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
They've got Mason Shaw and Mitch Harvey coming along nicely, they should (and I think will) get games into one or both next season.

Yes , heard some good reports on Mason.
Nige, I am wondering as we like Richmond, do you have anyone ala White or Sarg you would like to donate?   :)

My opinion.. For what it's worth.

Ports 22 that run onto the field each week are deadly. They can beat anyone.
If a couple go down? They are stuffed.
It's no coincidence that their slump during the season started when Carlisle and Trengove went down.

The hardened teams like Hawthorn can cope. There was a point in the year when Lake, Gibson, Rioli, Mitchell, Hodge and a couple of others were all out at the same time and they kept winning anyway.

Port are young so it's not a major issue but for them to push for a flag again in the immediate future they need to keep their list injury free.

In the next 2-3 they will be a powerhouse (excuse the pun)

If they could get Ryder that would be huge. They need him for the ruck and as another forward. Right now there is too much reliance on Schultz, Westhoff and Lobbe. I feel like if any one of those guys were to get injured it would leave a gaping hole.

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.
Yeah it's ridiculous. Shows how much a team can improve after getting handouts from the AFL :P

Maybe having a Super Coach , President , CEO and Fitness Guru might have something to do with it.  :)

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. During the real bad times i really couldnt stand watching Port play, the played a brand of footy that was very unatractive, fast forward to today and you'd be hard pressed to find anyone that doesn't enjoy the brand of footy Port deliver, they really are good to watch. It's exciting footy.

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 is 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 Sturt 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.

Mighty season from the Power, they have become a team I love to watch. Ryder would go a long way in taking the team to that next level ;)

1976 was Sturt mate , I know cause I was there and saw Rick Davies dominate.
Crowds were ovet the fence sitting inside the boundary line.
Something I will never forget.

Haha i just realised id done that and was hoping to fix it before before i was quoted, i was adding a bit more to the original post when i noticed it, damn you GM haha My West End stubby holder even has that game on it so im pissed i stuffed it up. I think the fact Port and Norwood are playing off today in the GF brought about the blunder, well thats my excuse.  :P

A couple of Dudges mates were put over the fence to watch it also mate, his brother inlaw young at the time was in tears, something he still gets ribbed about today haha.

After those last few years, is why I nearly cried at the MCG when we beat the Pies last year in the Elimination final.


I hope 2015 can be even better, am not complaining one bit about the way this season has ended. In all honesty, if Port made the GF this year, I would be fearing a big loss. Yes we have a good team, and our best 22 can compete with anyone, but this loss will make them better prepared for next season. :)

Also, they better not get complacent, we saw the Crows only two years ago get within 5 points of the Hawks, now look where they are. Must continue to try and get better.

Sorry mate, Ryders coming to the Lions  ;)
Yeah , initial thoughts are its out of Port or Brisbane
May require your first rounder to get him.  Brisbane have made it clear they will not give up their first round but are prepared to give up second.Will be an interesting trade week.

Yeah a ready-made tall in the trade period would be a godsend. Especially in defence as once Carlile and Trengove went down Hombsch and co. looked ordinary. We have plenty of run all over the ground and out forward line is incredibly potent. We also need another ruck. Renouf is useless and Redden cant be fit for more than 5 seconds. Super effort from Lobbe to do most of the season solo, but he needs help.

Tiser was saying today the Power are in talks with a forward "not Tyrone Vickery"

Just thinking about the forwards who may be on the market - Waite, Grimley, Membrey...who else?
