When I heard what she said, I thought it was one of the stupidest things I heard.*waits for the FreeTK melt about vicbias not existing*
Under quarantine they can't leave the quarantine zone i.e. resort and training facility.Is there anything in the WA quarantine conditions that will make preparing for the elimination final (and the rest of the final series) more difficult? I know teams can’t leave their hotel except for training but is there any limit on the amount of training they can do?
Under the AFL protocols all clubs are still limited in the size of groups and the amount of contact training they can do, I believe. Is WA any more restrictive?
That’s the only reason they’d actually have to complain.
Ex-Eagle tell all interview or arrest night before final?Oooof usual media campaign against the Eagles during finals starting early this year...
- Nisbett a mafioso of the AFL.
- Quarantine in our own beds putting the game into disrepute.
- Only Vics are making a sacrifice.
- Only Vics will have earnt the premiership.
- Only Vics exist.
Looking forward to the next instalment.
These 'clubs' are the powerful 'stakeholders' that pressure the AFL for favors their way and complain about any advantage an interstate team can get no matter how small.Amazing that it’s coming from a few clubs not comfortable with us having a home final
probably the same ones not comfortable with us playing against north at home, or training in groups of 10
Yep. Not a peep from Caro last year when Richmond had their last 7 home and away games at the MCG about how "uncomfortable" it might make some clubs.FFS, Victorian flogs at their very best.
Veteran footy writer Caroline Wilson believes a likely elimination finals advantage for West Coast will be “incredibly tough” on its direct opponent, reporting that some clubs are “a bit uncomfortable” Adam Simpson’s men will be able to ‘home quarantine’.www.foxsports.com.au
Veteran footy writer Caroline Wilson believes a likely elimination finals advantage for West Coast will be “incredibly tough” on its direct opponent, reporting that some clubs are “a bit uncomfortable” Adam Simpson’s men will be able to ‘home quarantine’.
“Some clubs are a bit uncomfortable about this,” Wilson told Footy Classified. “They (the Eagles) are in quarantine but it’s home quarantine.
“I know if you finish seventh or eighth that you can’t expect many favours … West Coast have had to fly to the MCG and win premierships with all of the disadvantages we have heard about. But that is tough for the other side.”
Wilson suggested all finals-bound clubs should instead hub in Queensland.
“West Coast have rightly campaigned for this and they weren’t going to get a final after week one because of the complications of the quarantine. But I think it’s incredibly tough on all the other clubs, or certainly the one club that goes over,” she said.
What an incredibly bias article. At no stage did Wilson mention that both Port and the Lions share the exact same advantage. It reads as if only one team in the competition is getting this advantage.
As for all finals should be played in QLD. Wilson can GAGF. This from a Richmond supporter who have been gifted so much home ground advantage and little travel over the years. Now that a non Victorian team gets a slight advantage her view is 'no, that's not right, it should be a level playing field'.
What a bias BS article!!!
