Interesting.
And dodgy all right. Sorry North.

Port Adelaide must be considered a 2020 AFL premiership threat

I thought it was a big forward.

Brodie Grundy won't be a free agent after signing massive contract extension with Collingwood

Well said.
$1 mill a year for 7 years sounds risky for a ruckman. I wouldn’t want Richmond paying that. Collingwood have put all their eggs in one basket. Might cause unrest with his teammates. Collingwood will pay in years to come as he and the list ages. (etc)

Brodie Grundy won't be a free agent after signing massive contract extension with Collingwood

Was a genuine comment (the first half anyway). It was reported in November that Collingwood had agreed to 7 years which is why I thought it was done, but I guess there was more to agree on. Can’t say I was interested enough to pay closer attention so my fault.

I thought he signed a 7 year extension last year. Took a while to agree to terms then. Did they have to wait for another new footy manager to be cool with it first?

Exactly!

When was Geelong founded?

I mentioned two?

He showed a good leap in last year’s prelim just before half time. Hasn’t been seen since.

Patrick Dangerfield's vertical leap is just ridiculous

Do you mean Mason Cox? LOL. Buddy’s best had long gone and Kennedy has slipped too.
Cameron is the only one you could mount a case for.

A new season offers second chances for 2019's recruiting flops

I can’t imagine the JLT would turn much of a profit.

Blues lose Curnow for start of AFL season

One of them was Melbourne and they finished bottom at age 150. LOL
Then again….Geelong were Premiers a year later.

If Taylor kicked the goal… who knows what chain of events that would have lead to? Maybe if Dangerfield didn’t stage so badly for his goal he might have played a better second half. Perhaps whatever Dusty said to him after that played on his mind.
We do know what actually did happen though. Richmond kicking 8 goals to 2 in the second half.

Predicting the 2020 AFL season

Three not four. You are overstating the Giants achievements.

AFL world in shock as Alex Rance announces immediate retirement

What percentage of Tests are actually gripping anyway? It can’t be that high.
I found the empty Perth Stadium pretty depressing viewing despite the cricket and I think you underestimate the impact of atmosphere for TV viewers. If you want to change the Boxing Day venue, Adelaide or Sydney would win hands down over Perth.

The Boxing Day Test is overrated

Yes, the fixture certainly favours Geelong, Hawthorn and North over other Victorian clubs for Home and Away, but that’s just how it is.

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

You could say the same (made a GF once and done nothing since) about Freo. There will always be a bottom team or two. Eliminate the current worst and you’ll have another to eliminate in a few years until there is nothing left.
Off field success (and support) is more important for long term sustainability. It is why Carlton survives now whereas Fitzroy didn’t in 1996.

What the AFL must sort out by the end of the next decade

What MCG corporates? There is no such thing.

It was a roar, not the song that was supposedly played and I don’t think it contributed to the 89 point victory.
David Koch and you were the only people who noticed. Can you tell me if it was after every goal or just a few because I didn’t notice once?
This is the same David Koch who expects Port to be able to play INXS before their away games in China and even kicked up a fuss when Gold Coast dared wear red in the first China match which Gold Coast was the home team for. Hypocrisy.

So, obviously if you even up travel by giving more home games to some teams at the expense of others, those teams get an unfair advantage.
Yes, Richmond do get a home ground advantage about 6 times a year. Their other home games are neutral or not at their home ground.

Spot on. And Port have had a lot of NT games as the away team where they have played more than their opponent.

You write this on the assumption that travel is the only thing that matters. But what about the advantage of playing in your home ground that the opposition is not familiar with?

I’m very happy to go to Tassie, when they get their own team.
Actually Richmond have 3 times for the highest ever crowd at York Park and the 2 highest ever crowds in Hobart.
However 20000 in York Park surely costs a lot when you’d get 2.5 to 3 times as many at the MCG and that is the problem, as I am sure you are well aware.
However I do agree with you (see it is possible), WA teams in Tassie is unreasonable. Well Launceston anyway because of no direct flights.

And that’s why they won the Premiership by 89 points.

What a load of rubbish. 4 teams. Seriously.
