Re: Would AFL be better if they got rid of the 2 extra side goals?

The point is a marvellous thing in afl that makes the game so enticing to many .... maybe it was inadvertent or maybe by design, but to me it is simple genius. It rewards the dominant team whilst also punishing them. I like it consciously I suspect it adds to others excitement serendipitiesly

Re: WOMENS AFL & NRL

Well i was reading the paper having my smashed Avo and coffee with the Mrs and I am pretty sure there was a spread in the paper about the Lions and their prep for 2020 - had a photo of two of the players on the bus looking back - add to that a few other articles here and there and it is hardly invis...

Re: WOMENS AFL & NRL

Well maybe in Sydney but as you point out... not in Brisbane or mr Gold Coast as you confirmed. Also on the news as well. But afl i suspect is far more engrained here I guess than in sydney.

Re: WOMENS AFL & NRL

The Suns were really really bad. The ball movement by Brisbane was pretty good...skill and game awareness from them was vastly improved. Re: invisible...plenty of press in the papers .. a page or maybe 2 lift out on the lions on the weekend for starters. Plenty on the suns also on gc. Nothing great ...

Re: Would AFL be better if they got rid of the 2 extra side goals?

It’s a different game indeed. It’s okay if you don’t like it ... that’s your choice. Millions of Aussies love our national game ... some like you don’t. It all comes down to preference. There are many sports I don’t get into as well . What is good is the diversity of spurts we do have in this countr...

Re: NRL EXPANSION

Same with tassie for the afl ... plenty of support but not the financial clout I’d say. Re: expansion ..I think they really need to grow the game in Australia outside of nsw (act) and qld. But that’s just me. And I think the have done perth well or better than they did with Storm by growing grass ro...

Re: AUSTRALIAN CRICKET NEWS / BIG BASH MENS / WOMENS - TV Ratings & Crowds

I think tennis needs a version of 20/20. Games are way too long. Some ideas : get rid of the double fault. Two points for an Ace...go from from 15 to 40 for instance. Power play where the serve square box is enlarged ... maybe different coloured lines for power play . Maybe even teams .... where you...

Re: NSW QLD CUP

Yes, I miss going to the footy and seeing the reserves play and even the under 18s.

What happens with Storm on game day?

Re: NRL EXPANSION

Whilst I applaud this move, adding an extra team to an already established nrl heartland instead of growing the game in other Australian states, is not really that adventurous. So they’re looking to grow the game in Brisbane? In saying that, Brisbane does need another side... should have had one 20 ...

Re: Global Warming, Fact or Fiction?

Worst that can happen is the world is a little cleaner and a little nicer place to live if they are wrong.
