Re: Just Wow!

I'm surprised they didn't go for a best of three for the AFL grand final this year given the compromised season and given they were wanting to try new things. I think the best of three concept works best when each side plays each other once.

Re: Just Wow!

at this point in time NSW will allow the Grand final to be capped at 40k in 84k stadium. QLD is allowing 30k for Grand Final in a 43k Stadium. With Social distancing remaining the same in both states and rules. This does not make sense at all. Does the GABBA hold 43000... must be the standing room ...

Re: Fight Club - Football TV Ratings

Do you think that rating are impacted by the large crowds or the lack thereof? If you are getting say 500000 going to games each week then there is likely to be several people who have set top boxes in that crowd figure. Let’s say a game at the G pulls in 80000 .. now in metro Melbourne there would...

Re: Fight Club - Football TV Ratings

Well yes... possible. I course the converse is when there is no lock down that ratings are negatively impacted due to large crowds the afl gets.

Re: COVID-19 Affects it will have on Australian footy codes

Well in the old days there was no way a forward would be leaving the forward line let alone venturing into the backline. So people used to play to their position... but yeah maybe some mandating wouldn’t hurt.

Re: Shorter Quarters making the ugly game even uglier!

Doubt it... the afl home and away competition will crap it in over the nrl home and away. It will even beat the arl state of origin. I think the afl will also beat the finals of either Comp as well. This is how it will be.. AFL will win the H&A and finals. Once SOO is added to list. NRL will win ov...

Re: COVID-19 Affects it will have on Australian footy codes

Been going on a while. I can remember being at games and pointing it out to my son ... many years ago when he was younger. Pretty much a quarter of the ground. Gee you could go back to Pagan”s paddock with Carey but at least 10 years I would say. Basically positions as they are outlined are irreleva...

Re: COVID-19 Affects it will have on Australian footy codes

Watching a bit this weekend and there is a lot more flooding. Not exactly packs but a lot more players surrounding the ball players resulting in a lot more tackles, handballs and small kicks. Quite often there is no player in half the ground, something you didn’t see a lot of previously until the l...
