Highly recommend this documentary about the merger of the Bears and Fitzroy. A lot of parallels with the Suns situation and actually left me hopeful for our future based on the success of the Bears towards the end and the eventual 3 peat of the Lions.

Remember GCS need to travel more, played more compare to Brisbane. There is no China trip, Commonwealth games , derby, GWS, just a new port adelaide and Fremantle during that era. Even Willie rioli don't get caught with those low tech technology.

Geez there are some dead set flogs on the Martin trade thread, delusional and arrogant
If I remember correctly didn’t the same thing happen when Prestia officially nominated Richmond.
Everyone was saying he’s not worth Pick 6 he’s a spud that’s injury prone.

Now he’s one of Richmond best players every week and could win their B&F this year.

Might need to bring this up in the Martin thread

To be fair Prestia was a star for us, Martin has been nothing but a disappointment

It was certainly ambitious for the time. Was fitting he got reunited in the end and was holding the ball when they finally won the flag. You can see why people like Lynch and Brown are supportive of the Suns in the media. They've been through a similar situation with the Bears/Lions.

What a disgraceful decision by the AFL to uphold Toby Greene’s one week suspension.

Talk about a trial by Vic media.

No conclusive video evidence
Opposition player says no contact with eyes
worse incident last week copped fine

And the Ban stands :think:

This has the corrupt fingerprints of the AFL and Collingwood all over it.

They want Collingwood in the grand final and it all comes down to the all mighty dollar

I was with you 100% until I saw a new close up video on 360 tonight (Riewoldt and Treloar as guests). He definitely raked his eye region. Was it intentional or careless is another question. But it did not look good.

Hey guys,

Our boy Masto has been let go from West Coast, and current talk is that he may end up with your mob. In light of this I thought I would offer some friendly pointers to help you out in the future if this eventuates:

1. In your autopsy/ changes threads, Chris Masten will always be the first player that you will call for to be dropped. It doesn't matter if he deserves it or not, that's just the rule. Out: Masten.

2. If Chris Masten had a sh*t game then that's the reason that you lost. If other players contributed with poor showings then feel free to call them out, but you must always acknowledge that the primary reason for your loss was because you selected Chris Masten in the side.

3. If Chris Masten has a career best game then you're allowed to say that "he wasn't the worst on ground". Overt praise will be met with scepticism.

4. Chris Masten WILL get caught holding the ball whilst going for a fend-off. Its just a fact of life. Learn to accept it on your pathway to inner peace.

5. If anything spectacular happens during a game (eg: first gamer kicks a goal, someone takes a screamer, etc) the quality of the act can be rated by how happy Chris Masten was to witness it. We call this the "Jubilant Masto Index", and it is a good indicator on whether to include said act on future highlight reels.

In summation, please look after our wayward son. You wont truly know what you have until he's gone.

Sincerely,

The West Coast Board

Quite a drop off recently.
16 possessions, 1 tackle and 0.2 goals, 1.5 i50 per game from the wing?
You guys are making the right call.
Not sure we are!

Might not need to worry..

Gold Coast's reported interested in Masten is understood to have cooled, although St Kilda and Hawthorn have also shown interest and he isn't giving up on adding to his 215 games.

Listening to Brian Taylor and Special Bruce talk about how the “Suns would be looking on in envy at their former players” as if we had a choice in them leaving just rubs in the fact that the football world doesn’t rate us
