  1. Sunny: that’s why the 10 Victorian-based teams flew out to other states (Geelong and Collingwood to Perth via Sydney, Hawthorn – which played GWS in Sydney last night – to be joined by Melbourne in Sydney, and the rest to Queensland) so the AFL competition could continue.

      1. AFL season (if it gets there) set to deep into November? So Seven could potentially win every week from here, giving them 2020.

        Depending how strong Sunday-Wednesdays are with their new shows, as well as Nine and 10’s artillery to come.

        1. I think that the AFL season will end in Oct 24 (GF).
          Also to come in Nov is the SOO Series. The NRL havent announced which stadiums they will be using for the series but I’d suggest that they will play in Syd and Brisbane. Origin will then provide a big boost for 9 during November.
