  1. I believe it was a trial for doing this in the mens game. It looked terrible this year for the woman buut mainly as new teams came in that were powerful straight away and made grading difficult. Gil, for all his faults would like to make the draw more equitable in the mens game. Im behind that. if conferences is the way to get there then so be it.

    New Major Sponsor - Jaguar CONFIRMED

    Look, its always great to get a new sponsor. But, a one year deal is a bit of a show of lack of faith imo. The roundabout of sponsors continues as does a lack of a viable home base. Cant get excited about this.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Probably true. But seems like this available technology has pushed “ fame” or getting likes on Facebook or twitter ahead of any kind of moral code.

    Demons Grand Plan for Yarra Park Training HQ

    So... it really was a pipe dream? My feeling is both Pert and Bartlett ( who appointed him) have a lot on the line here.

    Pert's Plan to Make the Dees an AFL Power

    I like that idea. Offer a paid contribution to the club ( as it is now) or just tick the box to be a member. Maybe offer some benefits with MCC/MFC membership to increase their involvement and willingness to pay next time. Try to draw them in. Any loss, as you point out, will be offset by all the other benefits of membership growth.

    Pert's Plan to Make the Dees an AFL Power

    Joint member fr 20 plus years also. I’m happy to “ donate” my membership fees and I also donate at other times as well. I pay WAY more than even a mid tier membership to the club. But it seems many dont share the sentiment or maybe just don’t care enough about football in general to do so. They need to come up with something that the membership gets them to give it a practical purpose. Perhaps in the possible future of a social club at Yarra park it gets them membership? Anything really.

    Pert's Plan to Make the Dees an AFL Power

    Well there’s little danger of us being Collingwood, Richmond or hawthorn atm. But, unlike Pert, I’d love us to be like any of them lol. They all have recently won flags and have massive, and growing supporter bases.... and kick [censored] facilities. One can hope

    AFLX Revamped

    Omg. We don’t soccer to challenge AFL as the big threat. We will kill the game all by ourselves.

    Farewell Dom Tyson

    He’s better than that imo. We just have freakish ability in Oliver, viney and Brayshaw at the coal face. Given an ongoing role at stoppages I think Tyson will be a very good player ar North.... but they won’t be top 4.

    Peak Petracca

    Funny because as a junior I remember him saying he loved the clutch moments.Not so at this level yet. I do I think he’s developing into real quality and had a good year, but he just can’t get the space he used to get underage and doesn’t have the extreme pace of a martin or a degoey needed to get it. Nor will ever. I also think that it was really drilled into him to lose the big ego he carried into the AFL...earn his place.. team first etc. so I have a sense that finding his strut again on the big stage is probably important to a player like him. My hope is with the younger players coming in underneath him he’ll grow into leadership and refind it. May be the difference between being a really good player and potentially great one.

    5th Consecutive Profit

    A good result, but without a home base this isnt going to last. Has to be top priority now or we're going to be left behind...again.

    2019 Fixture

    Or ...we where just bent over like the MFC often is. We have GOT to stop frikn playing in Darwin. Utter stupidity when we r a chance to be top 4. I can only imagine we’ve been forced.

    Vale Colin Sylvia

    Easy to forget, in the fishbowl of AFL and chasing hard that ever elusive flag, just how human the players are. How much they hurt when things don’t go well and the personal difficulties some go through under the microscopic lense of the afl media. Thanks col for all the memories ... loving thoughts to your family

    Rumour File

    Yep. They increased it by two, but the 4th year is contingent on games played in the other 3. Although, as someone pointed out , if they cant get him up in year 2 he’ll just be retired most likely anyway... so risk isn’t as big as it sounds. Still reckon he’ll “miraculously” be there round 1 but we’ll see. Im concerned about how much power the players have now in general at trade time tbh. Someone needs to be looking after the overall health of the clubs and the equality of the comp. players as individuals or player managers have no such care.
