North Melbourne in 2021 W0 L5 D0 For 195 Agst 661 %29.5 Pts 0
Three straight 100+ floggings with plenty more in store.
They actually had one decent player on the weekend Eddie Ford. Surprisingly he hasn't played in North's AFL team as yet. He stood out like a beacon compared to North's other players. Would be shocked if they don't promote him this week.
Not sure what the kangaroos draw is for the remainder of the season but it will be a very long season.

North percentage of 29.5 is the worst after round 5 since Preston in 1910

most recent percentage closest to North was 30.03 by Brunswick in 1990

The North AFL firsts are not that much better and it will be years before they come good - if ever!

The AFL should bite the bullet and just piss them off to Tassie as the Tasmainian Kangaroos.

Like they did to South Melbourne and Fitzroy.

Billy, they might as well be reincarnated as Hotham LOL.

Not much light at the end of the tunnel for north Melbourne

They must love Rhyce Shaw at North - as coach he dragged the team so far down they were in the sewer, sacked all their best players and then quit citing mental health isues. Two weeks later he bobs up at GWS as an assistant coach lol

Rhys Shaw didn't sack anyone. He wasn't a part of that decision making.

Most of North's players last week were made up of NAB players with a few coming over from Tassie. Not ideal for any club when you get players to fill in from week to week. Watching the replay last week Eddie Ford looked good and would be very surprised if he did not get a call up at AFL level this week. He comes from Yarraville- Seddon.
North's overall list is not good and the depth at Arden street is very shallow to say the least.

digs

North's ruckman Tristan Xerri would have to be a certainty for a senior game next week. 

According to the commentators he received over 40 possessions against the Bombers.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green
