Larkey should have assessed his options before re-signing with the Kangaroos. 

I admire his loyalty. To many of our players left us & it was frustrating. 

But yeah maybe he thought this season they'd be travelling better

Maybe he needs to stop flopping in marking contest first it embarrassing for a senior play with a side full of young kids.

West coast: ‘We’re so bad we need priority picks’

North Melbourne: ‘Hold my beer’

I've been running the line for the last few years that Nth didn't deserve high-end priority picks but if they don't show any improvement this year, they'll need some serious help. This is a worse hole than we were in.

Priority picks that that they have to trade for players (similar to the mini-draft of GWS), increased salary cap, increased player list. They're at risk of having their young high pick midfielders not developing properly and/or leaving if they're not competitive soon.

Are you kidding?

We were so bad for so long ... lost quite a few matches by margins over 100 points.

Nth have had plenty of drubbings too. Their percentage has been woeful for years.

If you look at the past 4 years, it's worse than any 4 year period we had during Bailey or Neild years.

Nth:
2023 - 3 wins
2022 - 2 wins
2021 -4 wins
2020 - 3 wins*(out of 17 games)

Melbourne's three year bad patch of 2012,2013 and 2014 (where signs of recovery were obvious)  yielded 4, 2 and 4 wins.  2011 had 8 wins. 2015 had 7 wins. We won 5 games in 2008 and 2009.

They've had 4 very bad years in a row. If they have another bad year (as I stated in my post) without showing obvious signs of improvement they need help. I stand by that.

They look to me a little like GWS early days. They’ve picked the best kids available over 3-4 drafts - but now have lots of mids and no structure to support it. It’s a risk, especially watching McKercher running around knowing he’ll be the first target for Tassie.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
