What I find incredible is that they’re clearly being loaded up with this angle from someone inside Alberton.

Whateley: “you’re not the club that can win every year at this level, be realistic”

Rucci: “you idiots don’t understand the AFL’s equalisation policies which make it impossible to win every year like the Magpies days”

Kane: “they have ‘WE EXIST TO WIN PREMIERSHIPS’ up in the boardroom and everywhere you look down there, it’s like be realistic jeez lolol”

Dwayne: “they need to keep moving forward as the teal Power franchise which can’t perform as the ye olde traditional powerhouse in the SANFL”

Which is frightening really.

Because literally no-one within the fanbase who is critical of Hinkley is coming from a position of thinking every year should end with a premiership.

And to constantly load up media identities to denigrate the club’s very lifeblood - the members - with indoctrination that we’re now a tinpot organisation for whom progress, let alone success, is too hard, is beyond disgraceful.
Or maybe they’re all right and you’re wrong🤷🏻‍♂️

If Russell doesn't believe there's anyone else out there as good as ken Hinkley but thinks its the right decision to let him go if he misses finals that makes absolutely no sense at all? If he's that great Dwayne shouldn't we keep him even if we miss finals again? Lol what a idiot

They’re ‘right’ in assuming the supporter/member criticism of Port Adelaide’s chronic underperformance since 2015 stems from a belief the club should seriously be challenging for a flag every single year?

Maybe!

they aren't right, they are being paid to water down the PAFC
“We can’t win every year like in the SANFL silly, so keep paying your membership to watch Hinkley serve up a sixth year of the most futile dross imaginable!”

Oh tribey you are just being too demanding. We can't win every year so we shouldn't really bother. We are just lucky that the AFL let our little old club from Alberton even play in the big leagues. So shut up, be grateful, pay your membership and see you at the footy.

Remember the article Dwayno penned on the eve of the 2007 GF "Port don't lose Grand Finals, losing them is in Geelong's DNA" yadda yadda.

The guy has been reverse rogering us forever.
Looking back, bringing a defence missing Michael Wilson (achilles) and featuring a severely underdone Daryl Wakelin (rushed back from a torn hamstring) resulting in Troy Chaplin and Michael Pettigrew to be the defensive anchors really set the stage.

I've posted this same sentiment before. We are only in the AFL to make up the numbers for the media rights deal and that is the remit of our AFL appointed board.

The sooner the likes of you and I accept that we should be grateful that we are allowed to play with the big boys of the VFL and not expect to be competitive as well the sooner we'll be happy as "true Port Adelaide supporters" :(

If they want us to accept that I am going to go find another sport to follow. I can't accept that we don't want to win every damn year. Gaelic football looks fun.

Isn't every club's existence for the reason of winning premierships? I mean carn.
Well then those other clubs need to realise that they are in the AFL now and they can't expect that and their fans are ungrateful if they demand success and their coaches should be backed in until they can no longer coach.
