What is the reason for women's games being so low scoring? Do they play a different style? Admittedly I haven't seen much of it.

Shorter quarters contributes, but also a lower combined level of skill across the field than the men's teams due to the elite pathways being only brand new, so most current players came straight from amateur leagues. Means more scramble, less precision passing, which is what the amateur level is for both men and women.

Most AFL players come out of the AFL run junior competitions like the TAC Cup, or the AIS, which are pretty much professional in everything but player salaries from age 12 onwards, and have been for at least 20 years.

- Adelaide's messing with their clash again (which was one of the better ones out there) and have gone with a design that won a people's vote a couple of years back - basically the tricolour but shrunk and with a white crow on top.

It's from the infamous rigged fan poll, where they picked the winner in advance and had it in production already, and had it starting the fan poll with a 500k vote lead. They hoped nobody would notice, but they were wrong, and someone built a vote spamming bot that proved it.

If memory serves, the 'winner' before they had to reverse their decision was one with a giant rendition of our ugly rear end traced Baltimore Ravens logo, that to this day the club still insists looks nothing like the Ravens logo and is tremendously popular with the kids so they won't be chjanging it. One of the fine legacies of the Stephen Trigg years.

I was given the job of making sure all my friends kids support the correct sports teams, after the oldest one, a 10 year old living in Canberra under the guidance of only his father, turned out to be a Richmond supporter because he liked the song. And he's also a Golden State Warriors fan.

Round 1 of the mens league is only 12 days away, so it's time for some FANTASY FOOTBALL

Unless there are a lot of objections, we'll dump SuperCoach this year and just stick to UltimateFooty, which is now no longer with Fairfax, so you need to reregister an account, but it did let me salvage the old league, so...

Welcome to GOON GOLDEN SPOON 8

The invite link can be found here, and all goons are welcome, from the die hards to the lurkers to our goon friends from America and Europe and everywhere else

The draft is going to be either on the 14th or 15th of March, so start nominating day and time, because I'll need to set it in stone by midweek.

If people want the extras, I'm willing to for the premium stats, and premium league control, to make things more fun this year

I want to see what the umpiring is like with no crowd

AFL umpires have been forced to train alone in a bid to allow the season to begin as planned on Thursday, March 19.

With the umps such a valuable commodity, all standard AFL and AFLW training has effectively been suspended.

The move is to protect the small group of people who have such a huge role in putting the game on - with no umpires, there are no games.

As a precautionary measure we have advised AFL and AFLW umpires of alternative training arrangements for the time being, an AFL spokesperson said.

Umps will do fitness work individually and be reviewed and instructed remotely via tech.

The measures come less than an hour after an NBA game was cancelled following revelations a referee had officiated a game involving an infected player two days earlier.

Maybe we could do Wednesday night before the season launch?





And yeah to the above, its hard to see how they get away with that for the whole season. Making them play extra games is just stupid too. Be better just delaying the season starting and have it as a shortened season.

I've set the draft to happen at 1900 AEDT on Wednesday. I've also dropped it down to 30s per pick, so we'll be done in less than 90 minutes, but if people want it pushed back to 45 or 60 we can.

Im happy with 30sec but 1900 is right on kids bedtime. I would prefer earlier(starting at 1800) or later (starting at 2000). But I can make 1900 so whatever.

I can make it an hour later, I just picked a time that would be right after I got home from work

Top work from a guy who has played 3 games in 4 seasons, and may be out of contract end of year (but is probably contracted til end of next)

We dumped a whole bunch of players last year, and still have a whole bunch more that need to be moved on this year as well.
