"There remain widespread concerns within the AFL industry about the stability of the landscape at the Dockers. "

Looks like wholesale changes under way, Belly may get a big broom out.

We are self-funded, St Kilda is $10 mill in debt.
Gold coast completely rooted, GWS have exceptional talent leaving every year.
Don't think we are that unstable, just not doing very well on field.
It's up to the mgt to explain to the Kelly's etc that we are playing yoof, and we expect to be in the 8 next year.

It's ridiculous to think of the dribble that is rolled out over our club considering there is a basket case called the Melbourne Demons copping very little in comparison. There are clubs in far worse positions that are not getting micro-managed by the media at the moment.

We have a better record against the current Top 8 than WCE do.

Perhaps the reason why Kelly has been reluctant to come to us is because in the past we didn't draft him despite (rumour from here) indicating we would (end rumour). The "lover spurned" scenario.

If you are a Melbourne journalist, however, you probs wouldn't have any of that back story.

In fact, only the Crows get less money from the AFL than us.

Interesting if we sign Lyon for another two years in the pre-season or do we wait until mid -season.

It seems Alcock wants to put the pressure on Lyon and Rosich to perform.
That’s good. Rosich will want to get it done in the preseason or in the early rounds imo, and so will Ross and his management but I’m glad if Alcock is being more patient.

Rosich’s contract ends at the end of the year he might not get an extension and Ross doesn’t have a manager, he manages himself.

That probably why we exist. To beat the top teams when they can't to help them stay in the top 4. :moustache:

Because that record doesn't help us one iota if we can't beat the bottom 4 teams and make the finals!
