Just confirms what we all know - corrupt. Rule changing to disadvantage the premiership team. It’s a joke.
Also confirms why the AFL won't support Benny to replace Gill when all the clubs acknowledge he is the next in line. They definitely don't want a Richmond man digging into their dodgy deals that's for sure.

Good. I’d rather we keep the best CEO in the competition for as long as possible. Even if it’s to the league’s detriment.

Hard to find someone to work in the AFL without prior allegiances or friends in clubland.

You are of course spot on. The problem is half the footy media work for the AFL now so won't raise it and the rest are either too junior or have seen how those with a history of going against the AFL are effectively forced out of their jobs. Mick Warner for example had his AFL accreditation revoked for reporting on the Essendon scandal in a manner the AFL didn't approve of. All the media heavyweights are either Geesook sympathizers or in Gills back pocket.

The reason Eddie raised it is because he is out of the industry now and always responds in kind when his character is attacked publicly.

Ed has confirmed SHocking as having a conflict of interest that in most industries would see him sacked. In the AFL world though they'll all turn a blind eye and instead wait to jump on the next player that pinches someone on the bottom.
Spot on KK. Like you, was waiting for the outrage and all day commentary re: Eddie's words about Scott, Shocking and the AFL.
Nothing. I assume the only person who will try and have a serious conversation about this is Mick Warner, tomorrow night on 3AW.

Not for nothing does Mick get all the 'real' stories now - those who have a story that needs a spotlight on it go to Mick now. No one else has the guts. The Collingwood report landed on his desk, the concussion, etc. Everyone else is protecting their job. The AFL is without doubt, the most corrupt and dogy organisation - boys club, autocratic, full of sycophants who pander to some whilst bullying others, secretive and whatever the oppositive of inclusive is.

Even from afar, its obvious the AFL does not respect most clubs and most stakeholders.

........and most supporters and members despite the fact that no crowds bought the whole competition to its knees last year

SHockings job is already untenable given he's in the running for the top job at Geelong.

Fans are taken for granted in the same way voters are in safe seats, they just rely on the fact that fans will stick with their teams. The fans are not loyal to the AFL at all and the AFL well know it. But they know that they have us cornered because of our support for our teams.

They play North twice.
And people think Hocking isn't helping them.

What will happen if Norf win this week? I reckon they’ll implode. Salt already looks like he doesn’t want to be on this planet anymore.

Steven Wells has gone after years of recruiting duds and living on the 2001 draft for the last 20 years.
Hopefully he ends up at Collingwood

I couldn't find it, but there's a list somewhere on here of thier drafting over the last decade, it destroys the "Wells has done it again" myth that we hear every yr. it works for trading but the drafting has been rubbish

If you want a good laugh go to the Cats Big Footy board other matches thread.

They are saying we are kissed on the dick by the umps and duck for frees and 50's and our forward wouldn't kick any goals if not for the Umps..........

I'm deadly serious ........................

Lauaghable can you believe it.... I heard Geelong was the Ice Capital of Vic now I believe I've seen the evidence to back that up.
