“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” and for better or worse these days the whole world will know about it.I didn't get into Aussie Rules to have all this gossipy nonsense thrust in my face. That's their problem, should be dealing with it in private.
The Age of Communication is a wonderful time to live in, but this part of it blows.
I know this is going to sound a bit like Loser Talk especially to oppo fans, but IMO in lieu of a threadbare "Trophy Room" at Moorabbin, there should be a "History Room".As Molly would say "Do yourself a favour and check this out." Arguably the best game ever played.

This would obviously include the 1966 premiership cup, as well as the various other cups like the Wizard Cups and McLelland (sp?) cups etc. But more importantly it would pay homage to our club's proudest moments in Aussie Rules history, which although haven't gained the number one spot, deserve to be remembered and celebrated.
Winmar's defiance is an obvious example, but the war of attrition against North in the 30s is another, our record breaking 19-game imperious winning streak in 2009 including the beauty against the Cats, that annoying year about 100 years ago where we won the GF and had to play the H&A leader for the premiership cup or something... I'm sure you folks could think of many more examples.
All the moments of Almost Glory that are just brushed away simply because we only got it 95% done. It's an uncomfortable notion, one that a lot of people might take as celebrating failure, but for me it would be a lot more rewarding as a visitor to the club than a tiny room with one cup in it.
I think our Maddie's match jumper is our best looking jumper & would have no issues if we took it on as a full time strip.We'll have to agree to disagree there. Good or bad, I don't like being limited by tradition. Anyway, I like the recent StK logo our marketing crew have created, variation on a theme. I think there's potential to be explored further, without reinventing the club identity.
Agree there Rors………..my gut feeling was that the trade could turn into a giant hand grenade if certain things went pear shaped.Hmmm. That live trade they did to get pick 19 looks even more ******* horrendous now
