at this point, 2021 could be Scamper's last season of coaching (he will be turning 15 in April 2021).

All I will say is that I don't buy injuries as an excuse for the paltry 3 wins. IMHO, on paper we've had a good enough team most weeks to win at least 3-4 more games and some losses in particular (Melbourne, GC and Freo games come to mind) were absolutely inexcusable. The Hub factor is also not an excuse, given most other clubs were in similar predicament.

Therefore, as much as I know our list wasn't up to scratch in many respects, it was possible to do a lot better with it, hence why I expect a very thorough review and some tough calls to be made.

That was the first AFL season since 1976 that I never attended an AFL match
Ouch.

I think for me prior to this year I'd missed one Melbourne (away) game since the start of the 2003 season. Sucks for our QLD roo brethren but have to admit, if there was a season to not see any games at all - this was it.

2020 - our horrible anus (as Zondor would put it).

I haven’t missed going to a game during a full season since 1972, when we were last as crud as this.

Hoping like hell the rest of this decade can emulate the rest of the 70’s.

What a bloody year this has been.

There’s an old saying ‘you can't polish a turd but sometimes you can roll it in glitter’ Brad Scott spent at least the last 4 seasons doing just that and after 10’years of being served sh*t on lots of levels, most bitterly in terms of ‘insert players name here’ development (there’s plenty to choose from) I’m thankful for the unforeseen events that have impacted on this season because they’ve given the perfect smokescreen to Shaw/Rawlings to do with the existing list whatever they wanted as they’ve planned for the future, perhaps even shortened the pain by a season.

This season was the killing season.

From next year we rebuild and start a real campaign for our next flag.

I’m on board are you?
