What a joke of a club and a joke of a president . We are north Melbourne we are going so well we don’t need to make money from gambling , alcohol sponsorships etc etc. Oh wait srry we have a deal with world vision. How much is that worth again? Brayshaw what a muppet.

Thats an intersting observation. I am not sure how branding ourselves as a partner of a well known and well run Charity is going to hurt us finacially. It just may create a point of difference that attracts other sponsorship opportunities that other clubs cannot. As for the personal comment towards Jim Brayshaw, pretty shameful , but I don't see Essendon doing much better any time soon, money, etc, did you still cry over 96 and 99 bomber? Great years for us.........

Ill give you 96 pal , as for 99 well that didnt really happen as far as Im concerned we had your measure all the way. Still consider that one as our 17th Flag. As for Brayshaw well ive never liked him since the day as a young kid aged 9 years old at the Adelaide oval during a state game. He was fielding at fine leg, I leant over the fence at politely requested an autograph. Gave me a firm doughnuts as if he were some superstar. I also find him an average presenter and not all funny. Very surprised hes got to where he has in the media..... No north will be right mate Ben Warren, Gavin Urquhart, Spud Firrito, Cruze Garlett, Linsay Thomas, Matt Campbell they will take you to your next flag buddy. You can tell I hate North. I know you like a gamble Mick how about a sleeve of balls for round 1 Clash. Donate to me Mick especially now that you are sponsored by world vision.

It was ours buddy, u know it. Then again maybe North were the Steven Bradbury of the year 1999. I still have the Essendon 1999 Weg poster on my wall though:)

I had a mate of mine (Essendon supporter) who was lauding over me all year in '99 about what Essendon were going to do to us in the Grand Final. The problem is - you have to get there first.

Well North fans, we have finished the practice games in good fashion, knocking off the Blues in the final game yesterday, with Big Drew BOG. We have no real injury concerns and seem to be primed to get off to a good start when the season proper begins. Interesting to note that we seem to be flying under the radar at the moment with the media not showing us any respect. No doubt come round 10, everyone will be looking at the ladder, and saying soft draw, but we will trouble everyone this season, and be competitive against the top 4 from last season. Go Roos!!

Flying under the radar? a fortnight before the first game? That could be the pre-season cliché equivalent of taking each week as it comes. They don't know we're there..... no one is there yet... Everyone is flying under the radar, as the freaking radar hasn't been switched on yet...
