I recently published an article in The Age about AFL club Hawthorn, who have won the last three AFL premierships and who run two extremely profitable poker machine venues.
The article went live online on Monday, and was published in today’s print edition. The response has been tremendous.
I’ve been asked a number of times why I singled out Hawthorn; the answer is simple. They’re not the only AFL club to operate poker machines but they’re the smartest and the most successful.
Consequently, they’re the best-placed to challenge the status quo.
And quite apart from that, they’re the team I’ve barracked for my entire life.
