What are people thinking about this AFLX stuff?
Players seem to like the change up in pre season focus towards speed and skills rather than volume. Seems like a good chance to expose some kids while easing the vets into game stuff. Other than that, I don’t think it will capture the hearts and minds of footy fans…my guess is, the AFL want to use it as an entry point for sports fans from non-AFL backgrounds to get into the sport both as a participant and as a spectator. Nothing wrong with that as a strategy.
