Am I supposed to know who this is?
Also, GWS clash that high is questionable.
Probably not but he has a fairly decent following on his AFL Youtube account, and I believe he has done some promotional stuff with the AFL recently.
And yeah he didn't have the best criteria for judging the jumpers apart from "it's good on me eyes"

Anyone know why the Storm vs Roosters game was at Adelaide Oval last night? Not really a rugby man so I don't watch it often, is there some kind of deal between the NRL and Adelaide Oval or is it just trying to build the foundation for future expansion there?

Fairly certain it’s a Sydney Roosters thing, kid of like Hawthorn and Launceston, North and Hobart, etc.

Many NRL teams do this as a way of promoting the game. This is their final year at Adelaide, no signs of them telling us that they're continuing with it. They also play games at the Central Coast stadium. Manly also do this in NZ and usually have a custom strip to go along with it.

Didn’t it already with Hawthorn?
That team had some superstars in it, but most of it was built through the draft and good development. I don't think we have seen a team stack in the AFL like they do in the NBA.

But speaking more broadly, Our sport usually adopts certain quirks from the US Sports a decade after it's in. AFLX and all that junk is only the ripples. I am fully bracing for the AFL to dip it's fingers in the Lottery Draft system, completely ignoring it's flaws.

Anyway, I think im just ranting now. Please stay Kawhi.

Had a look back at the old BLK thread and and saw this 2nd hand retelling of the original source:

Someone on the Richmond board says someone they sell to was told this by a supplier this morning.
I mean it's probably a fetch, but considering Andonis works at a sporting goods store, I honestly feel this rumour's got legs

Is the street that this word came from connected with your place of employment?
Not the retail one...

First runs of guernseys for clubs newly acquired are apparently free... And considering ISC have taken up s**tloads of clubs and leagues................
