How would you make AFL a less embarrassing looking game?

I think you are taking a very literal meaning. The discussion was around expansion outside traditional areas from rl. Well I would argue placing a team in Melbourne is not expansion. The game has not expanded outside its traditional areas and with afl expanding into non traditional areas it could be argued it is retracting.

To say rl has expanded but has been unsuccessful is an oxymoron ... they either have or haven't expanded therefore is contingent on success thereof.

If the afl placed a team in Wellington for 20 years and had no players from Wellington after that time and Aussie rules remained virtually non existent I would not say the game has expanded there.

See this is why you mob are considered morons .

Go check NO PLAYERS ..there's your first mistake .

& literal meaning or not .
You either expanded or you didn't .
The NRL expanded ..they put a team in Melb .
What is wrong with your brain ....expand means expand .
They expanded to VIC .
The debate isn't about how successful or not it is

That was never mentioned in his post
Only when I pulled him up about his bullshit did he start talking about how much of this or that is needed to be classed as expansion .
There is nothing like that attached to the expansion meaning .
As I keep saying & you're too fucking stupid to take in .

Expansion success ...stagnant ..or failure is a different argument .
Start a thread on it
But it's black & white as to wether the comp expanded .
It's no it's still in two states
Or yes they expanded to 3.....

Stop moving the goalposts to cover for your bullshitting mate .

If he could post something factual it would be a great help
if he posts an opinion ....then ...he could as most sensible people do say things like
IMO.
I Think
Maybe .

Not just a straight out bullshit statement

Only a simpleton would not know what expansion means. And in this case.......voila......the simpleton is Fred. Even fumblehouse calls their new teams 'expansion teams'. Melbourne Storm has clearly been another expansion team. But Fred seems unable to grasp this most basic of cognitive functions. Give it up Fred.....your reasoning is child like in it's stupidity. Please get Mrs Fred to help you with your posts.

It's hilarious .
In fumble world when a team is put in a new non heartland area..its expansion

When Rl does the same its not .
They really do live in an alternate reality .

Expansion is expansion ..there can be no arguments ..if you go somewhere New

Is expansion successful ...an entirely different argument

Yes... simple is as simple does and its name is Terry. What else does a failed publican do.

Anyway .... if after 20 years you consider hardly no one plays the game or cares less for the game as having expanded then well all power to you.


As I said we will have to agree to disagree.

Really? That's it? Personal insults? I expected better.

3 people have highlighted their views and because they don't agree with yours you resort to that.

Oh well..,, you must be the only soldier marching in synch.

Lol,personal insults
You just had a crack at Terry for being a failed Publican .

POT MEET KETTLE

As usual if it's from the RL side ..it's bad ..or wrong .
When it's from the afl side ..it's OK ..it's right

& you are still talking about a different topic than what I was having ago at dumbo#2 about .

You keep ignoring where I have constantly posted this is not about how successful or unsuccessful an expansion is .
That's not what he originally Posted
& have you checked about NO LOCAL PLAYERS .
You posted that ..yet now strangely have discarded that argument .

Touché on the first.


I think we have different concepts of expansion that is all and we will have to leave it at that.

Yes. I know there have been a couple who have come up through the local system in Victoria but it is so small to be irrelevant. I never said no players for vic I said if the afl had plonked a team in Wellington and had no players from Wellington that had come through the local league to go straight to afl.

As I said I think you can't have expansion without success ... they are symbiotic .... but that's my opinion.

See this is why you can't win any debate . You post something that's blatantly wrong .
When I correct you .
Suddenly the words NO PLAYERS has a different meaning .
No players means none

Yet suddenly the meaning is changed to a couple but that is irrelevant .

Do you fumblers gave any grasp of the English language & what words actually mean .

No players =0
A couple does not = 0

Lol Your opinion & what the word EXPANSION means are two different things
You fumblers seem to have a lot of problems with the Meaning of words .

but a small level of RL would have been present in Victoria well before the storm began in Melbourne. The question is, has the introduction of the storm made a difference. Well, so far it doesnt appear to have.

Fred your psychobabble bullshit is just that bullshit! Of course you can have good expansion and bad expansion. Just look at the AFL's expansion it's been a nightmare on the other hand the NRL's has been an outstanding success!

Early 80's Canberra and Illawarra. Illawarra may have merged with Saints but both expansion clubs are doing well.

Late 80's Newc, Bris, G Cst, - all doing well.

Mid 90's NZ - Nth Qld - both doing great

Late 90''s Melb - great


Lions, GWS, Suns :(/ :x :x And the Swans(south Melbourne) better hope SBS don't bring back replays of Iron Chef or there gone to!


Rugby League, the dominant force in Australian sport! :cheers:
