If it was Rugby League or Rugby Union the best players would be chosen to participate on a world stage. In the case of the AFL and various other sports where players are locked into lucrative club contracts, the welfare of those players is paramount. Of the expected crowd of 80,000+ at Croke Park in Ireland, how many of them are aware that very few of our players are among those who have the biggest contracts?
Do past afl players no when to give up?
It showed. They never really cared about the ball..more about the man receiving it. I understand that rules about unfair play in Aussie footie are very strict and that heavy fines and match bans are meted out to offenders. Sheedy knew this and wasn't allowed to employ players in a match he stategised on brutality and off the ball slaps. If he wanted to play football and be a real man then there would have been a 1st pick Australian side there. It could have been a joy to watch and being based on football a far closer contest. Such a shame the aussie manager hadn't more faith in the footballing ability of the top brass in Rules football. It doesn't take an intelligent manager to use bully tactics or a brave man to hit when the opponents back is turned. Your 2nd string was simply a bullying machine. Make no mistake that Ireland can pick that sort of player for every position but we chose to pick a footballing team.
