Give me the team with the best coach next year that will help guide and develop the youth
(Please be warned: Self harm, family separation, and pregnancy loss discussed.)
Clarko is unfortunately past it.
I think it is a stretch to say he doesn't have the stomach for it, he and the club went down a different list strategy hoping that the remaining members of the three peat team would be enough to allow them to top up. Obviously it didn't work but it is a different situation, he clearly would know what he is getting himself in to at North.For a team like North, absolutely.
Give him a team who has a list in contention to win it all and Clarko would be great, seeing he's a fantastic coach in his element. However, he showed at the end of his run at Hawthorn he doesn't have the stomach for a rebuild at this point of his career, and North needs to rebuild everything at the club.
You talk about selection integrity while also suggesting they should pick him so he can play in front of his family?Not even close to comparable, What a weird comparison
Dropped for his first game home in Adelaide, chance to play in front of family and friends
What a way to endear yourself to a player already struggling with homesickness
And don't talk about selection integrity
When Stephenson is playing

I find peculiar that there sone neutral fans who criticise Adelaide for being hard at the trade table, but don’t do the same to other clubs who have doing it for years.This idea that Adelaide is screwing over other clubs is ridiculous.
What we expected to give up last year, and what I hope we do this year, is more or less in line with what we have received for our departing players in the past.
In 2017 we gave up Charlie Cameron for pick 12. Cameron at that point is the closest comparison to Rankine I can think of, but we’re “screwing them over” by not wanting to give up pick 4 without getting something back?
There were multiple deals last year that were similar in that players went for similar picks that they were drafted for - Cerra, CCJ as examples.
Yet, you can’t understand how Rankine isn’t worth pick 4… Lol
Those are pretty bad examples though.
Cerra’s first 4 seasons were better and more consistent than Rankine.
As for CCJ, that trade was hilarious, it was never worth that (and not because psd). That was just a fail by north.
The crows just struggled to beat us at home when we had no bench in the last quarter and our best 2 kids in JHF and TT playing in the reserves.
He's being disciplined as standards have been raised on expected levels of professionalism. He responded today in the right way.One is playing in the reserves because you thought disciplining him was more important than retaining his services.
He's had a tough year personally, as well as also lacking some professionalism, but has also improved in recent weeks.The other is averaging under 13 possessions a game in the firsts, and has kicked 2 goals for the year after kicking 24 and averaging 18 disposals last year.
