Oh, Morgan. With sensible, fair-minded thinking like that you’ll never get a job in the AFL.

At least we can have a Representative Season this year.

The All Australian team can take on the All Covid 19.

I’m expecting the AFL to unveil a Trace of Origin series during one of the bye rounds. It can be the All-Covid 19 v the Asymptomatic All-Stars

"Can someone explain to me how an Irishman in Melbourne testing positive on a Saturday causes the Fremantle home game in Queensland against a team from South Australia on Sunday to be pushed back two hours?"

It's very concerning how they are just making this up as they go.

How was there not a protocol in place that was automatically triggered when someone tested positive?

How can you have any confidence in the AFL's ability to do deal with this when their only objective, in front of player welfare, in front of community safety, is to keep the tv cameras rolling.

Wasn't there a protocol in place whereby the AFL season would shut down for a further 30 days if any player tested positive? Or something like that.

Gil has just decided, now push has come to shove, that he doesn't much care for that and so has chosen to ignore it. It is astounding the way he runs this game.

I understand that Gil made the auto stop comment a couple of months ago, things have been changing at a fast pace not only for AFL and the whole community
I for one give absolute credit to how well Gil and the AFL have handled the season and I am also just happy to have the footy back

What I abhor about the way this is handled is that the AFL make hard and fast statements on what process will be followed, then change to "make it up as we go along to suit our agenda". Just like they do with the tribunal and directives to umpires regarding interpretation of the laws of the game.

their agenda is 100% about preserving income from the broadcast rights deal.

explains why the game shifted - even Port v Freo is better than no game in the prime advertising period

I was under the impression the stadium had to be cleared of fans, cleaned and ready for the second game given the rescheduled games.

Look on the bright side. I can't see the Richmond vs Eagles game on the GoldCoast going ahead... so those precious Tigers who haven't left the MCG in 12 weeks will have to fly over West and Hub.
