    Unofficial Preview The Up and Coming 20

    What excites me about 2017 is the opportunity to see what our next generation of players is capable of. We haven't seen a lot of our young players over the past two years due to injury, form and opportunity. But our 'Up and Coming 20' includes some exciting names and I think all these guys...

    Alright you whiney bitches, it's about time you stopped playing soft, namby pamby football and took a good hard look in the mirror. We have good depth this year, it's about time we started operating with a three strikes and YOU'RE OUT policy! I'm talking to you: ATLEY - So what if you can run...

    Seamless Transition or Complete Rebuild

    I'm interested in a more informed discussion of our list turnover over the next 4-6 years, what this means for our on-field fortunes, our off-field recruitment and the prospects of some individual players on our list. For the purposes of stimulating discussion, I have: Started with our 'best...

    Rumour Apparently We're Into Lachie Henderson

    Preseason Countdown Poll 7: Our Position After Round 5

    I believe North's season will be set up in the first 5 rounds of H&A. Once again, North starts the season with a challenging early draw. In rounds 1 - 5, we play Hawthorn, Port, Geelong at Skilled, plus Adelaide in Adelaide. We also have a very winnable game against Brisbane. Our draw really...

    Season Countdown Poll 8: Which Rookie Will Be Our Best Performed in 2015?

    North has had mixed success at the draft table over the past five years. The 2013 draft was North's best draft for some years. Luke McDonald was the stand out - the first round father son pick played 23 games, including two finals and finished third in the NAB Rising Star. Kayne Turner and...

    Season Countdown Poll 9. The Lazarus Factor: Who will prove a point in 2015?

    In 2014 Levi Greenwood, Sam Wright and Michael Firrito proved a point to those who had written them off too early. Liam Anthony and Taylor Hine did not. So who will silence the critics, rejuvenate their career and cement their place in North's best 21 in 2015?

    Myth Exposed: Our Depth

    At the commencement of season 2013 many North fans, myself included, predicted that greater depth in the playing list would be one important factor in our rise up the ladder. This expectation was derived from the anticipated development of the younger members of the 2012 list and the potential...

    What gap(s), if any, do we need to fill in our playing list to win a flag?

    Post-draft euphoria has me feeling positive about the depth we now have in our squad. I see the current list maturing into a formidable team in the coming years - but what are the final pieces of the puzzle? Here's our senior list, named based on where they play today and in multiple...

    We need to beat Pies or Dockers to make the finals

    Carlton's massive win over Essendon has boosted their percentage and placed them 2 games short of North. They should beat Gold Coast and the Saints (who can no longer make it) and two losses would drive North's percentage below Caltank's. Freo are playing Richmond, Melbourne and us. Yikes!

    The Bailey Ladder Predictor enables you to predict results from the remainder of the season and produces a ladder after round 23 and a finals fixture. I've just had a go and see us finishing 7th and playing Essington in the first week of the finals (who finish ahead of us on percentage)...
