    Past #18: Wayne Carey - The king. The best there ever was.

    Surprised we don’t have a thread for our greatest player. Watching SAS at the moment and it’s been interesting hearing in detail some of issues ect. It’s good to hear that he recognises the wrong that he has done in his life and it seems as though he is far more grounded and humble.

    Review Overlooked - The Unlucky Ones

    Every year a number of talented players get overlooked at the AFL draft and rookie draft. With only a relatively small number of players taken (especially in the rookie draft), this thread identifies and discusses those who were over-looked. Luckily for these players there may be other...

    Analysis The Unlucky Ones

    This is a discussion thread about those who were unlucky not to get drafted this year. Every year there is a number of heart break stories as to those who didn’t make the cut. Being a relatively deep draft pool it seems there is more of these stories than normal. There is however the chance...

    Prediction The Mason Wood 2019 Goal Kicking Thread.

    Huge year for Mason in terms of his development. Will he breakout? Will he stay on the park? Will he make CHF his own. Predict how many goals and behinds Mason will kick in 2019. I’ll put everyone predictions in the OP and update each week with his scoring. Digby Morrell - 84.11 Groin Guru -...

    Certified Legendary Thread Giantroo - A KING amongst Men (Help Crowdfund a new Mac for GR!)

    A celebration thread for all things giantroo. We’ve known his work onBF has been legendary for a long time... but this bloke just got Simpkin off a 2 week suspension with his frame by frame footage! That is Epic! Cheers to you GR! Well played! P.S: If the media team is looking at this...

    Toast Wayne Schwass - A Silent War

    Feel like this deserves its own thread. Just listened to the first part of Wayne Schwass - A Silent War. Fantastic effort by Heath and the club. Really proud of the club and for Schwatta for getting this out there. It was a really good insight as to how someone at the peak of their powers can...

    Preview 2017 Rookie Draft

    pre-season and rookie draft on Monday. How many picks are we likely to use? Which kids/mature Agers are still available? Will we give Wags another crack? Personally hope we go with Bailey Banfield or Brett Bewley as mature agers. Don’t mind if Wags gets another 12 months to really give...

    Toast Werribee Football Club.

    Would just like to give some credit where it is due. Werribee and North have had an excellent alignment over the years. They had a bit of success playing finals and we've managed to develop a few players to the point where they've been drafted (i.e Ben Brown + Mick Barlow) From all I've heard...

    Prediction If we don't land a Kelly or Martin type...

    We are in for a long period (3-5 years) down the bottom end of the ladder. A big re-build is looking for this list. Going to be very interesting as to how this year plays out.

    Preview Changes/Preview Vs Geelong

    Out: Hansen, Thompson, Gibson, Simpkin In: Wright, Durdin, Clarke, Cunnington

    Recommitted Majak Daw [re-signed]

    Uncontracted. Shows flashes of brilliance then patches of utter junk. Not too many 196cm guys out there with his athleticism and raw talent. Hard to gauge if he is in North's future plans or not considering he hasn't been signed yet. Has publically stated that he wants to stay at North but...

    Opinion Crushed the Culture

    Watched the boys just walk off the ground. They were dis-heartened, emotional and spiritless. I am 100% convinced that the actions of the week have fractured the playing group. Tonight just re-enforced to me that Brad has lost the players, as if the last 12 weeks it wasn't obvious enough.It's...

    Opinion Time for a mini re-build

    The writing is well and truly on the wall now. We made two prelims had an awesome start to the year but when the push came on we couldn't grind out the required wins to make the top 4, injuries haven't helped but even with a full list I don't think we had the killer instinct to win the big...

    Roast Name a player that we have actually developed?

    Over the Scott tenure you could make arguments that we have developed Brown, Tarrant, Goldstein, McDonald, Cunnington and Ziebell. But that is really about where it ends. The latter three should really end up being consistent A-Graders considering where they were taken in the draft but I just...

    Analysis Lack of genuine midfield depth. No half back accumulators.

    This has been one of my biggest irritations over the past 12-18 months. We have very very limited midfield depth. We got found out last night for genuine midfielders once we lost Swallow and Cunnington to injury. We currently carry way too many flankers who can't play a role elsewhere. None of...

    Preview Changes Vs Hawks (wags/frog/Maj/faz for Tripod/W80/swallow/ben10) [clarke/Mountford/tippo emg]

    Moving on changes need to be made, excuses are a cop out in my opinion. Doesn't make up for a lack of effort and defensive application. Too many pretenders and we've been carrying to many blokes who don't compete. Out: Brown, Nahas, Dal (injured), Cunnington (injured) In: Daw, Garner, Dumont...

    Opinion Drinking too much of our own bathwater...

    Why the hell can't we bury the opposition? Way too often we take our foot off the pedal and let side back into the contest, last year it nearly cost us a spot in the finals when we dropped games like we did against Collingwood. If we keep the same thing up where we drop off in intensity it will...

    Which current rule frustrates you the most?

    I'm curious to see what rules/interpretations of rules piss you off the most? After watching a fair bit of footy over the first few rounds it's so noticeable that the umps are having a considerable influence on the game. There are a couple of things that are becoming more common that I'm...

    Unofficial Preview Rd 4 Changes and Preview Thread Vs Freo

    Out: Garner (injured hamstring) Thomas Swallow Atley In: Wood Nahas Dumont Mckenzie/Clarke/Mountford You can't have a game Like that and not have changes. Swallow needs to go get some touch in the VFL I've never seen someone miss so many tackles and fumble the football so much Thomas'...
