Around 2015 Gill said that the best thing for the AFL would be for the Bulldogs and Richmond to win a flag, given their non financial supporters.

This was only a couple of years after Essendon were having a crisis meeting and Andy D just happened to conference call in the day before the club was being raided by authorities.

Both of which are absolute coincidences and how dare you suggest anything untoward.

This is also the same AFL tribunal that found that because they couldn't find a direct chain of possession all the way from manufacture to Windy Hill then there is some doubt and threw the case out, regardless of what was actually there and used.

This is also the competition that simultaneously has a three strike policy that nobody has ever struck out on and the AFL has never made someone's positive test public with their corresponding strike except for when players have been found on doorsteps, or in cars, or by police and it was already in the news. Meanwhile allowing players to put their hand up in the background on Monday morning and avoid any procedural punishment.

Don't make the AFL look bad and you can do whatever you like.

Wouldn't say the competition's rigged per-se, but the AFL clearly puts the needs of revenue ahead of fairness and certain big Vic clubs will always end up being the beneficiaries of such policy.
