Was at Nandos this evening, sitting eating my meal ... I hear from the table next to me "oi look, its Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti" one guy says to his mate. I look up and look around and see a guy standing ordering his food ... about 6'3, 6'4 ... skinny as a rake, African dude with braided hair and wearing a red and black hoodie (not Essendon). I'm actually impressed they didn't go up and ask him for a photo.

Was just watching a bit of Mitch Robinson streaming on twitch ... he actually comes across as a decent sort of guy. At least seems like a far cry from the early days when he seemed like one of footy's bad blokes. Funny how theres those players that start off sketchy and then mature, then theres the ones that just stay pricks their whole career

Cotchin really strikes me as a strange captain because every time he talks about being captain it feels like he wants to do anything but be captain. I remember especially that Captains documentary a couple of years back and every time he talked it just had this really weird vibe to it like “well I guess I *have* to do it”

And yeah to the above, it’s 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.

Seriously that Slobbo interview with Gil on 360 tonight was bad, even by his standards. How does he still have a job? Asking Gil how long the coronavirus will impact the AFL for and there’s just this awkward silence before Gil is like “I really don’t know, if I did I’d be advising Canberra”.

Tonight really only seemed strange to me in the first quarter and then I felt like I adjusted to it pretty quickly. In the heat of play when the camera is zoomed in on the ground and players it didn't really feel all that much different.

And I assume the AFL knows it too .. hence shortening the season. So they know if/when they have to shut it all down they have 5 weeks or so they can be without footy and they'd still be following a "normal" time frame. But yeah, it just feels inevitable at some point really.

The thing I feel like makes it obvious its serious is how many businesses who normally would do absolutely anything to not lose a single dollar are shutting down. The AFL being one - you think they would shut down the league for anything less than the fact they absolutely 100% have to? When that's happening its hard to understand how people can have the Kane Cornes attitude.

Keep the GF at the MCG but reduce the corporate tickets and increase the public tickets. At least to 50/50. What even is the current ratio? And of that ratio was kept the same at a smaller ground like Footy Park for example, how many could actually get tickets?

I think it’s honestly pretty simple. Adelaide did the wrong thing. Every other club has been abiding by those rules the AFL set out. Even neighbouring Port. If it wasn’t against the rules the AFL set out then every club would be doing what Adelaide was doing the moment they were legally allowed to by their state rules. Would it be different if it was a Vic club? We’ll never know, a Vic club hasn’t done it so it’s a pointless argument. That being said, I don’t think what Adelaide has done is *that* bad. So, give them a punishment but don’t make it too crazy. If they or another club do it again - beef up the punishment.

Or, we could just kick Adelaide out of the AFL and they can join the SANFL and we can have them and the best of the SANFL vs a best of Victoria team once a year in some kind of “state of origination of birth” style game which would be a new and exciting concept. Perhaps make it an AFLX match to really spice things up and give people what they want.

Or, just not restart at all.

Those are the only options, anything else is just wrong and risking the health of everyone to satisfy the Vic first agenda.

Pretty sure forcing people to stay in Adelaide or Perth violates some kind of Geneva convention article

Yeah this is surely the longest most players have gone without proper training since ... pretty much forever? Since they started playing footy? Summer breaks aren't this long and even when they could come back initially their training was compromised with regulations. Even players who come back from long term injuries are usually able to take their time getting back intro training and then come back through the secondary leagues etc... So I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot of rust all over the place for the first few rounds making for some strange games/performances.
