    What unpopular AFL opinions do you have? - Part 2

    The shape/size of the ball has changed since the 1990's. It was smaller then. Or players hands are now smaller. Or my eyes deceive me.

    Has the shape of the sherrin changed since the 90's?

    And has it impacted the game? I really want a final answer to this question. Watching throwback games this week, such as Carl v Ess 1993 round 2, the red ball looks sleeker and narrow. More like a gridiron ball. Kouta picks it up in his one hand and it disappears in his mitt, like it does in...

    Should I have the right to a club membership refund?

    But the club would be there to HELP us. Aren't we lucky.

    Would you join an AFL fans union/association? What could they achieve?

    The current AFL Fans Association is a joke. If they were serious, then I would have seen them outside at the MCG asking me to join up. I think fans need a real union and this could be the best time to create one. so.... Would you ever join a legit fans union? Would you pay membership...

    Should I have the right to a club membership refund?

    Fans will NEVER be respected. I think it is pathetic that the clubs are NOT saying: "Refunds available to everyone.... but we desperately need your money". Instead they say: "Call the club, if you are having HARDSHIP then WE will always be there to HELP YOU" They say we are the most important...

    16 minute quarters - the media push

    None of this will happen for one reason: money. 17 games = smaller player contracts. Shorter games, 16 minute quarters = fans abandon attending matches and buying memberships. The only thing the AFL could possibly do to change the structure of AFL is to reduce the game length by about 10 min...

    Mega Thread Coronavirus & the AFL - season postponed. Part 2 * CONTINUED ABUSE WILL NOT BE TOLERATED *

    Lol. Trump is not doing fine. I watch Trump ever day for the laughs and because he is so bad. Yesterday he said that he hid the facts about Covid from the America people for the last 4 weeks because he wanted them to have hope. He is literally killing people when he talks.

    16 minute quarters - the media push

    The AFL want 2 halves of 32 minutes each. So yes, you are doing it exactly right.

    16 minute quarters - the media push

    People suggest the 17 game season as if it is the great equalizer. What about home ground advantage? What if you play 3 of the top 4 teams interstate? Or off short breaks? I always believed that the more games you play the more even things become. It is like going to the casino: you may get...

    What unpopular AFL opinions do you have? - Part 2

    Yeah, your thinking is the exact reason prior opportunity kept growing and growing and now has stuffed up the game. People wanted to see players "beating" the tackler. The tackler is not rewarded and we end up with 30 players or more at stoppages, and most people are miserable. Nowadays you...

    If the season is canceled or significantly shortened, what’s happens to the 2020 Draft?

    The draft age must be pushed back to 19. We know that list sizes will most likely be reduced, perhaps to 35. And salary cap reduced, perhaps to 7 million. There is no room for 4 x 18 year olds on your list who might not make it. 19 year old drafts will be much less speculative, much easier...

    Autopsy Round 1, 2020: Hawks defeat the Lions

    tige, one time i had a different opinion and you told me what i said was rubbish, total and utter bullshit, and inept. I thought that was a bit negative (but maybe i misread the tone).

    16 minute quarters - the media push

    G. Whately on AFL 360 quoted Winston Churchill... "Never waste a good crisis". He said it gleefully.

    16 minute quarters - the media push

    I don't have proof, but I will say that the adds between goals are now longer and this has made the quarters longer. Often there is the add and then also the "brought to you by" stinger. In the recent past, the players and umpires were not in their positions after a goal waiting around for the...

    16 minute quarters - the media push

    So true. The AFL ground is too big. You often have to look at the scoreboard to watch what is happening on the oppo wing or oppo forward line.... unless you have great seats. If quarters are 16 mins... and then add longer quarter time breaks... why would you attend? (except a deep love of...
