    Coach Alastair Clarkson - NMFC Senior Coach - Coaching & Football Discussion

    I 100% guarantee if it was David Nobel saying the same things around kids taking time the support around here would be far less. Anyway let’s hope they all work hard to get it together so that in a few years time press on hope and expectations actually transpires to the season proper.

    Coach Alastair Clarkson - NMFC Senior Coach - Coaching & Football Discussion

    Yep you can. But don’t sell false hope all preseason and then flip the script 5 games in. Be consistent in your messaging. We know we are bad. Just come clean and say it from the start. I still don’t understand how a club participating in a competition with equalisation measures like a salary...

    Coach Alastair Clarkson - NMFC Senior Coach - Coaching & Football Discussion

    The real question is why the change of attitude less than a quarter of the way through the season. It’s incredibly disappointing as a supporter to know we are really not expecting to win any games of footy internally as a club.

    List Mgmt. 2024 Trade & List Management Thread

    I would do it TAO but it would need to be a huge trade return. If he leaves as a free agent we would get a first round pick as compo. so it needs to be 2 highish first rounders. Thrown in the compo one and we have four first rounders. My view is until Harry and George are the main leaders and...

    remember when we traded away or future priority picks incase the AFL would take them back due to us outperforming 🤣

    Player Watch #29: Will Phillips - 20d/12 tackles in VFL vs Brisbane - returns to the team vs Hawthorn

    Exactly. Are we all here confident Will can replace Stephens 13 predominantly uncontested possessions. I think we all would answer yes to that. Scott can move to the wing to replace the outside run.

    List Mgmt. 2024 Trade & List Management Thread

    We are in desperate need of a big body mid. In an alternate world we would roll out JHF TT and Reid this weekend with LDU Powell and JY as the 2nd unit. Harry Colby and WAP as the 3rd unit if needed to pinch hit. Sadly we don’t have the first unit (never did in Reid’s case).

    Preview Changes v Hawthorn - Marvel Stadium, Sun 21 April 4:00pm

    I gave myself 24 hours before posting in this thread so I wouldn’t be emotional and instead be reasonable with changes expectations. Out: Lmac, Corr, Tucker (happy if the 3 of you just play out your contracts in the VFL, but please stay away from the kids we don’t want you influencing them)...

    Strategy The actual positive thread

    Going to be hard to make the top 4 from 0-5 but as long as we get a home elimination final I think we will go pretty deep.

    Player Watch #3: Harry Sheezel - 2023 AFL RS, AFLPA Best First Year Player, 2023 SBM, NMFC Best Young Player - signed thru 2030

    I would be out if not for Harry. I will keep tuning in and turning up as long as he is playing.

    Player Watch #36: Tyler Sellers

    Surely he gets another game. Of all the spuds we have gifted games too over the years he deserves one more chance.
  12. Ball Dont Lie

    Bye bye Clarkson

    Sorry but wouldn’t Larkey cancel out Tex. LDU is older than Rankine and JY would equal Keays. If we can’t compare ourselves to the Crows then just give up. The main difference I can see is the crows have the semblance of a game plan and work as a team.

    Bye bye Clarkson

    Out of curiosity who was the Crows senior core that lead to the crows to a win last night? Boy we make a lot of excuses

    Autopsy The started-before-half-time All Time Insipid #norfball performance v. the team down the highway who shall not be named

    I feel for Harry. He deserved better. I said in the preview thread we have already thrown in the towel at Round 5 and got shot down. It’s as clear as day. We have no interest in competing to win games of footy

    Can someone start the autopsy thread. I don’t know how to do it.

    If anyone ever puts LDU and Brownlow in the same sentence around here I will vomit

    We should ask to play in the VFL for the rest of the year

    Probs to Clarkson ant the coaching team. They managed to turn one of the only reliable blokes we had in Scott into an absolute spud

    Player Watch #44: Cameron Zurhaar - [AFL.com] NM offers 5yr deal - CZ interest from SYD/GC - CZ mgr says 'wants to see improvement' - out vs GEEL (calf)

    Given bull is such a confidence player I would def why we do t just start him the square every game to get him a few touches and feel for the game. We could move him forward after 5mins. Playing on our half forward line would be extremely hard and not conducive to getting into a grove.

    Game Day Rd 5: Pussies v North at the expanded Baked Potato State Government Handout Stadium.

    Would like for anyone over the age of 24 to exert manic pressure and intent. Anyone under 24 to show some glimpses of the skills and talent that got them selected as high picks. Would be nice to see the bones of a game style/plan but I think that’s asking too much

    Preview Changes v Geelong, Sun 14 April 1:00pm at VicGovFundedKardinia Park [Zurhaar (calf)/Shiels (GS)/KDaws (ankle)/Stevo OUT; Sellers/Big/Laz/Drury IN]

    We are already in full tank thrown in the towel mode. It’s round 5. Got to be the earliest surrender ever

    Or Windsor given we needed outside run. Far out it hurts thinking about it.

    Player Watch #9: Luke Davies-Uniacke [Part II] - signed end '25 - 2nd in '22 SBM

    Geez if the cards got dealt another way our current midfield would be LDU, JHF, TT, with Powell, WAP, Colby as the 2nd unit. I think if I do it right we also still have Harry. It’s George W we lose?

    Opinion Commentary & Media VII

    The boys and I went to gather round. Saw 5 games of footy live. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Adelaide CBD isn’t half bad and the people were very friendly. The Adelaide Oval itself and the precinct is first class. It wasn’t cheap but nothing is these days sadly. Special thanks to Jonnoo for the...

    As stupid as this thread is, it really should have been called Ciao Ciao Clarko. If we don’t have alliteration then we really have nothing.

    Opinion Is this rock bottom?

    Yes I have been for circa 35 odd years as are all my family.

    Opinion Is this rock bottom?

    Yeah we have. We have sold off 4 games a season to Tasmania to balance the books and luckily have a resilient and generous supporter base that keeps putting money into the club.
  28. Ball Dont Lie

    Opinion Is this rock bottom?

    Is it wrong of me to expect more from our club? I mean we seem to get it terribly wrong year after year. Not much we get right on field or off field these days.
