What exactly is it that we love about this game, that distinguishes it from the many other ball/large field games? For me the space that allows high marks, quick movement in terms of running and passing and one on one competitions. What I am not interested in is the tight congestion, technical frees and lock down/zone defensive trend. More subs will feed this. I struggle to understand why the powers that be can't recognise this as the main issue facing modern footy.
That said, 5 subs definitely means space to have two ruckmen, so will suit us in 2023.

I think it’s the opposite, the game started to become more rapidly congested post 2011 when the the interchange was brought down to three and then the interchange cap was introduced.
