There's an idea - call them the Fitzroy/Brisbane/Hobart Wilburys. Started in Fitzroy, fail, moved to Brisbane as the Bears, fail, reincarnated as the Lions ....... looking like a fail again. Ship em down to Hobart and see what happens, if that fails, try Darwin, NZ & China (sorry Kochie).
Umpires no. Supporters yes.
Go to the losing team's facebook page and look at the umpire blaming!
I've been following the sport for over 4 decades and each year it gets worse, ask Harry Beitzel!
Tim, trying to make practice work in theory is the dodgy work of economists isn't it? It's pretty easy to take the results then construct a narrative with hand picked stats to support it and say "hey look it was there all along!". As Allan Jeans famously challenged his '89 premiership team at 3/4 time "Are you prepared to pay the price?", the club is now paying the price of 4 flags in 8 years, the extensive loss of off field personnel as well as the electric shock therapy of Lewis & Mitchell being ripped out is taking it's toll.
Might officially be a "rebuild" soon - if so I'd like to toss Jeff Kennett into the concrete foundations
Been a helluva ride.
