    This. Can't think of one aspect where Sewell beats Kirk, at any stage.

    Don't get me wrong Sewell has been and still is a warrior of the HFC, but Kirk, well he was an absolute champion.

    I can't understand the AFL's logic in their attempts of slowing the game down. They have always wanted this fast attractive brand of football. Then an increase in injuries leads to this rule change to make it look like they're improving their duty of care.

    However in the mean time they make completely contradictory rule changes like playing on immediately from kick ins and these newer Holding the Ball interpretations which would n should normally result in a bounce (therefore slowing the game down) into a free kick.

    There is a clear intention by umpire to make players play on at all costs n a reluctance to call a ball up. Constantly giving players an eternity n encouraging players to knock the ball out or alternatively pay a soft free kick searching for a high tackle/contact, in the back or sling tackles...

    The ball up is a unique part of the game and the simplest way to slow down the game would be bouncing it another 15-20 times a game rather than penalize players with free kicks. It frustrates me that there isn't more during a game (our ruck dominance may impact my desire to change)

    Then you've got the advantage rule which is a massive shambles also but also speeds the game up. As you can see i could go on for ages.

    Like I said before. He hits that we go 1-0 up. Eto'o doesn't score straight away, but with the way we set up, Chelsea would've scored, but we would've had 11 men, and who knows what would happen. Alas though

    I read this article Small argument: big games or fairer draw this morning and in a lot of comments people were using the billion dollar TV deal to justify the unfairness of the fixture. It seems to get used to justify other things as well.

    My question: Is it really that important, isn't the AFL an NPO? Shouldn't the integrity of the game and competition come first?

    I heard from a mate at work that the Bulls charged less for entry because Rose didn't play, should the same thing happen in the AFL, for example when Ablett doesn't play for the Suns?

    Don't think it will ever happen but thought it was interesting.

    Bulls change the prices to force a sell out though. I dont think Gold Coast have that same problem or issue

    Metricon's capacity is 25,000.

    R1 vs. Adelaide: 12,790
    R2 vs. Essendon: 17,069 (in poor conditions)

    It's something they could look at to get a few extra people through the gates, especially when Ablett isn't playing.

    They have Freo, Port, St. Kilda, North Melb, Geelong, Brisbane, Sydney, GWS and Carlton to come at home.

    Geelong will be pushing 22k, the Brisbane game will sell out and the Carlton game will push it.

    For games against North, Freo and Port, GWS etc. etc. they really should look at lowering prices (not that it's very expensive anyway).

    I'm considering driving down for one of those games, and I endorse lowering the prices.

    Jack Watts named to play for @melbournefc VFL team Casey Scorpians, looks like he's been dropped.
