Official AFL is the biggest steaming pile of horseshit game ever created thread
sounds like something Vince McMahon would come up with.
so anyway, ummm....
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.
