    #AFL Round 6 Weekly Discussion Thread

    It has just been reported on ABCNews24 that the AFL are about to hold a press conference to 'make an announcement'. It is predicted it will be the rubber stamping of a ......twilight GF. They just can't leave the game alone......

    In regard to this round's games.....a real thriller tonight for Friday footy! Game of the Round.....probably us and Geelong, if we perform. The Western Derby should be a good game and Tigers v Pies could be interesting. Have a great weekend! Go Swans!

    On another note, the AFL really should declare this as advertising content, not news, given their commercial arrangement with Crownbet. It's not even worthy of a standalone piece, given all of the stats are already in the match preview, and then some. Wonder if this will become a regular thing? Doggies a lock? Or do the stats say Carlton? - AFL.com.au

    AFL has a ridiculous sense of self importance. No important in the big picture of society.

    So, another Friday night thriller involving Carlton...

    They did show a bit towards the end. Cripps is good.

    Does anyone else feel that skills are down in general this year? I know it's very anecdotal, based on what games I see, but I seem to be thinking "plenty of intent let down by poor execution" in a lot of games. Cobwebs are normally shaken out by now, but almost feels like they aren't.

    Just saw some GWS v Lions highlights and I think Hipwood has more chance of being the next Buddy than Joe Daniher has. His 'long bomb' goal today was very Buddy like......boom!

    Yep, let's call a press conference to announce that something that has been the case for around 120 years isn't changing. STOP THE PRESSES!
    My opinion is objective truth in its purest form
