So nothing confirmed, ta. Libs going well

On SM-G950F using BigFooty.com mobile app
He didn't front for recovery session in Freo - leadership group suspended him for a week according to another player source. Hammy tightness was bull5hit. Maybe the club should just tell it like it is.

He's gonna wake up one morning facing the wrong way, and wondering how he didn't get a free kick for too high.

That blatant high tackle on JHF straight in front of goal (he didn't duck - just winning the footy) was just a blatant miss by these idiot umpires - it nearly cost me a new TV.

Woeful. Incompetent. You name it.

i suppose its a good thing they acted quickly so he knows that sort of crap isnt on not matter how good a player you are. There are standards at the club that need to be met in that regard I would think.

There was one bit of play on the wing in the second where he collected a ball at full tilt off his ankles, steadied and nailed a 45-metre kick that dropped in between two defenders (think it was to Thomas). Just a complete freak of a footballer - he'd already be such a weapon in a good side.
This was unbelievable. But he made it look so easy the commentators didn't even register it. He's good for a couple of these moments a game. That will only grow. Going to be some player.

One thing is for certain.. if he did want to move clubs. Not one other team in the AFL would cheer as hard for one player like north does for JHF. Everytime he goes near the ball the celebrations are louder than a North goal being scored

Opposition supporters already giving him s**t.

Their fear is strong.

Yeah has one tosser behind me giving it to him every time he never hit a target.
Had to tell him to support his own team and us north fans will worry bout our own players.
Same idiot tried to call TT a dirty dog for the legal tackles that got penalised.

You meant perfectly executed tackles that were textbook.

Should be our away jumper
That would set a league wide precedent that I have absolutely no doubt would be followed by other clubs. I would love that. Instead of some kiddy-graphic-bullshit, we actually have an away guernsey with some story & meaning (for every bloody club).

Why have it for just the ‘one round.’ Eg. Black History Month in North America is just the one month. Many have asked for an even spread of more recognition & all year round - both for that celebration in the USA & here for this round.

Guernseys - Make it half & half. The ‘traditional’ home guernsey & an indigenous ‘away’ guernsey all season. Every season.
Still have a round specifically highlighting the indigenous parts of our game but via the guernsey recognise it weekly.

Holy s**t. Saw that live from the other side and turned around to some random fans just to get someone else to appreciate how bloody good a kick it was. Brilliant.
he didnt try to hack the cover of it as well, the trajectory was like a well controlled 3 wood. lovely pendulum kicking action. and all executed from looking up about 2 seconds earlier and assessing his options.

Living proof that the draft's where it's at for building sustained premiership success. Imagine picking up another blighter like him this year. Geez.
about this time last year there was a lot of commentry stating JHF was a favorite to go 1st, havnt really heard a lot of names bandied around for any real standout 1st rounders this year.
