Most weeks it will be Saints games + a couple of others each week.

1-2 on the radio each week while doing other things.

I used to watch a lot more. The reason I watch less is mainly Channel 7 ruining everything they touch.

I only watch North Melbourne highlights.

So probably 2-4 minutes per week.

They can find that much vision to pad out to 2 minutes

Usually just the full Hawthorn game, will usually keep an eye on the scores of other games and then watch the last quarter if it is close. First time in my life I'm more likely to watch a full NRL game than a full AFL game

Only Eagles games usually, unless mates are heavily invested in a game and are talking about it on snapchat I'll watch it so I can chime in on what's going.

I use to watch 5-6, this year 1-2 . I'm not ashamed to say I have no idea what the rules are , if someone asked I couldn't honestly tell them how the game is umpired . It just makes no sense anymore so have lost interest

Used to watch around 4. Now rarely more than 1. Was the proud to show the game to a mate from OS recently but watching it through his eyes it was a bit embarrassing was a bad spectacle it’s become.

When they run out, you get about 60 seconds to see if you recognise any players, and you also get to hear the team song at the start.

I used to watch 4 or 5 a week, when I knew what the rules were. I really enjoy the "modern game", but I lose the flow of it with free kicks for things that used to be play on. And once I've lost the flow, I disengage. The momentum of the game is a fair chunk of the fun of it, for me.

Not to bag the umpies. Their probably doing a great job, but who would know? Change the rules continually and its bound to leave the punters confused about where we're up to now. The very same action that was dropping the ball in Rnd 1 is play on now. But it really fixed up that pesky congestion, huh.

Try to watch every eagles game, the rest of the games I have little interest in.
Loved the sport when it was Australian Rules Football, but this new hybrid version called AFL I struggle to watch.

They should increase the quarters to 20 minutes again. Hopefully that would increase the fatigue and get the games more free flowing. Watching Carlton v GWS tonight was ugly. Yesterday's game of Richmond V Fremantle wasn't much better...

I think I've missed maybe 3 or 4 games this season and that's cause there was 2 on at once. Got nothing else to do.

I'm curious to know if there's anyone out there that watches all nine games each weekend. I imagine if such a person exists they'd be right into big footy. It'd be easier as well at the moment with the lockdown in Victoria. Does your interpretation of what happens on field improve as you watch more games? Do umpire decisions ever make more sense? Do you gain a better eye for strategies and setups purely just by watching what's given to us by fox? Interested to hear your thoughts.

I watch more classic football games (mostly Hawthorn, but also throw on neutral team games) each week than I do regular season games. Sometimes its just 2-3 games, other times it's 5+.

It’s becoming extremely difficult to watch any game of football in its entirely lately! Frankly most matches are boring the s**t out of me!

Used to watch 4-5 games per week.
Now only watch hawks games.

The constant "company line" commentary does my head in

Having issues streaming Kayo from my iphone/ipad onto my tv which is driving me bonkers enough that I only watch the C7 games unless its Carlton.

Fatigue is literally causing the problems right now.
