In much the same the Republic of Fruchoctopia blames Port for everything, he really misses the mark.Just on Garry Lyon one of my mates was dealing blackjack to him in Crown a number of years ago and in conversation my mate said he was South Australian. Well apparently Lyon went on a 5 minute monologue how the non-Vic states had killed football and he wished that they would go back to the VFL. That's the sort of stupidity you're dealing with. He may have changed his tune now but wouldn't surprise me if that is still how he feels.
The arms race between Collingwood and Richmond in the early 80’s which threatened to send both of those powerhouse clubs to wall, let alone the fact the VFL’s multimedia rights were worth nothing (ditto the SANFL and WAFL) is what ultimately led to the push for a national comp.
I mean, what does he seriously think the alternative was?
