Get out of the foetal position and respond to the comment you posted. What did the MC at Port Adelaide's gala dinner say?
I wasn't there so I'm interested to know.

More to the point about sanfl it seems to me that it is a pity that niether Glenn Elliott or Kurt Slaven were voted on to the Commission. It may have saved the current downward spiral of actually looking after the sanfl instead of the afl
Can someone enlighten me on who actually votes on this anyway. I dont get a vote as sanfl supporter
Verschrikkelyk!!

Afl clubs looking to drastically cut lists to save money next year.


Down to as many as 36 so no afl reserves in our comp looking more likely.


To anyone who gave the old “they are here to stay just get over it “. You couldn’t of been more wrong

Wait, whoa, hang on, you think we're wrong because we didn't predict a global pandemic and economic disaster?

Tssk, silly us.

If the two AFL sides are out, we're down to 8, there's going to be every realistic chance other clubs will not survive and if they do they'll be back to amateur level payments ( or less! ) at best. Hardly time to rejoice.

On the contrary I think the ramifications of COVID-19 makes them more likely to stay

36 player lists means they'll just (be allowed to) recruit another 20 players and pay them the minuscule top up wage to be on their State league list instead of the current Rookie wage under the AFL players agreement.

With the AFL and it's clubs cutting back costs in the new post COVID-19 world I've got more chance of seeing snow in Darwin in the next 10 years than an AFL reserves competition….
Let that be a lesson to you Port, no one beats the Bays five times in a row in a GF and gets away with it!!!

The AFL in SA is going to have a real issue to get back to where it was after we return to normal business and citizen conditions. Besides the crows grand final year, attendance has declined each year since the 2014 Adelaide Oval development. Power similar, although crowds tanked in 2016 but recovered an average 2000 in 18 and 19 but still well below 2014. So the honeymoon period is over and the only way to make more money was to price gouge food and drink for the poor sods who attend the games.

As for the current pandemic, Dangerfields representation of the players demands is a bloody bad look no matter the context, and it will take a long time for the pubic to forget. North Melbourne players having the police called out due to noise complaints after they celebrate their win during a period of real heightened public anguish (or panic) is another incident that will take a while to forget. Articles such as this are appearing https://www.smh.com.au/sport/sport-can-be-truly-enriching-and-rewarding-again-just-not-with-money-20200326-p54ect.html (Cue Ben Hook on 891 Drive making similar observations) and it is not hard to imagine there will be a good couple of years of genuine economic hardship where there will be an expectation that professional sportsmen play for a pittance of current salaries. Will the general population look at high paid sports people in the same way. I hope not, surely after an event such as this we will realise that the most important thing we have has been staring us in the face the whole time, COMMUNITY. AFL teams, particularly in SA do not represent our community.

SANFL needs to market its product as "Lets get back to basics and support your community, SANFL clubs = Community." They need to show the lads who are studying, tradesmen, labourers etc and then show them playing. Professional sports needs to be shown for what it is, shallow commercialisation of a game that we all love. Sure it produces a spectacle, but is also produces a guy like Dangerfield who represents a body of players that will try and screw the sport for as much as possible.

Carlton have ditched the Bullants to cut costs. Equation is simple, let the state league carry the full costs and the AFL teams can just pilfer when they want.

At the risk of being called a wanker by a Port tragic, what we said was when the circumstances are such that the AFL does not want to be in the SANFL, they will ditch us like a used condom on Hanson Rd.
