Round Eight of the A-League was RAW!

-

People’s elbows, magic lamps, body slams and epic walkouts all feature in an huge Round Eight edition of A-League RAW!

Jade North slams salt in wound of Braedyn Crowley’s botched goal

Minutes after Braedyn Crowley’s ‘miss of the year contender’, Brisbane Roars’ Jade North got the better of the Jets’ youngster in a hands-on tussle.

With the ball flying in the air towards them, North pulled Crowley to the ground before then slamming him back to the ground when Crowley attempted to get up.

Crowley didn’t seem to take well to North’s attempt to apologise.

Was North rubbing in Crowley’s botched goal? Even if he was, Crowley shouldn’t be disheartened because big-time athletes botch plays on the biggest stages all the time…

Brock Lesnar completely botched his attempt at a Shooting Star Press during WrestleMania 19. But it didn’t cramp Lesnar’s style as he went onto win the match against Kurt Angle and become the new champion.

The Mikael Tavares People’s Elbow sends Roly Bonevacia searching for magic

It went unnoticed during Sydney FC’s goalless draw with Wellington Phoenix, but the Tavares People’s Elbow left Bonevacia ferociously rubbing his head like Aladdin trying conjure the genie from a magic lamp.

Unfortunately, Wellington couldn’t find any of the Ned Zelic’s “magical fantasy” and Sydney FC never did “lay the Smackdown.” Maybe both teams would get a win by channelling The Rock like this Arena Football player?

How to make an impact with your walkout

Thousands of Wanderers and Victory fans staged a protest walkout at matches this weekend and it virtually destroyed the atmosphere at the game.

If the A-League was WWE and the fans wanted to make an impact then they wouldn’t stage a mass walkout, they’d stage a mass entrance!

By occupying the live show (Raw), the #YesMovement forced Triple H and the WWE into awarding Daniel Bryan an opportunity to battle for the championship at WrestleMania 30 – and he made the most of it!

I’m not saying that A-League fans should storm the pitch but there are creative ways to get what you want.
