  1. About 6-8 years ago a room was dedicated to the game at the Bentleigh club. The pull down screen was fuzzy but I doubt if it would cost much to upgrade it. There was a bar in the room and free nibbles at half time. A nice sized crowd would usually be there and it was a good experience to be among only dee fans barracking loudly and as much as we liked. Gradually each of those disappeared to the point where for the last few years, games are shown in the sports bar (with the races etc) or on small 32cm screens in a corner of the pokies room. It was like they wanted us out of there. As
  2. BTW, his dad reads and for a while posted on DL. Ess wouldn't poach him if he wasn't very highly thought of. PJ promoted him to the role so that says something and I think it is churlish to blame him for all the communication issues people perceive about the club. While I think he is a loss, it is good for his career to get experience somewhere else. I wish him every success
  3. After the committed allocations (eg MCC, AFL, etc) the 'Home' side members get priority. If there is any left the 'Away' team members get priority. who-gets-in-to-watch-football-in-round-one- One would think that for atmosphere they would allocate some to the 'Away' team otherwise it will be one sided barracking. Carlton fans won't be happy being locked out of round 1 but hey who cares! Good for us in round 1 as we are the 'Home' side vs Freo. It shouldn't affect us unless the system is still in place in round 5 when we play Hawks as the 'Away' team at the G. G
  4. See my comments in the body of your post.
  5. Nobody steps up. Put in a 'Committee of Administration' like shareholder's or banks do with companies or governments do when the incumbents are incompetent or lacked achievements over an extended period; this has happened to a number of Local Government Councils. Bartlett has had 8 years with little to show for it. And for mine too many mis-steps. 8 years is long enough to make some sort of positive impact. He hasn't If what you say about including MCC affiliates in our member numbers is correct it is very concerning. Not so much that they are included but if the club has c
  6. Thanks for the excellent summary. So he wants to vet potential Board candidates. mfc isn't his private law practice. It is our club and he can't run it like a fiefdom. The more info that is coming out about the Board election and the AGM the more concerned I am about Bartlett's appropriateness for the role and therefore the direction of our beloved football club. As an aside he needs to tell members why it is so critical we are in the MCG precinct. I'm not advocating a move to Casey. But there are other options within 5km of the MCG. Other MCG tenant clubs not locate
  7. I'm pretty sure the $5m was to upgrade facilities at Casey as part of AFLW start up. The longer Bartlett is obsessed about our facilities being in the 'MCG precint' the longer it will take to get any proposal going and to get any funding. Geelong, Bulldgos and Saints have done very nicely. North not so.
  8. 21 inside 50 to 3 and we trail by a point! Like other years we may kick ourselves out of finals/top 4.
  9. That was rather selfish (by Zanka, I think?) trying to kick a goal form outside 50! Didn't even look for a team mate. Low percentage play.
  10. Not sure how much of an advantage as not all teams play each other so the fixture depends on how the AFL manipulates it to help the teams they want in the finals. I've mentioned it before but Carlton is one such team. Since they lost their first two they have played newbie teams; Saints and Tigers. I would expect them to get a lot more of the low teams to help them to finals. On the other hand we will get Freo, Crows, Lions and GWS making it harder for us to finish up the ladder/top 4. How many of those 4 games are i/state who knows but we need to win i/state because of 'Home' finals
  11. Am beginning to think North aren't as good as many thought. Track record so far is: Rnd 1: vs Cats. Win 11.5.71 vs 1.3.9 Rnd 2: vs Saints. Win 5.6.36 vs 1.4.10 Rnd 3: vs Mighty Dees: Loss 8.3.51 vs 9.6.60 Rnd 4: vs Pies: Loss 0.8.8 vs 4.4.28 I don't think they are as bad as the score vs Pies suggests (bad kicking) nor as good as the first two wins vs newbie teams. Are they becoming the 'flat track bullies' of the AFLW? Hopefully today's game gives more insight on where we sit in the comp. It is also a classic '8-point game'. Win and we go two games u
  12. If only it was the footy as the price being paid. The financial, physical and emotional price is extensive for many.
