    Game Day KROCK Re-airs the 2007 GF....Sunday April 4 2020 2 PM MCG

    I had mentioned to several work mates about the feeling of being disheartened by half time in a GF. "I just like once to be in the game at half time, not already seeing the game done".. For years, after multiple GF disappointments after so much effort to get there ..then it was done so quickly...

    Rumour GFC 2020 Player Trading, Drafting FA, Rumours and Wish lists

    Pure...No Doubt? It only seemed like yesterday that I thought this thing might be like SARS , and now I have a heap of doubts on everything. List sizes... if they reduce them how many good players will be looking for a place. Scap. probably gets reduced real to list sizes. and what...

    Movies & TV Last movie you watched?

    Watched QT latest the other night. It was interestingly more subtle than a lot of his films imo. A real homage to the industry of Hollywood rather than just one film.. a clever rework of a few old film TV shows as well. DeCap being a an Eastwood character ... tough sell.

    Injury All things COVID-19 - including the impact on Season 2020

    Its the way I took it. Sometimes its like we have been blessed or kissed on the artefact or something to be born in Australia. We are far from perfect... but boy in such a wealthy knoweldable country ..something has gone seriously wrong when they don't have a version of medicare, NHS call it...

    Prediction Reduced List

    If they reduce to the lists to 35 , some players will be hard done by... It depends on what they reduce the Scap to in parallel to the list numbers. 35 doesnt leave a of lot of spce for the the developemnt of players like a Jarvis.. I doubt you could carry too many that are years away from playing.

    Prediction Reduced List

    Less Membership cost ? I doubt Less entertainment? Probably depends but I have doubt that any coach will change methods. I remember when Magnum ice creams seemed a lot bigger and thicker than they are now... these days they are just a glorified choc wedge. I guess we can hope.

    Mergers will come back onto the table (which Victorian teams would make the best case for merging?)

    Its debatable what the W games are worth... that's yet to be determined. We have VFL games that are worth little for example... I suspect we will see midweek games if that mean more money from broadcasters... many changes coming because the roaring twenties are over

    Mergers will come back onto the table (which Victorian teams would make the best case for merging?)

    It loses broadcast money.... whether its pay or free. At the moment PAY TV ...is paying a big chunk of the dollars. To go back to 12 teams , media will hav etc pay a lot more for games or everything has to contract. Perhaps 12 gets more advertising etc. If Fox falls over , it will be replaced...

    Mergers will come back onto the table (which Victorian teams would make the best case for merging?)

    It would mean 6*22= 132 games. compared to 9*22=198 games.... that's a huge loss of media money. As it is atm ... the extra game GC and GWS supply pay for their participation.

    Analysis 35 Player Senior Lists

    39 then 35 ... get cost down. Reduce the cap as well. They should consider 16 a side and 20 in total. They are going to have a truck load of debt to pay off. If 35 is too little introduce a rule that allows top ups or something... there is no absolute..the afl makes its own rules.. and for...

    Mergers will come back onto the table (which Victorian teams would make the best case for merging?)

    I doubt any mergers will happen... more people would rather see their club die than go on as some sort of zombie club. From a media pov.. I think the extra game is worth more than the cost of keeping GC alive. Could a club get relocated? Thats difficult too.

    Out of Contract Cats Players at the end of 2020

    Unless a new reality hits for the players.. I can see a few middle tier players getting pushed out at clubs. If clubs revenue drops by 30% from 50M to 35M for eg.. it will have to affect SCap. The afl should rip up player agreements and start again once their dollar stream is established. 22...
