    I mean it changes match days, but that's not the issue. I don't see how big clubs have an advantage over small clubs on match day, it's Monday-Friday that's the issue.

    Agree or disagree, Kingy is a great footy mind. Genuinely takes his job as an analyst/commentator seriously and clearly thinks about the game 24/7. Love him.

    Yeah King is the sort of bloke that you know watches every game like it's his job (which it is). Knows the going ons with all clubs and doesn't deal in gossip. Not afraid to stick his neck out.


    Loves a bounce down the wing too.

    He's getting better and better. Very interesting talking about how Malthouse was framing his position at Carlton with his quotes leading up to the season, quite true.

    The AFL has managed its expansion very well, much better than NRL. Mind you, the fact the ARL was expanding then the competition decided to devour itself did the game no favours. Make no mistake, Super League was the biggest single detrimental thing to ever happen to league in Australia. In the years immediately preceding the split, league was doing really well. There was a huge amount of damage done to the game when it split.

    You weren't alone there. I think it ruined it for the vast majority of supporters.

    Super League broke about a week before my grandfather died. He played for Balmain pre-war and was a huge lover of the game. I remember him saying to me the day it happened "The game's ****ed itself over". He was right.

    Then again, he was right about most things. A great man.

    sounds like a good bloke.

    I actually started watching again in 05. Bought a mini footy at the start of the year and put it on the dash of the truck i was driving at the time. such good timing

    I've thought about Kingy's solution to equalisation overnight.

    I think he underestimates how much the "Monday to Friday" work of clubs has on their performance - recovery, training, mentoring etc.

    That being said, I still think his idea would even up things, even if slightly. And importantly, even if it did not help equalisation, it would be ****ing awesome to see the coaches go "mano a mano" with less use of technology, stats, video analysis etc. during game-time.

    Either way, I find it incredibly interesting.
