The draw would change after 2 years, so that every second season you do not have the same interstate schedule. ie. a rolling 2 year draw.In regards to fixturing, I would have a 17 round season, where each team only plays each other once, and the cycle would be over two years.
The problem is the club is number one in AFL, as opposed to the state in NRL.State of origin with the players actually giving a stuff about it. The nrl state of origin is massive and they only have 2 states to battle it out. Afl is a true national sport and their should be more pride and passion row resenting their states.
Get rid of international rules and have origin or an all star game a couple of weeks after the gf.
They already have that, it's called trading.Free agency made a little more open (by maybe a year or two) but the club is compensated with picks from the receiving club. F*** it, footballers aren't slaves, let them go where they want to go and compensate the club they leave directly via their new club, not by punishing other clubs in the draft. Alternatively, clubs aren't permitted to fire players until they become free agents. There's loyalty for you.
