I understand that footy, and the rules of the game are the last thing on our mind right now, and rightly so.
However, I cannot believe the media’s push for the game to adopt these 16 minute quarters. I was watching AFL360 last night, and to hear Gerard Whateley say that we’ve found a solution to the game’s problems left me gobsmacked.
To me, it reeked of AFLX, with a mix of basketball. More goals does not equal more entertainment, it just doesn’t.
I would be fuming if this was introduced for the 2021 season (if we have one). Stop trying to sell us some “dynamic” version of the game as if we have concentration issues.
I hear people in the media complaining that game is too long. Honestly? You get paid to watch football, and you’re saying there’s too much football?
What’s everyone’s take on this?
