AFL - Good Ideas, Terrible Ideas, Too Many Ideas, No Idea


#3329

I hear the AFL are considering a night Grand Final…and James Hird might be interested in coaching…


#3330

Low scoring? Umps will start paying more dubious frees in front of goal. Scores higher. Problem solved


#3331

I think it was 4 dead rubber VFL games.


#3332

Yes 3 vfl games. It’s worth reposting this article as well as it exposed how shortsighted the test was


#3333

The majority didn’t want significant rule changes anyway.


#3334

If Good Friday Eve is a thing, then that makes today Good Friday Eve Eve.


#3335

Maundy Thursday’s not good enough for them?


#3336

wimm- point noted and I feel suitably berated. My post should have been “then that makes today Maundy Thursday Eve”


#3337

LOL.
SO tempted, but no.
Well played.


#3338

we are now having live entertainment pregame on ANZAC.

Also, isn’t it protocol that the home team is the first mentioned? This whole lead up has been Coll V ESS.


#3339

Will Birds of Tokyo be playing The Last Post? can’t see that’s it’s appropriate even if they are.

(Giving them the benefit of the doubt), thinking maybe they have gone alphabetical re the teams.


#3340

The reverence of the ANZAC Day match is slowly being eroded. Who needs a rock band playing before the game?


#3341

That’s a terrible decision
Hope they cop flack for it. Nothing against the band either


#3342

The band could have always said “no thankyou Gil, that would be tacky af”


#3343

Wont happen, but it would be great if the crowd turned their back on the band.


#3344

Haven’t they had a band play before the game the last few Anzac days? Or was that just an army band?


#3345

Such an awful idea
ANZAC Day is not about a band Gudinski is trying to promote :man_shrugging:


#3346

band before game or two tribes at 3 quarter time.


#3347

For many many years. But it was military staff.


#3348

I thought it was military and then an actual band. But obviously I was wrong.

In my defence I am almost always drunk by game time
