    Yes it seems the AFL fell over themselves to try to pacify Collingwood supporters by arranging to put on buses. Which will probably run half empty. I suspect Victorians (including the AFL) don't understand the train service that runs from Olympic Park to Central for the Easter Show. Nor understand about the shuttle bus service from Central to the SCG on Event Days.

    It IS a beat up, you are right there.

    Very interesting interview with Neil Balme on SEN. He mentioned that Tom Harley had told them back in November, 2015 that we were trying to move the fixture. Collingwood never phoned Sydney to ask how it was going and Sydney likewise until it came out in social media. Both are at fault here. KB made the statement that lying is the natural language of the AFL, to which Balme replied "well it is in Sydney, but not here". To his credit KB nearly fell off his seat...

    I bet you are. But it still would be a more complete story if all the facts were out.

    McChins may be upset by the cost and thinks the AFL is throwing money at sydney again.

    Anything kept secret is usually bad when it comes to the AFL.

    I don't believe for a second that Collingwood didn't know anything about any of this. How could they not know? Don't they run the AFL?

    Andrew Pridham's tweet this morning - "I wish they would stop moving the stadiums around in Melbourne. It is most inconvenient to our travel plans."

    Yes and bloody Hawthorn, they say that they're are a Melbourne club, but they keep on sneaking off to Tasmania.
