    AFLX Revamped

    I’m with Peter Gordon on this one: https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/aflx-shouldn-t-be-played-during-women-s-season-if-at-all-gordon-20190214-p50xq7.html All the money being wasted or rather gambled on this meaningless competition, while the Women are tossed crumbs.

    New Major Sponsor - Jaguar CONFIRMED

    Trouble with all that era of Jags was that the huge lump of iron at the front could get the cars up to really high speeds, but the brakes were from the same era...totally inadequate for the momentum that had been developed. They could never take a corner at speed, and usually suffered severe brake fade after a couple of applications. I’m sure that has all been rectified today, but all I care is that whoever owns Jaguar is paying us loads of money to keep our football club competitive. I certainly don’t want to be in Port or St.Kildas situation hoping that chocolate milk producers are going to fork out anything substantial in sponsorship.

    Round 1 team 2019

    Not sure Jones will be available R1. Just doing boxing at training prior to Maroochydore, and the video seemed to indicate more of the same up there. No running is not a good sign this close to season start. Still, we have plenty of options to fill the gap.....

    Mystery Injuries

    Flu...... Apart from the ridiculous notion that Clubs would not be insisting on flu shots for every player ( easy for Essendope!)...there is always the annual knee flu, shoulder flu, leg flu that Clubs insist players are suffering.

    Demons Grand Plan for Yarra Park Training HQ

    I hope we can get as much support for our proposed facilities, from the Federal government ($15M) matched by the State government (another $15M) as the Lions are getting: http://www.afl.com.au/news/2019-01-30/lions-secure-final-15m-of-funding-for-new-training-aflw-base

    Impact of rule changes

    When 666 is used the "wingman" only has to be at the intersection of the square and the 50m arc. On most grounds that is less than 20 metres away from the CHB position, so it will take about 2 seconds to reach that point. The opposition will be doing the same thing, so it is unlikely to have a spare opposition player on the wing..if they do, then he will be covered by the player coming off the HFF line...it is the same distance to cover. The rule only applies to centre bounces from the time the ball is bounced to when the ruckman taps it. ....2 seconds? That is why it will NOT apply for 99.9% of the game.

    Ollie wines injured?

    If he has popped the shoulder, some sort of damage has been done. Scans today should determine exactly what. News report last night showed him running around without any strapping. But then G.Ablett was shown doing exactly the same 2 years ago when at the Suns. Trouble was he couldn't lift his arm above shoulder height for another 6 months. Clubs don't want the fans to lose hope before the season even starts. He would be a huge loss to them if the prognosis isn't good.

    Impact of rule changes

    666 positioning will have NO effect on the game. It happens only at centre bounces, and it has been already estimated that the winger can reach the CHB position within seconds of the ball being bounced ( not when it is first taken possession). Clubs will still be able to stack the backline during the remaining 99.9% of the game. If the AFL wanted to make a serious effort it would have instituted 666 for the whole game.

    Up to 33,226 today ( 21 Jan). From this point last year we added about 15K to end of Season. So we are looking at close to 50K at that rate.

    Seems that Adelaide have been fudging the figures according to Cornes: https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/afl-2019-membership-numbers-kane-cornes-accuses-adelaide-of-providing-misleading-numbers/news-story/bb12219519d2e60c9780c377b6045f74?nk=a3f3f69eceec23e1e3bffc463ac32d51-1547723303

    New Major Sponsor - Jaguar CONFIRMED

    Not all it is cracked up to be. The delivery services do not make money. The company makes it from the software they sell to merchants to use their product. And not a usable product when the businesses get big. Will fail eventually.

    Random MFC encounters

    Sitting in a beachside cafe after a long walk on the Chrissy break, wearing a Demons cap to avoid the blistering sun. Passer-by chimes in with "go dees". My wife, who has little interest in football turns to me and says " It's just like a secret handshake with your mob isn't it?"
