Super Tottenham....from the Lane.
I was not the one to bring up the subject, but willing to compare.;)
Nimrod, you said that North "have never been good ever" yet they have won 4 flags since your last one which was before colour TV was introduced to this country.

So yeah, you kind of did bring up the subject.

Also, we had the league's longest winning streak over them up until a season ago.

Its a very odd hill for them to die on.

To be fair, the Dees history prior to 2018 is fairly suggestive that 2018 was an exception to the rule.

As I keep saying, I reckon you've got the talent to play finals, be a top 4 side, but you won't get there properly with Goodwin.
It was a flippant comment that deserved to be ridiculed, I've been critical of Goodwin right from the start but to suggest results from 13 years ago is an indication of what will happen next year is idiotic, and that's the nicest way I can put it

What about saying last year's results can be an indication?

What about the last 2 years?

Or the last 4 that showed gradual improvement?

Or perhaps using your noggin and actually doing at least a half arsed analysis on what went wrong?

Nah, let's base our reasoning on what happened 13 years ago lol

Bigfooty at its best!!

Geelong looking at upgrading their picks, looking at Melbourne's Pick 8 for 14/17/24 combo. Not bad we got it for a 26, 50 and a 11-13 2020. Bloody steal when you think about the talent this year compared to what 11-13 will end up next years draft. Why didn't you guys think of that? your first pick is mid/late 2nd round this year. Anyway all the best for the season.

Just like football Wild Bill, you cannot do it right. Your changes should be in bold. And you are only getting 1-3 because your team gets that pick. Have a good season.
Lol twice in 50 years we have finished that low. Want to know how many times the Dees have??

We’ve played the odds beautifully.

Wait, so you are calling it a massive win if you land pick 14,17 which will be blow out to 20 come draft night and be slightly ahead of north ? Haha.

Plus you under sell next year's draft big time Its more rounded next year and a team like the hawks will need two high picks.
