Player Strike

Post by grassy1 » Sun Feb 05, 2017 2:34 pm

Perish the Thought.

But is it a Real Prospect this year?

The Pre-season could be off,but that could be considered no great loss in many corners.

Does the AFLPA have the Guts to carry it through the Season proper?

And does it have the Justification?

Paul Marsh,Scott Pendlebury,what are the Fans meant to Understand here?

The idiots in the media seem to think that the players will cop a massive backlash if they do strike. While I'm sure there'll be some, I don't think the idiots realise just what a bunch of c**** we think the AFL are.

Yep they should do it. the players should be getting what they are worth in this day and age, after all, with-out them, the AFL doesn`t exist.

Even if they start an hour after scheduled start time in the first game.. Just to let the the AFL know they mean business.
