Really quiet around here

But been here long enough to feel I can say it.

It's tough times I know but I hold each and every one of you in high regard.

Hold on and my total respect, regardless of the consuming circumstances.

Apologies if I misread the intent, we're all in this together.

Nice thoughts Capcom....and it is quiet at present.

It's a funny situation and a little difficult to explain.
I just have no 'feel' for football at the moment.
Normally at this time of the year I'd be glued to the site but at the moment it has a very low priority.
I'm in the process of buying and selling a home. I'm living in a hired caravan at my daughters, who is due to have a baby in two months time, and I have some concerns over my own health that put me in a position where I really cant afford to get a dose of the 'dreaded'.

Having said that I think there is a general quietness on site. That stems from the rather unique position we find ourselves in.
You see, apart from a few weeks around Christmas the football (and discussion) never really stops in a normal year.
During the season we have plenty to discuss in terms of games and player performance. Then there are the finals followed quickly by a frantic trade and draft period that takes us through to November. A couple of weeks break for Christmas and then it's back to preseason training and the anticipation of the coming season.

Contrast that with this period. No football, no training, and no real idea when and if things can return to normal, what that will look like and what the fall-out will be.

My personal preference would be that we scrap the season. It won't be a true competition. That doesn't mean 'no football' and if the opportunity presents itself we could play some type of World Cup competition over a couple of months, with a round robin  set up in 3 or four groups followed by a few weeks of quarters, semi and finals.

If Cheats FC can be equal with us on 16 flags due to a micky mouse round robin thingy all those years ago, then I say have it again this year and I hope we win it.

Cheers and best.

I reckon the elephant in the room is our performance level in the pre-season games and against Richmond...  It really took the wind out of my sails.

We don't have to win every week, but we need to see performance, skill and attitude...and the big one: development.

I guess, only playing in Round 1, we have not had the chance to redeem ourselves.  But to be honest, I worry that we can't...

That's because deep down everybody knows that any resulting competition conducted in the remainder of this year is just a cheap grab for your cash and completely Mickey Mouse(Spurious / Fake).

The AFL is just desperate to get "something" on to TV screens and to get the TV dollars flowing again.
Reality is when you stop believing in something it doesn’t go away.......

There is some irony in fans supporting a Mickey Mouse season yet bagging AFLX, if the AFL do a sort of lightning premiership style competition what is the major difference between that and AFLX?

Surely the AFL has some obligation to maintain the integrity of the sport, not just it's bank balance!
