I think the AFL knocking back $800,000 (I know they don’t get it all) indicates that they are not overly worried about money...or a least losing it.

We can say what about their reduction in staff, but they have indicted For some time that they thought there was a lot of “fat” at the clubs and in admin.

May just have taken the opportunity.

Although they copped a bit at the start of COVID, I believe they have managed Better than the other codes. Being nearly national and not being international has helped....and may help in the future too.
When did this take place?

You need to pay more attention....
I think there would be public outcry if this was to occur, and that is why the AFL did not allow this.
advantaged West Coast too much

Quite often there is no player in half the ground, something you didn’t see a lot of previously until the last quarter when teams were defending a narrow lead.
I’m sure some coach will come up with a work around advantage, they always do, but they should hurry.

I think reducing player numbers would be beneficial on several levels.

I've been following and going to the footy for a while now and players being in a quarter of the ground has been a long time issues for many a year. Hence they brought in the 6 rule at start and restart of play after a goal and they played around in practice matches at doing such at each restart. Been happening for years and for a while game - not just last quarter.
hey Fred, by memory how long do you recan this has been occurring ? Players flooding the defence and in around the ball.

there is no doubt about it that it has effected the game from a viewing point of view.

(abit like rugby League with the Wrestling ruck and Defence tactics)

Been going on a while. I can remember being at games and pointing it out to my son ... many years ago when he was younger. Pretty much a quarter of the ground. Gee you could go back to Pagan”s paddock with Carey but at least 10 years I would say. Basically positions as they are outlined are irrelevant.

Well in the old days there was no way a forward would be leaving the forward line let alone venturing into the backline. So people used to play to their position... but yeah maybe some mandating wouldn’t hurt.

From 11/9/20
“And give potential for an increase in TV income.
Of course the broadcasters that do not rely on ad revenue may have ideas of their own.
CBS that own 10, have neglected the ptv arm, recently announced they are redoing the whole thing, CBS Rejuvenated themselves by investing heavily in sport.
Disney: well they own a lot of sport.
Amazon want more subscribers in oz, and that’s an opportunity, out of the PTV that I subscribe to, too many, I find them the cheapest and the best, adding $2 a month, or even a week....well.”

It begins

https://www.smh.com.au/sport/rugby-unio ... 55zcr.html

“Amazon, which last week secured the rights to a one-off Eight Nations tournament in Europe, previously declined to comment on whether it was involved in the local tender process. However industry sources since told The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age that they were interested, but is it unclear whether they intend to put in a formal bid. Optus was previously considered the front-runner for the rights to the rugby union but did not express a formal interest in the revised broadcast rights package when it was released last month”

And CBS, who owns 10, just announced a complete revamp (Of the 1st revamp) of 10’s PTV streaming arm to broaden its footprint in Australia.


There are lies, damn lies and ratings.
