Apparently, the emphasis is going to be on high-scoring, which is great. I've always thought AFL was a fantastic sport, marred only by the fact that not enough goals are kicked. Thanks, AFL authorities!

AFLX looks to be AFL's strategy to choke the HAL.

You'd think their hope is that this thing will take off and become a full blown summer comp which not only diverts fans and sponsorship away from the HAL but also clogs up availability of stadiums for HAL fixtures, as AFLX would be played on rectangular grounds.

It's not really. It's their attempt to try and get it played in countries where there are no oval grounds. If nothing else, AFL is a pretty physically demanding game, so getting their players to spend any significant off-season time playing it would be unrealistic.

It just seemed like a way to use HAL stadiums during their off season to me.

I hope it loses them a spectacular amount of money.

The AFL is having their normal "We're a world game, honest" match in China this weekend. As normal the Government is jumping all into it as some major cultural event.

This thread should be regularly bumped. Bravo to Bianconero for starting this thread!

Global sport? Can't even get a decent crowd in Western Sydney or Queensland.
