**** me the afl are a bunch of money hungry campaigners!! I have to pay them $50 to do their accreditation course in order to coach my sons U9’s team. Local clubs struggle enough to get volunteers.
If it's of any consolation the money goes towards funding Gillon's goal of "a BJ a day, never from the same (person)".

Gordon is a grade A suckhole and a shyster.

Plays the working class hero whilst he sits on hundreds of millions in the bank. Bailed out of Slater & Gordon with a fortune before it went arse up, and has no comment to make about the investors dough that sits in his bank accounts.

Not sure what Dogs' Ballarat situation is but wouldn't be surprised if they don't make much profit out of the venture. He's obviously mad that we make millions out of the Tassie deal.

Agreed. Hate it when clubs hog certain game slots every year.
It's not so much that, I mean Anzac Day is a thing, same with Dreamtime; I have no issues with those games having clubs locked in annually (albeit I like when more matches are played on Anzac Day). But this is the first match of the season, there's nothing special about it apart from that. The fact that they lock in a fixture that isn't even that amazing is a pain. I'd love to see the two grand finalists play a rematch for the first match of the season. That way you know who is playing, but it should change often enough

It is weird and I do like your suggestion although I can understand why the gf rematch isn't first up. Having a few rounds first gives the opportunity for a bit more narrative leading into it rather than it being a straight up rematch of the last game we saw.

I'm sick of carlton richmond too though as it's invariably a shit game. Share it around.
