In the '97 PF, three Saints players gangtackled Corey into the ground, during the first quarter. Corey's shoulder was badly injured in that incident, and just like that, our chances for a flag in '97 were gone.

True enough. We had, also, lost Schwass and Archer already too, so we were well and truly up against it anyway. Corey was the final straw. However, if Carey had be there all season, I’d argue we would have finished Top 2. We would have had a free week before the Preliminary final. Chances are, Schwass, Archer and Corey situation doesn’t transpire. However, if my aunt had proverbials, she’d be my uncle.

Must have been sitting right near you. Happened right in front of me as well. Absolutely went mental at the Saints players involved but it was the gloating Saints supporters around me that assured I've never had sympathy for them since. That year was just never meant to be.

AFL 2022 news: David Noble and Jack Ziebell among those at North Melbourne sidelined by Covid​

Like many clubs, North Melbourne was hit hard by Covid on its return to pre-season training. More than 10 names have been sidelined - two of them big ones.

North Melbourne’s return to pre-season training for 2022 was hampered by the absence of senior coach David Noble, skipper Jack Ziebell and up to nine players, who were forced into isolation due to the state’s Omicron wave.
More than 100 players from all clubs across the AFL men’s competition have been sidelined for at least seven days after contracting Covid or being deemed close contacts.

The Kangaroos were last week forced to make some changes to their first full week of training for 2022, like many of their rivals.
North Melbourne expects the coach and the captain to return to the men’s program soon, as all clubs deal with losing players, coaches and staff for a period of time, due to the pandemic.
It is understood St Kilda and Essendon have also had their challenges across the past week, with Bombers captain Dyson Heppell saying it was an on going issue for clubs to deal with.,
Two AFLW games were cancelled this week, and one refixtured, after Covid protocols wreaked havoc at Brisbane and the Western Bulldogs.
It meant the Dogs-Geelong game had to be cancelled along with Brisbane’s clash with Carlton.
Instead, the Cats took on the Blues on Saturday night.

Reason why hesitant Roo hasn’t received second jab

North Melbourne midfielder Jed Anderson is yet to return to pre-season because he has received only one dose of the Covid vaccine.
As AFL clubs including the Kangaroos resumed training this week, Northern Territory-born Anderson remained in Darwin and was understood to be hesitant to have his second jab.
Players who had been allowed to train interstate over Christmas needed to be double vaccinated by the weekend to reintegrate with their clubs.
The Kangaroos had expected Anderson, who had his first shot in mid-December, to have his second dose before the deadline.
Ankle and calf injuries restricted [PLAYERCARD]Jed Anderson[/PLAYERCARD] to just seven games with the Kangaroos last season.

Ankle and calf injuries restricted Jed Anderson to just seven games with the Kangaroos last season.
Now they are working with him in the hope the 27-year-old will have his next jab and be able to come back to Arden St.
In a statement provided to News Corp, the Kangaroos said Anderson had not received his second vaccination dose “due to a poor reaction to his first”.
“We will continue to work with Jed on next steps but in the short term he will remain in Darwin, where he will complete his training program,” the statement said.
“Our club fully supports the AFL’s vaccination policy and in the interests of community health and safety, we urge everyone to receive their full course of vaccinations and booster shots.
“The club will not be making any further statement at this time.”
North Melbourne had about a dozen players missing from training on Monday.

Which teams were the Gorillas, the Vicky’s and the Mexicans?
Vicky's? Is that an autocorrect of Cocky's?

Carlton were briefly, unofficially the Cockatoos. https://www.blueseum.org/tiki-index.php?page=Other+Club+Nicknames

Not sure what the Mexican reference is. *Essendon were still the Same Old or Dons in the '30s. Weren't Bombers until the '40s. Might be a reference to "Don" being a Spanish title?

Fitzroy were the Gorillas. Looks like North & Hawthorn are missing from the cartoon. Too hard to figure out how to incorporate shin bones, mayblooms or mustard pots in the cartoon?
