I'm just going to make my picks now, because I can:

Melbourne vs Carlton
North vs Sydney
Freo vs St Kilda
Gold Coast vs Geelong gonna rape Ablett
Richmond vs Port
Adelaide vs Lions
Collingwood vs West Coast (but hopefully a close contest?)
Puppies vs Hawthorn

one positive thing you can see about poor attendance by North/Port fans is that it's still a hell of a lot better than in America.

In money terms it's probably all a bit the same. But yeah its like if the AFL turn around and say "hey north, how do you feel about moving to New Zealand?"

I don't know enough about it (and I will ask about It in the NHL thread, as to what concessions the "new team" is gonna get.

I'd warm to North immediately if they became North Island.

Replace "having beers" with "half-assedly finishing a sculpture" and yeah.

Also, now would be a good time to reintroduce an Adelaide NRL team. Just saying.

The crowds to that wouldn't even be close to half of that of an average Port Adelaide crowd.

I don't want no NRL team.

I'd say a lot of NRL crowds aren't close to half a Port Adelaide crowd already, but yeah, they'd need a fair bit of propping up. I'd like to see it happen though, keep Demetriou on his toes a bit and add something to do here. I can understand why they wouldn't be interested compared to a boom-town like Perth, but given the current lower local interest in AFL and the way A-League has succeeded, for instance, I don't think it'd be a terribly harmful plan.

Speaking of State of Origin, I still fucking well want it back in Aussie Rules. I'd enjoy cheering for Victoria in a sport people actually attend, i.e. something that's not domestic cricket.

A million times this. That Vic vs Rest game a couple years back was fucking awesome. Origin used to be HUGE in the VFL days. Of course if they bought it back now, there'd be no passion, in that "playing for the big V" means fuck all and you'll never see anyone going "we stuck it right up em" unless they're trying to be funny, but as a showcase and hype and awesomeness and excitement, I don't know why it's not on the table.

I reckon if you made it an annual fixture like in the NRL, people would get right the fuck into it all over again. Perhaps not straight away, but with time for growth, probably. I keep banging on that it should replace the pre-season. Why not a four-way series between VIC, SA, WA, and The Rest? That'd actually mean something. But right now I'm probably just re-writing a post I've made five or ten times before.

Looks like Kouta will be captain of the Vics in the z-grade celebrities Legends game.
