Shocking isn’t it. Surely they could muster up some crowd recordings and play them in the background   :angel:

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. It was good to hear the "sounds of the game" though.
It was interesting to hear the umps warn the players about their language several times!!!
Good win by the mighty Tiges in any case. Carlton must have got the same memo as the crowd and didn't turn up ;D ;D ;D

I turned it off half way through.  No atmosphere and it looked like a Tuesday night practice drill.  Here we are being told to self isolate and social distance yet the AFL players are above this!!.  Obviously the biggest concern is money...typical AFL.  Shut it down now BEFORE the first case of the virus hits...and it will!!..lets hope it hits Gillon first.

"The 2020 AFL Season is hanging by a thread on the final day of the opening round after travel restrictions were implemented by the Australian Federal Government on Sunday.

We could be seeing the final three games for a little while if the AFL decides it's time to shut up shop and wait for the coronavirus pandemic to hopefully pass"



Short season.... :cheers:

Yep, I've been sayign that all along... it will just snowball down the chain
same with travel, same with food industry etc




There remains, though, a commitment to somehow play the remaining 144 matches of the 2020 season, which was last week reduced to a 17-game-per-team fixture.

How?

I watched 3 games on TV this weekend.
The AFL should use the 10 week layoff to teach umpires the rules.
I've seen better at the under 12's.

Gold Coast Suns football department staff have been stood down indefinitely and advised to explore their employment options following the postponement of the 2020 season.

The move comes after the league's unprecedented decision to shut down because of the coronavirus crisis.

In a historic decision, the AFL have suspended competition due to coronavirus fears, as the NRL and Olympic Games remain in question.

The AFL has forecast enormous cuts to club spending in a bid to keep clubs alive as they are faced with the existential threat stemming from the economic fallout of the pandemic.

Meanwhile, on Monday morning Port Adelaide announced that all their players and staff who went to Gold Coast for Saturday night's match with the Suns would need to be isolated in accordance with South Australian government protocols.

Wonder how much of a paycut good old Gillon will take to help ease the finances..

Its a bloody disgrace to declare the womens season over.  Surely they could have played later in the season for a premiership winner...its only a couple more matches.  Just shows how the AFL really feels about womens sport.....pricks!!  These women train and prepare  as hard as they can and didnt need this slap in the face..

Par for the course I spose though...AFL has been going downhill for ages..
