We barely had a pot to piss in back then. I mean, look at the sponsor on the back of that jumper. The players were basically left to run on auto pilot.

Is this a self troll from Burtenshaw?

Not from sanfl juniors then? (SA players)
Sure they are all affiliated with SANFL clubs but school football takes precendence

Only 1 is from a State school and that happens to be a Footy Program school and the only one that competes with the Colleges. Henley High is the outlier.

but there's all that money being funnelled from afl generated revenue to sanfl clubs...

I genuinely don't know but would the level of development at schools be higher than what they get from their time with sanfl clubs? Private schools have demanded their kids prioritise school footy over club footy for decades (I remember Greg Anderson having to leave St Mick's and go to Woodville High so he could play league football for Port in the mid 80s) but that doesn't mean that most of the quality development is happening with the school team.
If so, then surely it's time to remove junior footy from the sanfl and allow them to focus on senior footy.

A few short weeks ago, Crows fans couldn't wait for the season to be over. Nicks should be sacked, the whole playing list should be delisted, and the entire board given their marching orders.

Now, after wins over 2 of the bottom 4 teams, and a 12th placed Carlton struggling desperately for relevance, they suddenly reckon they can walk on water, and will not only knock off last year's premiers this week, but the future is so bright, the fans need sunglasses.

Here's to a 2017 grand final replay this weekend.

I think his 12 years as an employee in the Crow's massive communications unit (2005 - 2017) is his defining lifetime achievement.
This is the same wet-end Crows employee that tweeted "charity starts at home" when Port were apparently gifted the first Adelaide Oval showdown. Just another cog in the conveyer belt of entitled boobs

Yet probably doesn’t see any ‘Charity’ in the crows having the most home games out of any non Queensland club?
