If/when it goes back to 20 mins many will complain it’s too long. Will be the discussion of 2022, if there’s a vaccine by then.

The game is too taxing for more games I'd rather full game time reinstated, play everyone once and a longer finals series somehow.

I know this is never gonna happen because it cuts home games & would hurt clubs financially, although perhaps crystal balling there could be 4 to 6 new clubs around the country when we are all brown bread down the track & it would work.

20 definitely started to feel like too long given the slow, stoppage fest nature of the modern game, but 16 also feels a little light on at times. 18 sounds like the perfect compromise - in fact, it's probably just taking it back to the sort of quarter lengths we used to have (roughly 30 minutes including time on) before stoppages took over the game.

As do I and 18 game season play biggest rivals twice done as fair as it could be.
I never thought I would go for shorter qrts but haven't really lost anything.
Biggest rivals just doesn't work for some teams. It isn't fair. Makes sense for the non Vic sides as there is obvious answers, but who do Richmond play? Who do Sr Kilda play? Who do Bulldogs play?

Vic clubs can rotate the double up game. Every team gets a double local derby game.
