SA state guernsey should be sacrosanct

SA state guernsey should be sacrosanct

6 Feb 2014

Yesterday, the Adelaide Crows announced to the football world that they will be wearing a replica South Australian state guernsey in the Round 2 Showdown against Port Adelaide. This surprising and polarising move was described by the Crows as a tribute to South Australian football, which will coincide with the opening of the new Adelaide […]

AFL on the borderline of disaster

AFL on the borderline of disaster

27 Jul 2013

I’m not all that sure what I’m supposed to make of the AFL’s current predicament.

Pejorative names such as Aerial ping pong, GayFL and “that shit sport where they wear short-shorts” were used interchangeably. And while the Giants have somewhat made their mark […]

The Kurt Tippett saga: Adelaide’s reputation is at risk

The Kurt Tippett saga: Adelaide's reputation is at risk

15 Nov 2012

The Adelaide Crows were once seen as the pin up club of the AFL. They have a large supporter base, good attendances, fantastic administration, a safe future in an AFL heartland, no player scandals, and they always adhere to the AFL’s rules. That is until revelations regarding draft tampering and breaching the salary cap with […]
