Buisnesses lay off workers all the time when income falls without blinking. Its not unusal. They also don’t pay kids their super and under pay their staff. claim their losses against the tax payers and keep all their wealth when the buisness goes belly up. Then phoenix and do it all again. It to late to pray for that Moose

The six AFL clubs that could go to the wall

Ross is struggling to be relevant.

Ross Lyon calls for the Gold Coast Suns to be scrapped amid AFL's financial crisis

If the AFL want players to take an 80% cut. Gilligan and the other managers should do the same. I heard player have already agreed to 50% while Gilligan takes 20% cut. He should lead where he wants others to follow.

Collingwood are in the right position. Sydney on the other hand. This is what I was referring to and the biggest margin was the other point

2020 AFL Power Rankings: Round 1

AD , I am pretty sure Collingwood did not have the biggest win of the round. The biggest win was by the team you have in sixth place behind a very average Sydney.

The highlight of the round is that Port will be top for the next 10 weeks

Six talking points from AFL Round 1

@Grinner Most peolpe who grew up in post WW2 Australia have had it easy relative to those who experienced the great recession or third world poverty. Your assumption that you will get to watch the young suffer may be hubris before a fall.

AFL to be played behind closed doors amid coronavirus fears

I’m with you Mike. The most valuable player to his team is Giannis. If they don’t get to finnish the season it will all be nothing though. What a bummer for the Bucks i was certain this was the year for them to win it.

LeBron James cannot win the NBA's MVP award

Marshall’s arms and legs look considerably bigger this year. His Chest hasn’t filled out but with skinny tall lads that is the last thing to develope. Next off season he could turn into a full size unit. Lienert has kicked goals every time i have seen him play. Is he really a forward. They always call him a backman. Burton is very skilled and makes good decisions. DBJ is a ripper, love his tenacity.

Power down Dogs in pre-season seesaw

Most media i have heard say 10th to 12th. Is that really hype.

Power storm into Round 1

If you think the only improvement since Buds arrival has been Giannis getting better then you haven’t been watching them. The whole article is just wishful thinking on your part. What if what if what if. Do you not think smaller franchises should have success. Very negative perspective , there are so many positives about the Bucks you have brushed over.

The clock is ticking for the Milwaukee Bucks and Giannis Antetokounmpo

You got me. I’m a two week tennis fan.

Hot takes from the tennis

I agree with all six points especially re the doubles malarchy. And yes i to like Nick, he is the most interesting person in tennis. He is honest and not scared of saying what he really thinks. I find our buisness and political leaders are far more distasteful. Nick is a beacon of integrity compared to the tax avoiders and their cronies. I wish you all the best Nick and enjoyed your article The Crowd.

Yes coaching is our achilles heel. And forward line.

Port Adelaide must be considered a 2020 AFL premiership threat

My son plays basketball and got me into watching NBA 5 yrs ago. I picked the Bucks to follow because my son showed me a highlights package of their new player from Greece. It turned out he is pretty good. Thanks for your stats re def and off efficiency i did not know that. I really like the new coach too. He has noticeably changed them even to my inexperienced eyes.

Joe Ingles is slowly finding his place in Utah's awkward puzzle

Hi Mushi. Yeah it’s hard work posting sometimes to. I wrote a longer reply but its gone missing. The gist of it was who do you go for and who will win.

Yeah the forward line is a worry. If Dixon breaks down we don’t have one. Regardless of weather it’s list or coach or both what i am looking forward too is that there Will be change. The worst case senario for me is if we sneak into the eight, get bailed out early and the coach stays. I would not be keeping him unless he pulls off a miracle.

Seven big questions for the AFL in 2020

I’m more than fine with the backs. Burton, DBJ, Clurey, Jonas, Hartlett and Westhoff. The midfield is faster and more skilled now with Houston, Rozee, Duursma, Butters and Drew all added last year. The inside mids like Wines, SPP, Rockliff, Boak and Ebert are all excellent ball getters. The Forward line has the parts but looks unassembled. Dixon spent last year coming back after breaking his leg. He is important for us directionally. Robby Gray is our small foward and wise head in that part of the ground. After that its harder to know. Marshall is still young and has had some very heavy set backs but i think he will have a great year. Amon had a good year just gone. Ladhams looks promising. Other young players i like are Bonner, Farrell and Lienert. Our depth players are serviceable but recycled, Watts, Motlop, Sutcliffe, Mayes, McKenzie. The new players this draft seem like good picks but don’t they always. I personally like the list i am weary of the coaching and selections.

Seven big questions for the AFL in 2020

Re Port
Its not unrealistic to expect a coach to have a team in finals contention when he has been there eight years. Being the twelfth oldest list is not going to be enough of an excuse to save Ken if finals are not achieved this year. The list is not the problem it’s the lack of originality and alteratives coming from the coaches play book. Port maybe inconsistent but we are also predictable. Both Hinkley and Voss lack imagination. By the end of season we will have either a new game plan or a new coaching group.

Seven big questions for the AFL in 2020

Balanced side, MVP in top form, 18 wins on the trot, finals experience, great coach, good team spirit, no serious injuries so far. Not a sure thing but nothing is. No one seems to coment on here so i just threw a line in the water. Who do you think will be the champs Josso?

It’s the year of the Bucks. Forget the rest. ????

Reasons to not have the test in Perth. Exorbitant prices for food and poor service. Over priced pubs with no atmosphere. WA is hardly welcoming to ‘Eastern staters’. If you are not from here they don’t really want you here. Melbourne on the other hand is a very cosmopolitan city with great food and service, and welcoming to visitors. The cricket pitch is what it is, just play on it.

Why can’t Perth hold the Boxing Day Test?

What kind of lowlife have you become Kane Cornes? A poisonous slug by the sound of it. Young people have free will and petty tyrants should keep their mouths shut. Cornes has put his status as an idiot beyond doubt.

Kane Cornes goes after young Sun for choosing to stay on the Gold Coast

Is Pickett in that bracket Brendon? I don’t know him but uncle Byron was just that type.
