Remember, junior games have less players & can be made up with 12 on 12. But don't let me explain anglofl rules to you.
What the fuck would you know? again, your making assumptions about shit you know nothing about. amd see what happens next time you post ANY article with ANY figures about the NRL in it.

You league folks cite Masters and other league columnists like they are fucking holy writ but as soon as its about the AFL it just cant be fucking true can it.
I'm in Sydney & don't see the growth melbourne media insist is happening. Where are you located?

Lol this is the test of that article
What a bunch of entitled southern fuckheads .
Trying to ruin another Cricket pitch with their demands
Cricket is probably the true national sport of this country & fumbles is trying to wreck one of our few remaining pitches .

CAts Steve ..this is one of the reasons why people north of the vic border have a disdain for your sport .
The we want this fuck other sports attitude

I doubt you will take that on board .....





The war of codes between the AFL and Cricket Australia is set to continue, with former premiership Lion Jonathan Brown saying the AFL are treated like "second-class citizens" in the northern states.
Both Cricket Australia, as well as Cricket NSW, and the AFL have been at war over the cricket pitches at the SCG.
The AFL have called for the SCG to adopt drop-in wickets, with the SCG Trust, set to look into the merit of bringing in drop-in pitches.
However, Cricket Australia (CA) boss Kevin Roberts rejected the calls for a drop-in wicket, saying that ripping up "arguably the most unique pitch in world cricket" would not be in the interest of cricket, or sports fans in general.
Brown, who played 256 AFL games for Brisbane, claimed that the AFL were not treated as fairly as other sports up in the northern states.
"Look at all the empty stands when the cricket's on and the packed stands when the footy's on," Brown told Fox Footy's On The couch




"AFL is second-class citizens north of the border. That's what it comes back to - it's as simple as that.
"If it was rugby league that was the only winter code sport played on the SCG, I guarantee you there'd be a drop-in wicket."
Former Brownlow Medallist Gerard Healy was just as scathing, saying that CA and Cricket NSW did not have much of an argument.
"The best reason so far that I've read against the change is that it's called 'a cricket ground'. Well, how convincing is that," Healy said.
"The Adelaide wicket has already proven that new technology in drop-in wickets can provide an even better surface than the old, so it should not be feared.
"Surely major venues have an obligation to be as multi-purposed as possible, surely all major venues are obligated to provide the safest possible playing field, which from personal experience the hardened centre wicket is not.
"Surely we need a more sophisticated debate than what we've already had."

MCG at risk of losing boxing day test on account of drop in wicket. I've never heard anybody who knows about cricket declare Adelaide wicket better - pink ball creates action otherwise wicket is life less.
Anglofl should build their own grounds. Get coteries to pay for them.

Gold Coast.. Australian rules is quite large here at grass roots.

It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks ... the facts are there is a growth in playing numbers, clubs, games played, school comps. That is just a fact. It doesn’t mean rl is bad or anything else it just shows growth. The women’s comps alone are proof of this. Where there were none there are now some. That’s is the very definition of growth that you deny.

I don't see any change. The fact you've only been able to highlight the creation of 5 small junior teams proves my point. I wonder if any of these will fold as season goes along?

Not sure why you'd doubt me taking this on board crapper. I'm a cricket fan and don't want drop in's at the SCG or in Perth.

You're in lala land if you think it's just 'entitled southern fuckheads', like the NRL wouldn't put pressure on shared venues themselves if they had a similar issue.

You think the AFL as a competition and business should just go "yeah nah fair enough those 5 days are more important because cricket is more national." ?
"If it was rugby league that was the only winter code sport played on the SCG, I guarantee you there'd be a drop-in wicket."
Disagree with that do you?

Bitter again that the AFL tries to have any say at all in your states.


Never realised quite how much hate there was for AFL from our Northern friends.

You think cricket is only played at the SCG for 5 days per year pal??? Try 24 at least for 2018/19 V Swans 11 for 2019 season. Plus the revenue from the 1 test match + BBL home games alone easily beats Swans total revenue.

Hope that helps.

CS .
You have an avatar that says something about hate for AFL from northern folk .
I gave you an example of why .
The entitled screeching of the afl ..& afl media is excatly why tHere is so much hate as you call it
Next up ..your laughable deflective assumption .

The Good RL folk of Sydney have played RL at the SCG for about 100 years .
We have learnt to share grounds with sokka RU & cricket .
No demands like the entitled Victorian arseholes .
No wanting to ruin the major tenants historical pitch .

So please don't use the deflective RL would do it to bullshit .because it's just that ....

The hate comes from the league fans who suffer a large inferiority complex and are scared see their pathetic game as superior & everything non league as a threat

You haven’t learnt to share grounds, you just stamp your feet and sell games for a buck
The tax payer flips the bill for the club home grounds and whilst the clubs and league still demands for stadium and club ground up grades

Something no other code has
The afl has well out grown club grounds and plays in stadiums something all states only have one or two
Of

The nrlol plays in club grounds something that there is more than enough of
