About 10 days ago, at a function in the NSW Parliament building attended by G. McLachlan & other AFL officials, a Parliamentary group called "Parliamentary Friends Of The AFL" was formed. More than 50 people attended the event, inc. G. Berejiklian, J. McKay etc.

Members of this new group include G. Berejiklian, Opposition Leader J. Mc Kay, & a total of. 20 NSW MP.'s. This, hopefully, will be a very influential group to advance the interests of the AFL & GR AF in NSW.

The first issue likely to be on the agenda of the group is the crisis in GR facilities in Sydney, mainly in the NS & ES.

GWS is not mentioned in the article- but GWS (& the Swans) have an interest in ensuring ANZ stadium does not lose its ability to host AFL matches ie remains an oval. There will be times when GWS is playing big home matches, which would attract crowds MUCH bigger than the capacity of Giants Stadium: GWS will play at ANZ.
Ditto Swans games that can, & do, attract crowds bigger than 48 K capacity of SCG.

(See point 2).

Some big comments in a Marc McGowan & Jon Ralph article in the Tele/Hun tonight.

For example:

“For Cameron, managing the injury crisis and fallout from publicity including the Amazon doco is equaled by the task of winning games with a list never designed for football in 2021.

The list was built on the task of winning brutal finals football with big bruising midfielders who thrived at stoppages”.

Pretty good analysis.

We are missing JC more than we realise.

Basically, we're sh*t in every category, both offensively and defensively.

I think our club has been very well served by the Co-Captain model since inception.

Cal and Phil were exemplary co-Captains.

It halves the pressure and workload, and recognises the reality of injuries to and pressures on Captains.

The VFL press is way out over their skis in calling for Cogs to be replaced.

Whether Cogs and TFG are C and VC, or Co-C probably doesn’t make that much difference.

Further, TFG is far to classy and loyal to ask to be made C.

Cogs will definitely refind his best form on return from injury, like a quality batsman coming back from a few early dismissals.

However, if I were Cogs, I’d ask my mate TFG to join me as Co-C for 2022 once season 2021 is done.

I just don’t see any downside for anyone, only upside.
