#24 for Woodville Under 18s Div 2

Can someone tell me who is #24 for Woodville Under 18s Div 2? This guy looks like he's got some potential! He looks around about 6'4", strong, athletic (he dunked very easily two handed in warmups of the game I saw at The Dome the other week), quick for his size, great defender, good passer, creative on offense. He looks very unpolished though, so with some coaching I think this guy could be a good player.

this is damo, he looks unpolised because he has only played for a few years, but his current coach has been work with him for the last 2 seasons and he is improving

If this guy is big, athletic and is such a good defensive player, couldn't Woodville's 18s Div 1 side use him? Are the big guys in Div 1 better than him or is there another reason?

they guys in div 1 are better all round players, and have been playing onger so they have a better understanding of the game. and y would u want to change that team, they have lost 1 game this season.

Inertiatic this seems a little suspicious.. Why pick 24 a player from one of the weakest teams in the league? Theres other big guys in the league too. Who are you

Not that it matters too much, but Woodville u18 div 1 have lost twice so far. Sturt beat them by around 20, and Southern beat them by the same amount. They also still have to play West and Forestville, both tough games. So they are actually not going that well at the moment.
Still, your point is fair - the bigs in that team, especially Brad, are better than the guy in div 2.

In response to skipp - I was at The Dome a couple of weeks ago and saw this guy playing. He looked like an alright player so I asked who he was.

I wouldnt say Damo even really cares about dunking that much. He doesn't try it during games, just warmups, cos he cares much more about winning than making himself look good and showing off.
He can do other things than dunk but he's got a lot of improvement he can still make obviously.

Individuals from a Div 2 team, this thread should have been finished long ago. Basketball is a team game, and div 2 is not the highest div.

North 1 is unstoppable and they only have seven players. I saw them play South 2 round 6 and they won the game too easily 67-17 they probably are going to win again this season and are still unbeaten.

If you think Damo is good there is this guy in North div 3 side he can dunk, block, rebound and he is only 6 foot. I saw him catch an ally dunk in a game but he is not playing in Div 1.Believe it or not i have seen him touch the top of the black box he is a freak.

He was originally in the div2.2 North team but Norwood got in two teams before North and so they had to be dropped from the div2 comp. The other thing is North is too political and 3 div1 players only made the team because their parents are sponsors of the club.

I was told that this thread existed by a guy at my school on the weekend. I've never posted on this site before and was surprised that I was mentioned.

I definately don't feel that I am that great a player, so I don't think I need to be singled out for special attention on this forum.I mean big deal that I dunked in warmups. Have you never seen a guy dunk the ball before? It doesn't make me a good player. I have a lot more improvement to make in all areas of my game, and dunking isn't really a priority in my opinion. There are better players in my team that would be worthy of mention on this site than me (if it is really necessary to talk guys up at all).

As some anonymous posters have said before in this thread, anyone who knows me realises I'm probably one of the last guys who would ever talk himself up, firstly because I'm aware that I'm not that great (I'm a second year Under 18 and I'm not in Div 1), and I'm NOT a cocky, loud, self-centred, egotistical attention grabber. I don't care if I get noticed because I'm not playing basketball for fame. I would play tennis if I wanted individual recognition. I play because I want our team to win and enjoy the sport.

SO..... it would be good if people could stop making it look as though I'm talking myself up, because I had no idea that this thread existed before last Saturday (7/5/05), and it looks as though it was started a long time before that (19/4/05).

I like the comment from skipp though. He must know his stuff, saying that we (Woodville 18 2s) are one of 'the weakest teams in the league'. I don't think 5th position out of 12 teams is all that weak, but thats just me.....

number 50 you're from Centrals right? I believe Damo scored 12 of his teams 35 points, including 6 in the last quarter to give his team the double-digit victory after the game was close in the first 3 quarters.
And if you're talking about the games against Sturt and North, Damo was playing with a badly sprained ankle and was nowhere near his best. The guy couldn't walk without limping and could barely run or jump at all. Considering that the North game didn't really matter much (playoff for 5th place), I think the fact that he even put in the effort to play 35+ minutes deserves a bit of credit in my opinion.

Sturt player, let me get this straight. Playing hard, aggressive defense and giving our best effort when we had a number of players carrying injuries and were without our regular coach is not the way to play basketball? Ok then.....
You were getting the calls from the refs anyway AND you won by 40 so what do you have to complain about? Our "unsportsmanlike" play obviously didn't cramp your (soft) style too much. I think you should toughen up a bit and realise that there is actually a bit of a physical element to the game of basketball as well as being a glamourous scorer.
This seems like Ray Allen vs. Bruce Bowen to me.....
Get over it guys. You won. Isn't that why you play the game? Or is complaining about a few little pushes and holds on your jersey the real motivation for you?

