    Have done it for years. It's better for them to keep you as a customer. There's a massive Whirlpool thread on it.

    "The poor on-field performances of powerhouse clubs Collingwood, Richmond and Essendon last season and their failure to make the finals also hurt the AFL’s bottom line."

    Oh great. Look for them to try and fix that one...

    Kochie on AA says he has threatened the Suns, if you want this to be a one-off thing, go ahead and wear your home jumper, if you want to be a partner and work with us and make it an annual thing you will wear your away jumper.

    Thought they didn't care?

    $2m on community projects and a further $1m getting the ground ready for the China game.

    Two years out of Finals.

    Are they a footy club or a Rotary/Lions club?

    I don't recall there being a line up of clubs wanting to play in China against Port

    He says it's in their contact for the game that gc have to wear their away strip. Lol
    Everything that guy says sounds like a late night tv commercial. He's always trying to sell something whether it is a community club, China, history, the best most optimistic he's ever been for the upcoming season, or indigenous programs. But he just sounds like he's trying too hard and therefore comes across as dodgy imo

    It is completely reasonable and rational to despise Kochie. He is an irredeemable man in many facets.

    Kochie wouldn't be making threats if it actually was in the contract for them to wear their away strip.

    AFL: New Smaller Screen! You're Welcome!


    The AFL are excited to announce that purchasers of their Live Pass will now be able to stream games on a tablet smaller than ever.

    In an announcement, the AFL said "in 2017 live streaming picture size on Tablet will be shown at iPhone size due to new Broadcast Agreement. New features to come."

    There is no word yet on the 'new features to come' but insiders say the AFL is trialling 'no sound,' 'black and white' and just charging subscribers but providing no vision at all.

    "We know that fans found a full screen on the iPad too confronting and will be thrilled to pay $89.99 for an inferior picture to last season."

    "We also thought it would be fun to let the fans find this out after they'd purchased it and are stuck with this.

    "Of course, as always, you can pay a lot more and get Foxtel. You fans are made of money so that shouldn't be a problem. In fact, we at the AFL operate on the belief that everyone has Foxtel," said an AFL spokesperson.

    Fans have reacted by saying 'this is the most AFL move in the history of AFL moves.'

    Asked about fans’ anger, an AFL spokesperson said they are currently working out a way to tax fans for complaining.

    “They never thank us. What about that time we made food prices at stadiums go from insanely expensive to pretty expensive?”
