Players from both GWS and Geelong have praised the EZFKAFL after a ‘gutsy decision’ to disinfect goal posts, both before and after the finals game at Optus Stadium in Perth at the weekend.
“We’re all about keeping players safe,” AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan said.
“I mean, right after players sweating, spitting, tackling and being in close proximity to each other for nearly two hours, someone could have caught COVID from the goal post padding and that would have been disastrous. We’ve already mitigated the risk during the club song by having them put masks on.”
“Now, I hope like fuck we don’t have a heart attack on the field in the next couple of weeks from someone who has had the Pfizer jab.”
Premier Mark McGowan was quick to dismiss criticism that it was just purely bullshit theatre and said he was committed to ‘keeping WA safe.”
