    Play Nice Which club has the biggest supporter base? Collingwood, Richmond or West Coast?

    Can get any club membership, or a bucket of chips at the footy for the same price ;)

    Does Geelong need to implement a youth policy?

    No decent father-sons for a long, long time... For all the decent, David Clarke Jnr, Tim Callan and Marc Woolnough didn't work out at all Scarlett and Ablett were absolutely elite Hawkins has been very good Mark Blake and Nathan Ablett were only just there. Nathan had talent but wasted, and...

    Does Geelong need to implement a youth policy?

    Some points are valid, but the best Falcons talent is never hidden. Luke Hodge and Jonathan Brown would have been really, really handy to have at Geelong We don't necessarily have a set advantage there. Scouting is too advanced to get too many diamonds in the rough Our geographic location is...

    Does Geelong need to implement a youth policy?

    Being an 'elite' team means winning premierships. Making finals is merely qualifying and if we're THAT good, as the club seemingly believes it is, the standard is winning Grand Finals. That's it Making the finals is merely a participation award. With the number of chances Geelong has had, the...

    Player Watch Pendlebury............. what does footy lose when Pendles retires?

    Pendlebury has been a fair (in terms of sportsmanship), dedicated and very reliable player over a very long period However, he's also incredibly nondescript - devoid of personality or even expression. If he was a spice, he'd be powdered bleach. I would love to have him in the team at his best...

    Will the Tim Kelly trade go down as one of the worst ever ?

    The fact that the Judd trade is even discussed here shows that somebody is a fool. Judd was great for Carlton. Carlton lifted with him around West Coast also did fine without him. I see it as win-win Judd wanted to leave West Coast. Carlton was happy to take him. He was one of the best at the...

    Does Geelong need to implement a youth policy?

    Because they aren't a contender now. The Selwood-Dangerfield combination is absolutely inferior to other midfield combinations. The forward line is ageing rapidly, and the team's depth is questionable Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater, but we need more quality players in the 21-26 age...

    Discussion What's the best your clubs jumper has ever looked Since 2000?

    I think that particular North Melbourne logo was weak. Too ill-defined to be effective The concept was decent though as a clash

    Discussion What's the best your clubs jumper has ever looked Since 2000?

    Ford logo was lightened in 2004 The Slazenger marking was blue on white in 06 and 07 (from memory) In 04 and 05, was white writing on a blue background - the bottom of the collar was a big chunky thing Worst jumpers were early ISC. Looked like aprons. Crap design I still wear my 2004 jumper...

    I know people take an interest in the sexual lives of others, but really, who cares if Darcy Moore is gay? (I wouldn't know whether he is or isn't, and I don't care) The innuendo actually isn't half as interesting as people think, unless you're a Woman's Day reader...

    Opinion Best and worst moments as a cats supporter

    In the second quarter, two of his goals playing on Grinter were pretty special ;) The one-handed mark, where Grinter just had nothing to say The second one where he picked up the loose ball, took a bounch, and kicked through a low goal Never tire of watching that match. It was a better match...

    Motlop wanted more money and went to Port (good - he was spasmodic and not worth the dough), and Menzel wanted a two-year contract when Geelong only offered one (Geelong kept him on the list while we went through his numerous knee ops), so I think this was justified Chapman is the only one that...
