    I actually bought a ball while i was there and brought it back with me. I tried explaining to my friends what it was and how to kick it, but most of them just started throwing it around like in American Football...haha

    That Fire walking video....:tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy: Who would actually think that was a good idea???

    If yours is the minority of the AFC supporters views and we continue to support them as a sponsor do you leave it at that, democracy has won?
    more people want them than don't? Does that view stop and "move on" or do you recruit more people and change their thought process to get more followers until the shift of supporters has outweighed that view and AFC needs to change?

    Clearly depends on your view :)
    Hopefully it's not too sinister!

    I wasn't commenting on that in isolation, but public opinion evolves, so surely we don't vote once and that becomes the end of the matter. Obviously, the alternate view needs to accept the voice of the people at the time, but that doesn't mean that they can't continue to prosecute their views. The Democrat supporters haven't exactly just shut up shop and started to focus on the next election.

    I know and I agree.
    Society seems to be moving to a level where anything and everything has to be accepted and catered for.

    Not sure if it's been said before or if this is thread worthy but I was having a chat with a port supporter and he made a valid point (surprising I know).

    Say Tex is captain for another 5 years, who do we see as the next leaders?
    I could only name Lever comfortably. There's a massive gap imo with who our future leaders are and if they're capable of leading our club the way Roo, Goodwin, McLeod, VB, Tex, Sloane etc have done in the past and are doing now.
    It's too early to suggest Doedee, Gallucci are capable and I don't see Laird, Smith, Brown or CC as the leadership type.

    Thought?

    If Tex was to drop off. Sloane initially. Lever, Probably wouldn't say Talia only because I recon a midfielder would be prefered.
    That should see us through about 4/5 years.

    I presume you mean the leadership group and not just the captaincy. Sloane and Talia will be leaders for a while, Lynch may become part of the group with Vb gone and Thommo in the twilight of his career. I actually think Laird could be another, but like you said it's too hard to tell with the younger guys. Wait and see how they go I guess, I don't really see it issue right now tbh.

    Today it would be Tex Sloane, Talia, Betts, Jacobs,
    In 5 years it may be, Talia, Lever, Hampton, Matt and Brad Crouch, Doedee, Gallucci, Poholke
    The Crows currently have no shortages of potential leaders. both now and for the future.

    I get the feeling that Cameron may develop into a Betts style leader. I think he's grown immeasurably as a person in his few years at the club. I think Knight could be a future leader going forward.

    Lever as captain seems almost a lock if he sticks around. Gallucci was a co-captain of his TAC Cup side, so he could probably develop into one in time.

    I remember reading that the problem wasn't with what they tried to do, the problem was that the fire was incorrectly built and that's why NS got burnt.
    People have walked over hot coals for yonks. There's even an adage about it.

    Go back 5 years, did Tex seem a future captain. With him, Sloane and Talia at their peak, it's easy to not see what's developing underneath. I wouldn't have thought it would be a concern just yet.

    Did most people pick Tex as a future captain even 12 months before he was appointed?
