    Preseason 2021

    I may be naive but surely after a year of lockdown, and this one going to be a year of uncertainty the club can invest some funds in providing extended training vision and full copies of praccy matches to reward members On SM-G975F using BigFooty.com mobile app

    Truth thread: Who's still dining out on 2016?

    The entire month of finals in 2016 was.the best month of my then nearly 50 years, will never be matched. Now however every season whether it be the dogs or in local footy I want to win as it sure beats the hollow feeling of not winning. Only difference now is I have actually seen us win one...

    As stated I agree now is not the time if it will be done it has to be off season. My bigger issue is the false justification of the name change nothing more. If it is to be, it is to be On SM-G975F using BigFooty.com mobile app

    Realistically a members vote year end is the only way to put this to bed given we are actually a member based club. Now is not the time, all resources need to be allocated to achieving on field and off field results during these difficult times. I actually have no issue with any member who...

    Yep changed it back quickly when the worked out the name North Melbourne offered no restrictions in growing their brand throughout Melbourne and Australia. Was a similar time to our name change. St Kilda also toyed with the Southern Saints in the Marketing hype 90's. Both have grown more than...

    Whilst I agree the name will never revert back what relevance in a negative sense is there in actually calling the club by what is still its actual name? Every other Melbourne based club have not changed their name to grow and quite a few are not even based in the suburb where the club started...

    As much as I agree with everything in your post, in all honesty have given up worrying, too many have bought in to the marketing spin now. Not only here have a look at the Facebook pages. Not enough are proud of our history to carry it forward, though every other Melbourne club have no issues...

    Liverpool is half the size of Birmingham with a population barely the size of Perth 1.3 mill in a small country with a population close to 68 mill (England only) Arsenal was Woolwich Arsenal basically a suburb of London where they do not even play. I would have thought the analogies are more...

    Excellent post D Mitchell. For a change 100% agree with your analysis. Had too many debates on this forum over the last 15 plus years but we are and always should be Footscray On SM-G975F using BigFooty.com mobile app

    Preseason 2021

    Bit pessimistic there Bresker, at least the next 3 to equal the Hawks, Lions and Dees and a good chance to be up there with the Collingwood 4 flags in a row I would have thought

    Western Region FL - Divy 1 2021

    Whether you are part of the Deer Park inner sanctom, or are one of the many who have issues with them, remember their location means they will never build a junior base. There are many traditional clubs in this position. The salary cap is and will always be a joke. 46 points allows clubs...

    Dunkley and the other players

    Yep all for trading him at the end of next season when he still has 1 year to go on his contract. He can never be in the leadership group of our club any more with his behaviour. Now at least there may be opportunities with other clubs. Given he is contracted for 2 more years I do expect...

    The Otherworldly Circus - The America Thread

    You write so much waffle, a clear Trump cultist who has zero knowledge of the traditional Republican party, which though not being American those with any understanding would know the true values of the Republican party, hijacked firstly by the Tea Party and now by the Cult of Trump. The...

    Pro Trump suppoters will provide nothing in what the orange man actually brings to the table other than Biden is bad. I.would probably sit in the old GOP parameters. Trump has destroyed the Republican party and all it stands for. Hopefully the GOP can one day become the party it was as at the...

    IF all players noted can play the roles and gel making us at least as good up forward, then of course Naughton could go back. Just doubt they could go close On SM-G975F using BigFooty.com mobile app
