Re: Afl in China - 2019

AFLs attempts in China would have to be the biggest sporting flop of all time.
Covid was a good excuse for them to quit while they were failing miserably over there.

Remember all the crowing from AFL about it. What a joke.

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

No, look at the history of all football games, They all have some form of “behind” the goals, Australian rules (VFL) introduced the point for a ball going behind the goals to reduce the of number drawn matches in 1897. Well after the rules mentioned behind posts. Soccer introduced kick outs and goa...

Re: What if the unthinkable ?

If the nrl ratings started to turn south ... let’s say streaming takes off or people start turning off ... where would the nrl get revenue from? The afl have various revenue streams and whilst ratings and broadcast rights are a major source of revenue I feel they could cope or survive with a drop i...

Sunshine State Dolphins is a great name. Hope they use that. Has an NFL vibe about it.

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

This would allow for only the best kickers to score. With no consolation points for poor skills when people miss a shot at goal.

Re: Toronto Wolfpack

Is nearly impossible to run a competition with overseas teams at the moment. Especially newly established teams and with the way the economy is with covid.

Will be no expansion for Rugby League or any sports until covid is no longer a danger. Especially internationally.

Re: How would you make AFL a less embarrassing looking game?

NRL is embarassing because of all the disgusting things the players do during the game. You see we don't have players deliberately wetting their pants when they are about to start playing. We don't have players drinking their own pee in videos. The structure of the AFL sport is what is very embarra...

Re: Global Warming, Fact or Fiction?

Fact.....I’m surprised anyone still questions it. Probably was warming naturally as it has done in the past, but humans have sped the process up alarmingly. I first noticed it many years ago when my native plants started flowering earlier every season. Makes me laugh how so many people from Melbour...
