I come in peace.
Went with one Tiger mate and three North mates last night.
Smashed us in every department.
Cunnington is criminally underrated in the footy world. Gun.
way too good and I said to my North mates that you were better than a 3-7 side before the game.
All the best.

Can someone explain to me why Jarrad Waite got such a armchair ride out of the AFL system when you had Wood/Zurhaar/Larkey in the reserves?

Surely this went a long way to costing Scott his job. These guys should have been in the side alot earlier then they were. How can you dump Brent Harvey to give young guys a chance yet plod along Jarrad Waite when you got those 3 in the reserves. All 3 are gems if you ask me and the idea that they had to wait for Waite to depart seems crazy to me
The problem was not in playing Waite as when he played he was elite. The issue was a) a transition plan for when he did retire and b) not playing Larky was a direct replacement when Waite got injured last year... it was criminal by Scott and now he starts getting shown up for the fraud he is.

Genuine question;

Why can't we wear this year's Indigenous jumper every home game?

It's so good. And with the blue shorts? It's our best look by far.
Because Eddie would complain to Gill that it clashes with the Pies away strip.

Jeez your a ******
If they're not piss weak then they're spoilt brats.

They/You (whoever) want to complain about Tasmania but our crowds are shit. We'll lose Good Friday because our crowds are shit. We're made fun of in the media because our crowds are shit.

That is not as much on the club as people want to believe. Where is everyone?

Zurhaar set the tone early. The tackle on Stack. Then shepherds Anderson’s kick through for a goal, after that he nails Butler HTB and wins the free kicks and it to Brown for a goal. I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t get 10 coaches votes.

Played for the jumper, like true shinboners.
Spot on.

Just get that feeling that IF the team can work on the stamina of running out games (rinse repeat) like they did, they'll trouble plenty and may be the dark horses for a finals push. Look forward to what Hosier (newly recruited fwd) can bring to Shaw's fwd set up.

It was the first time in ages that I didn't start manically chewing my finger nails when we got out to a five goal lead.
It was great to see. Even at VFL level, the Tigers fought back, but we eventually kicked away instead of dropping our heads. A welcome change.
