Stinks of AFL meeting the supporters half-way of State of Origin if you ask me. If we are suddenly OK with risking player injury, then that can't be used as excuse for not having State of Origin IMO.

I think a lot of people are just using this as another excuse to have a whinge.

Sure it's gonna have some pretty obvious flaws and it's not gonna be like the AFL we know and love but as far as I'm concerned, footy is footy.

Plus I believe they intend to hold it in that week off between Round 23 and finals? Heard many people say that break is shower with no footy, so here's the solution. A watered down, glorified state of origin.

Might be ok to watch but will only be played by VFL type players I think can't see clubs risking there guns for a bit of hit and giggle footy

Will have to wait and see in action. Think there are a lot of risks involved but could be sorted out with a few extra restrictions.

Smaller Oval with only 14 players on the field. Think for safety need to restrict the number in areas of the ground.  As shaker has said will clubs risk players for this or will it be mostly 2nd Tier comp players.

It is still footy on a bye weekend.

I think there's a lot of unnecessary hate going on here. Yeah, it's not AFL, but it's a supplementary competition not a replacement and tbh, it'd probably be pretty fun/ enjoyable to watch.

this is a good point. While i hate the idea as i dont think it will be fun to watch and its a chance of injuring the players for no gain. It would make much more sense if they just played AFL 9s.
