    It's not preseason just yet, but apparently the offseason is a pre-preseason for our players this year:

    The Worsfold is in town and he's starting to put his stamp on things.

    See Matthew Lloyd & Tim Watson. That's how you do it. You don't cancel Mad Monday. You don't berate your team that's been through 12 kinds of hell.
    You do this. This is what I want to hear.

    Considering he did his hamstring in the VFL elimination final against Footscray, I'd say only light rehab at the moment.

    I hope Woosha makes them all go to the GF and then tells them to leave a 3/4 time!

    2018 slogan should be:

    "Smashing through every barrier"

    We need something more uplifting after years of "Let's all get together and be friends and cuddly"

    I feel like this belongs in a membership thread, but what are the current slogans of the other clubs?

    I think Adelaide is "We Fly As One"... but I forget all the others :p

    I'm genuinely terrified that we will see pics of Francis looking huge.

    I'd be more terrified if there weren't any though. :(

    If you mean fat-huge, that is also my fear. Langford and Laverde I can see putting in work, but I fear Francis goes back to mum and dad's and gets hooked in to mum's cooking (no offence Francis's mum), and it's all over red rover.

    I can't wait to be driving around <insert suburb here> and seeing <insert player here> at the park, actively involved in improving their goal kicking accuracy by kicking at trees, drone flyers, little kids, or I don't care what.

    Just like Sheeds made them watch the '99' GF between North and Carlton and then the rest is history.
