Funny. As to player challenges what a gutless, cover-your-ass proposal. Players already challenge. You can see it on TV when they scream, "I TOUCHED THE ******* BALL!!!!"

The AFL is steadily undermining the authority of the umpire with every little rule interpretation tweak they make and then they wonder why people are losing respect for them (and they find it hard to get umpires through the system). Give the umpires more authority, not less. Make the game less technical and scientific, not more. Pretty much do the opposite of every urge and instinct the AFL has. The AFL should hire George Kostanza to front office instead of Hocking. The game would be better for it.

He is spot on. They want to shorten the length of the game but in recent times they've added in score reviews, and now potential score reviews triggered by the captain which would probably lengthen the time of the game by the same amount they'd cut half time.

Kind of reminiscent about how the AFL wants to reduce stoppages and congestion, but ban rules such as the third man up which clears the stoppage area and implement rules such as the 6-6-6 which inhibits using outnumbers to distribute the ball out of congestion.
