Despite the suggestion that Hale would go to either club, he eventually landed at Hawthorn when the Hawks trumped Melbourne's offer. 1998 Agreed to join then changed his mind and stayed at West Coast
  3. My best five in my lifetime (not in order) would have to be: Ronald Dale Barassi Alan Johnson Robert Flower Gary Hardeman Jim Stynes David Schwartz Hard to leave out Lyon, Dixon, Adams,Mithen, Wells, Brian Keneally,,,,,,, etc
  4. No it did not... As late as four years ago they were a strength
  5. My gut feeling is we would have.. Just think Jordan Lewis would have played for only one Club.... Ha ha ha ha
  6. Who remembers the Hawthorn Demons jumper... At least we would have won a Premiership or three since 1964
  7. If it is Jeremy Nicholls is that the same guy who was on the Board of the MFC in 2013. Records show "X" player on Google
  8. Dammm I thought you were serious.. I think its a good idea.....
  9. I see where the Suns and Freo play in both conferences... That will bugger them well.... Good idea
  10. An absolutely great post and I agree with all comments
  11. What a rude arrogant pig McGuire is...
  12. You are entitled to your narrow perspective. I am looking long term as a result of this turmoil. My opinion for what it is worth. The AFL are not going to spill all the coffee beans they will leave some in the cup to mature.
  13. These are shortsightedness arguments. The League and in turn the Clubs are bigger than you and me and their aim is for long term security. Unfortunately this Virus interruption has brought Clubs back to reality both financially and vulnerability and they WILL to to look after number 1. They most definitely will start to look outside the square, the bubble of past AFL life and consider life long deliverance. That will include mergers. The AFL is run by the Clubs equally and they will band together for long term survival against the odds at present. Watch this space.
