- AFL Club
- North Melbourne
- Other Teams
The other clubs influenced by the AFL and led by Richmond voted against it.Even though I am glad we survived as North Melbourne Kangaroos, I dont understand why North and Fitzroy were not able to merge.
Some crap about North becoming a super club and yet we played Brisbane in the prelim later that year.
We actually gave the AFL what they wanted when they dangled the $6M carrot, a merger and we did not have go to a member vote at the time like other clubs.
Still it would have been interesting if Primus and Mckernan ended up in the same team. Not sure if we could have picked up Jonathan Brown under the father son but Carey, Brown, McKernan and Primus would have gone alright.
