Not Swans related , but fitness guru Darren Burgess is on SEN tomorrow morning . Have heard some snippets and sounds like a good listen with things like that he agrees on more interchange caps which will cause less injury.
The game does need to be slowed down. When players get tired, the players with more ability have that half a second more time to execute which makes them impact the game more.
Lower interchange = need more players with football skills.
Higher interchange = need more athletes.

Disagree, lower interchanges means more athletes to enable 2-way running. Coaches will also set up more defensively to ensure they aren't exposed defensively and tired players have worse skills so play breaks down more often when players are unable to consistently execute their skills.

AFL run the NAB League and pathways in Vic, they are very much in control of a lot of what happens and how they disperse funding etc. This is very much an AFL issue. Make no mistake the AFL is big with the push in this direction.
How many recruiters etc are needed if kids are coming from everywhere? Lot less needed if the top end talent are filtered through a handful of schools and one schools comp. It's much more convenient.

The best tired football players come to the for.
The best tired athlete players get shown up.

With lower interchanges you need better kickers. Better kickers more one on one.

Is AFL an athletics program or a game of football.

Nice article by Paul Kennedy, ABC about the history and success of father-son, father-daughter rules.

St Scum will never be . Deewayne Russell is carrying on about what that rodent JB did
St Kilda actually have a fair bit of equity I believe.

If they sell their assets they can be debt free, but are deciding to hold them with the view of a better long term future. Moorabbin move helps with this as well.

Thanks for that, it really shows how making players more fatigued increases their mistakes.

I think in a sport like the NRL increasing fatigue can lead to higher scoring because you only need one fresh fast player to beat one fatigued slower player to score a try. This doesnt work in the AFL because unless you get a forward 50 turnover you need multiple players all executing their skills at once and in succession to score, a single miss kick or poor handball will see the play break down.
