hi folks what do you all get up to in the off season of aussie rules. I play weekly pennant bowls go detecting up in the golden triangle eg maryborugh every now and again and I work through out the week and I tend to go on a nice little holiday early dec before the school kids go on theirs somewhere. This time its Bermagui area nsw south coast for say 1 and a half weeks last year was east coast tassie nice spot.

I watch horse racing over Spring Carnival, cricket, a bit of tennis during Aussie Open (I never really get into tennis but I'll watch a big match). Physically I spend more time outdoors fixing up the house etc. But yeah, this time of year before Big Bash cricket kicks in always feels like somethings missing in my life

Bermagui is ******* beautiful, such a brilliant part of the world. Would love to retire there one day!

To answer your question I love off season! I go to music festivals, spend as much time as possible in the workshop (I build guitar pedals and stuff like that), hang out with the old man and catch up on the movies and TV shows I missed during the season.

Defo try to spend as much time at festivals and bars as well!

Normally I follow the footy offseason during trade period and leading up to the draft. Then I take a break from things for the most part besides reading some training reports.

Around late Jan I start to miss footy and that's when I might dust off my dvd's of Essendon's 2000 season although I haven't done that for a few years.
I also start working on my supercoach team around this time.

By Feb I'll be so desperate for footy that I'll watch a week of AFLW and actually think "hey this isn't too bad". But then the next week NAB Cup (or whatever its called) will start and then i'll forget all about AFLW all over again.

Enjoy the fact that we're not losing. Watch Tottenham to keep me accustomed to the feeling of losing. Drink and take a bunch of gear. Good times.
