They should have just made the goal winning their second ever premiership within the next 5 years
They will change the narrative and add E memberships to there existing count, or use Twitter, Facebook etc,When the biggest club in the state doesn't have 100K fans I fail to see how the little brother will.
It's all well and good to set targets, but there's very little chance it actually happens.
You won't be able to purchase 12 games memberships soon, they will all be 3 game packages, but you can a bundle of 5 for the same price as the old 12 game one.
They can say what they want, but the reality is that their best two players are turning 33 this year and aside from Wines they have very little talent in the mid 20s bracket.Not if you talk to a Port fan, they think their list is set for a decade of domination. 'The kids are better than our older players' 'You're just jealous' etc
They're including womens and SANFL premierships in the 5.Is this an old quote - they just got the team pic wrong (port instead of Richmond) and it was actually Hardwick a few seasons back?
Without wanting to put too fine a point on it, I don't see port winning A flag in the next 5 years with Grey, Boak, Hartlett, Dixon, Motlop, Rockliff etc all getting very close to or hitting their 30's. Maybe we will be able to build a better side for the next flag from SA in the next 5 seasons? - we have certainly started to put the pieces in place and fingers crossed the kids we have drafted can all come on like we hope
Yup, they're in an awkward spot for a genuine premiership push at the moment. Their next generation looks very promising though, so at least they'll be able to rebuild on the fly when Boak and co. retire.They can say what they want, but the reality is that their best two players are turning 33 this year and aside from Wines they have very little talent in the mid 20s bracket.
The teams that go on to become a dynasty all have a core of super talented guys in their mid 20s whereas most of Port's talent sits in the 30+ bracket.
Neil Craig would be about the only person out there that would believe that you can build a 5 year dynasty around a core group of players who are aged 30+
Do we count AFLX, that would make it 3 in 5 years?Funny about the 5 years 3 premierships, had a friendly discussion with a mad Port supporter the other day,
when he mentioned that story, I replied with the Crows are closer to 3 in 5years than Port, when he quietened down, I mention the AFLW is in its 5th year. if the Crow wins the flag that 3 in Five years. It was fun watching him splutter. before saying that different.
I don't get it, unfortunately, we only have 1 spoon and yes we don't like it, but if I was a team with 3 spoons to their credit the last thing I would do is raise the question, of Spoon against a team with only 1.
They might be, but you have to be somewhat realistic about it.
If you look at the age breakdown of their list there's no way that they're winning three flags in five years.
Maybe if they said this back in 2014 when Grey, Boak, Ebert etc were all in their prime it would have been more realistic, but with 7 players 30 or older on their list this year if anything they'll be staring down the face of a major rebuild in 2 to 3 years.
S'funny I never mentioned achievability or dreamsDreams are nice, but in reality they are just dreams.
We could talk finals wins and who had more last decade?I don't get it, unfortunately, we only have 1 spoon and yes we don't like it, but if I was a team with 3 spoons to their credit the last thing I would do is raise the question, of Spoon against a team with only 1.
Personally, I rather talk about Finals Appearances.
But I guess you Port supporters are a different breed.
Its true - they have pet memberships. Maybe they will get to 100k memberships as power flogs can register each of their goldfish to become a member
