We all know the issues. Hell I have been complaining about midfield depth and drafting genuine midfielders for 10 years.
I was wrong as far as backing Richardson and getting Shiel as that has not worked although I will say it did work in 2019 . Other than that I have been saying for a long while the midfield was out of kilt and we keep drafting flankers to play in it.
Our only hope is the changes that where made at the end of 2020 give us a better focus on list planning even if Dodoro still has one finger in the pie.


We created the Shiel rod for our back.

We talked him out of the Carlton private jet on the belief that we would sign him for unders leveraging the GWS cap situation.

They out manoeuvred us by off loading Scully.

That deal should have been done. The error lies in believing we would outsmart everyone.

it took til flags for tigers and dogs fans to become insufferable
blues are there at 8-2.

that said, I like them cos I like the rivalry. but given we're polar opposites at the moment, and no chance of being a stone in their shoe, its not much of a rivalry atm

lol... JHF doesn't give a f, that's why he did it.

He knows the club is begging for his signature. He has free reign to do whatever he likes.

There's no pressure (just like on our team).

I'd say if they keep annoying him he'll refuse to sign and look elsewhere.

Adelaide offered pick 4 (pick 6 after bids), 2022 first (currently pick 4) and Melbourne's 2022 first (currently pick 18) for pick 1 and North's 2022 second rounder.

Not looking good for North.
It was bizarre to knock it back at the time.

Norf in a world of hurt here.
