There are not enough fans. 8,000/10,000 per match against 50,000 does not bring in enough money. Membership numbers would be the same. Very low

It's time to restart the football economy

Start in April and play during the winter just like other football codes

I'm not sure how much more of the A-League I can take

“I’m looking forward to the rebuild of the League. I’m hoping it can be done quickly, but I’m braced for a couple of seasons”

That comment has been said for every year over the past 10 years.

A-League enters death spiral

Can we pay another club to take Tex? To me he’s a big head. All about him

Crows' resurgence to begin with 2020 AFL draft bounty

You can go to Subiaco oval. Just a school there now.

Here's where the 2020 AFL grand final should be held

With WA borders closed how would spectators get in? If a Vic side made the GF there would be no Victorian supporters allowed across. With 2 week Quarantine all other state visitors would stay in Perth hotels for 2 weeks prior, at their expense. $150/night x 14 = $2100, plus food, and that before buying a ticket and flights. So forget Perth

Then that makes A-League supporters whims then

Winter A-League survey: The results are in and not what you may have expected

Winter A-League survey: The results are in and not what you may have expected

FFA is such a disorganised rabble

Three A-League clubs stuck in Victoria after border closes

If pitch conditions are such a problem why not build soccer only stadiums.

Winter A-League survey: The results are in and not what you may have expected

Untill all players and staff are virus free for at least 2 months via weekly testing then no games be played.

Tottenham Hotspur receive positive COVID-19 test

The A-League should just cancel the remainder of the season and start fresh next season in April.

Is it any surprise that New South Wales will host the rest of the A-League season?

“ultimately mean a lower quality product on the field.”
Can’t see that happening. All ready low

A-League plans to resume in July

The big names of soccer of the 1980’s are pushing for playing football where it should be, in winter. Soccer in this country has had a good run of fresh air playing in the off season. Lets see how good and how much interest soccer in Australia has, playing in winter.

Bruce Djite: "The immediate future of Australian football is precarious"

Can players still use sand paper to shine the ball. LOL

COVID guidelines to alter cricket customs

IF A=League is played behind closed doors what difference will it matter. TV coverage will still be the same. Very few spectators in the background.

How will the A-League weather the coronavirus storm?

Professional? Not

Spurs and England defender shockingly storms the stands to confront fan after FA Cup loss

Was in the UK for the 2012 Olympics. Was on several channels of the BBC. Every sport was covered and many didn’t have a UK representative. Unbiased coverage unlike Ch 7. Also no ad breaks

Which sports are dying in Australia?

Soccer may have large number at very junior levels but is not holding true for higher levels. Many kids drop out of soccer like many other sorts at 16/20 as relationships come around, jobs and possible uni or tafe studies get in the way. Many kids then return to AFL

Which sports are dying in Australia?

No consideration to playing elsewhere untill other states have a stadium capable of holding 100,000 people. Only the MCG has that capacity.

No night grand final for AFL in 2020

Contracted to the MCG for many years. Most of us on here will be pushing up roses before that happens. There will be an AFL side in Tasmania, and a third side in Adelaide before that

No night grand final for AFL in 2020

Nemo goes on about a fan survey, but as usual fails to produce any proof.

The code wars are here, so let's have at it

” fudging participation numbers to try and get AIS funding; paying local councils under the table to quarantine suburban grounds so only Aussie Rules can be played on them”
Unless you can back up this statement with a link then this is fake news.

The code wars are here, so let's have at it

Yep we know how important the problems of soccer around the world is to Australia. That’s why it’s not of interest here.

The code wars are here, so let's have at it

AFL doesnt need to compete on a world stage, Our competition does well on it’s own. Who wants the problems that soccer has globally?
