Does that include playing golf on his work days as "checked out"
I've read a few comments by a couple of people alluding to that this year, and that it might not have been necessarily been a completely new thing :that once Joyce was GM Brad had a lot more leeway to do whatever he wanted, because Joyce had zero balls, and his attendance/performance dropped.

Much truth to it?

Yes, that Sydney game is currently standing between us and finals unfortunately, and we will likely miss out by 1 game.
I can cop that tbh. Next year is looking really bright already due to the changes since Brad's axings. Will only get better once we have restocked off field, with a chance on field as well now that our form has really changed.

It's odd, the positive energy I had for this year, up until maj's incident, is actually back already for next year. As long as we keep playing like warriors for the rest of the year I really can't imagine myself being too upset about a few more losses and missing out on finals.

I don't think I can take one word of that Brad Scott article at face value
On the bright side, I’ve never seen the sports pages of a newspaper so full on North Melbourne-related stuff! Elsewhere, Boomer is looking well too!

I see we’re messing up the Herald Sun tipping system. Despite the “experts” strongly leaning in our direction, we’ve managed to get the nod from the Kiss of Death. The great unwashed have plumped for Essendon.

Nice. We're both favourites and underdogs.

especially if you call in sick you tend to stay home to get better

  • ‘Experts’ all tipping North to win comfortably
  • Odds have come down, although still even at $1.90
  • Public tipping shows 70% Essendon
  • Herald Sun kiss of death has North
I wouldn’t be surprised if the odds come down to $1.50 before the bounce.
