    Well, the season is almost upon us.
    There is one other important factor that will keep our interest this season and that is how well Port is performing. Every injury, suspensions, any whiff of a scandal we will be death-riding.
    Season 2017 will be interesting on many fronts for all of us.

    Booo Port.:D

    It would be lovely if we can get both picks in before a bid comes for Ballenden.
    Port for the spoon, would be even more lovely.

    Apparantly the Port pick can't be used for academy bidding. Still unsure of how this works.

    We have got Vossy on the inside to sabotage their season. Great long term planning there.

    Yep. And they will also tell you how good Hinkley is as a coach.

    If we have a poor season this thread has the potential to save it.

    Mr Voss we ask you to go back once more into the breach, this time for one last hurrah.

    If Hinkley got the axe and they put Voss in as Senior Coach for the rest of the year ... would we have to start barracking for honourable losses for Port?

    Can't wait to see Port fail epically. They obviously had tickets when they made the trade - makes it so much sweeter when they finish bottom 3.

    I was lucky enough to get to 2003 but still feel the pain of 2004, boo Port.

    We should also, as always, be death riding the Pies as we have their 3rd rounder I think.

    Not sure it holds the same appeal as a top five pick. :)

    irel I hope that I won't have to attach a backfire tag to this thread come Oct :$

    If Port do well you've set yourself up to be blamed.

    True, but watching the Pies lose when we get a benefit will make 2017 more enjoyable

    Oops, I should have paid homage to the reverse psychology divinity and named the thread "Succour Port";)

    He did a good job of sabotaging the lions so he's got form!
