Caps to sell out The Palace?

By johnboy - 11 March 2009 35

According to a Canberra radio station the Canberra Capitals have just a few hundred tickets left for their Grand Final clash with the Bulleen Boomers at the AIS Arena on Friday night (just before the rugby).

When those tickets go their will be a limited release of standing room tickets.

First home grand final since 2003 and potentially a very boozy double-header at Bruce.

“Chantella Perera”, the defense rest’s its case M’lud.

John-boy – Yes! Sport is great for children, but is a vastly over-emphasised adult activity in our media.
And the constant litany of overpaid footballers getting caught up in alcohol/drugs and sexual assault stories (and their supporters in brawls) doesn’t do much to convince me I might be wrong.

“Emlyn”, sounds Welsh to me (never trust the Welsh).

Get real! Female Basketball players are hids!

In any case, at some stage towards the end of adolescence, we mature and stop playing games in order to engage in more adult pursuits.

Not if we want to carry on developing as a person we do not, play and games are a lifelong and necessary part of human development. Stopping them, or refusing to adapt them, means a stunted growth.

We may change from Basketball to ballooning, or from soccer to paragliding, but we never stop playing. Not if we have an sense of value of self.

Personally, I find women attractive if they are smart and personable – neither characteristic applies to these over-muscular and monosyllabic women

I cannot imagine where you get your ideas from, if you do not watch the sport how do you know these women are “over-muscular and monosyllabic”?

They are neither in fact, except in your jandiced and prejudiced eye.

I’m not saying they are all stunners, but they are in the main, intelligent and athletic.

who continue to play children’s games long into adulthood.

See above. It must be your refusal to play which has led to your poverty of thought.

The same argument could be made of male athletes surely?

So you’re just anti-sport?

why is whether it’s american relevant? other than AFL, no sport/game is indigenous. ignorant comment. i’m not american by the way, but i just fail to see the point here. isn’t cricket also an imperialistic tool? 🙂 the girls playing is also better live and better than guys basketball (although NBA is a bit more exciting than the australian mens league) it’s not run up to the basket, dunk, rup to the basket, dunk, it’s a bit more skillful than that… and besides, pommy bastard puts it the best – there’s loads of girls out there who find these guys inspirational – that’s their fan base and who they play for every week. it’s also good that ALL kids have someone to look up to other than people who wee all over others in pubs and alleged rapists. especially a successful canberran sporting team…

I find it very difficult to understand how Canberrans could stoop to following such a bland bit of Americana as Basketball. It’s less interesting than watching Golf, even. I guess that’s the power of advertising – people are suckers for it.

My daughter plays it, it’s been a very worthy activity for her in terms of both her physical and social development. Watching the Capital is inspirational for her.

As for me, I find it hard to see how anyone (male) can find ten fit, and very tall / leggy, healthy young women running around and getting a sweat on unentertaining

Or perhaps it is just because I enjoy playing the sport myself and appreciate watching people who can play the game far better than me.

I gots me tickets!

I also find basketball a completely unentertaining sport. This view was moderately affected by lycra for a while, though.

Perhaps being pushed night after night on WIN News as well as the politically correct push to promote women’s sport has a lot to do with it.

Does this include all the tickets being given away by radio stations and The Canberra Times (not to mention seating for the various sponsors and their staff and families)?

toriness 1:09 pm 11 Mar 09

Got mine too. It was a farking debacle the way season and supporter ticket holders were handled (cheers again for that Basketball Canberra) but I’m over it now and just sick with excitement about the GF!

Pommy bastard 12:01 pm 11 Mar 09
