It feels almost inconceivable to write that the football seasons are returning to normal this week after the AFL’s everyday game experiment.
Anyway, I think another NRL coach has gone. That makes four so far this season and the worst bet in the NRL would be that no others will go.
The AFL, on the other hand doesn’t seem to have the same degree of turmoil. Its major challenge is the distance from its heartland in Melbourne. That’s an existential crisis that actually rivals the soap-opera theatrics of various NRL clubs.
