So you favour a conference where the 10 vic sides never leave the state… that would be a complete farce.
How could you possibly justify the AFL as a national competition when 10 teams play every game in the same city until finals?
I don’t think the conference system works for AFL, it’s a silly idea.
20 teams, 20 rounds, play everyone once and your main rivals twice (the second being a standalone rivalry round). H&A swaps every year.
That’s probably the most fair outcome we could have.

How the AFL bringing back Origin could fix the league's biggest inequality - and why now is the perfect time

Whilst I agree, Sydney also showed serious quality in that game. Quality that I haven’t seen from Carlton all year.

Given the blues we’re lucky to get away with a win vs Freo, whilst Sydney dominated – I’m very confident Sydney are a far better side and will win by 4-5 goals.

I’d be knocking every premiership off up until the point West Coast and Adelaide joined the league and it officially became the AFL.
That’s when AFL premiership history starts.
All the premierships before that moment are VFL premierships and belong in the VFL history books.

Yeah it infuriates me when Walters does it as well…

It’s not just Freo.
Sydney are comfortably the best team in it at the moment and barely rate a mention. Tim spent most of his time talking about Collingwood, Carlton and Essendon.

Will Schofield said that in 2018 WCE had rings made themselves anyway.
If clubs want them, make one yourself for your team to commemorate the win – there’s nothing stopping them.

Yep. Premierships from the late 1800s when University were still in the competition simply do not count.
That’s a different competition.

Yeah Giants have gone off the boil a bit.

I mean it would annoy the vic centric media (quite like most of the vic fans on here – you guys aren’t really the issue).
I’d love it to be Freo too, but I’m not seeing it – not consistent enough. Our best is good, but our worst is garbage.
Well end up either just inside or just outside the 8.

Ah yes, no other team has ever had injuries in the history of the sport before Richmond did!

Yeah I thought you were having a better run of it but that fell apart last week.
Yeo was never going to see a season out, but losing Waterman when he’s finally clicked is just cruel.

What state does Tim come from may I ask?

The question should be why wouldn’t the Swans win?
I struggle to find an answer to that. If (as seems likely yet again) it’s not going to be Freo, I’ll be very happy for it to be the Swans.
All bases covered, some fantastic players (Chad Warner went to my school).

Swans will belt the Blues – best team in it. Blues only hope is the umpires intervening yet again.

The Dogs just don’t make sense as a football club.

Not huge shame in losing to the flag favourites and best team in the comp right now – Sydney will be tough to beat.

Six Points: AFL must act on Cameron concussion farce, 2024's best game, and the end of days arrives in Victoria

Yeah I go as hard at them as anyone. I can’t this week. Tough circumstances – a few GWS guys struggled too.
However, they need to regroup and be better for St Kilda – hopefully things have settled a bit.
Rip Cam.

If there’s one week to give them an out it’s that one. I’m nowhere near as forgiving as Don – but it’s bloody tough to play a game less than 24 hours after a close mate and former teammate passes away.
A bit of context please.

Six Points: AFL must act on Cameron concussion farce, 2024's best game, and the end of days arrives in Victoria

Ah yes keep being Victorian centric. Sydney are a far better team than Essendon, Collingwood or Carlton and yet we spend half the article discussing how the so called ‘big 3’ have returned.
Don’t West Coast have more members than any of them?
Hope it’s a Sydney GWS Grand Final just to annoy the Vics!

As much as the Bombers are playing great footy, I’m still reserving my judgement – they are kind of like the girl that constantly flirts with you but never actually agrees to meet up and go on a proper date (this may or may not be a personal experience metaphor..).
They haven’t won a final for a very very long time, and hence whilst this form looks great – let’s see where they are in August.

Footy Fix: Essendon have arrived... and it's time we all started getting absolutely terrified

Really tragic situation. Seemed an incredibly popular and much loved figure at the club. Thoughts with his family, friends and the Freo and GWS clubs who will all be affected by this.
Good effort by Freo to even play last night – a few senior guys were visibly upset fighting back tears.

This is purely a tragic circumstance of a guy that had both mental health and health struggles. Freo supported him and he was much loved by the Dockers community, as seen by the emotion from Fyfe and Pearce.
Sometimes things are just tragic.

Completely the opposite actually – learn what happened before you comment pure ignorance.
Cam was supported by Freo for years – in fact he asked them to leave his contract.
It’s a tragic situation but it is not Fremantle’s fault, he was clearly much loved there and the loss will be felt hard.
