i think it's depth in the talls that's a worry like if Schulz went down but guess most clubs are in the same boat

Port were super impressive I'll admit. Didn't think they would back up last season with a season as good as this one. I'm still impressed at how far they've come in a few short years. I think it was only 2011 where they only won three games? Ridiculous stuff.

Shows how much a team can improve after getting handouts from the AFL
Its been a remarkable turn around, to think Hinkley has only been there 2 years beginning in 2013 to lift them to 13 wins 11 loses 54% win Ratio in total and then raise it again to 64% with 16 wins 9 loses in total for this year after only 8 wins and one draw in total for seasons 2011-12. What a turn around its been, crowds have lifted from on avg 21,676 in 2011, 19,911 in 2012, 26,915 in 2013 and 45,029 this year for Port (Adelaide Oval a huge benefit for crowds). It gives pause to other struggling clubs that with the right people in place amazing things can be achieved in a short space of time.Its mind boggling to see where they were in 2011-2012 to now 2014, i had a real fear of the club folding, loosing the showdowns loosing the rivalry of a two team town, footy in this state was a bit humdrum when it was just the Crows, with Port coming in it lifted immediately and the rivalry was also immediate. Very exciting for SA fans with the Showdowns and even interstate footy lovers enjoy the Showdowns and the intensity these bruising encounters are played at regardless of where each team was placed on the ladder. Players coming to blows at the Alma hotel showed how the two teams felt about each other.1,000,000+ fans walked through the turnstiles of Adelaide oval this year. AAMI stadium saw 50,000 plus crowds about 4 times since the Crows arrived then Port and i think 6 times in total if you include SANFL results. An amazing 66,000 watched Port versus Norwood in the 1976 GF Dudge was one of them, this year alone 50,000 plus was achieved 9 times with Port topping the list with two Crowds of 52,000, amazing stat. Thank God they got it sorted there was so much more to lose than just the club, if you live in SA and support either club you will know exactly what i mean. What could Port do in 2015, who knows but it has me worried haha, well done Port.

Sorry mate, Ryders coming to the Lions
Think the best thing Port have going for them is there coach very impressive , just think how long he was up for a top job and never got there before Port took a chance , well that looks like paying off for many a year
Would like Hinkley to get it ex Geelong / GC Suns
