We also have to demonstrate endless promotion of it, put on a show and justify its charitable merits each year.As long as they keep it one opponent.
Why are WE the only club that gets its blockbuster screwed around with like this?
We should play them twice every year. Feel like we've had a good rivalry going over the past decade, a lot of close matches with a genuine animosity. Both small clubs in the same general area of Melbourne. Now they've got a second flag and a list with a genuine shot at a third they're on their way to being spoken about in the same breath as us too. The AFL won't realise this but they've got a great opportunity to build two crowd-drawing fixtures that will help even up the competition in terms of stadium revenue and media attention. Their next great idea will probably be a Carlton vs Collingwood permanent round 2 fixture celebrating the autumn solstice.Tbh I'd prefer playing the Dogs early
I know it didn't work the first time but I still think this could work: bash Bont.By this stage of the season, if we start well v Saints and Brisbane, a good performance will be extremely valuable to the club for recruiting too, I want to see us establish "our" brand of footy right from the get go, and bring it consistently, anywhere, anytime, v anyone, go Roo's
I know what you mean, but my mail is that since the *peptide *pushers got involved out there at *essendon, several of those involved, either no longer have, or now have severely malformed appendages. So sad.Wasn't it Jay Clark just a day or two ago saying it was North Vs Essendon? Dick.
Before it then falls apart after 2 years with Dogs v Sts and no one showing up or donating to the GFA.Just lock this in as a repeat fixture.
Although I am slightly cynical after Ballarat. I could also see them having it as North vs Dogs for 3 years and then ousting us.
I've given up on Juve, their heads to far up their a**ses. To interested in buying foreigners instead of concentrating on their own.On a side note, mate, how can you be supporting Juve and Torino at the same time? Isn't it like supporting North and Essendon?
