    Really? I was pretty sure the original articles suggested it was being considered to improve the television product. If the narrative is being changed to suggest it's player lead, then that's some really dynamic work from all involved who realised fans not being considered was a terrible message compared to player welfare.

    Chill out and relax, footy is an escape for most of us, what's the hurry?
    While I tend to agree, it's very interesting to me that it's clearly an issue for some on here. If you accept that the trend is your friend then there is a real chance this will gain momentum over time and I'd like to gain an understanding of what the challenges are for people. Will we eventually see 15 minute quarters and just a 10 minute break at half time?

    I'm sure Dangerfield was asked about it and thought it would help players and clubs manage/prevent injuries

    I'll have another look

    Re: The half time break

    When i first heard this i had to look up and check the calendar..nope it's November not April.
    Agree with many of the reasons previously mentioned to keep the status quo. But even if you don't leave your spot at half time, can you imagine how annoying it's going to be for the first 10 minutes of the third qtr as people are trying to get past you back to their spot?
    So they make this change and I can't wait for their suggestions to help us mere little supporters to adjust:

    'In order to alleviate toilet queue's, the AFL would encourage you to share a urinal with a fellow supporter;
    'All smokers can go to a special room to fill their lungs with s*** while watching 'Quit' and 'Life be in it' ads;

    Me? I just want the full 20 minutes so i can continue my quest to find that f***wit who bangs on over the P.A.

    GVG I recently saw an ad for a house with 4 bedrooms & 6 bathrooms. How about a match where we have 5 minute quarters and 7 minute breaks?

    Kennett attacks AFL proposal to slash half-time break in half



    The Age has confirmed the AFL has raised the prospect of cutting the half-time break from 20 minutes to 10 minutes in 2020, as a means of shortening the game, at a meeting with club chief executives before the first round of the AFL draft on Wednesday.
    Premierships: AFL 1954, 2016 VFA - 1898,99,1900, 1908, 1913, 1919-20, 1923-24, VFL: 2014, 2016 . Champions of Victoria 1924. AFLW - 2018.

    It's the AFL once more tinkering with the game just because they want to leave a legacy. Personally, I think Hocking should be sacked with all the stupid ideas he has come up with.

    Re: The half time break

    I'd be interested to see how much time-on on average in a quarter is expended after goals.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the clock once continue running after a goal?

    Listen Sharon. Are you listening to me Sharon? It was more the mansplaining than anything else.

    I know when boomers finished-I'm in the last year before it went to the next thing-baby boomers were the generation from 1945-1964 and I was born in March 1964.
