Re: It's time to say we've had enough ads!

It's time for all footy fans to get together and put an end to the cancerous growth of ads. It has ruined the viewing experience. We need a voice and we deserve the right to express it. Would they listen if we requested the ability to speak up on the field on match days? How much do they really car...

Yes, I would say a success by anyone's measure. For me, Samoa getting to the final added a little something.

hopefully more games on the main channel - I think when it is mainly on the main channel then we can start to talk about profile rising.

Re: Rugby League WORLD CUP

I see Samoa is in the final - saw a Samoan flag out a car window last night. Who else has a little bit of wanting Samoa to win? got to love an underdog - and Aussies winning was to be expected somewhat and a loss will mean nothing really to them - however, a win for Samoa would mean so much to their...

Re: So the AFL is copying the NRL again and wanting to do a Magic Round .

It would be folly to not do something because another code did it first - if it is a better way or a good idea - why would you not do it?

Would be interesting if SoO was trademarked. Don't think they could copyright it per se but could trademark it?

Why not - RL have been using State of Origin for years and this was an Aussie rules concept.

Re: So the AFL is copying the NRL again and wanting to do a Magic Round .

1. not true 2. true - so hence low crowds at some games. I personally went to some Collingwood games. 3. We agree, that Magic round in Brisbane would definitely get people from interstate - adding to the local support. 4. I am pretty sure they only got back to full capacity for the grand final. I we...

Re: AFL announces 7 year, 4.5billion (642m pa) media deal

Maybe the AFL could bring in the new idea of State of Origin ............

NRL never claim to have Origin First..

Victoria Media are all over it, like it is Ground Breaking Idea

Re: So the AFL is copying the NRL again and wanting to do a Magic Round .

Gabba and Gold Coast had so many games that year.. in the not effected State of QLD 90% of games were empty. (if i were the AFL i would play MAGIC in Sydney) 1. 90 percent were not empty. 2. People couldn't travel to QLD from interstate. 3. People still concerned with Covid 4. I believe limits stil...

Re: So the AFL is copying the NRL again and wanting to do a Magic Round .

The Gabba had a magic round for about a year in 2020. It was because of Covid & no one hardly went to most of the games. I don't see how that would change in 2023 for a magic round as not many people really follow the footy in Brisbane other some Lions games. You'd be surprised - I think if it ...

Re: So the AFL is copying the NRL again and wanting to do a Magic Round .

I think it needs a balance - you want it where it will be well attended - but also the coin from government is good. So I think for point 1 I would rule out Sydney as whilst people may travel you also need a decent local support - more so than Sydney currently has. Will people want to go to Adelaide...

Unless they do it over a long weekend maybe. I don’t think Sydney will work either - could work in Brisbane /Gold Coast
