I think previous seasons were also boring, we just had more hope that we would eventually sign someone good and that carried us through. But we've traditionally been very slow to sign players.

So what's the rationale behind this rule?

It was the winner in the stupid fucking idea of the day competition at FFA

Yeah I agree. Other teams always seem to do business quicker than us. I wonder why that is?

Is it players who don't want to play for us? We can't offer enough and are waiting the last minute left overs? Are we so much dependent on other developments with in the group?  

I struggle to see the real benefit of getting the team together so late.

IMO its the opposite. We have a bigger range and influence due to our scouts and CFG label and as such we hold out to get the best player possible, whereas some of the other clubs are content to sign the first name on their shortlist that says ok.

In saying that, most clubs havent signed anybody major yet. Only WSW, CCM and Newy have been active, the other clubs, including us, have mostly only signed players around the fringes.

In my view a big reason the signings seem slow this year is that for once we haven't punted 75% of the squad (which then led to the coach spending half the season talking about jelling).

In short it's actually a positive.

CFG certainly know how to increase membership numbers. 

I definitely know how they could but I don't want to bore everyone.

Hint: it involves signing a Greek player.

I don't agree. As far as I'm concerned our "pre-season" for 2017-18 started the day after we wimped out of the finals series 0-2 to Perth, i.e. 24th April.

But I wasn't referring only to on-field matters, signings, coaching changes etc. It's probably just a reflection of my overall mood about the club, but nothing since our finals exit has really given me that "wow!" feeling. Not yet. Our first competitive match for 2017-18 is in only two weeks time.

I'd assume with Strider's twisted mind, it would be both really.

I think we know who Strider would be in that photo

I've had a few catch ups with Strider at "Poof Doof" over the years ... What?  A couple straight guys can't head to a local homosexual establishment for a refreshing lime and peach spritzer? Fuck you.

Looks too skinny to be Messi and too white to be Ronaldo.

Stumped.
