There is an absolute tidal wave of water still to pass under the proverbial bridge between now and the first weekend in October, but as we have just passed the halfway mark of the season it’s quite often time to reflect and look ahead.
Every year around this time, I manage to get locked into a debate with someone about why the AFL doesn’t have State of Origin.
It was way back, what seems almost half a season ago now, when I wrote about how four teams in the competition were looking so far ahead of the rest.
I’m all for optimism. Gee, in sport you need to own it. Seasons can be long and torturous for many football supporters, and if it wasn’t for positive thinking and optimism, well the future could look as bleak as it realistically may be.
So there is was. Another round down, another step towards September. So what was the biggest story out of another weekend packed full of action?
It’s May, not even the midway point of the season, but regardless of the timing, it didn’t stop one thinking ahead to September prospects after glancing at the AFL ladder on a lazy Sunday morning.
