Silly season is upon us. Yes it's the end of the football season. This year there are posters all over town, banners, ads on TV, plus the usual mainstream guff in things like the newspapers.

This prompted me to think of an organisation from many years that used to even get a mention in the Herald Sun, the A.F.L, no not THAT A.F.L, the Anti Football League. Way back before I even picked up a camera, I knew of and admired this organisation. A quick 'google' this morning shows me that it has recently been revived. I am very pleased. I will be signing up straightaway.
