I feel like the 'size' of the club being a factor in FA is often overrated by fans.Adelaide will have the advantage of any high class SA player that wants to go home they are a shot to land.
North would always be lower down the list of higher class players destinies if they are wanting to return to VIC.
If we're talking about the absolute stars of the comp, clearly opportunity is not a factor.
To me it comes down to location, money and opportunity to win.
North has been a middling team for the best part of two decades. If the club can get a good group of kids together and show scope to win, I think they can buck this trend.
Contrary to popular opinon, I actually think the Dusty/Gaff/Kelly situations prove this to some degree, certainly in Dusty's situation he has publicly stated he was close to coming to North, despite the club finishing 15th that season.
