2 Dec 2011

Over several years of calamity and sordidness, Brendan Fevola has proven himself to be the fool of the AFL. Fevola has plummeted from the echelons of the game that sustained him and originally made him. Through nothing short of abominable behaviour and the perils of addiction, Fevola has lost it all.

Clubs run at massive losses, no longer connected to their communities but operated as unsustainable bastions of […]

Where will your AFL club stand in 2015?

14 Jun 2011

The 2011 AFL season is at its halfway point, but instead of analysing what has happened so far, let’s cast our eye on the future. Five years into the future in fact, including this year, to 2015.
