    They were playing their games at Whitten oval at that stage too. I can remember sitting in the front room at my friends house in Adelaide st West Footscray watching a Fitzroy Sydney game. Plugger kicked a few in the first quarter so we wandered over the road to watch the show. He got 16 despite sitting on the bench for a while.

    Yeah it wasn't bad wandering down and sneaking into the ground, especially when you knew where to get in for free.

    Heh! Silly Twodogs!!!!
    I would suggest you now have a better than half decent team to barrack for in September (and for a few years) that does not require you to consider any heresy like a second team.

    Re: Gold Coast Suns Viability - How Long Have They Got?

    Huge signing by the Suns today, Jack Lukosius signing on with the Suns today is another positive step forward
    Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
    Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.
    And what started here will indeed have changed the world for the better.

    That's massive for them. All 3 top end kids from last year have extended their contracts for at least the next few years.

    They need to get Jez McLennan over the line now and that will top things off nicely for them
    If they then bring and Rowell and Anderson and they sign extensions the Suns will be putting some solid building blocks in place

    Great result. Three solid years of three lots of top 10 picks playing together will be a massive shot in the arm for them.

    Re: Gold Coast Suns Viability - How Long Have They Got?

    I know it was just a Marsh series game and young teams will tend to fizzle out later in the year but there was some strong performances last night against Geelong which should be a positive for the Suns.
    Rowell looks to be a natural at the senior level

    Re: Gold Coast Suns Viability - How Long Have They Got?

    They suddenly have some depth in their midfield and the stronger bodies of Ellis, Greenwood will make them a better contested side immediately. They should win more games than they did last year but it’s a 3 year curve for them with their top midfield talent still young and key position players not yet consistent performers.

    Good they had a win.

    Re: Gold Coast Suns Viability - How Long Have They Got?

    Gold Coast are weird in that they are always decent for the first say 6 rounds of the year then fall off a cliff.

    This win is a good sign but they did similiar in the past, and the question will be about sustaining good performances instead of a hand full at the start of the year.

    we play them round 8 btw, so should be clear.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    Spot on, they've typicially come out hard early in the season with some good performances and then fizzled out later.
    Very likely to do it again but they now have a better mix of experienced players to go with their younger talented group.

    I'm hoping that it's more that Geelong are falling behind the reigning wooden spooners
    They've done studies you know, 60% of the time, it works every time!
