Can't think of many AFLW players or fans that where for it. Stupid idea by the AFL
It was poorly thought through. It’s kind of like the rapid expansion of the league got agreed first without regard for the scheduling. Then AFL House went whoops, because the competition length was suddenly not adequate and they came up with this. And judging from the surprised and displeased reaction, they made the decision entirely without consulting.

It's also stupid because you play teams from the other conference. Resulting in the whole thing being useless.

It's such a short season with such a short finals series it's baffling they didn't just go with a ladder.

The best 5 teams might all be in the same conference .
I think even at this point, 3 games in, you can comfortably say that the best 5 teams are all in the same conference, I mean, Carlton are on top of Conf B, and yesterday they won their first game since the first season.

Going to make things a bit weird come the finals, and thats not even considering the fact that if they were played next week, we miss out with an extra win, and +70%.

Terry Wallace was talking about it last week, if they don't change it on the run (the AFL? never!) and cross the conferences for the finals - so if at this point, North would play Geelong, and Carlton would play Freo, the GF is going to be really ugly.
