AFL show why they are Idiots

I just read the AFL are to take measures against matches played in hot weather next season. Funny that............ Wasn't it those idiots who have booked Football for Saturday 12.pm starts nextseason in WA??? What is the AFL going to do ?? Blanket the sun. Up till round 10 - 12 at least, in Perth they will be playing in between 33-34 at the start of the season at that time up to round ten where it could still reach 23-26 at that time. The AFL should only stick to Nite matches on Saturday Or Sunday day( R.11 onwards) matches in Perth .

C'mon KI , the AFL is not going down, they just have to show common sense, It is all well & good to say play here at that time with criterias set in place ... but the reality is Perth is not like Melbourne ( weatherwise )

idiots, once again money talks, I mean who are the AFL to raise concerns to the TV powerbrokers who just handed over half a billion bucks for rights

I must say couts I never thought about it weather wise, but I did raise eyebrows when I saw bounce down for midday, just doesnt seem right.

I have another concern and I was thinking of starting a new thread but this title seems appropriate


over the past 3 or so weeks there havwe been some positively mouth-watering games on involving interstate teams. It started with Brissie Vs Port Adelaide, sat night sitting with me pa with a few stubbies getting ready to watch a free flowing enterpreising game of footy and what do they show???????????????? st fukkinkilda V the bulldogs, of course why would any neutral melbournians want to watch a high quality interstate game when their are 2 melbourne teams (one 3rd last and a rubble, the other 9th) slogging it out?
then its Nth Vs Bridsbane and what do they show collingwood Vs Freo, screw collingwood and their legions of fans when they suck they are woeful and believe you me for the past month they have been woeful, but the afl thinks its more important to cater for collingwood fans against a winless freo than to watch a marvelous game between brissie and Nth who the week before almost knocked over the bombers. This is just plain ridiculous.....last sunday I really wanted to watch the adelaide derby, always fiery and always high quality but they showed brissie Vs the bulldogs, enough of this already, just play the best games, its the AFL now and everyones accepted it, neutral fans want to watch quality (especially in this day and age of questionable footy) not just victorian teams.

Colonical Stadium is a joke...... enuff said about that!! Interseting to hear Mr Jackson saying that the AFL would gladly re-visit the rule about closing the roof at Colonical in future... the way i see it (as do MOST footy ppl here) if it rains close the roof, if it aint.. f**k it, keep it open!!!!!!!!


And if i could quote tigertuff here...
"(especially in this day and age of questionable footy)"

.... i couldnt agree with ya more here buddy!!!
