But how long before there's a couple wearing hijabs in women's league?

Yep, the AFL is digging themselves a nice little hole of stupid here.

Of course the headband is fine. It is less dangerous or brand-damaging than a man-bun.

Of course the hijab should be ok, it's got no impact except possible credit points towards elevation to a higher state of being after you die. But that has no effect on kicking skills now.

But now the AFL has moved itself into a position of picking which teacup it wants to keep it's storm in.

Is there an AFL approved head band he can use?

Yes, it's the GWS colours.

'Nat Fyfe's thin black headband has become synonymous with his playing style' - huh? The AFL should ban the Hun from reporting on football.

No headband for Jayden in multicolours eh?  Ridiculous!  What if Eddie Betts or any other indigenous player chose to wear a headband in Aboriginal colours(Multi coloured of course)?  If the AFL decided to ban this it would cause a major uproar with claims of racism and discrimination. Nothing better to do AFL?

Ive been on the Batfone to Gil.

He understands the gravity of the situation as only he can.

He assured me once hed dealt with his monthly order of gunk and mud tbat he'd put all assets to the task. Expect no less than a board meeting, chips AND dips and 'concensus'.

This matter is no fly away , hair brained matter. This is serious.

Thin edge of the wedge stuff.

Gil wouldn't fib, he was in between Chuckas though ..

he should get one made out of a pearl coloured material that changes with light (red and blue of course). That way he can argue it is all one colour but still have a red and blue headband. Would love to see the rules committee deal with that. I do wonder what happens if part of a headband gets dirty and is then a different colour to the rest of it, are the AFL going to start making players wash their headband every time it gets dirty? Could be like the blood rule, play stops while the offending player leaves the ground to get their headband cleaned!

Just a passing reference to the headband *ahem* issue - nonetheless a jolly good read about focusing on the real issues by the afl.

From the HS article

"But the AFL establishment refused to allow Hunt the freedom of expression, saying all head bands had to be a single colour."

Have the AFL even bothered to look at some of the shoes players wear these days?

 

Have the AFL even bothered looking at other integral issues such as the LED lighting around the ground, the colour of the hats the kids selling pies are wearing, or why my MCG reserved seat is always covered in bird poop?

Excellent article

Tennis betting occurs on what we would think are insignificant matches. May not be too far into the future when you can bet on the Dimboola thirds.

It is obvious that gaming has gone way too far in the sports context. Time for it to go just like tobacco advertising.

I do notice that they are getting a little more savy... when you load the AFL app for the first time you have to tick a box if you want the game odds to show..

No. They address really vital issues first, like......headbands!

If Jayden wanted to take it back to the 80s surely he could rock a scrunchie.

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,
