as long as they are a fraction above rugby league then Huzzah! i say, pimms for all my good man.

Super League's new administration raises its head above the parapet

AFL gets a free ride in this country, you just have to accept it. I wouldn’t surprised if protecting AFL is part of national wide government charter.

Five scenarios for privately funding a stadium in Brisbane

The Raiders have been also rans for the best part of 20 years now. They were one dropped pass away from a grand final in 2016 but otherwise they haven’t done much for a long time. The Raiders and Brumbies also have to contend with the freezing cold winters which does play a part. If its a nice sunny sunday afternoon though the Raiders crowd will balloon which is why yhe summer season could be an advantage to a canberra A league team. But then I don’t know whether lots of people leave the city for the holidays….

Canberra minus cable television equals an invisible A-League

i was saying boo-urns…

Excuse me, are you saying 'boo' or 'boo-urns'?

Redcliffe is very much Rugby League demographic. A lot of kiwis and islanders on the peninsula. Also lots of retirees around there. Like all outer suburbs of Brissie, very working class.

The developments posing fresh challenges to A-League expansion

the netball was already popular up here in QLD and firebirds vs lightning was a big occasion before the AFLW came along. its only in Victoria where if you dont play afl then you don’t deserve any attention.

The rise and rise of women’s football

could be because a lot of boneheads from down south and afl media cheerleaders like to pretend women never played sport until AFLW came along…

The rise and rise of women’s football

A second Brisbane NRL team was always going to play out of Suncorp, so it doesn’t make any difference to their expansion plans.

The developments posing fresh challenges to A-League expansion

Titans finishing position in 2018 – 14th
Crowd average at Robina – 14125

Sharks finish position in 2018 – 4th
crowds average in the Shire – 12700

but by all means keep bashing the Titans…

Think relocation is a terrible idea? Let's do what we do with other terrible ideas: Try it out

its up to women to find their own niche though and play the game in a way thats different to the men but one that creates an exciting contest. Maybe some rules need to be customised for the women.

The best women's sports moments of 2018

i am talking about the entire central qld population is too spread out. Rocky doesn’t even have over 100k people. So you would be relying on fans from places like Mackay and Gladstone, maybe Bundy which are 100s of kms away.

50km isn’t too far but if you were going to relocate to a town along the qld coast, the least you could hope for was a nice white sandy beach on your doorstep.

Think relocation is a terrible idea? Let's do what we do with other terrible ideas: Try it out

The population is too small and spread out, there is a lack of sponsorship dollars and most players will not move to Rocky, it’s a horrible place with no beach close by and has hardly been developed since the 1950s. Can we please put this dumb idea to bed.

Cronk’s grand final performance or non-performance just showed how important it is to have a good organiser on the field in Rugby League. Probably one of the greatest things i’ve ever seen in Rugby League.

2018 in review: Rugby league

But this kind of stuff will always exist. People will always debate rules, sadly off field incidents will always happen and there will always be some controversy around coaches, players contracts, salary cap etc.

House in order for the NRL means all clubs financially stable and funding for all levels of the game. The other stuff cant be controlled.

Aussie Rules has a fundamental problem though that soccer, cricket and even League doesn’t have. There is no short form of the game where you can gather a few mates and play on some small patch of grass in the park. You can’t play proper aussies rules in a backyard. That’s why Aussies rules will never take off in countries that don’t have vast amounts of space.

Has globalisation helped or hampered Australian football?

yeah i hate that argument. People just need to accept teams like the Storm and Roosters have a superior club culture and hold themselves to a higher standard than some other clubs. They attract good players and surround the club with the best support staff, coaches, physios, dietitians, psychologists etc. They don’t put up with under performers or cancerous personalities.

A common-sense salary cap solution the NRL will never adopt

it’s time the NRL stripped all premierships dating back to 1998 on the basis of “well they musta cheated”

Don’t blame the NRL for your club’s bad deeds

funny how since the Storm scandal, that club has gone on to win 2 legitimate premierships and get record members and bigger crowds. The Eels have gone on to win a bunch of wooden spoons and get in trouble themselves with the salary cap. No sympathy for the Eels, they’re pathetic.

Despite what the gloom merchants say the Titans actually have good support in the SEQLD region. Mess with them and the Gold Coast is lost forever. They are well supported for a club 10 years old.

Confession of a Sharks tragic

plus they got Scomo as their number 1 fan, detestable club

i guess it could be argued that if the Broncos are cheating, they ain’t doing a very good job of it lol. No premierships since 2006.

I am guessing he means that the extra competitive environment of Sydney means teams are having to go outside the rules to get an advantage. Though I am not sure how that applies to the Flanno situation.

I don’t think you can use clubs that got rationalised during super league as guide for future expansion. The NRL has a lot more money now and has a better understanding of whats required to support an expansion club. If the A League can expand then the NRL should be able to, I realise the A League is doing so with private money.

I’m all for the NRL coming down hard on salary cap breaches. I think it’s a great message to send to the public that this sort of white collar fraud is not to be accepted. My problem is that I find it very hard to believe a team like the Broncos isn’t rorting the cap in some way as well and when you see which organisation has the biggest interest in the Broncos it makes you wonder how easy it would be covered up.

I don’t know about messing with the Tigers. They are still a big draw in Sydney and are capable of getting large crowds, unlike Sharks or Manly. Will be interesting to see how they go at the new western syd stadium.

NRL hands down massive punishment to Cronulla and Shane Flanagan
