I am very interested as to why you say that about the AFL...I notice in your post no Australians are mentioned, and if you think I was suggesting that it doesn’t happen , you obviously don’t know anything about my posting history.
By the way we follow the most contrived competition in the world in the AFL
To my knowledge no Australians have ever admitted to deliberately under performing. But I have heard from very credible sources, some of which was made public and some not, that Australian players have deliberately under performed and people around the team were heavily involved. Beside that, with my own eyes I have seen many very dubious passages of play involving Australian players, increasing markedly since the IPL came into creation.
