  1. 2017 AFL Season

    Yes. North beat them by 10goals remember. Will they be beaten? Geez it looks a big ask for either of the Tigers or Giants. I don't recall a side being so even across the field as Adelaide are this year. Won't begrudge them the flag at all, best side all year, even if i think GWS' best is better.
  2. Memberships

    Yeh i think we'll have to agree to disagree there tbh. Obv you'd want to be a bit smarter (less blunt) around how you say it, but in my book if you want your say to be acknowledged, you pretty much need to be a member.
  3. Memberships

    Look he has every right to give up membership or whatever he likes, but imo loses the right to a certain degree of respect from paying members when preaching to everyone about whats good for the game etc. It's hard to take anyone seriously that wants to complain about the clubs, the FFA and what they are doing to the game when they have their own self-interest in front of the club to start with. And look thats ok, some people are just theatre goers, some people lose interest, some have tight budgets, others have kids and family and can't spend the time there. Nothing wrong with any of that. But spare me the bullshit (not aimed at you btw) about not being fair-weather when you stop paying for a membership based on lists, league or club issues.
  4. Memberships

    100% this. IMO you forfeit your right to whinge somewhat if you're not a member. Doesnt mean your opinion isnt right, but its hard to argue you have the best interests of your club at heart if you're not.

    All the woke twitterazi reckon it was a plant from the No camp haha
  6. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Tbh i think it would actually help their case, esp if he is a success. Lets not forget its only a 2-3 month contract in all likelihood, so they could sign him up for the following season etc if need be.
  7. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    If he's any good he'll get another one easily, or the school will even give him unpaid leave etc for the two or three months he's away.
  8. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Yep, not worth his while. If we offered him 200k of Bruno's salary for a couple month stint it might be enough to persuade him to have a crack. It's essentially a free crack for us, given it would be insurance money.

    My season preview : City certainly haven’t had a sexy off season, signing or performance wise, but they’ve strengthened their side from last season. They’ve addressed their issues at the back, with most of their signings defensive, whilst bringing in a 10, what they lacked in the front half. Whether Budzinski proves to be a success is another thing, but regardless of his pedigree or resume if CFG think he’s worthy of a marquee spot, he’s more likely than not going to be at least decent. They’ve arguably got the best squad depth-wise in the league, batting all the way down to their youth. As a summary from a senior squad perspective: IN Budzinski (MV), Schenkeveld (V), Galekovic, Mauk, Carrusca, La Rocca, Jamieson, Crowley OUT Colazo (MV), Sorensen (V), Rose, Retre, Franjic, Kuzmanovski, Gameiro, Caceres There are however, some valid concerns that outsiders and City fans will have, in particular that they will start the season without their main man in Fornaroli, and for the first few weeks at least are likely to have limited impact from Brandan returning from an ACL injury. There is also the query on the new coach and his style, and whether he can get the best out of what is a talented squad, something JVS and Michael Valkanis clearly couldn’t. The Sydney Cup game a week ago was obviously an abject failure, a tactical gamble that was up-ended before it started by conceding from a free kick. Joyce will need to show a bit more flexibility than that if he is to get the ship moving. At the end of the day, the gaffer was the most important signing Melbourne made over the summer, and only time will tell if it was a good one. IMO City could end up absolutely anywhere, from first to perhaps 7th, but I wouldn’t back against a top 4 finish personally. Similar to last season, if it clicks then look out.

    Yeh clickbait. Just trying to create interest ahead of the season. I'm in the boat that we could be anything this season, but i struggle to see us missing the six. We still have the deepest squad of anyone, and I'm thinking that perhaps we might learn to become a little less predictable without Bruno in the side. In saying that, he's a super star and will be a very welcome addition back in the side, particularly if we continue a labouring approach as seen in the cup game. As i mentioned a week or so ago, if we can;t secure a decent quality visa replacement for Bruno, I'd be more than happy to give Lujic a contract thats worth his while for a few months to give him a shot. I personally think he's very capable.

    As per usual, if you're an out and out activist on either side of the debate, chances are you're probably a crumb.
  12. Domestic Politics

    It's as good as. The rhetoric that the government might go against the popular vote is one of the more retarded ideas to have circled around in recent history.
  13. Sam Kerr

    As if any of the clubs wouldn't fork out the required $$$ to get the job done. No way she leaves Perth imo.
  14. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Aye, always forget about him cos he looks and acts so much older
  15. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    6 scholarship players, plus Crowley and Arzani as squad members.
