Play in a simulated football league - find great movies and TV shows - play Werewolf - play video games (try our Minecraft server) - argue about politics - listen to music - keep up with science news - play board games - just gasbag - discuss true crime - and so much more.
The lure of a premiershipWill never understand why Josh passed on us (TWICE)! Had the opportunity to be paid and treated like a superstar at his childhood club. I suppose loyalty to a plastic franchise, younger than the internet fad of ‘Planking’ was the truly wise choice. Didn’t even spot him on Grand Final Day.

While this has been happening, we inadvertently did quite well at procuring lesser know players who turned out to be gems, this was definitely a bonus so perhaps we are onto something. Perhaps our future targets should be the anderson, higgins, polec type who are decent but could take a few extra steps further and we the club for them to do so. It's very rare that you can get ready made superstars unless there are special circumstances. All of the superstar who moved in recent time have special circumstances. Judd moved due to drug culture at WC, Franklin achieved all and needs big cash bonus that he can never get at hawthorn, Dangerfield wanted to go back to family and the same goes to Tim Kelly.loyalty and potential success with his mates > money
He made the right decision.
The whole romantic "barracked for North as a kid thing" that we value as supporters is very different for players/family once they get into a club environment. We had a good crack at getting superstar players and failed - at least our club was proactive and tried things.
No you didn't. You said he'd fall off a unicycle while in quarantine and suffer skin failure.In 2017 I remember saying that taking short term money over north’s long term offer is riskier considering the possibility some campaigner fu**s a pangolin that creates a worldwide pandemic that cripples the financial viability of the league.
I don’t usually drop in ‘i told you so’...
