    And scheduling games with shorter breaks in between, minimising the impacts of travel as well, so not like pies are over west then have to fly home with 6-day break. Definitely not ideal and completely dehumanising players with families thinking they could just take them interstate for weeks at a time.

    Havnt you seen the NRLs approach?

    They want to play every game from Townsville from a isolated camp

    They have no choice though. They have 20 mill in cash reserves

    West Coast Eagles have 70 mill themselves

    Shortening the season will lead to club members melting about paying full price, which will hurt the Norf's and the St Kilda's

    Theyd get the money back

    Unlike NRL, AFLs financials are pretty stable so we can handle a lessened season. Atleast thats the story Gil and co are telling

    Getting word that the local Adelaide amateur competition will be posponed until the June long weekend. Basically instead of playing an 18 game season where teams play each other once, it'll be a 9 game season instead.
    We demand an investigation into the replacement of referee Rafshan Irmatov and his departure at a difficult time in such an important match. We ask for an examination of the grassland that was not suitable for the Syrian team, while Australian players seem to be wearing shoes that cling to the long grass, so we saw Syrian players fall during the game, while Australia's players are steady.

    I think North in particular are in huge trouble with all of this. Unlike Gold Coast, the AFL won't throw money at them to ensure survival.

    Can 100% see the AFL giving them the "move to Tasmania or dissolve" ultimatum.

    Decision to be delayed till tomorrow as to whether Round 1 starts. Total rounds to be reduced regardless, down to 17.

    What's the point of dropping the rounds if you're not even going to delay the start of the season...

    Seems kind of absurd but is AFL leadership so as expected.

    I think they are expecting delays (likely a big 6-8 week chunk) so dropping another 5 rounds gives them more wiggle room.

    Possibly it seems more attainable now to get a season in.

    I was quite happy with the responses from Gil

    This will hurt every club hard, they get a huge percentage of their revenue from home game attendance which is currently non existent.

    Actually re-signed my Crows membership because of this, had no intention to previously with the dumb admin digging themselves into a hole however that stance is now pointless and would prefer to do my part. I hope all the clubs can hold their own, would be shithouse to lose them as a result of this.

    First non member year in 14 or 15 I think. Back is making it harder and harder to get to games (Inb4 but it isn't broken) and as mentioned elsewhere finding it more and more difficult to even tolerate the sport.

    Surely the Federal government just bans sporting events to trigger force majeure so the AFL isn't locked into its contracts with broadcasters.

    I would have thought North would actually benefit from this as one of the clubs that constantly wants to sell their home games because they're losing money with no fans at the stadiums, surely this is just business as usual for them and now the AFL will have to actually help them out instead of saying "do better" given they're now forcing them to play with no fans.

    It's so logical to just postpone and eventually say nope not this season. It hasn't even started, what's the point of playing 2-4 games other than milking any bit of money they can.

    All this conversation and the most important component is missed

    The players want to play. If they want to play, fucking let them. Its none of anyones business outside of that. If they want to do their job, it is up to them. We are not their mommy and daddys. They are big boys who can make their own decisions in that regard.

    AFL to announce a return to 22 round season after AFLPA voted in favour of it and asked for business as usual to be the case for the time being

    Potential for 15 min quarter still up in the air

    Not really their call. Club officials, stadium staff etc put at risk

    Club officials are included in the vote. Gil mentioned that

    Stadium staff would be really based on the person. You are in la la land if you think they can't find staff to sit in a stadium to watch a game of football

    Apparently the players accepted a shortended, 17 game season but did not accept their pay to be cut proportionately. Bit of a joke if true, especially when at the last contract deal they fought for a share of the revenue.
