port were never in serious danger and weren't close to the nothingness of North. someone just brought this up the other day. North over the last 5 years makes our worst 5 years look like a dream. the money problems stemmed from a poor deal that the AFL was never going to let kill us, they let us break away from the crippling stadium deal of west lakes and find solutions which we did!
Port were far worse off field in 2011 than North are today.
Port were over $10m in debt in 2011 while North are debt free today.
Port were getting similar crowds in Adelaide in 2011 to what North are getting in Melbourne today.

this doesn't mean anything. everyone goes through debt. we got away from that deal. done.
 
Extremely positive in the early days, Port were a joke in 2011/12, yet the club had fantastic energy in 2013/14. He, like the coach has hung around way too long now though and they have both lost a significant portion of the member base.

We werent. We didnt even win the spoon

Port would of got the spoon in 2011 had gold coast not exist or port not won that final game in 2011 at Adelaide oval vs demons .

That game in a way was one of the most important points in your clubs history.

The future of AFL footy in SA wasn't in footy park but in Adelaide oval .

Port in 2012 got 5 wins and a draw from 22 games. Remarkably they didn't get bottom 4, they finished 14th
 
Cameron Ling mentioned on radio the other day how Port only won eight games in two years from 2011-2012, and how it puts two finals wins in the last nine years into perspective.
what perspective is that?

that because port sucked over 10 years ago they should appreciate that theyre mediocre today?

you would never hear this crap said to the supporters of big victorian clubs.
 
From the outside looking in, yes he has IMO.

Off field he got their house in order and attracted big sponsors to the club. Yes they rely on the AFL dividend but that is the reality for most clubs. Most people forget what a rabble they where before he arrived.

Kenny has his detractors but on field they have been very competitive, I know Port fans have high expectations but in all honesty, 2020 was probably their only real chance of getting a flag and it took a great Richmond side to knock them out of the prelim, if they won that they'd have won the flag.

Geelong and Sydney are the only clubs with a better win rate than Port since Hinkley arrived.
I know Hinkley hasn't won any silverware, but he deserves the chance to have a farewell in front of the Port faithful similar to what Simpson got to have yesterday.

He sure does, I might even make the trip interstate to give him the send off he deserves 🤩
