Bias[edit]

"... allowing the crows to steal their second premiership in as many years" - I don't think the word 'steal' is in the spirit of wikipedia...


[edit]

"...changed their logo, mainly due to strong supporter pressure" - I don't recall this being the reason at all. Does anyone still have the issue of their "Roos News" magazine with that in it? -- Schem 03:39, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

No longer North Melbourne[edit]

This entire article needs to be modernised, the North Melbourne Football Club are officially no longer called that name, they are now called The Kangaroos Football Club and have been called that from about 2002. The artciled needs to be re-named Kangaroos and has to be completely re-written to conform to their new name.(Jones234Jones 00:50, 19 May 2007 (UTC))

I disagree with this. The actual club is the North Melbourne Football Club. While they do promote themselves as "the Kangaroos" they are not the "Kangaroos Football Club". We should revert this edit and include aka North Melbourne in the first line. Schem 07:17, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
Welcome to last year. From the Roos website The decision to play and trade under the banner of the Kangaroos reflected the Club's decision to broaden its national appeal. While we are and always shall remain the North Melbourne Football Club, fully capitalising on the Club's long-standing nickname the Kangaroo - a true Australian icon - is believed to provide significant opportunities in developing an Australia-wide profile. I'll try to revert it back. And I don't think that 6 hrs, 40 mins is long enough to decide this.

Kangaroos Football Club they definitely are not. That name is NEVER used by the club. The Kangaroos maybe, but that is far too broad a title for the page. The-Pope 02:09, 24 May 2007 (UTC)
Definitely not "Kangaroos Football Club". They may play as the "Kangaroos" but the CLUB is named "North Melbourne Football Club". --Grimface 87 06:25, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

ISSUE IS NOW RESOLVED. On the 6th of December James Brayshaw announced that the club is goin back to the name North Melbourne NimChief (talk) 16:53, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Vandalism?[edit]

The "Best and Fairest" entry for 1959 has been changed on July 18th, 2007 from "Boh Smells" to "Conor Connorson" by 124.168.129.185, who has made several vandalizing edits. Perhaps somebody could check this particular entry. 91.0.234.131 12:21, 29 July 2007 (UTC)


Membership numbers[edit]

Does anyone have a source for those numbers? 121.45.35.113 05:02, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

membership?[edit]

i think the 2008 membership has jumped a bit since the 3rd of march Kangaroosrule (talk) 09:05, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Dissolving the shares[edit]

North Melbourne is currently the only club that has any form of private ownership, through shares. They've just announced a plan to dissolve the shares and hand membership back to the members. Can someone who's more familiar with this article update the article accordingly? - Richard Cavell (talk) 06:32, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Censorship - Chicken Sex Video Scandal[edit]

I want to know why the Chicken Sex Video scandal section - which was fully cited - was removed. --Rulesfan (talk) 08:37, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Major rewrite & football pioneers[edit]

I have just gone through and made a major rationalisation of this article. In particular:

  • Making the tone more encyclopedic (previously there was too much hyperbole)
  • Severely trimming back the recentist slant in the history
  • Severely trimming back the unencyclopedic "shinboner spirit" section

I have tagged the "football pioneers" section as unreferenced. This section makes some very bold claims about the innovations that North Melbourne has brought to the game, and I need to see a citation before I believe it. Aspirex (talk) 11:05, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

Incorrect 2014 membership and attendance figures[edit]
