While footy fans have been left in the dark, apparently broadcasters have been given the wink of approval from AFL HQ on a likely start date. That and all the big footy issues are discussed on this week’s Herald Sun Footy Podcast.
Broadcasters have been kept in the know by league headquarters, with Gullan revealing the AFL has hinted at players returning to the field on July 10.
But Gullan conceded on the Herald Sun Footy Podcast that the situation could change in this unpredictable landscape.
“There’s a suggestion that July 10 could be the resumption date,” Gullan said.
“Radio and TV have sort of been given the ‘wink, wink’ from AFL House.
“Get your head around July 10 … get your ducks in order.
“I know it changes by the day and they keep telling us that but word out of the media — radio and TV land who deal with the AFL — (is) that July 10 could be it.”
