Hi guys, great thread. In light of recent events, i was hoping that someone has Spud's hof speech from 2007. Also, plugger's full speech from 2010 as well.

Thanks in advance.

George, love your work. I recently got an Apple TV with YouTube on it to hook up to my TV. Some time in the past I thought I read that this archive was all in one spot on a YouTube channel. I can't find the reference now - am I on the right track or is my memory playing tricks on me?

No mate I've sourced the videos from various channels, but mostly from riewoldt12 and StKilda FC Archive on YouTube.

Hey, this is one for amateur historians out there who don't mind a trip back to the bad old days.

As someone who only got into AFL in the late nineties, I was wondering if the older supporters out there could contextualise the seventies and eighties at the club for me.

Wikipedia states:
.................
1974 saw the Saints decline to the lower half of the ladder for the first time since the 1950s, finishing tenth with seven wins. The club failed to build on competitive seasons in 1975 and 1976. Allan Jeans coaching career at St Kilda ended at the end of the 1976 season after 16 seasons.

1978 began and ended strongly, but a mid-season slump saw the club narrowly miss the finals. 1979 began well with a win over Hawthorn before a run of defeats and finishing a clear last. Continuing financial pressures and defeats saw the club remain in the bottom three for every season from 1979 to 1986.
.................

How did we become so financially poor in the first place? Had we always been poor (and if so, why?), or were we sleeping or making bad decisions at crucial moments? I'd like to understand how we got from many years of security at the top end of the ladder to the basket case that we were in the eighties.

wow fantastic work George ...
shame we couldnt get round 14 1996 .....
seems like and obscure game to most people but for me a very special game ... see in round 14, 1996 a young whipper snapper at the age of 14 managed to see his first ever live St Kilda win .. that kid was me .. its a game burnt into my memory... Spida with 3 goals , Aussie Jones with 3 goals and Nicky Winmar with 3 goals...
Harvey at his absoulute peak ...
i had only just started following footy so it was only my 3rd or 4th game i had been to ...

;)
