The AFL had hoped to make an announcement on the season restart as early as Wednesday. Now, the word is that the wait could stretch to the end of the weekend.
This week on the Real Footy podcast, Caroline Wilson, Michael Gleeson and Peter Ryan discuss what is causing the hold-up. How has the Crows’ breach of AFL guidelines thrown a spanner in the works? Which governments are likely to agree to let teams play under a fly-in, fly-out model?
Also this week: did the penalties handed out to the Crows for their breach of AFL rules go far enough? Should they have focused on individuals, or the club as a whole? And what sort of penalties might be handed out in future for players and officials who breach social distancing rules.
The panel also answers some listener questions on topics including Victorian bias, the Brownlow, Buddy Franklin and state of origin.
