Get ready for AFL X everyone!

AFL secretly trials new version of football
The AFL has been quietly developing a modified form of Australian Rules that is played on a soccer field, which it trialled in a secret match between two VFL teams last weekend.

With the working name AFL X, the new version of the game allows just seven players from each team on the ground, far fewer than the usual 18-a-side, and is as part of a broader plan to become a year-round sport

AFL boss Gillon McLachlan, speaking after the Hawks Young Executive Wing grand final breakfast, said the concept had come from a brainstorming session with his staff.

He said the idea behind AFL X had been to attract non-football fans to the game and enable it to be taken to venues where football could not normally be played because they did not have an oval.

"It was an idea that came up, to develop a new product, that was able to work in different venues and look different, in a shorter and different format" he told Fairfax Media.

Most games have a smaller variant... makes sense, especially if they want to make it a world wide sport.
Easier to get teams of 10 (7 on field and 3 bench?)

It can be the 20/20 of AFL... need shorter quarters and away it goes...
Can play throughout the week and just have after work games.

Tonights the night, ordering a pizza, setting up Paw Patrol on the iPad for my daughter and decking out lounge room in red white and blue.

Don't they already have AFL 9's? I heard about AFL 7's a couple months ago too.... very interesting in multiple ways of the meaning.

What a spiteful game this is turning out to be. Kind of wish we still had Barry Hall in the side to deck Stevie J

2 weeks downgraded to 1 with a guilty plea. Could've easily been 3 down to 2 if the swans gave a scathing medical report.

Feel a little sad that the Hawks were eliminated, which is surprising because normally I hope they lose every week.

It's great that at least one of the Dogs and Giants will be in the GF.

GO THE DOGGIES!!!
I can't feel sad for the Hawks, and would put the Dogs in my top e teams... so happy with this result.

Really unsure who I want tomorrow though...

Hope the injury to Rohan isn't serious. Sydney will be at a big disadvantage next week without him.

^ I don't think it will make any difference, the swans don't have the midfield to beat the cats especially at the mcg and the dogs are on a roll and will crush gws

and nice to be on the same page as disruptor for a change, great footy last weekend and more incoming :D
