2016 AFL Grand Final Viewing Parties

From its humble beginnings as the final match of the 1898 VFL season, to the grand spectacle that is planned for this year's edition, the AFL Grand Final has become the most anticipated event of the Australian sports calendar.  After six months of play, eighteen teams will have been whittled down to just two to fight it out at the Melbourne Cricket Ground to determine who will be crowned AFL Premiers for season 2016.

Same as it Ever Was; No Major Changes to Poll

Shh… can you hear it?

Silence.

Well, maybe not complete silence, save the fluttering of Eagles’ wings and Tigers’ paws, but other than the shuffling of several teams, an eerily quiet Top 20 Poll, the next to last one before Nationals’ seedings are announced at the end of the month, saw 17 teams stand pat.

Maidens Look to Defend East-West Showdown Crown

It began simply as friendly banter on the other side of the world.

Two sets of teammates, having a discussion as to who was the better side.  Surely in sporting history this is not an anomaly, as thousands of rivals have chirped and guffawed their superiority.

But this was different.  This was a group of women representing the USA Freedom national team at the 2014 International Cup in Melbourne.  Moreso, they represented two long established footy clubs separated by 3,000 miles of real estate.

2016 Nationals Game Day Process

Following the recommended game day process for players and club admins will help the tournament run as smoothly as possible.  The USAFL recommends doing as much as you can before heading to the grounds for games.  We do provide club admin kiosks at Tournament Central but internet access can be spotty. 

Golden Gate Sneaks Up to #3; Crows Still Tops

I’m glad to see someone is paying attention.

Last week’s poll seemed to bring a lot of opinions as to where teams should have been, especially towards the top of the poll.  And that’s good.  That’s the point of this whole thing is to drive a conversation and get people talking.

Another three weeks is under our belt, and while many of us were watching people jump and swim and run and flip and do all sorts of stuff for some chocolate covered gold coins that you wear around your neck, there was a lot of footy going on and it affected the positions.
