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan in May 2014 asserted that Boko Haram strikes have left at
    least 12,000 people dead and 8,000 individuals crippled.
    At exactly the same time, neighbouring nations, Benin, Chad, Cameroon and Niger joined Nigeria in a combined effort to fight Boko Haram
    in the consequences of a world media emphasized the spread of Boko Haram attacks and kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls
    to these states.

  8. Nigeria, an African country on the Gulf of Guinea, is known for wildlife
    reserves and its natural landmarks. Safari destinations for example
    Yankari National Park showcase waterfalls, dense savanna, rainforest and infrequent primate habitats and Cross
    River National Park. One of its most recognizable sites is Zuma Rock,
    a 725m- tall monolith outside the capital of Abuja that’s pictured on the national currency.

  9. On Oct. 1, 1960, Nigeria attained independence, becoming a member of
    the Commonwealth of Nations and joining the United
    Nations. Organized as a loose federation of self governing states, the
    independent nation confronted the overwhelming job of unifying a country with 250 ethnic
    and linguistic groups.

  10. During the oil boom of the 1970s, Nigeria joined the enormous revenue and OPEC created made the market richer.
    Despite enormous earnings from oil production and sale, the military government did little help medium and small businesses, to improve the standard of
    living of the population, or purchase infrastructure. The federal government became the centre of political battle and the threshold of power in the nation as oil earnings fuelled the rise of federal subventions to states.

    As oil production and sales climbed, the Nigerian government became increasingly determined
    by petroleum revenues and the international commodity markets for economical and budgetary concerns.
    It didn’t develop other sources of the economy for economic stability.
    That spelled doom to federalism in Nigeria.

    It failed to develop other sources of the economy for economic stability.

    That spelled doom to federalism in Nigeria.

  12. As of 2015, Nigeria is the world’s 20th largest market,
    worth $1 trillion and more than $500 billion in terms of
    nominal GDP and purchasing power parity.

  13. Nigeria is a member of the MINT group of countries, which are broadly viewed as the globe’s next “BRIC-like” economies.
    It is also listed among the “Next Eleven” economies
    set to become among the largest on earth. Nigeria is a founding member of the
    Commonwealth of the United Nations, the African Union, OPEC, and Nations amongst other international organisations.

  14. Nigeria, one-third bigger than Texas and the most populous nation in Africa,
    is situated on the Gulf of Guinea. Its neighbors are Benin, Niger, Cameroon, and Chad.

    The lower course of the Niger River flows south
    through the western area of the nation into the Gulf of
    Guinea. Swamps and mangrove forests border the southern shore;
    inland are hardwood woods.

  15. Modern-day Nigeria has been the site of numerous
    kingdoms and tribal states over the millennia. The modern state originated from British colonial rule starting in the 19th
    century, and the merging of the Southern Nigeria Protectorate and Northern Nigeria Protectorate in 1914.
    The British set up legal and administrative structures
    whilst practising indirect rule through conventional chiefdoms.

  16. As of 2015, Nigeria is the world’s 20th largest economy, purchasing power parity and worth more than $500 billion and $1
    trillion in terms of nominal GDP.

  17. Nigeria plunged into a civil war from 1967 to 1970, and became a independent federation in 1960.
    It’s since switched between democratically-elected
    civilian authorities and military dictatorships, until it reached a secure democracy with its 2011 presidential elections being viewed to be conducted reasonably fairly and freely,
    in 1999.

  18. During the oil boom of the 1970s, Nigeria joined the enormous earnings and OPEC generated made the market
    more loaded. Despite huge earnings from sale and oil production,
    the military government did little purchase infrastructure, help small and medium businesses, or to improve the standard of living of the population. The federal government became the
    centre of political struggle and the threshold of power in the
    country as oil earnings fuelled the rise of federal subventions to states.

    Nigeria is a founding member of the Commonwealth of the African Union, Nations, OPEC,
    and the United Nations amongst other international organisations.

  20. Nigeria is regarded as an emergent marketplace by the World Bank;It continues to be identified as a regional power on the African continent, a central power in international affairs, and
    has already been identified as an emerging global power.

  21. An African country on the Gulf of Guinea, Nigeria,
    is known for wildlife reserves and its natural landmarks.
    Safari destinations for example Cross River National Park and Yankari National Park

    and create Sharia law, by Boko Haram. Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan in May 2014 asserted that Boko Haram attacks have left at least 12,000 people dead and
    8,000 individuals crippled. At the exact same time, neighbouring states, Chad, Benin, Cameroon and

  23. During the oil boom of the 1970s, Nigeria joined the enormous revenue and OPEC generated made the market more affluent.

    Despite huge revenues from oil production and sale, the military administration did little help medium and small businesses, to enhance the standard of living
    of the population, or put money into infrastructure. The government
    became the center of political struggle and the threshold of power in the state as oil earnings fuelled the
    rise of national subventions to states. As oil production and revenue rose, the Nigerian authorities became increasingly determined by oil revenues and the international commodity markets for economic and budgetary concerns.

    It didn’t develop other sources of the market for economic stability.

  24. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  25. Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive read anything this way prior to. So nice to find somebody with a few original applying for grants this subject. realy we appreciate you beginning this up. this web site is one area that is required over the internet, somebody if we do originality. useful purpose of bringing something new to the net!

  26. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  27. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  28. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  29. Wow, marvelous weblog structure! How lengthy have you been running a blog for? you made running a blog look easy. The full look of your site is excellent, let alone the content material!

  31. Your method of describing the whole thing in this paragraph is really nice, all be able to effortlessly be aware of it, Thanks a lot.

  32. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  33. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  35. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  36. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  38. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  39. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  41. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  42. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  47. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    They are very convincing and will certainly work.

    Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for starters.
    May you please prolong them a bit from next time?

    Thanks for the post.

Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  74. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  76. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  77. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  78. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  80. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  81. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  82. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  83. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

But this issues demands a more even handed approach. it is readable when it is more calm and thoughtful, and, of course, more persuasive.

Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  156. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  157. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  159. Iím impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog thatís both educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  160. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  163. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  164. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users.

  166. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  170. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  171. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  218. I was just looking for this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Generally the top websites are full of garbage.

  295. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  297. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  298. Excellent goods from you, man. I have bear in mind your stuff previous to and you are just too wonderful.
