AFL Thread 2

Recommended Posts

AFL fans brawling in front of children at Etihad Stadium. No arrests made and security made sure they left (after the game had already finished) and went their separate ways.

Can't help but think if it were an A-League game they'd get stomped by riot police, charged and given 5 year bans.

They tried that 2 weeks ago at Fanless Stadium and got slaughtered for the terrible crowd.

Its not working, winning isn't working - nothing will work for them.

You should watch this weeks Offsiders episode. Davutovic was on and plainly stated to the AFL hack Caroline Wilson that AFL will not work in China and the only sport that will engage China is football (and he had to say soccer being om the ABC). 

Now the Victorian government is going to spend big on promoting AFL by using a Victorian AFL team to promote theie s*** in China.

Then Victory will come along next ACL and embarrass their poor attempts - and we should be all over them reminding them of last weekend's miserable trip to uninterested China.

AFL crowd problems in Perth being reported today. Family friendly my .......

Also, an AFL journalist accuses the AFL of making up the numbers for their game in Shanghai.

They need David Gallop to sort this crap out. He’d have the kids pepper sprayed in no time.

What a surprise. 

No mention of the words "hooligans" and "riot".

Midgets being absolutely slaughtered right now for their **** crowds.

They've always copped it but last few weeks it's ramped up :xnod:

 

 

Any link?

Once again, they have falsified todays figure, with large areas of the ground empty. They claimed over 10000.

This was after they offered every member 4 free tickets this week. They "claim" to have over 20000 members (another furphy), so that's 80000 tickets they were prepared to give away for a 24000 seat stadium, and they still couldn't even a quarter fill it. This must be killing AFL Headquarters. I'm ******* loving it.

I looked at the graph of where their members are based.

Its broken down into areas like Blacktown, Hills District, Riverina, Victoria, etc etc - when you only include the areas that are what we call Western Sydney...

they have 3000 members.

So 18k of their alleged 21k aren't even in the area.

Now out of that 3000 - how many only hold a membership because it works out cheaper to see their other team play, because tonight they were outnumbered by the away team, and out of those left how many got their membership for free ?

So I guess this is the new bashing thread, was channel surfing and was checking the awfel giants home game and was a small crowd as usual but what was amusing that the fans were cheering for the other team that was beating the giants. Looked like 7000 people there and most not supporting the home team, what a joke they are.

Lol at the above awfel violence, nothing will be done and swept under the rug.

Jude Bolton, a victorian who played for the swans for over a decade, said something about the blue mountains being 10 minutes from homebush. 

Sums up a whole lot right there

Unfortunately AFL is big in the inner west, as more and more Bondi types move over here. They all go for  swans though hardly ever see anything GWS related.

if the Giants can’t pick up fans when they are winning they are well are truely screwed if the AFL stop giving them all the top draft picks 

The sad thing is see plenty of Football shirts about but always Eurosnob

He lived (maybe still does) in Annandale, nice enough bloke. 

From the 10 min comment Im guessing he didn’t take many trips to the blue mountains

Perhaps they are doing a cumulative figure.

The question is can the Midgets climb up and out of this humiliation.

They've always copped it but lately it's coming from everywhere.
