There's absolutely no context to that statement.aside from the obvious issues with the weather, am I the only person who thinks a high scoring blowout (as a neutral fan) is much more boring than a low scoring slog?
Is the blowout 150-100, where the scores only separated in the last quarter?
Is the close game 32-50, where the side infront always had them 5 goals infront and the loser kicks a couple late to make it look close?
At the end of the day attacking tough footy is better than defensive footy. Who wants to see a whole quarter of defending with 1 goal? There's no more hangers, no more fights, no more bumps, no more one on one contests no more big forwards kicking bags.
We may aswell try and get one of those back and using the worst case scenario as argument is ignoring how great the 120-118 games are with different momentum swings and changing leads.
No one is buying a ticket to go and see blokes lay 10 tackles and zone really well, you wanna see high marks and goals.
