We aren't Victorian, we aren't in a state the AFL wants to try and one up Rugby (NSW / QLD). We aren't a financial powerhouse like West Coast. We and Freo get the dregs. Adelaide only get more than us by virtue of they get more fans / money in for the AFL in this state.Let's face it, we are nobodies in the AFL.
If we don't actually sh*t the bed this chance to go clear top club in this state, Adelaide will quickly find out what life is like for clubs when you don't even get the 2nd rate cuts and just get an already half chewed bone. Some of those old boys thinking they are 'at the table with the big boys' are going to be shocked that they've been laughed at behind their backs from the start.
