    Nah its just the vic-centric media sinking the boot in again, making up garbage.

    McGovern story made up. Betts story just ridiculous.

    Now whether Sloane and Lynch leave, theres a concern.

    This sensationalist reporting is killing my interest in following the game outside of the team I support.

    Absolute shit.

    This is an example of how the 24 hour news cycle and Hutchy's Crocmedia monopoly is detrimental to fans and clubs.

    It's a pretty slow news week in footy, so McClure has probably been fed some juicy made up gossip from his mate Kane Cornes and has decided to run with it, which will give SEN something to talk about all day today and then little Kane will sink the boot in further tonight.

    I hop Adelaide, their admin, Betts and McGovern deny this and McClure and everybody involved in this slow news week assassination of Adelaide (the same group who decided Essendon was their target of the week about a month ago) is made to look like a complete fool.

    They’ve tried to run the club like a military school and it’s backfired spectacularly.

    Players don’t enjoy playing there and I expect 4-5 players in contract wanting a trade cone years end excluding Rory who is gone.

    "Adz" the collingwood supporter....yeah probably not going to take your word on matters.
    Seem like a real talk back radio rambling kinda guy.

    If you seriously think that all these grown men are going to leave their job because of a camp...you're probably a customer of bomber thompson.

    Clubs the quality of Adelaide usually respond on field when the blow torch is applied...

    so back off everyone as they play the Hawks this weekend and a loss (in what is an "8 point" game) would just about end our finals aspirations.

    Another day, another anti-Crows post from Adz. Talk about obsessed.

    For what it's worth, an objective observer indeed would say we are in crisis. The unaccountable boys club approach to running this footy club has caught up with us. The wrong people, in the wrong roles, pulling the wrong strings, and not getting sacked. Players playing the wrong way (soft and half-hearted) and not getting dropped. Players in the twos toiling away and losing motivation, knowing they'll never get a game no matter how well they play compared to the chosen gold pass holders.

    Last year we made a grand final despite similar question marks. Now those players are getting older, many of our best are injured or playing injured, and they are all mentally shot.

    The club is diseased and needs more than a few parts amputated.

    They aren’t the first and not will they be the last side to have a season decimated by injuries. These other things are just points on top of that. One injury has turned into about 20 this season. The positive is they will get the easier draw in 2019.

    Adelaide have never really had a great off-field culture, God help the AFL if they ever do.

    No idea why Brett Burton has a job either.

    Might be able to make a new home for both the McGovern brothers.

    Since the Tippett cash back bonanza has just been made available to our cap.

    Would that be the same Adz who had concrete inside mail that Paddy Ryder would be forced to resign within days of the nightclub non-incident last year?

    Why do you refuse to entertain the idea that Betts has been negatively affected by the camp? Explain how that concept is "ridiculous."

    The boys club issue is rife in SA as a state, not just at the biggest footy club in town.

    Jobs and opportunities in this town are handed out based on what school you went too & how many of the cool kids or their parents you knew there.

    Recruitment is one of the most corrupt industries going around, because as always the $ is king.

    Honestly I can't see Adelaide as an entity continuing to exist beyond next Tuesday...about lunchtime. Their unknown and unsubstantiated situation is just untenable.
