  1. Such a shame he was born about 5 years too early. His silk could've really helped us during the Northey years, might have helped us pinch a flag in 1990.
  2. As well there should have been. But I think that's different to a being a club in crisis.
  3. Assistants come and go, it's the CEO, President, Coach, Footy Manager - the key roles that promote stability.
  4. It's the mental crises of posters projected onto the club.
  5. Continuously trying to develop and complicate the gameplan stifles the players and bogs them down. Goodwin needs to pull back a bit and let the players play to their strengths, just "trying harder" isn't going to help anyone. Getting away and learning from different organisations offers fresh perspective and can help blow away the cobwebs.
  6. We don't need superstars. We need solid players with speed and elite disposal who can play 200 games for the club.
  7. A history of drug use doesn't necessarily make you a [censored]
  8. You might want to put a big asterisk on this post. Because come round 10 next year and Harley's still in the rehab group a bunch of posters on here will be using it as evidence of the certain demise of the club.
  9. No different to about half the comp then
  10. You'll get weaker teams making finals if the 9th and 10th sides play the bottom teams double up and 7th and 8th play the top. Plus there's 18 teams, not 16.
  11. They could save a bunch of cash and log on here to engage with the Mensa crowd
  12. And if we had a better draw from a financial perspective you'd be complaining it's much harder from a competitive perspective Some people will just complain no matter what It's time we stopped relying on opposition supporters to boost crowd numbers. We had over 50k members in 2019 and had a predominantly Melbourne crowd to both MCG finals in 2018 (90k plus). We have the supporters to make money off any games it's up to us to show up and support the team
  13. We tried that a few years back. Lost by 31 goals.
  14. Would you rather play Essendon at docklands? It gives us an extra game at the G and we have games vs Richmond Collingwood and Carlton
  15. North don't want to play Collingwood and Essendon down there because they make money off those games in Melbourne. Our supporters don't go to docklands so when we play north they lose money (or font make much). That's why we play down in Tassie. You want games in Vic you have to turn up
  16. We played Bombers as home team last year because we were away on Queens Birthday. AFL said years ago that the reason we didn't host Essendon was because we got to host the Pies. So we should theoretically get home games against the Bombers every other year.
  17. It's a glass half empty/full scenario really. At the end of the day the major factor in all this will be our performance. Play like 2019 and it won't matter who we play and when we will lose out. Play like 2018 and the sky's the limit.
  18. We're hosting Anzac Eve and Queens Birthday plus a home game against Carlton. Plus the bank from our NT home game vs Adelaide. Pretty good from a financial standpoint.
  19. We play Adelaide in Alice Springs May 17th I think - hope its a similar result to our last game against them there
