AFL sucker punch as entire league axed

From Queensland Times

Reported by Jason Otto


The AFL has pulled the rug out from under the nine NEAFL clubs on the day the entire second-tier competition was scrapped.

As the AFL endured a dark day where approximately 20 per cent of its staff found out they no longer have jobs, the news that the NEAFL will not return in 2021 was largely overlooked.

For the Canberra Demons, though, it was a sucker punch.

According to The Canberra Times, the club wasn't even told about the killing off of the league before the AFL sent out a press release informing them the decision had already been made.

Demons officials found out at the same time as reporters around the country did.
