Injuries and incompetent refereeing have ruined our chances for the 8 this year.
Don’t forget our consistent unforced error count. Every week we shoot ourselves in the foot with stupid errors. Every week!
Yep. I look at these as our problem more than anything else. You can point your finger at everyone else but it’s not going to fix the problem.
Borders have opened up …sister is travelling up …traffic is shocking she said
The traffic on the highway is heavy. The traffic even in Port Macquarie is extremely heavy even for school holidays. Its all tourists as most of the local roads are pretty normal. The world has gone mad.
I drove from Sydney to Nambucca today and the roads where quiet. Much quieter than usual holiday times
Bench should be extended to 6 players, you can only use 4 but it gives teams options for using different strategies in different games and cover injuries.
The hit on LL was unfortunate, can’t really do much about it.
This is a rule change idea I like. Would also become a great in game strategy around which bench players to use
Does anyone know good places to park within walking distance of BankWest stadium?
Ordinarily I’d catch the train and walk up but not so keen to get onto public transport at the moment.
Good question. I’d like to know as well for the same reason. I was thinking I’d try one of the side streets off Victoria Rd on the other side of Church Street.
Could be worth a try. I was thinking Westfield and doing the walk as an option.
We’ve had some luck in all this
The AFL coaches have grown an NRL coaches mentality …instead of outscoring opponents …they want to outdefend opponents …and it looks damn ugly on the TV
Yep , this has been a natural cycle in all sports world wide . Some sports like AFL and basketball , are unwatchable it it’s a defensive display .
Others like RL, soccer , Ice Hockey , can be amazing spectacles when they’re low scoring games .
NBA changed the rules to stop this type of stuff . AFL is screwed , because it is a sport about endurance , so if you flood the backline and tackle to the ground , you negate this . Which makes it absolutely unwatchable
Ice Hockey could be a good watch if you could see the bloody puck !
Went to a Vancouver Canucks game when I was in Canada last year. Absolutely brilliant.
Very difficult game to watch on tv as you can’t see what is happening
AFL likes to promote itself as the winter code of the nation however they have teams in nsw and qld that not many care about. If you speak to AFL die hard about this they almost go into cardiac arrest.
AFL is actually a decent game to watch live but rubbish on TV because so much happens in the background. They are panicking because people are bored because they aren’t at the game. Throw that in with most of there clubs potentially being excluded from travelling out of the state and they are in a position where they may not be able to finish the season.
On top of that Rugby League has been able to arrange for a team from New Zealand to play in there comp as well as relocate a team from Victoria at short notice.
AFL leaders where telling the media that NRL is trying to return to quickly and now they are the ones who look like they might fail.
Personally I played AFL with some mates in high school after switching from rugby league and it is a pretty simple game. Even made a couple of rep teams. However I wouldn’t watch it on TV, happy to go to a game live and bag out swans supporters but that’s about it.
Hopefully the league players can continue to control themselves and we don’t get some kind of outbreak but I think having the NZ boys away from their families helps drill home how important being sensible is.
