Could be quite the own goal. Even with a closed border, couldn’t stop an outbreak.
Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if they quickly opened up to save the embarrassment of not being able to control anything despite blaming NSW for absolutely everything in their initial response to Omicron including blaming them for the sun coming up....
Lets just be clear for the record that WA now has the fastest growing case load in the whole country, by far. Infact the other states are now plateauing / decreasing
“When NSW didn’t crack down on COVID in June, they said ‘our gold standard contact tracing system will manage it"
“Then it got away from them because their gold standard contact tracing system didn’t work and therefore they’ve had mass lockdowns, they’ve had the economy tank, they’ve had hundreds of people die as a consequence of that decision.”
No! Tas has a bid for its own team in. AFL report on the Tas business case was positive. Perth and Freo can wither with the decision maker.

Just for this year. If Westralia wants to go they can then be booted out of the AFL after the season.
I also fully support the TAS bid.
I love this thread.
You can actually imagine what religion posters are.
Actually basing the two W.A. teams in Tasmania would be a great idea. Freo based in Launceston and Perth in Hobart. The rivalry between them would never be greater, as it would become a Tasmanian North versus South thing! PERfect (tm @JohnM )
You mean AFL or League, Holden vs Ford, Launceston vs Hobart vs NW coast?
The AFL will need to make some decisions soon for scheduling whilst dealing with the sovereign risk that the Westralian government has created.It honestly did make sense to remove all AFL games and teams from WA as of about week ago, but WA now has sustained and increasing transmission does it really make sense? That shiny new stadium needs to make some money!
There is no sovereign risk to the AFL, they have a direct line to anyone that makes decisions. They are by and large a law unto themselves.The AFL will need to make some decisions soon for scheduling whilst dealing with the sovereign risk that the Westralian government has created.
