    Apparently it didn't work with the NFL but I think it would be great although we have too small a market .

    Well I thought the overseas guys would get annoyed with us talking footy in the coronavirus thread . There's an NFL thread so I thought we needed an Aussie rules thread .

    Well i think the Mighty Hawks and my Beloved Crows are done for the next 5 years. It will be all about Richmond and Collingwood this year to get some kind of money back for the AFL. I am just glad us Crows traded a heap of deadwood this year Jenkins, Betts and some others to get those draft picks. Kinda gold now i think. Everybody is basically a year older and IMO the year is a write off. If we get to the stage where it is a grand final it will always be a suspect one. I don't know if i will bother to watch this year but i must say the UFC was not affected by the lack of crowd some great events happened.

    I don't know about the Crows but the Hawks are looking really good ,we have put together a great list , and give your Crows a vote in the poll ! I get now why you're pissed at a Vic clubs

    Yes Living in Melbourne and going for the Crows you see how biased the AFL is. I think the mighty Hawks have some problems a bit slow for the modern game. You have a lot of knee problems in your team. And some great players are to old. You have the best coach in the business though so we will see you back up in the top 4 in 5 years like us. I actually think you have an older list than us now.

    Interesting looking at the age of lists , there is only a bit over a year difference between all the teams . I would like to think experience would help make up for any lack of speed .
    I think the 4 oldest teems Collingwood , Geelong , Eagles and the Hawks all have a shot at winning it , also you guys . Most of the Crows issues have been self-inflicted lately . If they sort themselves out , they've got as much as much of a chance as anyone .

    We have no depth that normally costs us, but being a shallow season who knows. Our best 22 is decent but when we get injuries we have no one just keep loosing players. Last year was as bad as i have seen and not sure we can get much worse. I do think the older teams will struggle this year, normally the kids fall away at the end of the year but not sure now. My money is on Richmond and Bulldogs. Hawthorne had a great run but it is over. I hope we get half your success in the next 20 years and i would be happy.

    I grew up in Hawthorn , that's why I support them . Thank fuck I didn't grow up in St Kilda

    Ha Ha that's funny .
    Unfortunately my wife supports the pies
    The Collingwood Football Club has a magpie as it's emblem . We like to shorten everything so the magpies just becomes the pies .
    I used the club emblems for the team names , which alot of people use .
    Pies - Collingwood
    Demons - Melbourne
    Eagles - West Coast
    Dockers - Fremantle
    Giants - Greater Western Sydney
    Blues - Carlton
    Dogs - Footscray
    Suns - Gold Coast
    Cats - Geelong
    Tigers - Richmond
    Swans - Sydney
    Crows - Adelaide
    Power - Port Adelaide
    Hawks - Hawthorn
    Saints - St Kilda
    Lions - Brisbane
    Bombers - Essendon
    Kangaroos - North Melbourne

    John Kennedy senior was made and official legend of the AFL last night . He's the person that set Hawthorn up to be the most successful club in the last 60 years . He's also responsible for one of the most famous speeches in footy .
