    Sad state of affairs when Northern clubs are scared of the repercussions of actually succeeding.

    Even the perception that they might succeed is enough sometimes:
    eg. Swans recruit Buddy => Trade ban, and COLA removed. Buddy hasnt won us a flag, last count.
    or Someone says Giants will win next 5 flags => AFL Prematurely reduced their salary cap, causing mayhem with existing contracts => offloading big names for the last couple of years. Giants hadnt won a grand final, last count.

    I can't bring myself to support the Giants, yes I know it would be good for AFL in NSW and all that but this is a club competition and the Giants Club is what I don't like.

    ...

    I do believe it will be a boring GF, Richmond by about 15 goals.

    Win/win/win - GWS put back in their box, some Melbourne club won and it was such a boring game that we all retired to the BBQ early for some great conversations.
