    No doubt there is some logic, but stuffed if I can see it. Obviously not looking for local support, as it would be a poor crowd if the entire population came out. Anyone know where the nearest...

    If you assume they'll be in Australia, I would have thought Western Sydney based on where they might get most support.

    Agree with the general principle, but you are saying Hoskins would still be a Wallaby if he had stayed in Perth....?? :rolleyes:

    Looks like it might be a 'best of both worlds' case, as it seems Fox may also be carrying the whole schedule via Bein. Some change over a couple of years ago.

    Now just need Nine to decide they...

    Got to say, that is pretty impressive. Fox couldn't even manage all the Australian games half the time, what with the different broadcasters having exclusive rights and what have you. Let alone carry...

    Pretty noticeable difference from the annual total clusterfuck it was when the Force last used the RA systems. Let's hope that it won't be one of the things that gets 'streamlined' again once RA is...

    A reasonable point X, but then the line-up has changed many times in the last 25 years. The question is whether the underlying obsession with the two heartland states has also changed, where it never...

    You'd like to think there was a clear idea of what they are trying to achieve, and don't just think that simply being centralised will somehow solve any and all problems. But I have to say that...

    It is Nigel Owens' take I'd give the most weight to.

    Possibly, but I think the big selling point the AFL GF has is it is probably the one big chance for people to ever go to one, full stop. Even at the MCG there are damn few tickets ever made...

    Perhaps, but I remain to be convinced by what Australian rugby thinks it wants when they struggle for points of view outside Sydney. It is ultimately down to broadcasters, so assuming this is still...

    While the AFL can be douches, only question for mine is the higher degree of lockdown to travel from NZ since last week. At the same time, if they can handle teams from the ES, surely they can handle...
  14. Can't see it being much of an issue though....

    Can't see it being much of an issue though. Unless the AFL was prepared to actually pay for the ground to not be used, they aren't going to turn away a full ground fee. So it would be put up or go...

    I doubt insurance would cover anything. It wasn't force majeure, they just chose not to show up. Insurance probably excludes Covid as a valid cause these days anyway.

    Well done Captain Obvious, the problem isn't the idea, it is all thick planks of wood barricading the way.

    Can't see how any of the advance fees or similar would fall to the AB account...they'd be looking to get that back from RA. Cancellation costs for the quarantine hub, accommodation, etc, maybe...I...

    Got to feel that not being willing to fly a day early indicates a certain lack of commitment to making it work. Particularly compared to the Wallabies flying to NZ early before the first BC match,...

    And didn't they change the date on short notice? That alone would normally see a significant amount of wasteage, yet everyone seems to have accommodated it. I seriously doubt that would have happened...

    Only if RA are paying to use it cold. There is no return on investment if they are paying millions just so someone will give them thousands back for venue hire.

    For RA absolutely, and IMO WA is definitely their best bet when it comes to finding a hungry audience if they are set on a double header. But nothing in it from the point of view of the WA gov't wrt...

    Sounds to me like a play for money from the WA gov't. Don't know why they would bother though, given there would be zero economic benefit from travelling fans. If they want the seats that is fine,...

    Disagree with your first statement. It will look very similar to the spread of cases and thousand odd deaths they're saying constitute acceptability for dropping all the barriers (assuming they've...

    I don't disagree with the sentiment, but do think you've got your premise wrong. They are persistently not learning, probably because they are being told they are getting it right. Minus the partial...
