Ok, I'll say it - it's been festering with me all year. I don't like it, it just makes the square too cluttered visually. I'm not sure why they would allow the Toyota logo to litter the goal square at both ends of the ground (at every AwFL footy oval) - well, ok I get it - but the greedy bastards at AwFL Central never said anything about it before the season began. Not a word - then, at the beginning of the year, they sneak in a bunch of grass painters to whack on a corporate logo at both ends of the ground. Keep the visual spam around the centre square - you've got it all around the boundary, on the front/back/top/bottom of each club's jumpers (and on the shorts) as well as all over the Sherrin. For me, it turns a focal point of activity in the game into yet another billboard.

PLUS - the logo is pointing the wrong way, it's staring back at the defender (looking inwards).

I think it's time for those Toyota blokes to get under control. I don't like it.

Polly, are you telling me that Toyota are making money from having their ads in the goalsquares of Brisbane and the Gold Coast? Commmmonnnnnn, you have GOT to be joking.

That annoyed me at first but now I'm so fixated on the Telstra Logo on the 50. It looks like the work experience kid paints it. It's all I can think about.

Can they put the logo on the excitable McAveney's forehead drive him around the boundary before the game starts and then drive him home? I'll pay for the logo.

Sorry about this, darthmarto but have a look at the size font they've used for OPSM this year. Some of the umpires are going to need to work on their delts.

I thought this was about playing young Griffin as full forward.
