Might be considered a low risk site. Who knows. ?‍♀️

Given the Roosters (NRL) were also in the same cafe, I'm sure our game will still go ahead fine. The NSW gov't and the NRL will do whatever they can to continue on as normal, so it'll look weak on the AFLs part if they don't go ahead as normal. Not saying I agree with any of that, but it's how it will play out.

The problem would be if Victoria declares Sydney a 'red zone' and anyone who has been there since  (insert a date) goes into quarantine if they come to Victoria. 

The AFL has been pretty good at negotiating exceptions with the Vic government eg allowing North back from WA.  So I don't think it is up to them.  The Vic government is the key.

This is only the case for close contacts.

Tom Browne reporting Sydney tested & negative. Expected to fly to Melbourne this Arvo.

So the Sydney supporters coming down surely they are made to have a test

Maybe Sydney supporters not allowed into the ground same as WC supporters were not allowed to attend Geelong game?

Sydney Swans coach John Longmire and his assistants are awaiting the result of COVID-19 tests after visiting a Moore Park cafe on Monday in the same timeframe as a man who was infectious with the virus.

It comes as players and staff from the Sydney Roosters were also sent for testing, putting this weekend’s AFL and NRL fixtures on a knife’s edge.

God...what are the chances of that...?!!

Media reporting that Swans might have to stay in Vic longer then planned..  Seems, the game on Sat proceeds as normal but Swans might be stuck in Vic after depending on what happens with the outbreak in NSW.

Covid can go [censored] itself. Actually it does self-replicate so it even has that covered! 

Moore Park is where the SCG is located.

Hope he managed to get his BBQ at least. He made it to the Mascot BP for a gas bottle and the Bondi meat shop afterwards, so I'm feeling pretty good for him.

Best get some covid test kits, they come in packs of 24, although packs of 6 are available. They work best at low temperatures so keep refrigerated for best results. Take a couple and let me know if you can taste the contents. Best not to test too many in a single sitting as the tests all seem to come back as false positives.

The Lions Freo game is not the same.

Here we have a person out and about for a few days across Eastern Sydney with what is reported as being a high viral load.

Not everyone uses the Service NSW QR system, so there may be a few not traceable.

None of that is paranoia, it's a statement of fact.

Given the incubation period we don't know what the risk is of Sydney players or support staff potentially being caught out.

This next comment is not directed at you so please don't take it like that: it's probably best we don't shoot from the hip regarding the risk around this in relation to the epidemiology. It's obvious some commenters (and this doesn't just relate to DL) view all of this as paranoia and overkill, but it's worth remembering things can get out of hand very quickly.

And traces were found in the sewage in Sydney’s Inner West (where I live)... I imagine a few Swans players may also live in the area.

Brora Rangers who play in the Highland League in Scotland have just been awarded the league title on goal difference from my home town team Fraserburgh (grrrr) despite having played just three games of a thirty four game season. 

Should covid derail the AFL season again then we should be afforded the same courtesy. ?

I beat you to it, Rab (11.40am) but you provide the solid precedence!

And we all know how much regard the AFL takes of precedence...

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
