    Not sure Jeffs factored in the zombie apocalypse in 2036. Otherwise seems reasonable.

    Interesting. Was just starting to get my head around the Brad Scott 'we just want to be competitive'. Now this! Head explode.

    He wasn't too far off with his five 2 fifty plan in 2007. Think it ended up being six 2 sixty and then eight 4 seventy.

    A back to back each decade with a few loners thrown in. Seems a fair vision.
    Confident Geelong and Sydney would have similar visions just not public.

    If your club does not have a long term vision of continued success it probably explains why they have not had any for a long time if at all.

    Dingley? The swamp won't have the cauldron training environment that was crucial for the flukepeat.

    Why not hey, aim for the top. It's getting cold down here at North where they are happy having a corporate spruiker as head coach. At least your corporate spruiker isn't in charge of the list and selections.

    If we do win another 2 within the next 5 years then Cyril could potentially be a 6-time premiership player :D

    Better that than the whole Essendon media propaganda (AFL) sanctioned crap we currently have to endure.

    By the way it wasn't a "supplements" scandal, it was s drug scandal. Your anti Hawthorn rants are getting tiresome Lance, time to get a life chief

    Essendon win a few flags during the zombie apocalypse. Dankenstein leads them to victory

    Junior Junior Rioli then rescues the world and wins yet another Rioli family Norm Smith

    Everyone from the club is fired including me if Hawthorn don’t get a flag next year?

    That’s so crazy it might work

    Pure Hawthorn exceptionalism. It's always good to see it, but when it comes from inside the club, well, it's even better

    They’ll get a three-peat plus a shitty single premiership every decade so they’ll have way more than 20.
