    North Melbourne

    Sounds like change is brewing at North

    From Sam Edmund:
    North Melbourne have just been hit by a triple walkout in their recruiting department. I understand Mark Finnigan, Glenn Luff and Ben Birthisel all handed in their resignations today - frustrated at the club over its management.
    Coach under pressure as well.
    FFC: Established 1877

    Premierships: AFL 1954, 2016 VFA - 1898,99,1900, 1908, 1913, 1919-20, 1923-24, VFL: 2014, 2016 . Champions of Victoria 1924. AFLW - 2018.

    Absolute poisoned chalice.

    They'll probably change coaches a few times, then after three more years of top ten draft picks, the AFL will parachute James Hird in who totally coincidentally will make them an ok team and James Hird a darling again.

    They really made some huge mistakes with the mass delistings and the recruitment of Stevenson.

    More issues:

    Jason Horne-Francis missed the R9 game v Port with hammy tightness after traveling to Adelaide without the club’s knowledge. The No.1 draft pick flew to SA after returning from Perth with the team & was spoken to by management upon his return.

    Watch this space I think Clarkson will end up there next year. Or are we about to see Tasmania get their long awaited AFL team.

    I think Clarkson has said he wants to go to a club in the premiership window.

    Kane Cornes has been calling this out and you have to wonder why it's a complete walk out by 3 leading figures of their team.?

    I hope our guys are locked away.

    It's not a walk out with 2 of the 3 receiving other job offers over the last few weeks.

    Luff announced his decision to leave today. Persuing other opportunities.

    Re: North Melbourne

    Would Goldy be worth pursuing ?

    Any of their backmen or KPD worth considering ?

    Plus if we want to retain English we need to play him as a ruck.
