Round 1: (2020)Not realistic comparing 2020 stats to anything prior though, given we are playing 16 minute quarters. 20% less playing time.
Aah crap got it the wrong way round. That's not very cheery then.200 Ranking Points less than our lowest tally in 2019 which was the prelim, Fossie 32
not sure you have a firm grasp, here is something that you will like I finally had the
test for Covid19 on Thursday last week day 54 of my Covid diary. The girl who probed
my throat and nostrils was smoking hot underneath her protective gear.
When the season's once more on the moveThis thread needs some poetry to usher in Round 2:
When Round 2 comes along,
What would be really nifty,
If my beloved Bulldogs,
Could better twenty two inside fifties.
Thanks, but as always, it's just doggerel ... as is appropriate, of course.Grunt does not rhyme with campaigner.
Nice work d-o-g-w-a-t-c-h, full hyphenation for that effort.
I went to a Technical College dog-watch where you spell it like you say it, and if you are smartThanks, but as always, it's just doggerel ... as is appropriate, of course.
Just a question, one that you of all people might be able to answer, Yo-jimbo ... why is it hyphenation and not hy-phenation?
Can understand some being hesitant for games to return considering we aren’t out of the Covid woods yet, but what’s the concern with shortened games and season? Why would clubs need that long to prepare for these things? And what would they be preparing?I genuinely feel like the season should be cancelled and replaced by some exhibition games. The season is far too compromised and it would look very strange in the history books to have it recorded as an official season.
The AFL can't suddenly think it's OK to change the rules after the tread period and draft has been completed. Any significant rule changes like reducing the number of games, reducing the length of quarters, etc, need at least two years notice IMO. These are significant changes that would have otherwise changed the way list managers approached the next two seasons had they been given prior notice.
How can this season be taken seriously? Way too tarnished. Let's just prepare for 2021, which needs to include 23 rounds and 20 minute quarters. If the AFL are planning on reducing the time of quarters, they need to make an official announcement to implement by 2022. This gives list managers, recruiters, coaches, etc time to prepare.
The integrity of this season is almost irrelevant when factored against the enormous financial damage that the game, the League and the clubs (including ours) will suffer if it does not go ahead. The loss of broadcast dollars and sponsorship for the AFL and sponsorship for the clubs is just far too great. I don't want our club going back to pauper status and having to continually worry about our existence which was the case for decades prior to 1 October 2016.I genuinely feel like the season should be cancelled and replaced by some exhibition games. The season is far too compromised and it would look very strange in the history books to have it recorded as an official season.
