    Looks a mess

    Advertising has been inexistent, and there looks to be about 12 people at the Adelaide Oval, which fills out for games against Gold Coast.

    Since the final siren of the Grand Final I haven't watched a single second of footy or highlights, and have avoided footy media as much as possible.

    Decided to turn on the TV for a look. On comes a Dangerfield pre-game montage.

    Chris Scott as coach withdraws Ablett from the squad a few weeks ago and Selwood pulls out on the day.

    Yep no publicity and when it is talked about in the media it's all negative. What do you expect?

    There are still as many Geelong players playing as Hawthorn players.

    Crowd is building up, reckon it’ll get to 20-25k. Decent Irish support at the game too.

    And as always in the AFL, the consistency of rules is out the window.

    The scoreboard has ‘Unders’ instead of ‘Goals’

    The rules video says yellow card is you’re off for the game with a replacement, the Record says a black card will do this (which would be more logical as that is a GAA rule).

    Also the media server in the Australian coaches box has tripped the fire alarm :D

    The Irish players will be cooked playing in this heat, stupid that this game isn't played at night at this time of year but the AFL is allergic to common sense.

    Probably coz no-one gives a shit about a bastardised game that is neither AFL or Gaelic.

    Rumour has it Selwood hurt his neck in the warmup, practising his signature move.

    Sure, if you want to see SA get smashed by the Vics by 100 plus points.
