I genuinely think north tried to support JHF but JHF didn’t want it.

At any rate I’m coming around to blaming noble for this situation. It might have been great if JHF gave it a shot with Clarko and the overhaul of the off field staff but at any rate he’s gone and the bridge is burned.

Cornes framing it as north giving up on him is pretty s**t though.

Yeah but it's Kane Cornes, what do you expect?

Its not as is Port aside from 2004, have been going great guns since they entered the comp in 1997.

We exist to win premierships ? Oh that's rich.
It was all right when you were a big fish in a small pond, but now that you have entered the ocean, you have devolved from a Piranha to a gold fish :)
That last sentence is like you’re talking to a mirror.

He is on the training track from what i've seen, moving super free and probably gained a yard which is hardly surprising considering the leg issue he was carrying.
I feel sorry for North supporters as their medical team failed Jason and North, as well as he played early, never got to witness him unrestricted.
He's going to be scary good once he gets full confidence back.

OK so success=training the house down. Lots of success around this time of year.

Driving without a license is against club policy too, surely?
Not disputing that. TT has his issues and I'm sure North would be reading the riot act to him. But I'm just trying to understand what Cornes is attemtping to compare here. Is he saying TT has received preferential treatment over JHF? I'm sure if we were in the middle of the season and the coach was questioned on the events, he may remark on it. May be dropped to the 2nds (it's not as if TT wasn't dropped from the senior side last season).

So, I'm just wondering why he relates TT's behavior to JHF's.

Sure, the club wasn't great last year. But they acknowledged that and have made significant changes including grabbing arguably the best coach in the game over the past 20 years. A coach we all know wants to win and will be more than simply a coach for the club.

That's not true. We only give s s**t about our own jumper, and don't think you should be trying to wear it.

To be fair, it's only the colours Port want to wear a couple of times a season (which is fair enough really)

Massive difference between the Pies stripes and the Port Prison Bars.

I side with Port Adelaide on this issue tbh.

I dont recall discussing success, neither did the post I responded to so im not sure why you are.
He's showing positive signs on the training track like many are all around the comp, not a bad start for a kid who just had both legs opened up.

JHF will be a complete gun. I do sympathise with North's supporter. It's a bitter pill to take. It's like those American movies where the plain nerd asks the hottest girl to the Prom, but she ends up dumping him for the hotter guy. Unlike those movies there isn't a happy ending for the unloved nerd though..

Brisbane says hi

Also, pretty hard to have Carlton be considered a rival when they still haven't won a game at Adelaide Oval.... How humiliating...
i dont think any brisbane supporters or the club itself consider port adelaide a rival

I get the feeling people not from Victoria think Victorians care a whole lot more about what they're doing than Victorians actually do.

Collingwood has a much bigger reach outside their home state than any of the WA / SA clubs. Sydney (being ex South Melbourne) might be the only non-VIC club with meaningful support outside their home state, meanwhile Essendon, Collingwood and Carlton all have good support outside of Victoria.

Congratulations on existing before the younger clubs

Massive achievement

Reckon thers been polls on your bigfooty board that rank Port second behind Collingwood as your biggest rival. Only team to beat you in a GF might be the reason. It's not a biggy but it's definitely there and there are quite a few Brisbane supporters that feel this way.

Speak for yourself, plenty disagree. Anyone who isn't 15yo would remember.

Port and Brisbane had a great history for a decade or more.
Late 90's, 2 draws and a 2 point margin in first 3 games, Stuart Dew screwing up a kick out with 15 seconds to play.
Early 00's, 2 teams undisputably at the top of the AFL, played some sensational H&A games, finished 6-6 through 2001-4 I think, a couple of intense finals at the Gabba, only Port Adelaide screwing up a couple of finals prevented a GF dynasty between the two.
Late 00's, waning a bit as both teams came off their high point, but I recall a couple of great Brisbane comebacks against us, in the order of 8-10 goals, one in the pouring rain
