Yeah but it's just as arbitrary as since 1997, or this decade, or this millennium.
The AFL is the same competition as the VFL with a new name. It's a fact.
It's not arbitrary at all. If one specifies the AFL era then it has to be from 1990. Your or my opinion of when the standard lifted to the point of being a national competition doesn't matter.

Sure, but saying the "AFL era" holds no more significance than any other date to the clubs that were already in the competion.
I'm not sure if it was in this thread but someone said "you're only as good as your last game".

It's around that time though that the VFL went from being the best fooballers in Victoria to the best in Australia with all being involved and leaving the other state leagues behind. The big shift probably happened in the 80s to be fair but choosing 1990 when the name change occurred is as good as any line in the sand.

If it's just the VFL and there's no difference, why did they change the name to AFL?

They might coincide, but I'd say the "professional era" is more significant. And that's the point you can chose any "era" to make yourself sound good, so it's pointless.

Looks like this thread has run its course much like our campaign to wear the PB's going forward.

To be honest, the AFL has too much important sh*t to worry about then a guernsey design. It's really bad timing all round to get this proposal off the ground however if anyone's going to drive it, it is the fans.

I am going to be curious to see what happens if we get a home game against Collingwood and how many people would show up wearing the PB's to prove a point. It will probably confuse the sh*t out of viewers on TV who aren't aware of the PB's.

The whole Covid thing has decentralised the AFL from being so Vic centric, Collingwood and Ports Prison Bars seem a whole lot less at odds as it feels more like a national comp right now.
I'm finding it pretty amusing that those flogs in the media that were promoting Adelaide vs Port games be played in Melbourne a few years ago are now seeing their teams playing clash games in Qld and WA

I'd be happy for Richmond to create some goodwill with Port and back their bid. I'd also be happy for Richmond to play against a prison-bar wearing Port Adelaide annually (yes... I know it didn't work out great last time).
Well did in the long run... I was there that day, cracking September weather to boot.

The prison bars and the gold sash is an image us old Port fans grew up with. Glenelg was a major rival during the 80s.

This is an easy marketing opportunity and benefit both Port and Richmond.

the more urgent issue is what happens to all the men and women who change their name when they get married. i mean, i know they dissapear never to be seen again, but where do they go? the disappearance of millions of people every year is surely a bigger issue than even the coronavirus.
