So WTF are we gonna do now? We won't even have ceasars training reports to get us through the week. Might take up wood whittling.

I disagree and in reality they could keep going if teams didn’t travel interstate but I am guessing the Govt asked the AFL to stop as it was giving some people the impression that things weren’t so serious and there was still too much social interaction.
If I saw this coming two weeks ago why couldn't the AFL?

I think they (rightly) figured getting one game in would be better than nothing. We all knew (including the AFL) this would be a one-off. I'm glad they played.

Sure, understand the sentiment. Personally I couldn't enjoy it at all...

July/August should be likely.

China contained the virus in 2 months from this point, then continued normal life for the majority with strict social distancing in public.

We’re significantly weaker in our response compared to China so far, but unless money issues become more of a factor, I expect the season to continue in 3-4 months.

Caesar will have to diversify and give us Covid 19 updates.

I think if we got back and played a round robin, divisional comp or WC style knockout starting at some point in August through late October we'd be happy. I think the 17 game season plus finals is fantasy.

Surely its a bit of a no brainer for Channel 7 to play a classic game on Friday night at 7pm and Saturday arvo at 2pm?

How many would hit the couch with a beer and a pie to watch the 1989 GF, for example? The Winmar game. Robbie Muir goes nuts. the 2017 Richmond V GWS prelim?

there's several seasons worth of great games. stick 'em in the slot, get ratings, keep things normal'ish.

What are they gonna re-run married at first *smile* sight?

Are you still in the US, hutstar? If so, whereabouts, and what's the mood over there?
