AFL in 2015

Written by Motts on April 16 2015

I think we can all agree that last year was a disaster for the AFL. Terrible scheduling led to poor turnouts, fans held to ransom inside stadiums for food &ย drink, and of course there was that minor drugs issue at Windy Hill.

Gillon McLachlan has taken the helm and made a ton of changes to attempt to improve the fan experience.

I know we’re only 2 rounds in but how do you think he’s going? Is footyย better, the same or worse this year?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

What would you do to improve it even further?

  1. Sub rule has got to go. Not just from SC POV…….it’s just a useless rule. Either play with 21 or 22, simple. Cannot stand constant rule changes to an already great game……

  2. Really like that clubs are being encouraged to make their home game a unique experience. In a league where nine Melbourne teams share home games across two venues it’s really important to get this differentiation between what an Essendon home game feels like, what a North Melbourne home game feel like etc… It was North’s first home game for the season last Sunday and they considerably ramped up the experience. The LED signage with lots of North related messages, particularly pre-game, lots of music to set the scene, updated pre-game theme song written by Tim Rogers (was pretty good actually), new banner that hangs from a giant inflatable hanging above the ground with the North logo on it (no more crepe banners for North at home games). I like that if North plays the Doggies ‘away’ at the same ground we won’t have any of that and it’ll be Doggies stuff everywhere.

    And obviously the cheaper food is a biggie too. I didn’t have one myself but i heard a lot of people discussing the $3 Sunday pies. Persoanlly, i loved the relaxed food rules. I bought same Nandos and walked them into the ground. Love it!!

    Good work Gill. Keep it up.

  3. In this current age of “continual improvement”, the key word is improvement.

    Many of Demetrio’s changes were not improvements, just ‘changes’. And when they were seen as such (or even regression) I think he was too arrogant to admit it. (e.g. sub rule, twighlight footy, Sunday/Monday night games).

    I personally think we should leave what ain’t broke. (How many rule changes have they had in soccer, tennis or even golf?) If it needs changing then do it but otherwise why make changes for the sake of looking like you’re doing something?

  4. I like all the new electronic ‘signage’ around the G and Etihad but really hope they use it to show stats of the player who may have just kicked a goal or stats of someone who is running hot, I think they’re pretty useless just showing the team name etc

    That was what I noticed at the two doggies games anyway.
