My issue with the term is that supporters often take it under their wing as a win when putting in an outstanding performance doesn’t get you the four points. I think “pride” is more appropriate; be proud of the performance but still analyse how the game was lost if that makes sense.

Will be a cracking game, would back my girls in but both teams deserve to play finals. Shame the conference system will rob one of the of the opportunity. Best of luck!

It’s time to let go of the 'honourable loss'

Hi James,
The membership numbers came from the last official release by the AFL – which has been stated in the article. My apologies for not using the stats you have provided and I appreciate that. The supporters are praised in the article for their loyalty – it is fantastic to see so many re-signing.

The issue St Kilda cannot keep sweeping under the carpet

Agree. Admitting it is the first step though and I think it’s bold by Bassat to own up to the debt straight away – in his first interview as president – even though he wasn’t involved.

The issue St Kilda cannot keep sweeping under the carpet

As a North supporter, when Boomer & co were pushed out at the end of 2016 it was heartbreaking but made sense. There were leaders such as Higgins and Ziebell who were more than ready to step up in their places and have done so successfully. You won’t be able to replace the talent overnight but the leadership was there from the start and 100% supported by Brad Scott. Unfortunately it hasn’t been the same for St Kilda and there’s obviously been mounting pressure on Jack Steven who has now bravely put his hand up and says he needs to step away from the light to deal with it. Hannerbery seems keep to lead the club and I think he can do a good job but think he needs the coach’s support and unsure he’ll get it.

Thanks for reading! I feel for Saints supporters, I really do. I hope things turn around but until Richardson is out the door I cannot see that happening.

I appreciate the attempt nonetheless ????
