I just checked my North jumper which i got for my 11th birthday in mid '83 and the royal blue is no different to my son's current one.No doubt that's true, but what I'd really like to see is an actual jumper from 83, not a photograph, to confirm the colour difference.
Yes Woodson '84 was a shocker for us. We avoided the spoon by beating the Saints at Waverley in horrendous conditions without scoring a goal in the second half! Doubt that's happened too often in VFL/AFL history.WE PLUNGED in 1984.... second from bottom. Dench, Dempsey retired mid-season.. But I think our footy wasn't as bad compared to 2006.. sure, we had struggles in 1984 but at least we THUMPEd the reigning Premiers, Hawthorn in 1984.. by a whopping 71 points.. won 3 on the trot and got enough % to pip the pathetic Sainters to LAST.
Are you 50 years old? We must be close in age.I really enjoyed reading all this
Didn’t realise Doug wade was on our coaching panel
Denis has spent a fortune at hair salons on perms and blow waves
As a 14 year old, that finals series was devastating
To finish minor premiers and bow out like that was terrible

Agree. Belting the dogs & blues at Arden St was a joy.
