The AFL’s NAB Cup pre-season competition is good, but why isn’t it great? The current system, as part of round one, has a round-robin system where there are three teams and three games in one day/night.
The opening round of the NAB Cup was very successful on the re-introduced Fox Footy Channel.
2012 will be a huge year for the AFL, and will have a lot of firsts. It will be the first year of an 18-team competition, with the introduction of the Greater Western Sydney Giants. The first matches will be played at Blundstone Arena (Hobart), Skoda Stadium (Showgrounds), and Blacktown International Sports Ground.
After five weeks of footy, we’ve seem some cracking games, three drawn games, and a young team improve each week. Collingwood have proven why they are the dominant force in the league, followed by Geelong and Hawthorn.
The AFL this year has introduced its 17th team, Gold Coast Suns, and next year there will be an 18th team, Greater Western Sydney Giants. But what’s next?
