Posted in Sports NewsDid anyone actually need one other season of AFLX? I’m so irritated that AFLX is again that I swore via this whole piece. However in fact it is a public web site, so I can’t swear, irrespective of how irritated I get. As a substitute I’ve gone via the article and changed all my profanity with antiquated cursing that’s acceptable these days. Golly, I'm so uninterested in the AFL screwing with our recreation. Extra AFL The undesirable return of AFLX Watts are you doing Jack? My 2019 AFL ladder prediction Western Bulldogs vs Geelong Cats: AFLW dwell scores, weblog West Coast 2019 season preview, finest 22 and predicted end AFL What's the level of this cockadoodie recreation? Who is that this bollocks of a recreation pitched at? Who’ll watch this bastardised poo and determine, “Hey, I’m going to provide Australian Guidelines a strive?”. Gadzooks, individuals who love Australian Guidelines are, nicely, following Australian Guidelines. Folks abroad would watch this reconstituted bullcrap after which be unable to reconcile why it’s so not like precise Australian Guidelines. How do you win folks over by pitching a caricature? Gosh darnit to heck, the AFL’s clearly watched T20 and thought, “Hey, we should always have our personal shortened, juiced-up recreation”. They’ve watched the Large Bash League and thought, “Let’s have our personal competitors identical to that – no present golf equipment, new franchises, blah blah blah”. T20 is likely one of the shortest recognised variations of cricket, however the guidelines of the sport are unchanged except for the size of every match. Runs are nonetheless scored by the batsmen operating. Hitting the boundary nonetheless equals 4 runs. Hitting the ball over the boundary nonetheless equals six runs. Overs are nonetheless six balls lengthy. Dismissals are all nonetheless the identical. Groups are nonetheless made up of 11 gamers every. The foundations, consarn it, are the identical. However AFL eXcrement? What flippin’ madness went on to tar the sport we love with these inconsistent, incomprehensible and irreconcilable guidelines that quantity to 1 gorgeous clusterbug? That is the AFL goubermouching the place they shouldn’t, pumping time, cash and power into this dang fruitless trigger. Jeez Louise, AFLX is a waste of darn tootin’ assets. And whereas the sport has been designed to be freestyling basketball with out the physicality, if one of many gamers from the crew I help is injured on this meaningless claptrap – zounds! I'll toss a glitter bomb on the AFL’s doorstep. (Michael Willson/AFL Media/Getty Photos) I perceive the underlying motivation is to advertise Australian Guidelines, however this cheeser is like utilizing badminton to advertise tennis. With this I imply no disrespect to badminton. This instance is to show that exterior of primary similarities – gamers swing racquets, there’s a courtroom, there’s a web and there’s an object they hit forwards and backwards – you may’t use one sport to advertise the opposite. Thunderation, I hope that is solely supposed as a muckspout promotion and never the supposed basis of some heavens to Betsy rantallion offshoot, as a result of all it should do is bescumber the sport we’ve identified and beloved for over a century. Hells bells, it’s like cretins who declare the media doorstopping footballers or barging into the rooms for interviews is sweet leisure for selling the sport. Yikes! How dadgummit many youngsters on the market are being transformed to Australian Guidelines as a result of Brian Taylor accosts some participant who doesn’t need to be interviewed? Or as a result of some media persona harangues an injured participant? Or some blasted panel chats casually and obliviously whereas a crew is operating via handball drills behind them? Nice Caesar’s ghost, that is all to easily say that the damned focus is unsuitable. AFLX is only a catastrophe of unrelenting proportions. You need to promote the fudging recreation? Put extra tooting time and power into gamers making appearances at colleges and soccer clinics. Promote the AFLW additional and let the groups consolidate slightly than increasing when the expertise pool presently doesn’t exist to help growth. Jeez, if you wish to have some preseason competitors that’s meant to drive engagement and convert agnostics and atheists, how concerning the creation of an AFL-sanctioned junior competitors? Think about 13 to 15-year-olds having the honour of representing an AFL model and given nationwide protection. Think about seeing the celebs of the close to future play. Think about how the following era would aspire to be concerned. However this excrement awash on the hopefulness of a brand new 12 months? AFL, please fug it off.
