However, rather than just rant, he has gone one step better and has developed a solution to the problem which will prevent teams playing […]

Freo – 2005

Freo Journo The A.F.L is doing all it can to promote itself, and this idea of the rivalry round is not so much for the clubs, but for the football loving supporters. The clubs and players of all AFL clubs should be playing each week as though it were a rivalry round – hard, solid […]
