    I thought AD said Melbourne breached rule 1.6.

    Melbourne's former football boss Chris Connolly (one year) and former coach Dean Bailey (16 weeks) were both punished with suspensions, having been found guilty of ''acting in a manner prejudicial to the interests of the AFL'' - rule 1.6, after 800 pages of evidence was considered by several legal experts, including an independent Queen's counsel.

    Refusing to be specific, Demetriou said the AFL was still working on the framework around the new rules but added that he doubted the word ''tanking'' - which his baffled deputy, Gillon McLachlan, could not even define - would have a place in the writing of the new rule.
    ''It's a part of a strengthening of our rules,'' Demetriou said.


    Obviously the rule is a general rule and not one put in place specifically to fight tanking, and hence why they are adding new rules.

    Don't see any argument for not having football on Good Friday.

    The NRL will probably always exist, but the margin between the two sports will grow further and further apart.

    In 3/4/5 years time the Suns & Giants will be relatively successful (can't promise a premiership but they should be around finals) which will cause a boom in those areas like there was with Sydney in 1996.

    In that time, the future of the Titans is not assured and there's always question marks over the viability of the number of teams in Sydney.

    The NRL ideally need to try and capture long term ground in AFL areas, but they can't because they're hamstrung by not being in the position able to take the large losses poor performing clubs with no significant supporter bases return for the league like the AFL can.

    So we'll see NRL's market share get smaller in Queensland and Sydney while the traditional homes of AFL (VIC, TAS, SA, WA & NT) will remain largely untouched.

    And that isn't a biased assessment, it's just a true outlook on it.

    i think the afl has done really well, theres a lot of money around and incentive not only to make it to the top, but even in second tier competitions. aussie rules is encroaching not just on the other footy codes but even on cricket - we lost players at the end of the season from finals in our cricket club so they could play trial matches.

    there's no doubt in coverage, money and professionalism the afl has taken a jump on the pack, but the nrl especially has so much room for improvement that its almost certain they will (and so will the lower tiers) catch up.

    not so confident about cricket though
