Season 2017 - North Melbourne


#141

Surely not serious?


#142

I once worked with a guy who would regularly lock his office door and draw the blinds. What was going on in there doesn’t bear thinking about.


#143

Should fold the joint as soon as the TV deal finishes.


#144

Ziebell is a glorified Melksham.


#145

I reckon he is a great player. Tough hard inside mid with good skills and can kick a goal. What’s the issue with him?


#146

Yeah, I was being a bit flippant. Sorry, been a long day, and lost in translation…

Apart from his tendency to put himself in too much danger and get injured, I’d definitely have in our midfield rotation any day. He’s one of North’s few pure footballers.


#147

That’s exactly how I see him. Can be stupid at times putting homework in danger for very very little gain, but other than that I reckon he is great


#148

Why would you relocate North to Tasmania. Tassie has no money or inclination to support a full time AFL team. You are lazy like the media you criticise.


#149

Ziebell is a high quality B grade midfielder. Never had enough endurance combined with kicking blindly from packs to be an A grader.


#150

I don’t think he’s that good.
I’d take Cunnington first every day. You know what you’re getting with Cunnington, plus he’s not a filthy sniper


#151

Last part is correct, but I would take him over cunnington. Both good in midfield but Zeibell can go forward, dangerous as a resting mid


#152

Cunnington is a class above Ziebell. Underrated by the general footy population.


#153

They’re both at North, no-one gives a ■■■■.


#154

Bob assesses the NMFC and…

Tassie did have the inclination, hence their support for both Hawks and North down there. The problem with any Tassie team is where to put them. If they go down to Hobart then the north of the state won’t bother supporting them. If you place then in Launceston then Hobart won’t support them (where more of the money is).

The money situation wouldn’t be any worse than the AFL currently has with the Suns, GWS, Sydney, Saints and Bulldogs.


#156

There will be some bog average players earning decent coin at North Melbourne in 2018 just to ensure they meet the salary cap minimum.


#157

Your first paragraph supports my contention about no inclination. You need to be United to have a team in Tassie. It took Tassie 100 years to have a statewide competition. Enough said. And there is limited corporate money to support a team. There are reasons why a Tassie team in the ALF has never happened.


#158

Bet you and your workmates did think about it though.


#159

Should have moved to the gold coast when offered.


#160

What, actually doing some work?!!!
