Good stuff. All very objective from Cats supporters, not defensive / predictable forum behaviour at all. Well done.
The fact is that GEEL have geographical advantages over other Victorian clubs.
GEEL will always be the most attractive Victorian-based club and doubly so for those from the region for obvious reasons (none of those being Chris Scott).
Financial levers would be the best and easiest equalization measure for the AFL Commission.
Think of it like a 'reverse-COLA', which would be quite measurable if the AFL Commission had the want to justify such a position.
If they justified it with SYD, they could justify it for GEEL.
Good luck with the 'Champion Team'.
When did Shocking come onboard the rules committee?
The rules committee guy made major changes to the game, then took head job at Geelong, the burden of proving there was no conflict of interest lies with Shocking and Geelong.
Like I said the COI was massive, Shocking was reported in the mainstream media to be changed the rules based on watching Richmond videos.I have no idea.
Do you get this tinfoil about the cacophony of other AFL rules officials and committee members who have or have had ties to AFL clubs?
What I personally like the most is that this person with, apparently, limitless influence with the afl decides to wield this power NOT by awarding his pet team an ongoing binding agreement to host week one finals on their home ground as well as the standard 11 home games a season.
No, what he thought would be much better would be to make the guy standing in front of the guy who marked the ball, stand still for a few extra microseconds.
It’s because that’s the thing about COI, the appearance of COI is the issue, even if you swear in your own mind you are being level headed and unbiased!How the f*** do you figure that?
You’re the one making the accusation. It’s like a bitch that accuses their husband of having an affair. If he’s not, all he can do is tell the truth, there is no proving anything. The burden of proof is on her.
I actually had you pegged as one of the smarter Richmond posters.
