There's already an SANFL team with navy blue - South AdelaideThe only agreement was they could wear it during heritage round...but that is now defunct...no other option was agreed or discussed.... very literal or arbitrary....but, in lawyer terms ..dem the facts!
i would hate to think if they were the PA navy blues in SANFL..we would be happy with em wearing that our jumper.
I'm very late to the conversation here, but I'm really interested in this. I had an epidural during my labour with my second baby and could feel some pain and sensation still but I was restricted to the bed and couldn't move my legs properly. I'm guessing there must be different levels or doses? What do you think the footballer would be able to feel considering they can still run and jump?I was not aware the epidurals were part of the scope of practice to enable AFL players to get through games. That's concerning and needs to be audited, particularly requiring them on an almost weekly basis, masking a debilitating/worsening injury.
For reference, as I'm sure most here would be aware of, that's the same modality of regional anaesthesia offered to women in labour.
Would have liked a sports medicine rotation at some stage during my formative training, a genuine insight into how the industry operates.
Still don't know why he's playing, 7 or 8 concussions since joining the afl. He's a walking cte.How sh*t is this bloke travelling.
Coaches trying to manipulate the rules again. I wish the AFL would get rid of this ridiculous goal review. It wastes time, proves nothing 90% of the time and is just an excuse for a goal umpire to try and get their heads on the TV.This current debate about game length = more injuries bewilders me a bit.
Carlton on Saturday combined between the seniors and reserves probably had the highest aggregate of game length in the history of the sport.
Reserves 1st q went for 41 minutes, second quarter went for well over 35 minutes as examples and then in the seniors the second quarter went for 37 minutes and the whole game for a total of 137 minutes.
I note Fagans comments on this issue, what I don’t get is that yes the game as a whole went for a bloody long time however to me the game is still 80 minutes long and in this case there was 57 minutes where the players are not exerting themselves.
Is it really an issue? Is it just another complete overreaction?
I sense quite strongly it’s a massive overreaction and quite simply a sly underhanded way of coaches getting a bit more control back over the game.

you could add that it takes away from celebrations in the stands and on the ground too, so it also stalls momentum.Coaches trying to manipulate the rules again.

It was interesting that after the clanger the umpires made in the Sydney match on Saturday night, on Sunday the umpires were manic about calling not 15 and play on. Anybody who tries to tell me that there is no agenda in deciding the rule of the week by the AFL umpiring fraternity is kidding themselves. Come finals, all of these rules will get thrown out and it will go back to normal where they pay no free kicks and just let the game roll on.you could add that it takes away from celebrations in the stands and on the ground too, so it also stalls momentum.
Anyway, I agree fully with all you’ve written. My view is that we have it as a safety culture risk mitigation measure against an umpire being on the take. Another downside of close relations between the AFL and gambling companies.
If there is one small positive, it is that (as you say) 90% of the goals stand. I don’t have stats for football (soccer) but it feels like a whole lot more goals are overruled on very minor technical matters.
THURSDAY night team announcements are set for a return.
It's understood club chiefs discussed the likely move in a League-wide briefing on Tuesday, with clubs now awaiting a final confirmation from the AFL.
In a poll conducted by the League's official Twitter account on Monday, more than 94 per cent of the 13,313 votes conducted suggested fans were in favour of the old model.
No clear timeline is in place for the return of the Thursday team announcements, however, an announcement is expected in coming weeks.
get excited folks
They wore black and white long after Collingwood wore it in 1892.I was a Sturt (double blues) supporter in the SANFL well before I was a Carlton supporter, and with it came an ingrained hatred for the Port Adelaide football club. As much as it pains me to say, I actually agree with Kane on this one. The prison bars has been part of a heritage that extends over 100 years; this is regardless of their mascot changing from the magpies to the power and the addition of teal since joining the AFL. Collingwood have no right to dictate to another club or try to rewrite their history. The historical agreement in place is petty and took advantage of a new club that would've agreed to anything in order to be part of the national competition.
