I'm old enough to remember last off season when the bed wetters were worried Nicks wouldn't tap Sloane on the shoulder and get the captaincy handed over.

How'd that turn out again? :think:

Pretty well, really didn't expect Nicks to sack Rory from captaincy. But they did try and run the 'handed over' rubbish. My money is still on Sloane not playing SANFL, Nicks rested him as sub for 2 games and then back into the middle. And protected his ego when dropping him. He may have a couple of complete rests, but unless he's returning from decent injury, it'll be AFL or sub or nothing, we won't see him anywhere else.

FYI:
Power’s written submission was lodged in recent days on the back of a league-wide meeting of club and AFL football bosses last week about the competitive balance review and pending overhaul of the draft system.
Port wants to join the VFL to be part of the premier second-tier football league in the country and eliminate any disadvantage for its developing players.
It is believed Port’s move has broad support across the league as part of a step towards a national second-tier competition involving all 18 AFL clubs. The Power’s formal application will prompt serious talks about the state league competitions, with the Crows, Dockers and Eagles all set to strongly consider following in Port’s footsteps.
It comes as the AFL looks set to introduce a more weighted fixture into the VFL for next season so there are less lopsided games between top and bottom sides, including the standalone clubs. There is significant support to create a national second-tier competition involving reserve sides from all 18 AFL clubs, but it remains unclear what that could mean for the future of the VFL and its standalone clubs Werribee, Williamstown, Port Melbourne, Frankston, Northern Bullants and Coburg.
Port Adelaide, which was founded in 1870 and joined the AFL in 1997, has a long and proud history in the SANFL, making a move to the VFL a difficult one for some of its South Australian supporters. But Port is adamant a move to the VFL is optimal for the AFL team’s development and performance.

Cool. And I bet the media getting this story has nothing to do with Koch trying to gain some credits with Tredrea nominating for the board.

You’re on to a good thing. Why change with Tredders. Koch and Ken 4 life.

A good move from Port, I think the second tier vfl is the way to go. Hope the wa clubs go the same way, what you don't want is for the Crows to be left behind on this one. Hopefully they have their fingers on the pulse with this and move in the same direction

You’d imagine this won’t really be a possibility for us until Thebby is complete, early 2026 is when the club is hoping it’s all finished but the way it’s been going so far it could very easily be delayed beyond that

Hopefully that article is true though and we start laying some groundwork for ourselves and that the SA and WA clubs push hard for a proper reserves comp where both the A and B teams can travel and verse the same opponents uniformly
