Do our co captains have some sort of competition between themselves where they take turns seeing who can piss the supporter base off the most?
Didn't Jonas post a pic of himself snow skiing in response to supporters complaining about Wines injuring himself wakeboarding?

Should have been stripped of the half-captaincy there and then.

You could just about bet London to a brick that once Jonas retires he will forget where Alberton oval is fairly quickly and will be seen regularly on the parade sucking on a cappuccino, complete with that inane grin on his face and his pinky extended.

As for the retirement bit, hopefully within 3 or 4 years the arrogant campaigner will be a distant memory.

Also, if you're a hack footballer you need to bring charisma and great leadership to the table as captain. Jonas lacks both in spades and will fill multiple chapters in "Derp - The Doubling: The Hinkley Years" when it is eventually written.

Jonas is a self-entitled flog. If it's between the two of them, I'd 10x prefer Ollie as sole captain - at least he speaks about Port Adelaide traditions and supporters with respect even if it is possibly lip service.
And yet, Ollie is the one who wanted to be traded just weeks ago.

What a choice we have.

No one, and I mean literally no one, is suggesting the single captain model will give is more wins.

It's about the loss of a highly visible tradition that links us to our past, for no discernible gain other than making Tom and Ollie's lives a bit less hard and difficult. We've diluted our identity for these bozos and they can't even see that this is the case.
Yeah i get that tradition is important but one thing Jonas said that was correct is that we wouldn't be complaining about the co captaincy if we won the flag. I think we would all sacrifice some tradition in order to win games of footy, but the fact is we didn't win the flag we finished 10th...again. It was sold to us on the basis it would improve on field performance. All i was saying is that it wouldn't make any difference to on field performance either way.

Was in Glasgow tonight to watch Celtic play.. Not the most exciting game but ticked off a bucket list thing for me.

Walked past a statue of someone who knew a bit about winning at a club that knows a bit about winning.

Thought of some of the things that Mr Jonas and others have said recently.

Apologies for the photo taken on my Samsung potato when it was 30 degrees cooler than adelaide.

Ollie speaks about our tradition and stuff, he talks a good talk but cant cut it when it counts on the field.

Jonas needs to be thrown out of the club along with Hinkley and Koch.
Why is there so much hate for Jonas?

Each time i watch him he puts it all on the line, he mightn't be the most talented player, but always seems to give his best, crashes blokes over, helps out teammates and has to put up with continually being out of position due to our turnover riddled midfield burning the footy as we all stream forward.

Hes the least of our problems, imho
