Re: Do Hibberd and Townsend Represent an New Hard Nut Squad Strategy?

Hell hath no fury like a footballer scorned. I believe our four mature age recruits all have a point to prove and that can be a great motivator. I suppose it depends on how many break down after the first couple of games. Honestly how many has-been players have we dragged in over the years, hoping ...

In Jobe Watson and James Hird we have perhaps two of the most tragic figures in football.

Both the victims of a gross miscarriage of justice.

To see Hirdy collect his 2000 Norm Smith again brought tears to my eyes. Greatest injustice ever done to any club hero. :!:

Re: 2020 - Dead Before it Started??

Perhaps the distinct lack of fluff pieces in the media for a change could be a turn for the better. This time last year we were being touted as a certain Top 4 finisher and even a potential Premier by some pundits. We now all know how that went. Conversely this year it would appear the harbingers o...

Re: Fitness / Shitness Staff

So all of a sudden, the new arrivals are looking pretty good :D
We have no excuse now, play every kid that shows the least bit of promise on a rotational basis and let those who are fit mentor them. Surely if, (IF??), it's really that bad we can get some special dispensations on player eligibility.

Oscar Pistorius will probably be our next ruck. Those springs of his should give him some reach. :roll:

Re: Jacob Townsend

Where’s ‘Big Kev’ when you need him? CayzL0CIZHY Not sure if you are just “excited” by the prospect of Towner in the lineup or lamenting the fact that our squad is now largely made up of the cheap stuff in the supermarket aisle. I'm guessing it's the latter - but at least he didnt put a clip of Dad...

Stsphen Dank was arrested yesterday on charges relating to fraud and causing harm at an antii-aging clinic he worked at in the NT.
