AFL Thread 2

Recommended Posts

The article keeps referring to the “Italian pronunciation”. It’s a name, there’s only the right way to say it and the wrong way to say it.

For those of us of Italian extraction,  we've had years of mispronunciation.

Saw a bit of the AFL match in Shanghai on the weekend while having a bite at the casino.  It felt pretty bizzare.  Didn't look like many locals in attendance at all. 

Must say I was surprised that there is still an oval shaped sports ground there.  Maybe left over from when the Brits were there in the old days.

Midgets get 7k on the weekend, everyone asking why it's so low.

We all know why :rofl:

The AFL attempting to rewrite the history of the sports origin, to suit their narrative again.

According to the AFL's general manager of social policy and inclusion Tanya Hosch:

Quote

"We are aware of this part of the game's history being contested and at some stage I hope the AFL will formally resolve this but as it stands, we now have a statement that acknowledges and accepts the link between Marngrook and Australian Rules Football.

"This gives us a good step forward in terms of acknowledgment in future historical records of the game.

So basically, we're successfully rewriting history.

That article is a good balanced look.

It touches on it, but they always bang on about the "high marking" - which didn't become part of the game until the late 19th century.

Love the quotes at the end about the image making. It's so bang on. The week there's the doco about Goodes, and that's when they sign off on their apology. ****wits.

I'm convinced their aim is to keep their sport in the news daily, any exposure good or bad is fine by them.

they need segregation just like them "sokkah" hooligans, they claim to be "kulchered" yet have also proved that opposite fans can't sit next to each other, surprise surprise. Away bays for fans of all sports!
