  1. AFLW: Rd 2 Vs Adelaide at Casey

  2. Are we ready for 580 Brownlow votes?

    First game of the season and god has returned to the fold. Our home game, and the G will be packed to the rafters with the riff raff from down the road, living in hope that all will be good again. This single game may well define our season. Beat Geelong with the 3 amigo's playing, and the competition will take notice. And PJ will be more than happy with the gate takings....

    Motlop now at Port....... Both Dangerfield and Selwood struggling to get to the starting line for round 1.
  4. Gold Coast propped up by AFL

    Article quietly hidden in the Financial review: http://www.afr.com/business/sport/the-afl-propped-up-gold-coast-suns-with-25m-after-sponsorship-woes-20180201-h0s15t While most clubs get $10-15M from the AFL each year, this is an absolute disgrace for an enterprise that simply will NOT work. How would an extra $10M go at any other club? There are no fans in the back blocks of the Gold Coast, and the list of failed sporting teams from that area is long. Can't get sponsors....there is a reason for that.....businesses can see value in promotion through sport, but they can also see that money would be wasted with this venture.... How well would a Tasmanian team go if the AFL threw in $25 M toward their operating costs? And then provide ambassadorships to leading players on top of their salary cap?

  6. Time to ditch the Runner

    Runners no longer required at AFL level. The interchange with 90 rotations is sufficient to get the messages out there i.e about 1 rotation occurs each minute....more than sufficient. Mike up the water boys to shout at the players from behind the boundary if needed. If you have ever had to be a runner, it is a frightening job trying to get to a player during play, especially as they get beyond the junior ranks. The ball moves so quickly and you cannot get "in the way". You can't enter the 50 while either side is kicking for goal. Chasing fit young players to get a message to them is bad enough. We already see them scrambling to "get out of the way" at the AFL level. And the Maxwell situation shows how they can exploit the placements on the field. Get rid of them for the big boys.
  7. Big feature on the ABC tonight on 7.30 report about MFC womens players and what they have given up to play for the club Here is at least a write up: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-02-01/aflw-women-career-injury/9380274 and the video link: http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/meet-the-aflw-players-who-sacrificed-their-day/9385274
  8. Maroochydore training camp

    Featured on Ch 9 News tonight... Also from the AFL site: http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-01-29/hello-sunshine-demons-crank-up-the-heat
  9. Are we ready? Rory Sloane

    The other thing which will come into play is the increase in the salary cap for everyone of around $2M. It was effective from June 2017, but contracts would have already been signed for the 2017 year, so the can of worms opens in 2018: http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-06-20/players-get-20-per-cent-pay-rise-in-new-cba If you have a quality young list you will be able to pay them to stay with the extra money. If you don't....then you go shopping.
  10. Are we ready? Rory Sloane

    Doesn't look like it: https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/sport/afl/teams/sydney/kurt-tippetts-injury-settlement-will-allow-sydney-to-snare-a-quality-player-at-seasons-end/news-story/f9d9a94c8540b7746b6fc77b5abd85fe contracted to end of 2018 https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/kurt-tippett-retires-sydney-forward-retires-after-178-games/news-story/664ca58f73b8232f3bd3eb3fb027e8c3
  11. Are we ready? Rory Sloane

    Gaff is already too old for our profile. 2 years ago he may have fitted, but regardless the Eagles will throw plenty enough to keep him. The big money for Sloane will come from Sydney, with $900k spare from Tippets retirement. North already had enough to offer Dusty and Kelly bucket loads (but who would want to go there?). Collingwood are all wind....Pendelbury is already the highest paid AFL player, and Treloar will be earning a motzza by now. They won’t have enough left for a player like Lynch.
  12. Sponsorship Problem?

    .......Perhaps we should be chasing big companies like....Jeep, Bingle, Dare chocolate drink, Mission foods, iinet, Jeldwen, Hostplus, Border express......some of them have sponsored the past 5 premiers!
  13. JLT Experiments

    ...To play our "bottom 22" players, so that our "top 22" play 3 games less during the year, and win matches toward the end, instead of hitting the wall again when it counts.....
  14. Fenceology Predicts the ladder

    If the Oija board thinks North is going to finish ahead of Collingwood or Freo, then it is connecting with the wrong spirits.
  15. Preseason Training Week commencing - 15/01/18

    Billy must correct his running style if he is to make it. He takes his first 3 steps sideways, before he accelerates forward. You don't get that much time in AFL level football. As he is taking those first 3 steps he moves the ball in hand from side to side, and as a result cannot get a kick off. It's only when he has "stabilised" that he is able to deliver the ball.
