That No Bull bloke was certainly full of it.

....you might laugh at this proposition....

And people wonder why there is not more faith in the NMFC staff/Board.

The irony is that a few of us did laugh when No Bull posted this nonsense - however even the most pessimistic of us wouldn't have thought we would go 0-4 in Tassie in 2019 - and that is the favourite right now.

Gunna get real ugly by the fourth game the way things are going.

Have nothing but love for Tassie and Tasmanians, but Saturday night's game passed by the AFL and it's public as if it didn't happen at all.

Out of sight. Out of mind. Out of ideas.

No Bull said:
If we win 4 games in Tassie in 2019 and it helps us play finals, would you be happy with that? Would you buy a ticket if we made a prelim again? Would you do everything in your power to secure a GF seat if we made it? You might laugh at this proposition, but the club is thinking this way. 4 wins in Tassie this year would have seen us in the finals.


First time i read this, wow no wonder the club is in no mans land what a pathetic thing to say and shows the thinking of the board.

It staggers me that death riding **** stains like Eddie McGuire somehow draw a link between sacking a coach and relocating. How does one have any connection to the other?
Eddie just does anything that benefits Collingwood.

He sees eliminating other clubs from Melbourne as an easy way to continue to grow his own club. He's never been subtle about it.

As you say he's an absolute stain of a person.

I can’t recall him saying we’d only have three games, only remember him saying we’d always
be a Melbourne club. At any rate having a categorical 4 game limit stated is pretty positive
There's a quote earlier in the thread about the maximum number of games being three.

The next Hobart game is against the low supported GWS in 2 weeks,last year this game got just a bit over 7000,probably get even less this year considering its a twilight game.

We win against Suns (as we must and should) and I'd expect 8,000 or so.

Lose and well, yep. Nearly halve it. Probably won't even go myself.
