    AFL has to be classified as a national heritage cultural entity and start to have more oversight from independent bodies. It's turning into a farce. We want our game to have roots in Australia not America. It's too precious to let corporations like Marvel entertainment take it over. Our sport is built on something that evolved from communities in a complex way. Stamping American values all over it willy nilly won't nurture the game.

    Our club was born in blood and boots...

    (I still loved the games last night but I know what you are saying...I guess that to me all that ‘stuff’ You mention is exactly what AFLx is for. Leave the clubs and traditions out of it and just have some fun.)
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    Re: AFLX revealed: Who your club plays and when

    I get what you are saying. I felt myself being an old curmudgeon as I wrote my last post. Still... It's all fun and games until Bont rolls an ankle. Call me sensitive but... I'm so over injuries to my favorite players! If they are going to do it then, go balls out... make them wear WWF style outfits.
    But in terms of options, why not do something with the vfl instead? Or do a mixed comp, men and women? Or a legends style fundraiser? Anyway, I'm going back to my rocking chair and blanket.

    I wouldn’t put this down to AFLX. He did go into the game with a bad elbow.

    I ended up watchimg all the games and enjoyed them. The emphasis on pace and skills without the prospect of serious impact means they there are more contests for the ball without players not involved in the contest crashing into the pack with no intention of going for the ball.

    Oh noes.

    Vale AFELX, we hardly knew ye.

    What a pointless, predictably shithouse waste of time and resources.

    At least this forecasts better support for the women's competition.

    Maybe David Stevenson should go back to Nike overseas. First he was turfed out of our club before he got an arse imprint into the CEO chair, and then progressed in his career to the AFEL where AFELX was his baby.

    I'm not sure I've ever said this, the AFEL actually did something good for everyone (by stopping their self harm of the game).

    The biggest shock here is that there is someone within AFL HQ that actually had the self awareness to admit they created a turd AND pulled the trigger to kill it off.

    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.
