    A Third Team In Sydney - It's Only a Matter Of Time !!

    In reality, Melbourne already has Australia's largest single contiguous urban population. Sydney only has a larger "official" population because the ABS, for some strange reason, insists on including the Central Coast/Lake Macquarie region as part of Sydney even though it's a separate contiguous...

    No Behind Posts in AFL?

    I call BS on this. Show me the evidence. Adding a point to the score for a behind (so called because the ball went "behind the goal") wasn't introduced until 1897 - 40 years after the code was established - in order to greatly reduce the number of tied games. I can find absolutely no evidence...

    No Behind Posts in AFL?

    Not just un-patriotic but just plain brainless. There's nothing better on a sporting field than the 2 big sticks with the two little sticks on the side - especially after being abroad a while. It stands out. The soccer rectangles and NFL/rugby crossbeams are just plain boring in comparison.

    Autopsy AFL Mascots need an upgrade

    At least it's a very PC trans-gender lion.

    Professor Helen Milroy appointed to the AFL Commission (Indigenous, female, WA)

    For any who may care - and even for the vast hordes that don't - here's the state of origin stats for the AFL Commission. WA - 3 (including the chairperson) NSW - 3 Vic - 3 SA - 1 (but it is the CEO) Queensland can feel aggrieved.

    Play Nice 2018 Non AFL Admin, Crowds, Ratings, Participation etc thread

    You forgot that it also ignores finals ... where the AFL gives the NRL another belting in both crowds and ratings.

    AFL is on the decline - the younger generation is just not that into you

    Proust is too much into a rememberance of things past.

    AFL is on the decline - the younger generation is just not that into you

    For all those here confused by this post - it refers to the BBL, not the AFL. It has nothing to do with the AFL and shouldn't have been posted in this thread.

    Professor Helen Milroy appointed to the AFL Commission (Indigenous, female, WA)

    What - yet another from WA? It's all very well being indigenous and female, but it seems that since Goyder took over as Chairman, the AFL has become WA centric.:think:

    Thanks again ... overall that's very strong, even excellent, ratings.

    Very good ... does anyone know the TV ratings?

    I also have a rural background (though now living in Melbourne). I've long thought it foolish that rural leagues struggling with declining populations still insist on a full 18 on-field + 4 interchange, when they could reduce numbers to say 14 or 15 on-field + 2 interchange, thus making it quite...

    Rumour Jordan De Goey In Strife

    As per today's front page Herald Sun headlines - news of this case has been suppressed (no doubts due to Eddie's power and influence).

    Player Watch Jordan De Goey

    So the front page of today's Herald-Sun is obviously referring to De-Goey.
