agreed I would have Perth in 2028 and PNG 2029/2030

Re: The Dolphins ..2nd year blues or finals

Re: 20th AFL Team - Expansion

the AFL would rather LOSE 30million a year than pull the Giants..
and why they can afford it they will continue to do so..

Logistically AFL only have a few options of expansion

Bunbury / Busselton as 1 team
Darwin
Canberra

All small regional bases.

Canberra looks the winner

Re: Footy Crowds - 2024

Its not often I defend the fumbling game but I think this attendance is something of an outlier. It was between a Melb team coming last and an Adelaide team under performing. Neither side would have much of a following in little Tassie. Once a Tassie side enters the comp (if it ever does) the local...