Damon,

I think this is a pointless thread to begin with but since you brought into question out teams "softness" and talked up your own toughness I though it appropriate for me to respond.

Prior to our game against you at state champs I had a great deal of respect for your guys. I thought you were a very hard working team that played fair and physical.

However, during our game on the weekend you guys not only gave up when you were being beaten but you started to pretend like you didnt care about the result (although I am sure you would cared a lot if your team was any chance of winning).

I can understand you had a tough draw of having three games in a day, which would have made this game really hard to win (especially with your injuries). But when you started the trash talking and hard fouls it just made the game a bit of a mockery.

I think your club has built a very good reputation in the U/18 age group of being a 'scrapping', hard working team...I thought after Saturday night you tarnished this reputation and disrespected your club.

I look forward to our next game and hope to see that 'never say die' attitude back, because it makes our contests a good battle. And yes, I expect a physical contest...I am sure we can handle it.

Cheers

Liam,

I admit the trash talking by some of my teammates was unnecessary. They really didn't need to bring that into the game. It's not a usual thing for our team and it would be a shame if it became one because we are not really like that as a group.

Some of our fouls were stupid and a little harsh as well, but we just tried to do what we could but obviously we were outclassed on the night. Personally, I never attempted to do (in this game or any other) anything deliberately 'dirty' or 'unsportsmanlike', and I tried my best not to give up, even though I had a badly sprained ankle from the last game vs Southern. Myself (and my teammates) played as hard as we could and tried to do the best with what we had on the night.

On top of our injuries, we had also had a trip to Starplex and a trip to Morphett Vale during the day, so our team was probably both mentally and physically drained from the rest of the day.

Our game a couple of weeks ago was a better reflection of our ability as a team and I personally felt disappointed that after that strong showing, circumstances didn't allow for us to make another great contest on Saturday night.

What I meant by that comment earlier is that I didn't think a complaint was needed on here by your team. That's all I was pointing out.

I look forward to another meeting where we can let the basketball do the talking.

And as for your comment Big PhiL, I wouldn't ever put in a cheap shot like that. I was trying to grab the ball after you blocked it and I must have touched your ear. I didn't even know what had happened until the ref stopped play a few seconds later. I thought you may have got poked in the eye or something like that.

Why does everyone have a problem with our team's style of play all of a sudden? If it's more physical than you are used to, bad luck, that's how we do things.

I guess I got it back to me the next game though :-) because I sprained my ankle.

HE WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN THE TEAMS SUCCESS LAST SEASON WHEN THEY WON, THIS YEAR WITH NOT AS MUCH TALENT ON THE TEAM, HE BOARDS LIKE THERES NO TOMORROW.. SO BEFORE YOU SHOOT YOUR MOUTH OFF ON HERE, WHY DONT YOU SHOOT YOUR MOUTH OFF AT HIS FACE, THEN SEE WHERE IT GETS YOU.. ANONYMOUS PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE BALLS..

Liam, i think you should read the above, having said that you thought it was appropriate for you to respond, on the internet mind you, why dont you take the young lad aside when you see him to speak to him one on one if you have any grievances to air.. there is no need for a public attack on an individual from someone from your supposed stature in the game, i thought that you would have had more brains than that...

To the anonymous poster of (#34798),

I think if you read both my post and Damon's reply you would see that there is no bad blood - just a discussion about what transpired at a certain game. In fact, I think we reach a common ground and have closed the matter.

Perhaps next time you question my methods of responding to a statement regarding the team I coach on a forum you might want to do it in a different setting all together. By doing doing the exact same thing as I did it maked you come across hypocritical.

In any case, I find it quite comical that someone it took two thirds of their post before they discovered the function of the "caps lock" could question me about my brain capacity...

From your lofty perch on the moral high ground you can decide for yourself what type of character you are showing by "slinging mud" behind an "anonymous" posting.

I am not sure of what your interest is in this thread but its a lot more then anyone else involved in it. Its seems that both the player involved and I have had our say in a respectful and courteous manner... and now the matter is closed. There are no hard feelings and no one stepped over any line as far as I can see or is shown in any of the posts (both of us wished the other well for our next contest).

If this topic means so much to you then by all means email or call me I am happy to discuss further. If you want to continue posting then I suggest you come up with a nick name so at least your insignificant posts can help you get on the forum 'Starting Five'.
