There is nothing exciting about facing North anymore. No Brad Scott week, no decent team to ensure a good contest. Just Snake Baker putting up a lone stand.

Sad.
To be fair that is 25% of Norf’s fan base. Puts us to shame given we are only a drop in the ocean of the Eagles fan base.

Do you understand how this actually works?

You need to read up on the NMFC constitution to understand this better.

The clubs historical identity can not in any way be altered without the overwhelming approval of the club members:

Remember this next time you read some ridiculous AFL board "Norf will be relocated by the AFL to XXXXX" type crap. They simply don't have the power to do it.

Again, the members of the NMFC control the NMFC. It's day to day running is controlled by a board elected by those members and no one else.
Agreed. They can’t force you to relocate but they can cut you from the comp.

No, they can't technically "cut" any club from the comp, but a club can become financially compromised to the point where it would withdraw from the AFL and hand back it's licence.However, this has no impact on the NMFC as an independent entity.

There is a lot of bad rubbish that has been allowed to permeate through generic supporter discussion over the years, to the point where the uninformed take it as gospel. If in the very extreme event that the club became financially compromised to this extent, there's a consensus that it would just continuing playing in a local comp as the NMFC, at Arden Street, with it's blue & white stripes, club song, VFL/AFL premiership cups, etc, and history intact.

We'll never sell out like South Melbourne, or get compromised like Fitzroy. This is why our constitution has been framed in such a manner.

However, presently we have not taken up any AFL slush funds like some other clubs and we are as solvent as we have been in decades, so get used to us.

Correct me if I am wrong but North are the only club in Victoria who don't get pokie revenue.

Why isn't Brander playing? I swear to god the match committe and Simo sometimes just dont get it. This is the perfect game to play him against a weaker team, and they drop him, and for who Bailey Williams/Foley? He's the 13th pick in a very strong draft, i don't care if he's playing on a wing, shooting guard, power forward, center just play the guy ffs.

I also agree he should be playing as a forward and be aiming to take Kennedys role once done
