Only hardcore bogans still think that state vs state is an actual thing. Younger people (who drink/eat more than beer and sausages) these days actually enjoy travelling around the country and meeting new people. It’s 2020, just donate the money and move on. Dangerfield will be super-excited for the game.
Well while most of the country enjoys watching the charity game you can take your vegan smoothie down to your mum's basement and enjoy re runs of the Batchelor on your own

Probably not for another month.
Would be stupid to release them early because it just leaves longer when players could get injured training and will have to pull out. Which means a bunch of people sooking on big footy about people pulling out.

Gawn tapping to Martin, Danger & Bont. mmmmmm
If it's centre square your talking (because you said tapping) then I'll see your 'mmmmmm' and raise you with: NicNat tapping to Fyfe, Mitchell, Cripps and (T) Kelly (and that's just WA)

If we must go 'All Stars' then add Grundy and Neale...with Cogs and Hill on the outside.

Victoria are not winning the midfield battle in 2020...but with Rance retired and Gov injured you now have the better defence.

Who's rucking the other 50% game time?
Don't understand the pissing contest over this. The players won't be going hard at it and the intensity will be lower than pre-school nap time. They will put on a show for a good cause but there won't be any tagging or bone crunching tackles or bumps.

I'll watch it but I won't be donating a dollar
You do that. It's your choice.

My preference is to donate as much as we can. Why not donate at least $5?

I like helping fellow Aussie's who are hurting. I have Australian neighbours 1000's of kilometers away. They don't live near me and I don't know them, but I love and want to help them.

No one wants injuries.
I don't really understand this.

Players have a pre-season every year where injuries can, and do occur.

They play pre-season intra-club games where injuries can, and do occur.

They play pre-season games where injuries can, and do occur.


Any player that doesn't play in this so-called SOO game will be doing one of the above anyway. Players that do play, will skip one of the above.


I can't see how replacing either a intr-club praccy or a pre-season game with this SOO would make any difference to anyone's chances of getting hurt.

Surely it should just be East vs. West?

WA, SA and NT versus Vic, Q'land, NSW and Tassie.
Or North vs. South - Vic, S.A., Tassie versus WA, NT, NSW nd Q'land.

Let's be honest, the day the All Stars were introduced, was the day State of Origin died forever.

If you're not going to genuinely do SoO, then can the Big V nonsense and just do a genuine 'best of the best' game.

NN tapping out of the centre to arguably the most potent midfield ever assembled with Fyfe, Neal, Cripps, Kelly, Mitchell ect..., Grundy around the ground doing the same, Gawn hands down absolutely owned.

If there was a SOO game last year maybe Tom Mitchell never breaks his leg during pre season. People need to stop living in fear.

Hawks play saints on same day. besides youre not getting ny of our players whom we keep being told 'will break down anyday"

Heres another thought. if buddy could play - gets career ending injury - AFL write off the swans exposure in the salary cap "its only fair'

Players on ambassadorial payments should be forced to play
