And what a great win it was for the Raiders too! And to think I took the line +15.5, should have just gone the win! 8)

We were woeful tonight, probably our worst performance this year, shows why we are just making up the numbers

Being a Carlton supporter you'd probably also watch Studio 10 or Adelady instead of AFL! :lol:

I struggle to watch any AFL these days, even games I don't have a vested interest in. It's boring, predictable and over officiated.

I felt exactly the same about the AFL in the early/mid 2000s and I'm the same with the NRL since the 90s, can maintain interest in a Raiders game for a half if I'm lucky but wouldn't even contemplate watching a NRL game without my side in it. Could happilly watch most mainstream sports here and overseas before watching a NRL game, could even watch an English Super League game as at least there's some atmosphere.
AFL is a godsend for me normally, either something good to watch while working or something in the background at another pub while I'm having a few ales but I am blessed as most Geelong games are entertaining in one way or another!

My pommy missus who only liked cricket before me absolutely adores AFL, thinks its the best game in the world by a mile, she won't even watch cricket now she's discovered AFL and even though she was brought up in soccer/rugby league territory I'm confined to the spare room to watch those! :lol:

The NRL has got better since their rule changes came in because prior to 2020 I couldn't watch it either. They've tried to improve the game, unlike the AFL which attempts to impose their officials into the game to find free kicks rather than let the game play out. I will try and watch Carlton games but even then I struggle to get through a game from siren to siren.

Looks like you'll have to prove you're fully vaccinated to go to the AFL footy in 2022.

And in '22/'23, will you need to show you've had your booster? interesting where this will lead...

I agree. This will another element in deterring people from going to the footy.
