Your opinion is just that. I trust the marketing department of the AFL. Media stories alone have paid for his contract many times over.

Trusting the marketing department with the credibility of the game is a schoolboy error Xman.

And those media stories may well turn quite sour in a years time. I tend to disagree with the old saying any media is good media. Kim Duthie is just one example which says different.

As answered in the other thread, there is little difference between the recruitment of the these RL stars and the poaching of Gaelic football players. This has been an accepted experiment for decades ever since Jim Stynes became a champion AFL footballer after being recruited as a project.

As answered in the other thread, there is a massive diff between the recruitment of Khunt and the gaelic players.

1: $$$

2: Significant unwarranted game time to justify the $$$ spent.

3: The prior skill levels of the players.

Get a grip on your own favourite sport Xman, sheesh.

ps Xman, you're an idiot.

Rubbish! #-o

The cash is for off field contributions. The skill level is no different to a Gaelic footballer who has played his life with a round ball and never tackled a soul in his life.

As i said, projects with elite players from other sports is not unusual in the AFL and is an acceptable part of recruiting.

Now off you go with your tail between your legs! :lol:

Another cameo just to say;
Xman, he wouldn't know how to walk off with his tail between his legs. He's too dumb to realise he's being owned on game knowledge.

And just while I'm here - to "justanotherleaguefan", showing off about seeing O/S sport is nothing. What counts is numbers, and I'm willing to bet I've seen way more games of football than you have of thugby. And within that much more variety. Tell me - how many different regional venues in NSW and Queensland have you been to? I'll bet it's nowhere near as many as I have in Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.

Ah, yes we are talking about aspects of the game that involve game knowledge. Like previous recruitment tactics, player performance etc...

How many interchanges/substitutions per game for NRL vs AFL? from www.afl.com.au it is as follows.
Cap of 80 interchanges per match (including changes at breaks).

"Interchange numbers per club have doubled from an average of 58 per game in 2007, to 116 per game in 2010," Anderson said. "In 2003, clubs were interchanging players at a rate of 22 per match, less than 20 per cent of current totals.

Rugby League has 10 per match from 4 players on the bench.

Of what? Everyone knows the AFL have more rotations. Just like we know our players cover far greater distances at a greater speed and intensity, and for a longer game! :wink:

''Physically, AFL is a two-hour running game where two things happen,'' says Gibbs. ''Firstly, the total distance you run is further than in an NRL game. Secondly, you run at a higher intensity during the game. AFL is a man-on-man game. You have to go with your opponent.
