    I posted this in the bey, but what I suspect is that Port have the home team strip rights and GC have the away team strip rights, and as far as I understand the home team can't dictate what the away team wears, that's up to the AFL.

    And the AFL will see $$$ at the prospect of GC playing in Chinese colors.

    Perhaps a little less table tennis and a little more due diligence on contracts.

    It's way too early for seasoned campaigners.

    Your right, my empathy is reseved for the hundreds of thousands of people who have none of the privelage, family support, copious amounts of money and whatever else he enjoys (example - the amount of chances he gets to **** up compared to the average joe or betty who are mentallly ill, and the types of help and rehab he can get to because he is famous). So no I think i will skip Hackett and Cousins and the like, and save my empathy for those i feel need or warrant it. If your empathetic towards him thats cool, but not for me.

    Lol, classic Port Adelaide.

    Port refuses to give up a home game to play in China.
    Port can't afford to pay another club to purchase a game, so AFL pay Gold Coast to move their home game to China. AFL also to pick up ground development & travel costs.
    Port want full home game rights for thinking of the idea & finding development funding that can only be spent in China.

    Port have white in their strip, so doesn't make sense for Gold Coast to play in a white away strip. ;)

    Sounds like they think they are a Victorian club.

    Most players have settled with Essendon. Just a few non-playing ones to go yet. You can bet any payments won't be included in the salary cap. Not sure if any of the players were going to take action against the AFL.

    They won't, if you are willing to hold your nerve and actually cancel after they beg you to stay initially, they will then get a member of their retention team to call you. I rang up after the footy season finished last year and told them I wanted to cancel, in the initial call first they offered a free month to think about it, I said no, then they offered to chuck in drama with my sports package for nothing, I said no, then they offered me everything for $50 for six months, I said no. Then after about four days just before it was due to be cut off old Mate from retention rang me, I told him I only had Foxtel for the footy and it was currently to expensive and I might hook it up next year when the season starts but I was thinking about it. He then tried to give me the sports & drama package for $25 a month until April this year when the Footy started again and once that expired $50 a month for the next 12 months. Call them they will do anything to keep your business.

    It's a strong Geelong line up, right? Except for no Selwood?

    Compared to Hawks, yes.
    They just dont have the talent coming through to cover the loses.

    Big call, but I do agree. Their amazing backline held them together for so long, and it has now basically disbanded and is so far gone from what it was.

    Dwayne tried to list about 6-8 players who were 'missing' from their best team and including Cockatoo in there. Also when they were talking about Geelong and their chances they said that they had Danger and Selwood so of course their window was always open. Pity their defence is looking not good and there is no system up forward. I had to scoff when the comment was made that there isn't a better 'goer' in the midfield than Selwood.
