Tom Browne is reporting (so may not actually have been suggested) that the AFL is considering slashing the half time break to just 10 minutes. Thoughts

Call me crazy but I enjoy the longer half time break. It's a good break if you're at the footy, and if you're at home it's handy to get a few things done before the footy starts again.

Got no idea why there's such an obsession with changing all aspects of the game.

Would be happy to see it reduced to 15 minutes. 10 minutes means that if people want to get something at the game during the break you would most likely be missing some of the game.

You would also think the stadiums might be making less revenue which is an interesting decision when the AFL own Marvel

Same time as its reported to be considering challenges to goal umpires decisions - still in awe how much the speed of the game was sped up by allowing kick ins before the goal umpires stopped waving the flags.

I'd love to see it cut, it's ridiculously long when you're watching a game. I've heard that clubs don't like the length either as it's hard keeping the players warmed up for that length of time, not sure about the accuracy of that though.

Actually don't mind this proposal. Am presuming that for the AFL to let it get this far that they've checked with experts in the field and that it won't adversely affect players' health.

Does seem a major change though, but perhaps with the vastly changed way footy is played now 20 min breaks are a relic of a bygone era.
