Brad Scott slagging aside, I'm curious what we did focus on during the 2018-19 preseason.
From the back 50 - run, handball, short kick and change the angles as many times as possible before exiting? Looked pretty good against the witches hats although when even they forced a few turnovers the signs were ominous.

Brad's take on how 6-6-6 would pan out.

Its funny - he was instrumental in getting that rule change, and it how it would play out in reality completely blindsided him.

He was also instrumental in getting the salary cap banking change in place, because he thought would allow him to make godfather offers to gun midfielders.

That didn't work out as planned either.

He's a perfect fit for the AFL hey.
The 6-6-6 rule changes were intended to increase scoring. In fact, scoring decreased. So, yup. Perfect fit for AFL and destined for Head of Football Operations in 2-3 years time. God help us all.

The original official North site had a forum that was 40% dedicated to slagging off Shane Clayton and Stuey Cochrane. It was a shocker at times!!
His best friend at the time tried to sell me a youth bible and get me to join their church group. I knew it was his best friend because I was wearing a North jumper and he mentioned him. I was sitting down in a park eating my sandwich. Like all religious people, they were overly nice and pushy. After 20 mins they left but were sure to leave me a copy of their bible.

All I remember thinking afterwards was "******* Cochrane. That was his fault"

I beat Shannon Watt to death via the internet on several occasions.

Could never work out what JYD was doing there.
I remember MC'ing a function of Northerners with JYD who set each table a task. Pick this weeks team. He listed the eligible players and who we were playing against. I'm guessing there were about 6 tables who then had to talk to their team and answer a few questions from JYD - why is this player not in; if you choose this player who will play on this one; etc etc. Not one of the tables selected Watt in their teams - it was at a time when we all thought he must have had pics of JYD in a compromising position as Watt was never dropped. JYD increasingly cracked the shits as the night progressed and he realised not one person there rated Watt at the time. Talk about spaghetti lips.

Was that the gasometer wing/ searching kangaroo forum ?

Nah mate this was - it was the actual official site of the club. It seems unbelievable now that there'd be any sort of unmoderated forum on a club site, but there it was. The internet was like the wild west back then!
