    Tasmania set to apply for a provisional AFL licence (aiming to enter competition by 2025)

    Dunedin's has an average max of 9 in July, Hobart 12 and Melbourne 14. So, Hobart is more like Melbourne than Dunedin. Plus, Dunedin also gets more rain, which is what the roof if for. A roofed stadium does not have heating. Still gets cold inside Marvel. Stadiums do not need a roof. Heck, the...

    The Great Injustice - The Grand Final Contract thread

    But these people would simply become members of their clubs, meaning more revenue for Vic clubs and less AFL distributions. It all evens out. No less money in the game. Forget the hundreds of millions the AFL is spending via the NSW/Qld clubs to grow the game, a GF with borders open would...

    Tasmania set to apply for a provisional AFL licence (aiming to enter competition by 2025)

    1. Why? Funding is already available. 2. Why? Everyone is happy with Tasmanian Devils FC 3. Why? Launceston crowds for footy are just as strong 4. New stadium is great but what they have is already equal with GWS. Hobart same rainfall as Melbourne so why a roof? Tassie people are used to their...

    And no games for the first 6 - 8 rounds due to wet season. Hard pass on Darwin. Tassie, WA3 & Canberra miles in front.

    The future of the Pre-Grand Final Bye

    Apple Isle Showdown: Tas Govt threatens to end Hawks, North deals if no plan for 19th side

    Is that true? Do you have any info about what the votes were for previous expansions. I reckon they just go for consensus.

    Fixture Season 2032 Brisbane Olympics in the AFL Season

    The plan is to demolish and rebuild. Out of action for three years in between Ashes tests in 2025/26 and 2029/30, probably 26/27/28.

    Expansion Long-term future of the AFL.

    2025. Tas come in. GWS rebrand Western Sydney and play nine games Sydney, one in Newcastle and Woolongong. Hawks and Saints play 2/3 games each in Canberra. North 2/3 games Albury. GC rebrand Queensland Suns and play games in Sunshine Coast & Cairns, Townsville & Mackay (rotate every year). Dees...

    Expansion Long-term future of the AFL.

    Tassie? Yep. Should come in 2025. Season already has two byes so minimal Change to the season structure. WA3? Who would barrack for them? Freo has plenty of room to grow first. Pass. NT? Darwin pop 148k. Very little corporate support and an unsuitable climate. Pass. Canberra? Maybe. 20 teams...

    AFL Grand Final 2021 Grand Final - Melbourne vs Western Bulldogs - Sat, Sept 25 - 5:15pm AWST / 7:15pm AEST

    Players whose main attribute is great skills often fail under finals pressure. I.e. Most of the Geelong side. Going forward we need a few passionate desperados like Libba and Smith.

    Jumper clash fails

    Sufficient contrast. Doggies almost light blue these days. Dees almost black.

    New facilities in Springfield. Update: all systems go!

    But it could be 33 games, or up to 39 including finals. Even at $20m, you would more than make it back. The legacy would be an upgraded athletics facility. Springfield construction has just commenced, they are not going to re-do the ground two years after it is finished and expend it to 20K...
