    Matt Horton and sun yang

    Couldn’t find a thread on this and there doesn’t appear to be a swimming board or thread. Matt refused to share podium with the suspected drug cheat who had previously tested positive to a stimulant but served penalty in secret then allegedly smashed a vial of blood when tested. I think that...

    Section 44 change or not

    With the recent high profile section 44 casualties the question should be asked is there appetite for a referendum (which is the only way to change) Currently it states one cannot be a foriegn citizen or entitled to the rights of a citizen of another country to represent parliament. I believe...

    Scary equalization solution

    Maybe this belongs on conspiracy board but... I think I've had a disturbing vision of the AFLs future tying in betting and equalization. No priority picks or luxury taxes needed. What they will do is handicap sides to the $2 / $1.90 line for tab sportsbet 5 minutes before the game. So if...

    Away game membership question

    Question is who pays if you attend a match as an away game member (eg replacement game or say 18 game membership)? Does your club pay the home team and is that payment dependent on how many away club members attend or is it a flat amount on projected attendance? Reasoning ask is a friend has...

    Predict which big fish Sydney will get in 2014 trade period

    As Sydney fans have posted elsewhere, there are a few well paid swans coming to end of career. Off top of head this would be goodes, ROK, ted Richards, rhyce shaw, maybe others. So with about another 1m to spend (remembering Tippett contract being front loaded) lets pick who they will get at...

    Equalization, cola and PP solution

    I posted this in another thread but the more I thought I think it could work. Rebrand the cola a afl subsidy for lack of success. So if a club is a start up franchise or has not seen finals for 5 years it gets 10% added to its TPP. This money to be paid directly by afl to the club who in turn...

    Betts > Thomas > Franklin

    How is this possible? Look at what the likely FA compensation is going to be as all are rated as band 1. Never mind that the size of Franklin's contract will be more than Thomas and Betts put together. Dimwit in charge of the AFL needs to f**k off and change the rules so that if there is...

    The Placebo effect - Cheating without any risk

    I stumbled on this article via yahoo today. The conference is the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists scientific meeting (so not Dank level quackery of allegedly using warfarin to improve blood flow) The professor of neurophysiology at the University of Turin in Italy says...

    Crankyhawk's fixturing solution

    I posted this suggestion in the 2013 Fan Fixture response thread and now I've actually sat down and worked out how it might pan out. Every club gets a rotating fixture over 4 years. During that 4 years, you play one club 8 times (a nominated rival) and every other club 5 times. Every club is...

    Should we be looking at the GoalKicka?

    Not sure if this has been covered elsewhere (did search for goalkicka - no responses) but I remember in the middle of the year this man calls up SEN to claim that he had this device (the GoalKicka) which was designed to improve goalkicking by teaching players to aim for the middle of the goal...

    Help asked for by a hawk supporter re round 1

    Sorry to intrude but I am looking for some assistance re an umpiring interpretation I am wondering if anyone recalls the round 1 game where Hawthorn got a free kick but the umpire pointed the wrong way, the adelaide player took the kick and the hawks got a 50m (and resultant goal). Did Jeff...

    What is the penalty for breaking the sub rule?

    One of the SEN commentators this am (Dr Turf) was saying that there is no defined penalty for having the subbed off player run back on the field - raised the possibility of a coach in the Grand Final bringing back a player subbed off with the game in the balance. All KB could say was...
