I come here because North supporters are few and far between IRL.

I second this, I fall into this probably pretty common category I call 'the Shinloner' :thumbsu: The only North supporters I've encountered in the wild have been either randoms at a party, very casual acquaintances or people I work with who I don't socialize with off the clock. All my close friends follow other shitty clichéd teams, and consequently don't know their Charlie Combens from their Kayne Turners. This coveted board is as close as I get.

It’s because we had a Forum on the North website before it was closed down when the USSR AFL took over and most from there migrated to here about March 2020 when Careygate happened

Ehhhh Jesus....*sigh* Imagine how different things would be if Careygate had taken place in 2020, rather than 2002 :disappointed:

There used to be another NMFC internet forum called "The Searching Kangaroo", the posters there kinda looked down on Bigfooty people and newbies, so it never really took off as the main place for people to do footy talk about the club.

The majority of NMFC fans posted on the club's web forum on the club website, but the AFL closed them all down when Telstra got control of all the club websites.

Thus, the NMFc community had nowhere else to go so we all ended up here, hence the higher than average post content.

A couple of other Board's are ahead of us now, but If you spaced all of Tas's 30,000 essays into smaller posts we'd come out on top again.

A particular type of motivation, need for self-determination, and inner strength directing life and growth to become all one is capable of being. It is the need to actualize one’s beliefs. It is having a personal vision and being able to actualize that vision from within.
