We weren't up by much at half time in the come back game were we? Without checking I know qtr time we were up by alot.


We were 12.1 at q.time with Kingy's shot just before the siren missing. I remember Spider & Shagga kicking goals at the start of the 2nd q. and we were up by 69 ( stern look ) points.
Only up by 24 at half-time.

Pretty sure l'm close to the mark here, but, l haven't got enough tissues to actually sit down and watch it.

Like '98, if l deny it long enough it didn't happen.

Just a regular season game at the end. Fun for the neutrals. It hurt at the time. Now not so much.

Jesse Smith will come back from his ankle injury hungry and better than before
UGH!

A complete tragedy that doesn't get factored in to our last decade enough. I don't reckon a lot of folks ever caught on to how good he really was.

This was the kid that outshone Lance Franklin in his time.

I'm pretty sure he would have been named our captain ahead of spitter.

That BOG performance in the 2007 finals win over the Hawks is etched in the mind. And he had only played 20-odd games at the time. Jesse's game offered some compensation for the horror Qualifying and Prelim debacles, knowing that we had an emerging superstar on our hands. This made the hammy and ankle injuries even more tragic.

After Rhyce Shaw had a few wins as interim coach, "we've turned the corner now, no more weak efforts and we'll slip into 8th".

Never change North!
