Fewest players born overseas.
Most racist incidents involving fans.
Eddie McGuire.
Could you cite some references ? I’d love to know how you came up with the 89 percent ?

Re: Roosters bring AFL star out of retirement

As said. It was a marketing ploy that went bad for the afl. Hunt was okay but at any other club wouldn’t have got a chance to develop. If the nrl wanted to try a similar gimmick and had the money to waste ... I’m sure there would be multiple players to choose from and develop. Hunt himself named Gar...

Re: Roosters bring AFL star out of retirement

So a game for uneducated working class that requires a ball to be thrown 10 metres, very little aerobic fitness, no requirement to get rid of the ball when tackled, and no pressure on the catcher of the ball as skilful . British bulldogs with a ball.

Re: Roosters bring AFL star out of retirement

I’m sure an afl player can run in a straight line, catch a ball with no pressure from opposition delivered from 10 metres away with synthetic grip in it, and skirt around a few fat fellas. And if he gets tackled he is allowed to keep the ball with no pressure to dispose of it ..... real hard game. A...

Re: Roosters bring AFL star out of retirement

Just read the first section and what a ridiculous proposition. If a Gary Ablett wanted to come over in his peak and they could throw the money his way to make it worth his while ... then he would do so easily. He would have to bulk up a bit but would fine. No question.

Re: 2020 Battle of the Codes .

Doubt it. Rl is virtually non existent at grassroots outside qld and New South Wales so it would take a lot of work to build from that low base. It has gained some interest re say the storm in Victoria I think but grassroots ... it is miniscule. Perth does slightly better but still minor. The afl ha...

Re: Roosters bring AFL star out of retirement

The nrl don’t pay as high a wage as afl. You think the nrl are going to pay over for an elite afl player ... line well overs. So a player on a million dollar contract would need to be paid substantially over that to entice them to move. Would they nrl pay the a”marketing” component of that figure. I...

If the nrl had the money to pay a elite afl player we may see it .... but yes that is unlikely .

Re: Soo revival .....

That’s a good idea I reckon. East v West. Do you think they would try that in the nrl as well one day?

Re: Roosters bring AFL star out of retirement

Just a gimmick ... he’s still fit and can kick a ball. And at his age the the best he could get is an nrl wage lol.
