    I love how they complain that AFL trolls get short shrift here.. like Rugby League trolls get the run of bigfooty.. lol

    Come to LU boys, don't be scared, don't wee your pants at the thought of getting whipped in TFC..

    The bottom line on this one is that the AFL's story changed after it was revealed that their quoted playing numbers were bullshit..

    I can only hope that the AFL gets called out on its lies by jurnos more.

    They post bs figures attending GWS games, bs player numbers...

    The whole sport is a rubbery mess that can p!ss off back to Melbourne.

    I wouldn't otherwise care to much about the bullshit but they are using it to rip off ordinary tax payers in NSW. It's quite the scam they have going on.

    Why the hell are AFL fans getting up in arms about this, and threatening politicians and journalists? Their code has been shown to be clearly in the wrong and they want to have a go at the people who have uncovered the truth and have made a just decision???

    I doubt it.

    Olds park (st george afl club home ground) had turf relaid in feb or so, then pulled up in ~march to put in drainage (in this order, wtf?).

    They also have just laid the slab for an increase to the club house 1/3 funded by afl, 1/3 by council and 1/3 by the club.

    Yep, they've done well out of it. Blacktown Council put up plenty for their white elephant (although, that was more to do with the incumbent mayor having a dummy spit at the NRL) and the State Government putting up plenty for a stadium that is about 3 times the capacity required by the Breakfast Point AFL team..

    Hopeful our pollies will remember the old adage "Once bitten, twice shy".

    It means numbers are flexible depending on whether theyre questioned or not.

    means they probably only play Auskick at school and don't ever actually play a game of AFL'

    that's my guess

    That's exactly what it means and it was hilarious to see them suddenly add them when they came clean on their lies about player numbers.
    It looks a lot more reasonable than the Birchgrove proposal, the soccer club were going to lose it's use for training for the entire week as well as on weekends.

    I love that press release. It is missing one paragraph though:

    'We fudged our figures and got caught red handed. Now we are trying to spin our way out of it'!

    i'd say the aim was for Soccer to be moved

    AFL fears Soccer as was seen in the WC bid

    Soccer scares the hell out of AFL. Their reaction to the World Cup bid put paid to any dissenting voices on that story. bigpoofy went into maximum paranoia overdrive.

    on sports morning 1017 they even downsized it from 238 to 166 players in that local area.They said in the 238 they included coaches,runners,umpires and team mascots.

    This is the real battle for the west/sydney etc. We all know it, soccer is the closest natural competitior to AFL in this country because it threatens their demographic and their name.

    I listened to the Rugby League Podcast from today and the AFL one from yesterday morning and i do not think this is the case. The AFL podcast with some bloke called 'Harley' is hilarious. The AFL spin he spews out is outrageous and the commentators take the piss out of him asking if having a 'kick to kick' equals being a registered AFL player.

    It is clear he is on the defensive and, just like our Bigpoody mates, blames the media for the clear exagerration (fraud?) commited by the AFL. Problem is the interviewers know he is ful of shit and basically tell him so!

    Some of the usual suspects at BF seem to think the afl has somehow been vindicated. I'm glad they finally got called on their dodge numbers and aggressive tactics in pushing out other sports.
