At least the AFLX season went quick, but still too long a season.

These days a stressful day can mean "mental health issues". There is a difference between clinical depression and being a bit stressed out, surely. Who'd want to be an employer these days...

Watched about 20 minutes of the new Ch9 footy show last night. At least I will have a lot more free time during this timeslot in future. Terrible. That bird laughed so loudly at stuff not even slightly funny, it was enough for me to say bye bye.

Pies v Cats commentators saying great game , only the close scoreboard kept interesting . The skills were terrible in a scrappy game . Amazing how players on $300k cant kick a footy.

I reckon I saw some of the worst football (especially Essendon) as far as skill levels go this round.

Thank God for local NPL football, which for me has been on the up as far as standard goes.

Lowest scoring round since 1965???
I thought the introduction of the 6,6,6 (Devil number) rule was supposed to produce more free flowing scores?


Essendon and WCE were embarrassing to be honest!

1965 wasn't too bad a year, VFL wise anyway. :)

West Coast won't care much, they are reigning premiers, but the Bombers were probably the worst I've ever seen (skills and effort).

Tricky question as their both as bad at the moment.

Funnily enough, i have heard some "experts' predicted bombers to finish top 4!

Can still happen, although you couldn't back that on current form. Maybe they are wanting to boost the odds? :wink:

AFL at it again...


https://www.sen.com.au/news/2019/04/04/ ... -revealed/

Quote:
Several senior Melbourne staff members conceded that instances of tanking occurred during their turbulent 2009 season, according to The Herald Sun.

More than 80 pages of transcripts and documents were obtained by The Herald Sun, revealing interviews that took place between AFL investigators and Demons coaches, players and officials in 2012.

The 58 interviews were part of an investigation into allegations of tanking that year.

Then-Melbourne coach Dean Bailey made a startling admission regarding the claims.

“What was said to me was, 'If I win games I would get sacked’,” Bailey told the AFL investigators.

“I was threatened. Yeah, I didn’t like it. I think it was a terrible thing to be bullying and harassing not only me but the rest of the staff.

“Absolutely, I knew if we won those games, I felt that I would get sacked.”

Melbourne finished last in 2009 and were able to select Tom Scully and Jack Trengove with picks No.1 and No.2 in the AFL Draft.

The interviews also revealed that players were kept off the ground, despite not having serious injuries. Players were also alleged to have faked injuries, making them unavailable for selection.

Melbourne were found not guilty of tanking in 2013 after a seven-month investigation, but were fined $500,000.

Former head of football Chris Connolly was suspended for 12 months while former coach Bailey was given a 16-match ban.
