Does anyone else think that Eddie always referring to the compliments from senior anonymous AFL people when he has these hare-brained schemes is a bit like when you do a s**t painting at primary school and ya mum tells you how good it is?

No, I don't think anyone else has ever thought that.

Eddie’s plan is so short sighted. Ok… give North 11 x Tassie games and 11 x Melbourne games. Eddie says that’s the arrangement ‘forever’. Ok …it’s 2030 and North are a very strong team …. who get 22 x home games per season and ZERO away games. Do you think the rest of the competition will accept : “yeah, that was their reward for doing a semi re-location” …. imagine the Cats played 11 games at GMHBA and 11 at Marvel every ….single …season.

Eddie’s idea is great in his own mind … but it’s lacking in any common sense at all as no-one will accept any team playing 22 x home games. It’s just ludicrous and it pains me not a single journo is smart enough to put that question to him ….

Wait - so who are the unlucky teams that have to give up home games to play in Tassie or Melbourne?

The rest of the comp. John Elliott offered the same thing in the early 90's when Sydney were on there knees. Carlton would play 11 away games in Sydney so we could still have 11 games in Sydney each season.
