Alex Rance retired because he knew he was going to get divorce.

I'm no longer earn a living therefore no ongoing alimony.

Like Gary Ablett snr when he first retired.

Once Rance's divorce is finalised then he will make a comeback

I think a few people have posted something similar, but it’s now mid-January and I can honestly say I haven’t missed the footy.

Few caveats:
- I like US sports so that fills some of the time
- I have three young kids so that takes care of a lot of spare time
- I’m happy to watch most sports so have got into BBL, NBL and can almost stomach the A League for 15 mins or so.

My guess is a lot of people have Foxtel or Kayo or similar, so the third point is relevant for them too - but maybe not. I’ll be into the footy as usual come March but i don’t think I’ve checked afl websites for a couple of months and pretty much anytime I’ve been on here has been for non-footy boards, whereas a few years back I’d have been on preseason threads etc.

Hopefully this translates into me being calmer watching the dogs as I’m less invested, although I wouldn’t hold my breath.
