The elephant in the room is that our club is "nice" and several opposition clubs are campaigners.

Clarkson won tonight because he does not care about being a model citizen, he does not care about the rules, all he cares about winning, and if that means he has to be a campaigner then so be it.

We're not going to take the next step until winning by any means is all that matters.

I would never, ever, ever pot his integrity, effort or ability to impact a game.
It’s such a tough call for a coach with any player that plays with heart and effort but when their skills let’s them down...
I love Ziebell but the ‘old school’ footballer just doesn’t fit in today’s game sadly. Even Arch would be in the same situation

Rhyce can see it and he will make the call that is required here in a dignified manner befitting the captain of the NMFC.

JZ is like Matty Larkin in his last few years at North - great careers come to an end quickly when you cant keep up with the pace of the game. Not the first this has happened to a great player - wont be the last.

Just like we kept Bard on for too long as coach we have done the same with JZ as captain.

As a few of us said in the last off season - JZ should have been relieved of the captaincy and any decision to play him based on his playing merits.

Archer was skillful by foot. Even in 05-07 when he couldn't play on the bigs, he stayed in because he could hit targets.
