Re: ~~Official AFL 2012 Discussion Thread ~~ ft. GWS

Why the hell do teams have byes this year?
Last year it was understandable because there was 17 teams, but this year we have 18 teams!

.......

IMO Adelaide is better place to live than Melbourne and Sydney.
Melbourne and Sydney is annoying because it's just too busy. Whilst we don't have much going event wise we still have enjoyable locations. Again this is just my opinion.

Adelaide Crows News:

Sloane will sign a new contract very soon.
Also Dangerfield will sign a new contract in the next few weeks.

Each team will have a bye between rounds 11, 12 and 13 to give their players a mid season break. Similar to the split round in years past.

Now I am not being an arrogant dick or anything but I am confident that we will beat Collingwood by a 3 digit margin. Especially since both Swan and Reid aren't playing.
I will be there Saturday night to cheer the boys on and everyone here in SA expect the match to be a sell out.
GO CROWS!!!!!!
Wow. And here I almost started missing Richie's one eyed Collingwood comments!

Adelaide have won games against a team that can't buy a win at the moment (GC), a new side (GWS), rebuilding sides (WB & PA). They've beaten Sydney (running very hot and cold right now), Carlton (I'm with Snrub...they're overrated and be lucky to finish top 4) and Geelong (I'll give you that one but they're not the same side anymore). PLUS your boys were absolutely flogged by the Hawks who finished top 4 last year and haven't been playing their best footy.

The Crows may very well beat Collingwood this week, but by over 100 points???? Completely laughable. Mate it might be time to remove the eye patch and look out with both eyes.

Because each team is given a week off during the season to have them rest and recuperate. It's no different to the split round system that we had over the last few years.

I'm curious mate, have you actually lived in Melbourne or Sydney?

Re: ~~Official AFL 2012 Discussion Thread ~~ ft. GWS

That's why I said IMO!
I just prefer the small city feel rather than the bigger city feel.
I didn't say I don't like Melbourne or Sydney, I just prefer Adelaide.

I wouldn't exactly say Adelaide feels like a city, more like a gigantic country town.

After all, your airport's runway is longer than your city is wide.

Re: ~~Official AFL 2012 Discussion Thread ~~ ft. GWS

I have an interesting question that I would like to ask you guys.

If all these Sporting leagues started today:

A-League
AFL
NRL
NBL
netball (don't know the leagues name)
etc....

Would a multi-sports club work here in Australia?

For example:

Collingwood FC (AFL)
Collingwood SC (Soccer)
Collingwood BC (Basketball)
Collingwood RC (Rugby)

etc.....

The team would have the same logo, run by the same owner etc.....

It seems to work well in most European Countries.


What do you guys think?
