AFL expansion is quite laughable really, motivated by that ongoing fear that soccer has really captured the hearts of most kids under 16. We've just had the announcement of two new A-League Clubs based on the Gold Coast and Townsville.

Any West Sydney AFL Team will fail miserably. Gold Coast might work, but the AFL has to be happy with crowds of 10 to 15 thousand for about 5 years minimum.

Probably about 5 years away from the inevtiable move of Hawthorn to Tasmania and maybe in about a decade we'll see a few other Victorian clubs diluted into others.

Melbourne Kangaroos?
Richmond Bulldogs?

Ghastly thoughts, but not entirely far-fetched.....true fans of AFL clubs are gonna have to put up with some real shit over the next 10-15 years I reckon.

Meanwhile Collingwood continue to establish themselves as Melbourne's AFL Club.. with their new spiritual home being the pointless Lexus Centre. No one speaks of Vic Park anymore.

I'm not too fond of expansion either, simply because of the dilution factor, and 16 teams is fine, though I completey understand the AFL's motivations.

However there is no chance Hawthorn will move to Tassie, and there is even less chance of any Victorian clubs merging with each other. Less than 0% chance. It simply will not happen. If there's going to be any merging over the next decade it will involve Victorian clubs with interstate clubs, be they AFL or lower.

I still don't like Demetriou.

I don't think you can say their 'spiritual home' is the LExus Centre. It's the MCG if anything. And Vic Park had begun to turn into a hole, and the fans turned a lot of people away.

Me either.

I'm all for expansion, but at the same time, 16 teams if perfectly fine.

Until all 16 teams have enough members, enough money and enough whatever else I think we should stay at 16 teams. Then once all that is sorted out, go ahead add a couple of teams.

I feel exactly the same. Personally I'd really like to see the AFL look after Melborune, Richmond, Kangas etc before expanding into an area that's going to take at least a decade before it settles.

Still disgusted at the AFL's handling of the Roos/Gold Coast issue.

And lol @ ur sig. Sure, it may be his real name. But who does not know who Pink Floyd are.

Now lol @ my sig.

There were a bunch of ppl (Ax, jen, liam, tourist, ian, varitek, etc) moving from thread to thread I and I just gave up after a while. Too hard to continue chasing them.

What happened in eykiw?

Hopefully I don't forget this year!....I'm also doing supercoach with work.

In some ways the reactions are fair, I think I'm more embarrassed for actually believing that while a few people were all having a laugh.

I feel indifferent.

Bloody AFL - trying to bribe Adelaide to give up this saturday night's NAB cup final
I'm not impressed, yeah maybe they would get a full house at Telstra Dome, but the rules state that the team that kicks the most goals of the two grand finalists gets to host the final. Simple.

...and i want to go along, so thank goodness Adelaide said "No Thankyou" to the AFL!

Yeah I was glad they abstained as well.

What I also hope is that Aker doesn't get reprimanded for his comments over the NAB cup because he's completely right. no one cares in the slightest.

And down at Wyndhamvale CC, we had all five of our senior sides in the finals, for the first time in our comparatively short history, and all but two were knocked out on the weekend. The side I'm 12th Man for, the B Turf, won outright playing Willi Colts. We made 199 batting first, then rolled them for 91 and 41.
