No eBay APP ID défined in Kunena configurationI am more than likely rattling the cage here with this topic, but here goes.
How many here will be watching the AFLs new experiment ,AFLX?
Not sure just what to expect from it, but I will be watching to see just what it entails.
Also many of the clubs will be giving their new recruits a chance to show us what they have. From that perspective it will be good.
Fremantle have included quite a few of their new recruits, but one I will be watching with interest is Mitch Crowden.I have heard good reports about him since he has arrived at Fremantle.
Just remembered "Rattle the Cage" a blast from the past.Any one remember!!!!

If it is being shown on Australia+ TV, I will certainly take a peek - just as I have done with the AFLW.

I wouldn't want to be seen as stuffy, and hidebound in the past. :)

I'll have a look because I want to see the nkotb and what they have to offer. Who knows, I was sceptical of the 20/20 cricket, but now I love it.

First impression - Handbaggers vs Mudholians was fast and unconventional.

Wobblers vs Crows - slower and more like the real thing (which is not a positive).

All players are saying they are buggered, with no time to recover.

6/10 thus far.

I thought it was pretty good. Seems opinions are divded on it. I think if you compare it to regular footy then you may not like it, but if you think of it as a completely different form of footy it was ok. I think it will take on long term.

I watched about half of it and it was enjoyable to watch, not many stoppages and the skilful players really stood out becuase of a lack in tagging tactics. Almost a basketball type set up.

I enjoyed it for what it was, a hit out for the boys other than the training.It was a set up just like training drills.But the good thing about it is that as one player said, it helps blow the tubes pout and helps ger rid of the rust.
Certainly not a big mans games.The smaller quicker and skillful players would love it.
Maybe able to try it over seas on the smaller grounds.
They were also talking about it being played similar to BBL.Having franchises.

Good luck trying to set up franchises, maybe the lesser known state based players can be involved but afl clubs won’t let players go just like origin. AFL clubs stopped origin footy not sure they will want to release their top end players to something else that could potential loose them for the season.

Looks like a dud spectator product for the traditional footy fan but it’s great fun to play and the kids love playing it. Easy to set up at grassroots level and could attract people who have not played before and might be a good competitor with soccer.
Hopefully the AFL see its value in game development and grassroots football and therefore put funding back into grassroots rather than into chasing TV ratings.
