    Opinion Umpiring: Corruption or Incompetence, or both

    Don't want to take this thread off-topic but, yes, our forward set-up stinks, and has for years. Lead to the same spots, compete against each other, and drag their defender to the contest, creating easy 3rd man.

    Opinion Umpiring: Corruption or Incompetence, or both

    Won't matter. Tredrea was brutalised his entire career, Robbie the same, although he doesn't help himself at times. Tredrea was so strong that the defenders small infringements were somewhat lessened in their impact because he would play through them, yet when he'd have his head almost...

    Opinion Umpiring: Corruption or Incompetence, or both

    Nothing wrong with the idea, but the last thing we need is a reason for more marks on the ground. It would be the catalyst for grid markings across the ground, then zones. Instead, I wish umpires were coached to umpire the game, rather than react like robots. I guarantee the boundary umpire was...

    Opinion Umpiring: Corruption or Incompetence, or both

    Couple of simple fixes: Boundary umpires actually watch the flight of the football (one of their two jobs) Boundary umpire stays at the point where the ball crossed, and doesn't move downfield until the mark is set by the field umpire

    Autopsy Round 12, 2020 vs Geelong

    I agree, he isn't that good.

    Autopsy Round 12, 2020 vs Geelong

    We did go for Scott, we just couldn't afford his salary or the staff he wanted.

    Unofficial Preview Sack Hinkley 3? Seriously? Sack the mug already!

    I accept your point of view. To be fair, it's not solely because of the coach. It's as much to do with the Chairman, CEO and Board. I'll add, declining memberships is about the only message a supporter can send these days. Finally, not renewing my membership wasn't my first action, it was my...

    Unofficial Preview Sack Hinkley 3? Seriously? Sack the mug already!

    I didn't watch the Richmond game, but feel free to check my post history, where it should be clear that I've been saying the same things about Ken and his coaching for years.

    Unofficial Preview Sack Hinkley 3? Seriously? Sack the mug already!

    I don't post here so much any more because life is pretty busy. I don't watch AFL much any more for essentially the same reason. I always used to find time to watch Port, because I love my club, but I've only watched 2 full games this season, not because I'm too busy, but because I cannot...

    Opinion Ben Perkins - get him now

    Hinkley doesn't do "outside voices/expertise". There won't be people like Perkins associated with the club under our current structure- Perkins has said as much on Twitter in the past. As RussellEbertHandball stated, it's about ego.

    Toast #BringBackTheBars - Our Heritage, Our History, Our Right!

    I'd add, any decent footy supporter, including Crows supporters that aren't stuck with the "not the real Port Adelaide" mental injury, are pro-bars, or don't care either way. Eddie is just a moron and it's high-time the AFL acknowledge it, then ignore, or even better, call-out his...

    Toast #BringBackTheBars - Our Heritage, Our History, Our Right!

    Daniel Norton said as much on Twitter. There are more coming. If this is a planned push, as it appears to be, some people at the club, and associated with the club, deserve a fair bit of credit. Koch is saying, mostly, the right things in public, for once, but my information is that other...

    Autopsy David Koch & The Vanillarisation of Port Adelaide

    I'm OK with him saying this if it's a part of the long game. In the end, say whatever you want, but sign nothing.

    Autopsy David Koch & The Vanillarisation of Port Adelaide

    Absolutely no issue with you thanking the club, but if you use Twitter as a platform, I'd be sure to thank Darren Cahill. More than anyone, in the current climate at our club, he needs to see, and have other see, we are behind him.

    Toast #BringBackTheBars - Our Heritage, Our History, Our Right!

    Reversing this exact post also shows how much preventing Port Adelaide using its most famous and popular guernsey impacts negatively on the club, and its supporters. Do you seriously believe that us not being able to wear our traditional guernsey will not have any affect on our club at all? How...

    Toast #BringBackTheBars - Our Heritage, Our History, Our Right!

    Yes, vehemently against it. I would rather never wear it, than wear a bastardised version. To change it to suit an opposition club would utterly shatter the very argument for pushing so hard* to wear it. *I don't think Port (our Vanilla Board) pushes hard enough.

    Unfortunately, whether it's as little as 6, or as much as 18, it's enough to do serious harm.

    Not if he has anything to do about it.
