At least we can watch the 2018 U.S. Open golf tournament.

Amazingly, this is the most disrupted the AFL (formerly the VFL) has ever been. Even during the height of both World Wars, the VFL continued on. They were heavily affected, with several teams dropping out and unable to play, but they got full seasons in, which won't happen this year.

(Fitzroy, in 1916, won both the wooden spoon and the premiership. Only four teams competed that year.)

Freo and West Coast being based on the Gold Coast will boost the IQ of both Western Australia and Queensland.

I wish I was excited. But I'm not yet. The idea of footy with no crowds, being called remotely, with teams playing in hubs, and the potential of there being finals with no crowds, it all just feels wrong. We'll see.

But I do hope it gets more non-Aussies into it - both the EPL and the NBA are played at the opposite times of year, no?

So, I guess the Blues haven't even looked at the footy since March.

What an abominable performance.

Alright, now both teams are really bad, so it's looking more even.

No supporter came away from that game happy

Glad to see Port giving the Crows a touch up in their awesome guernsey, and awesome to see Gold Coast comfortably beating West Coast at the moment!

Probably the best year to win the wooden spoon but my interest in the sport apart from office tipping is at an all time low.

Port should wear the prison bars uniform on the regular. Not only is it better than the Power uniform, you know that every time they do it Eddie McGuire will absolutely melt down.

Our match didn't start until almost 3 AM so I couldn't watch it. Of course I missed our first win over Geelong in fucking years

We really need to show more consistency. 1 point the entire 4th quarter? What the fuck?

It's great that we know who the worst side of the 2020s is already. Other applicants need not apply.

It's pretty depressing watching the Crows. What the hell happened?

Everything happened - but the main problem being is entrusting a rebuild to the same people in the admin who presided over the destruction of the club in the first place. Not even Alistair Clarkson could do anything with this.

Destroyed his legacy at the club - probably only second to James Hird in recent memory ...
