Lol
Lol lol
Terry here we have another example of someone who's life is obsessing over me using the same tactic to avoid the harsh reality of racism in fumbleball .
Two fall back positions when reality encroaches on the bubble.
First is say this place means nothing..he just posts when bored or going to the toilet.
Second is to deflect with rantings about me & my life .....
Seems one of us lol has a very very very unhealthy interest in another posters life.

Lol & what is really hilarious is having a go at someone for posting about problems in a sport on a forum called the FIGHT CLUB where you argue sport v sport .

Maybe there's a forum out there where his feelings won't get hurt when's something is said about Aflol that he doesn't like.


LIC self ownage
Lol $10 NRL tickets.$10 NRL tickets .How pathetic is that ?
Crickets chirping after I post $5 AFlol tickets .
Self ownage ..no one does it better .

I think they will play it. I suspect, they will see how many other games have to be postponed and maybe add an extra week or mid week.

I note that had Conner been playing nrl he wouldn’t have been detected as asymptomatic. Maters was saying on off siders that nrl only test where it is indicated but afl 2 weekly apparently?

See this Covid thing has claimed the televising of rl state comps. 9 no longer going to show them. Obviously part of the sweetener to the fta deal to go through.

On that, wonder what the afl gave up. Live matches in to qld and nsw would have been one I thought but haven’t seen anything on it.

Optus has a bigger capacity but the Gabba is looking more and more likely.

NSW is now as unlikely as VIC


There are lies, damn lies and ratings.

It will not be at the mcg. Good opportunity to take it interstate. GABBA seems to be the front runner. Maybe they’ll wait to see who ends up in the last two weeks of finals. Big thing will be allowed crowd numbers.

I see QLD has put in a bid, if money is behind this bid, that is a disgrace.

QLD saved the AFL SEASON pretty much..

AFL should no questions ask be giving QLD the GRAND FINAL> if not played at the MCG>

OPTUS STADIUM is the only other option i would say.

I’m still hopeful Sydney is in with a chance with the biggest stadium capacity outside of Melbourne. Our COVID-19 numbers are still very low too considering the size of our population in NSW and sport continues each weekend from junior sports to the professional codes eg: NRL, A-League, Rugby and the AFL until recently.

Would love to go to a AFL GF in my home city, even if my team was not involved. Would be huge for Sydney if the Giants make it again and ANZ Stadium was to be the GF venue.

from a growing the game point of view and exposure, Sydney would 100% be a lock.

i am just not sure if crowds will be available to capacity in just over 2 months time..

rugby league games are still at 25% capacity lock out.
and this was put in place before the cases starting coming back
from Mexico to Sydney.

Still plenty of time before they will lock it in though

AFL announced today a suspected $400 million Revenue loss for 2020

I wonder what it will hit once you add in the 18 clubs

the Soft Cap is also expected to be cut by $3 Million for 2021
