AFLX Draft - you won’t believe which four players are going to suffer Windy Hill Flu


#221

Drawing in the Records and the ad’s on the big screen at half time are my childhood highlights:

“KFC I LIKE IT LIKE THAT”
“OH PLUGGER, OH WHAT A WHOPPER”


#222

And the yodelling Fosters Light Ice with the skier.


#223

Super pumped for this.


#224

My 9yo son loves Aussie Rules and the Bombers are his number 1 team of any sport.
He wants to watch the Women’s ODI instead of AFLX.
Says alot for both sports in my opinion.

SEN talkback was pretty funny this morning. At least six calls followed this rough template

Caller: “Dunno why everyone’s hating on it. It’s just a bit of fun! Could go alright.”
Host: “So are you attending/watching?”
Caller: “…no.”


#226

Oooft. Better avoid the whole Docklands area this evening because the next step will be forcing passers by into the stadium.


#227

Have to admit to being half tempted to taking a sneaky look at McGrath tonight. Thankfully I don’t know who is playing for I can’t possibly justify tuning in unless I know when he is playing. Stay strong Ivan


#228

Am watching - it’s not a great spectacle but it’s the closest thing for a footy starved fan. Good to see Shiel & McGrath.


#229

He just played. Sold some impressive candy. The crowd even went “Ooooooh” when he did it.

He then kicked a point. But still impressive candy selling.

#231

It’s like Ulysses and the sirens. Have to resist AFLX’s wanton calls.


#232

Disappointing


#233

And tippa!

AFL equiv of a dry root - fun for a once off, but not much chop long term


#234

My question simply is, Why?
Surely serving up this ■■■■■ doesn’t help sell it to anyone?

How about a JLT type comp for U22s or something like that?
Anything would be more interesting and compelling.


#235

They’d have been better served to bring some ntfl teams down to Melbourne, Tiwi bombers would get more bums on seats.


#236

One thing I got out of it was I didn’t know gresham was indigenous…


#237

Luke Darcy has to be the biggest spud of a commentator of all time. Total drop kick.


#238

How would you know that UNLESS YOU WERE WATCHING IT


#239

It was talked up a bit in his draft year, he may have been the first Indigenous captain of one of his rep teams.


#240

Yeah I have it on, wanted to watch Shiel, McGrath and Walla
