that's 4 groups and 18 doesn't go into 4
I think his idea may have had another group, so that 2 had 3 teams. Don't really want to listen to the podcast again but you get the idea.

Fat Hutchie has been wanting to have his NFL inspired Wild Cards for years.

Every year they go the US to try and Americanise our Indigenous game even more and destroy it for the benefit of the corporate $$

Wankers.

After being starved of games, would you care if it's a cash grab when you get to see RFC vs Pies twice?
I'd give my left one to see any footy of any kind at the moment so I'd welcome it in any form.

My only rider would be that if anything less than a 17 game season plus finals is possible then I don't think it should count as an official premiership.

It is one of the wonders of the modern world how this bloke has ingratiated himself with the upper echelons of the league. A generation ago he would not have got past ghosting players columns for Inside Football

It's one of the better ideas i've heard.
Maxwell Llyod suggesteded expanding this seasons into next year and making it a super season of 35+ games.
Thus making even more games irrelevant.... Turning crowds off for 8!clubs for at least 15?weeks. Once the pecking order is established.

These %#^#s will completely destroy our game if we let those with special interests take control and succeed only in disenfranchising the fans.

If 17 R can be played then the GF would produce a genuine premier. If an abridged season of 8-10w , it seem farcical to declare a premier with such a bias to anyone’s draw

I've heard this argument t on radio ... Something like whoever wins not being " Legitimate premiers"
In a 22 game season half the time is spent analysing fixture bias, our 7 MCG run home was meant to delegitimise our 19 flag. I say BS to all those arguments.
The biggest sporting event in the world is decided in 4 weeks ... groups drawn out of a hat....one bad game and the best ranked team is gone... And the world applauds the victor.
As long as there is some finals series however constructed the premier is legit.
If world cups in cricket can ve decided on duck worth Lewis system footy is in a good place.

Adelaide been caught out:

The club has reportedly been sprung housing 16 players in a Barossa Valley retreat where they have been accused of training together.

The 16 players and an assistant coach were reportedly a contingent of players called back to Adelaide from interstate in the past 48 hours.
