Pursued other interests such as what? Hunting for toilet paper? Queuing up Bunnings? Stock piling hand sanitizer? Its not just sport that is shut down, its all the things that people might other wise pursue as well.

This is the future of sports broadcasting

It will change – if it needs to – after consultation and deliberation. Players fought hard to get where they are, they aren’t just going to roll over and let the AFL make changes without compromises. Nor should they.

Dangerfield unsure of shorter quarters

He did.

AFL reeling from job cuts

This isn’t going to suddenly end in may either. This will continue long beyond that. This is only the start.

AFL stars staring at pay cuts

Will be interesting to hear all the things the TV microphones can’t usually pickup with the noise of the crowd obfuscating it. Will footy broadcasts need to be rated R?

What effect will empty stands have on the AFL?

So same symptoms as the flu, same outcome as the flu, same ‘at risk’ people dying as the flu … but its so different?

Australian sport in doubt as government advises against large public gatherings - from Monday

These ‘medical professionals’ who are pushing this hysteria over what is essentially the flu are doing more lasting long term damage than this alleged pandemic is.

And how about Hawthorn’s Tasmanian ‘leg up’ and their two home games a year against the Cats at the MCG? So much for home and away.

What do the AFL clubs want for Christmas, and what does the new year hold? Part one

It’s an annual pastime. More wishful thinking than grounded in anything logical.

What’s not true about my statement jonboy?

The decade that was: Geelong Cats

So interstate sides should always be the home side against Geelong? That isn’t any fairer.

The decade that was: Geelong Cats

There is always a home side in every sporting game. It’s called the home and away season for a reason. It is not the Home, away and some random place chosen out of a hat season.

The decade that was: Geelong Cats

One of them has to be the home side, what inducement is their to play a home game elsewhere? In the past it has always been a clubs choice (except Geelong) to sell games to other places.

I’ve asked you countless times and you have never once provided an answer but I will continue to ask the question: How do you make a fairer draw with the current teams located where they are?

Hawthorn and North fly because they CHOOSE to fly for the MONEY. They are paid very handsomely to sell home games to Tasmania.

The decade that was: Geelong Cats

Spot on. If you did a team of the first half and a team of the second half of the decade there wouldn’t be a whole lot of names in both.

*eye roll*

With that ‘logic’ every Victorian team should be making finals every single year … yet we know they don’t; therefore, you’re statement is proven inaccurate.

The decade that was: Geelong Cats

Equal most 18-21 year olds on the list in the league. Two first round picks this year, three next year.

Every team in the league loses a lot of talent and experience in a 5 year period.

The decade that was: Geelong Cats

You’ve perfectly summed up anon’s fence sitting position.

The decade that was: Geelong Cats

“But it would also see Geelong play 11 games at home, one intra-Victorian match and the rest interstate, like every other Non-Melbourne based club.”
And just where should Geelong, or any other Victorian team, play each other?

The decade that was: Geelong Cats

I agree, with the ‘go home’ factor bigger than ever, clubs should be looking in their own backyards first. Obviously if they rate someone much higher from elsewhere they should draft them but if rated nearly identical, go with local.

2019 AFL Draft: Club-by-club breakdown and review

What would you call a better fixture?

Tigers, Pies and Cats to hog the limelight as AFL unveils 2020 fixture

I don’t think he is worth pick 9 either. I was just pointing out using points value is a silly way of thinking of trades. The points system is highly flawed.

Dons’ delicate Daniher dance

You’re missing that pick 9 would have been in this years draft versus two picks in next years draft. Maybe there isn’t anyone they project to need points for next year? Maybe they are tired of ‘next year’?

Dons’ delicate Daniher dance

Points be damned. Would you be happy if your club had pick 9 and traded it for picks 24 and 42? I’d be livid.

Dons’ delicate Daniher dance

“If he left this year without a player (decent key forward) to replace him then 2020 would be a wasted season.”

Even if Joe comes back do you think he is enough to end the AFL’s longest finals winless streak? I honestly don’t see the Dons, without or without Daniher, being a whole lot better than they have been. Unless Worsfold suddenly comes up with a sustainable game plan it won’t matter.
