    The thing is, half their ads are actually promos for their garbage reality programs. They know where the audience is so they drop all their promos is football when they could be placing paid ads. Advertisers must be pissed off to see these AFL telecasts chock full of self congratulatory promotion by the very mob pushing for more goals for more ads. Ch7 enemy of the game due to corporate greed.

    The 666 changes are the thin end if the wedge. What they want is to split the game wide open to allow LOTS more goals. All this pressure means less goals, less ads. That's not good for business looking forward. Ch7 has thrown the toys out of the cot and hey, they bankroll the game so they want more goals. Once the 666 set ups at the start of each qtr and after each goal is bedded in, then comes the 666 where they're the new starting positions for EVERY stoppage. Imagine the space. Dangerfield is the players rep and he LOVES these changes. He sees Brownlows 2 and 3 glimmering in the shadows for him. All that space. All those goals. All that cashola.

    That's why fans are complaining. Maybe not so short sighted at all...maybe they see through the bs and rulewashing.

    Are either of these two rules actually necessary in the game right now ? Or are they the Trojan Horse that Ch7 have pressured the AFL to push up against our castle ?

    The game is basically OK...it doesn't need this.

    They would be better off introducing tv timeouts in true NBA style.

    Or alternatively they could focus on developing players that can kick so they can break through pressure with ease... I mean that will be the logical solution to our high pressure gameplan. Our loss to Adelaide last year and West Coast this year were the result of a team at their best hitting their targets and there was little we could do.

    In both games the score exceeded 200

    6-6-6 is stupid, teams right now start with 4-4-4 or 5-5-5 which means each arc is less congested, by having 6-6-6 means you are adding players to each arc thus creating congestion, dumb ******* idiots.

    The amusing thing is that people’s television viewing habits won’t change.
    For one there is too much footy to watch now so we are all very blasé about it, and amongst that are putrid teams playing footy that you just can’t be ****** watching.
    Then there is just too much to distract t everyone now right at the fingertips. Once upon a time it was a real treat to watch a game on television, a football show or you’d devour every written word about it etc.
    These ******* dimwits really think it’s the games aesthetic quality that defines television ratings.
    You could have 1980’s footy and nothing would change apart from more ads per goal.

    Agree that the game is in a fine state and doesn't need it.

    Disagree that it will have any significant impact. Mostly teams line up like this after a goal anyway. Given it's 6-6-6, the extra two can wait just outside defensive 50 and jump in when the balls bounced and have an 8 man back line.

    The only significant impact will be when a team goals to bring it within a goal with a short time left - now it keeps the game open rather than allowing a team to flood back.

    I'm normally staunch anti change, and would be happy with no change, but have no problem with this rule. There's precedent with the centre square, and it won't effect much.

    Yeah I agree with you hear - I was referencing more an attacking ball movement team and what it means for their prospects once a behind is scored.

    You're right that it makes the penalty for missing a shot at goal significantly worse. It also makes rushing a behind much more attractive. I doubt the AFL have considered these factors

    The 6 6 6 only at centre bounces I agree wont change much at all. So why do it. As someone pointed out, the end game is at all ball ups, and this is how they are bringing it in. Trying to sneak it in by saying this small change hasnt worked, so we 'have to' go next level.
    The goal square change seems more likely to make big changes to the game. I cant be fkd watching the vfl game, but I'm sure next week we'll get lots of feedback.

    The AFL stumble from one knee jerk reaction to another, when all thats needed is the removal of a couple of their recent disasterous rules, such as sliding in and ruck nominations and then instruct the umpires on correct application of the rules that have been in place all along, if a player drops or throws the ball blow the whistle pay the free, simple way to stop congestion.

    Leave our game alone ffs and Gill needs to go, he is little more than an upperclass fence sitting twat, bye Gill.

    666 at ea stoppage is impractical as it would **** with the flow of the game , quicker ball ups and stricter interpretation of HTB are soft levers they can pull that clear the play

    They trialled quicker baller ups at the saints intra club. Was apparently a disaster and increased congestion, as players didn't have time to spread out or reposition. Turned into one big scrum

    That’s odd as the longer the umpire takes to ball up , the more players drawn toward the contest

    Waiting for ruck nominations certainly isn't helping.

    Do you think I want these changes?? :mad: I have consistently stated that if they just applied the rules properly, rather than having stupid interpretations changing every week that would do me. :rolleyes::fire:

    I said that 666 is worthless. :drunk:

    My comment re set ups from an 18 m square are just additional to people saying that it would allow Short to kick it to the middle of the ground. I couldn't an f&$^ if they introduced that rule or not. Except it'd change the game in a way that I don't see much use for.

    Goodbye and good night

    BTW nice win today
