Bit bored tonight, read the first few pages of the first Clarko thread started in April last year. Shows you how scarred we've been over the journey!

I haven’t gone back to read it. My recollection of the events is we really never got to celebrate al clarko coming to coach us.

What should have been a time of hope turned into a freakin nightmare.

I hope we get to see and hear a bit this coming preseason.

We need it amd Blardy deserve it .

Yeah a 1993 like season other than the granny winner would be dandy

Nah shove it up the arse of some of them there Hawf supporter freaks. Ya know when we win one it will be 100% put down to “ priority picks”.

As certain as death and taxes

And fair enough from them too.

One of them Hawfie weirdos stated today that it’s not the same, they only had two PP’s……picks 2 and 3 mind you, but not as many as us…..

Yeah the collective overreaction has been a disgrace and I'm all in on the "eff everyone else train"

Lot of the weasel coach's couldn't back it up when they got called on it.

Barrett must have been spurned again because his carry on was back to his old ways and then some.

Eat a collective bag of you know what and all that.


Do you have a link to it ?

Here you go good sir.

I got kicked off the hypotheticals board today (twice) for having the temerity to challenge the west cost whingers about our assistance deals - point out to them that their 2006 premiership owed a bit to Chris Judd (priority pick 3 in 2001) and luke shuey and jack darling (both priority picks), they go running off to mummy

Also traded Judd for Kennedy, and no Kennedy- no '18 flag. So without "handouts" they'd have a flag drought reaching back just shy of 30 years. Musn't mention that though, because it hurts their feelings. 🤫

spot on, and it requires ignorance of their own club history - I was seriously told Judd was a standard draft selection at 3 because they finished third last.

I reckon Geelong is the only premiership side of the last 15 years to win a flag without priority picks…I don’t count Sydney because they get academy players which is similar to PP’s.

Of course, they had a lot of players taking "unders" over that period.

Yes although the Cat certainly had an amazing run with FS.

Sydney need the academy they’ve only be in Sydney for 40 years

Good. That will help stop any other clubs from ever getting them again - which is as it should be. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to take them and I'll take more, I give zero shits when the AFL gifts picks to random clubs, gifts NGA's, zones and commercial draws.

Yes, not every leg up a club gets is tied to PPs.

A questionable salary cap and a govt funded money making machine certainly helps.

Micky, being under our salary cap in the 90s was definitely in the ‘ nice to have category’

More of a guide line one could say
