The bloke who made all of the rules changes is on the record saying he wants to see less tackling.I kind of see where you're coming from with the AFL.
Certainly we know that Garry Hocking has been monkeying with the rules to advantage his old club. And we know that the handbaggers like bruise free footy. So, yeah, I'd have to agree about the AFL trying to remove tackling to help out those primadonnas from down south.
Less sympathetic to your claim about social activism. I know how Queenslanders feel about social issues but you really need to get over the fact that women are allowed to attend football matches, and players can wear shorts that rise above the knee. We're not all stuck in the Queensland time warp and I would have to say that it's actually a good thing that the AFL are helping Queenslanders adjust to the modern world.
As for the education, ill leave that to our boys at 320
