2 of the biggest issues local footy are going to have are firstly getting everyone back on board, having confidence that it's a safe environment.I'd imagine most of the compliance at local level will be done by the governing bodies who'll then provide local clubs and players with simple instructions.
Good argument. I'll be sure to use that no matter the outcome.If we win it, it would be hard for anyone to argue that the best side of the last 3 years wouldn't have won it this year anyway.
Different story if it's Collingwood, etc.
We're basically the only side that wouldn't have an asterisk.
I think they will need to keep the shorter quarters as a contingency in case there is the need to stop again and games then need to resume in a compressed form.I don't like the suggested rules. it’s looking more and more like we won't need midweek games, so we don't need 16 min quarters. 60 seconds after a goal is clearly designed for TV networks to get more advertising revenue and drag out game coverage.
Totally agree with this. I'm involved in grass roots soccer and cricket, and the noises around return to play sound onerous and, to be honest, a bit pointless.The expectation is that the rules they put in place as to usage and especially cleaning regimes will, frankly be deemed too hard for the already overworked volunteers to comply with.
I love seeing that.Hardwick smacks down the debate and lays down his challenge.
