The AFL is making sure that they will not fail like the Brisbane Bears in the late 80's

I just hope that we get a flag between now and then otherwise we may never see another one for a long time.

THE new western Sydney franchise has been given extensive concessions including nine of the top 15 picks in the 2001 NAB AFL Draft to make it competitive in its formative years.


Wow they are getting Hodge, Ball and Judd amongst others. I think they will be getting on by 2012 though. I thought they would prefer players from 2011 draft. Razz

7 years where they can have more players on their list, more rookies and a bigger salary cap. I hope their 8,000 supporter base enjoys their premierships, because no one else in the world will.

AFL is screwed. At least we have a VFL team.

Western Sydney. Give me a break. You can't polish a turd.

Yep, and all stemming from a paranoid, delusional & short-sighted AFL! Good Luck folks.

Bigger media rights. Bigger audiences. Bigger supporter base.
I hate how it has to be done, but I see that it must be done.

10,000 extra Sydney supporters vs 10,000+++ disenchanted existing AFL club supporters.

A compromised competition will kill the goose and any future eggs will be foul and poisoned.

Ah, the same argument was used when the WA teams came in, and the SA teams, and the relocation of Sydney and the merger of the Lions.
After all those things our competition is stronger and attracting more people to games and to TV broadcasts.
The game will prosper.

the competition is compromised already and has been for quite some time yet it's putting more bums on seats at the ground and in front of the tv.

This foul and putrid idea from the brain cells-or lack of-from the demented little Fat Fuhrer is the last straw. Im with Joffa one hundred and ten per cent on this one. I SWEAR if this west sydney plastic bullshit team win a flag before the Pies, or beat us in a GF, I am finished with the AFL for all time, they can jamm thier ruined and fouled League of Cheats up their collective clacker. !!!!!!!!!!!!!
And SHAME on the Victorian presidents for allowing this debacle, and that means you eddie old mate.!!
