Just checking in to see if any posters would still take Tom Powell over Jai Newcombe?

Who cares ? None of you battling clubs will be playing finals this year,

Wouldn't be gloating too much as a Hawks fan after your cluster collapse against Essendon.
We're a rebuilding side with inconsistency bound to happen. We'll bring out games like we did against the Cats and Port, but we'll do what we did against Essendon and Sydney aswell, we'll also bring out what we did against St Kilda.

You get 3 versisons of the side.

Maybe 4 with the competitive against the best (we've had some key outs with like big no1 forward, big no1 ruck being out for example) like we did against the Dees.

The Youth at North isn't the problem, it's coaching and player development panel and 25 years and older group mainly

Kids like Jason Horne-Francis (and Sam Walsh) are very rare breeds, young studs who display clear future leadership potential only a few games into their career.

Can you honestly name right now who North's next captain will be (JH-F will be someday but too soon)

I can't think of any medium term choice right now
This 100%.

The only reason I continued to watch the horrible mess we served up on Friday night, was to watch JHF. He's the only one who competes contest to contest, from the first to last siren. He's got work rate, skills, and presence.
I'd make him captain from next year, partly to try and retain him, because every club will be after him.

Blues fans are pretty cocky these days after receiving Top 5 draft picks for the past 20 years :rolleyes:

Dees fans are similar, but at least they actually won something before they started mouthing off.

Let's see you guys at least get to a Grand Final some time this century.

We do, but its nice to see closet Blues supporters come out of the woodwork

You have been trash for 20 years

We rebuilt
Won a flag
Restocked
Made 4 GFs in a row, won 3
Made 2 prelims
Before you even looked like making top 4
Which you still haven't done

Pull your head in

By the way, I never personally congratulated you on contributing to those grand final wins. Well done!

You didnt critise the teams, you critised the ability for fans of these 3 clubs to debate who had better youth

Acting like some high and mighty poster telling people what they can and cant do

Dont come in having a go at people about their sides being no good and then complain when someone lets you know your side hasnt accomplished anything

Mate I said nothing of the sort. Read back a few posts.

*Dont defend posters that do that
Haha righto. If you've read some of my exchanges with that poster you'd know I've been very critical of many of their views. Truth be told I didn't read back through the chain of posts I was responding to the sentiment that just because a team has been good or bad doesn't mean fans can't have legitimate views on other teams

I read back to work out the meaning of his reply. I hadn't read Elmer's post until he replied. Not that cryptic
2 points.

1) He literally quoted Elmer's post. If you read his you read Elmer's.

2) I was just admiring you telling someone to "read the posts" and then proceeded to claim ignorance because you said you didn't read back before replying. Practice what you preach and all. :)

Still can't believe North's 2020 picks 1 and 2 can't get a game in this team. Just dire!

I mean Phillips has been recovering from Glandular Fever for almost the entire season, but anyway.... Noble's attitude to Powell is plain weird and is one of the reasons the natives are starting to get restless towards him.

He might struggle to make the mid season draft at this point.


The season has obviously disintegrated into a shambles, we as supporters will just have to cop being the butt of all jokes from opposition fans for the foreseeable future.

Probably wouldn't be that way in here if your mate who's gone AWOL didn't spend the summer talking up Norths young mids, and potting Hawks and Crows lists.

Can't remember anyone potting the Crows, anyway.

No real defending this season from our perspective.

Absolutely not. I like North and I like their supporters in general.

But in this thread, it is fair game because of the preseason theatrics from some of your delusional cheerleaders
