AFL


#2209

Has the AFL implemented a State of Origin series before?


#2210

When the AFLX draft was on TV last Wednesday, the AFL was offering $10 ticket for adults for three hours at Ticketmaster website.


#2211

I was an Australian Football Alliance fan.

About the only time in my life I cheered Bucks.


#2212

Anyone know if afl members get into this for free?


#2213

Free tickets to AFLX this weekend until 12pm tonight. Obviously not many are getting tickets.


#2214

Thanks to AFLX (and other factors), the annual Swans trial match at Henson Park got moved from Friday afternoon to Friday morning at Blacktown.

I can tell you, they’ve pissed off a lot of my students. :frowning: F##k off AFLX, give more support to AFLW.


#2215

Maybe you should ask AFLY? Don’t worry, the way it’s going AFLX is looking more like AFLZzzz…


#2216

Where abouts are these available?


#2217

Oh shit sorry. The sale has ended it was just by going to the tickettek website. I got sent an email.


#2218

I see there are concerns about “the state of footy in Tasmania” again. Funny how certain sections of the media grab hold of issues at least 20 years late and think they’re helping and/or concerned.


#2219

AFLX is getting more tacky. A game of Rock Paper Scissors will replace a coin toss. How stupid is this game?


#2220

I feel sorry for you.
Dwayne Russell said on Sportsday on 3AW this evening he heard a rumour that next year’s AFLX would be a State of Origin format.


#2221

People don’t want this stupid AFLX they want a regular football match. Give us a weekend of State of Origin.


#2222

Yep, people will get excited about a contest involving a mix of the league’s best players, if there’s something on the line and the game being played is actual football!

The ‘gimmickiness’ of the whole thing is just cringeworthy, hardly likely to win over new fans and very likely to alienate the rusted-on ones. At least a SoO competition, even if played pre-season like AFLX is, would engage the fans


#2223

Missed opportunity to bring the lower tier seats in at Marvel Stadium I’d have thought.


#2224

More like NRLX

oh I’ve misunderstood


#2225

Wow! I have seen bubbles flying everywhere over at marvel stadium for the aflx. I thought that people wer having fun. I noticed that there we’re 25k at marvel stadium


#2226

Especially with Victory vs City in an A-League derby tomorrow night that will almost certainly attract a bigger crowd (even if City fans are basically dormant).


#2227

They had people on the ground though.


#2228

So if they want fans near the action, bring the seats in.
