Interchange changes to reduce congestion

Recommended Posts

To limit the effect of the interchange, each team must rotate a different player to sit on the bench for the whole of each quarter. Having only three interchange players per quarter might limit the overuse and abuse of the interchange. If the effect is not enough, the number on the bench for the quarter can be raised to two. At some point the crowding should ease.

Further, introduce a rule that no player may be interchanged more than once each quarter.

These rule changes should reduce the amount of congestion at packs as players will seek to conserve energy. It's easy to run to every contest if a player knows that a rest is coming.

If these rule changes have the expected effect the afl can stop blighting our great game with the nonsensical alternatives considered by Shocking this week. For once, Bucks is right (written through clenched teeth).

Why do thew want to dig the whole deeper all the time...

 

....... instead of just back peddling and undo the things that got us into this mess.

 

They don't even have to change the number of rotations,,,, at least to start with.  It's really BLOODY simple.

 

Just reduce the interchange to 3 players and 1 sub for 2019...  and then to a 2 man interchange with 2 subs for the 2020 season.

So clean and simple, with no new regulations, laws, interpretations, or any other bloody mess.

 

Are you LISTENING AFL ????????

 

..... stop fu@&ing up the game with more rules,,,,  and just do a little backpedaling.

This is the sort of thing that leads me to think they throw out the really wacky stuff so you'll pleased when it's 'only' moderate changes in the end.

I have been thinking about congestion, the look of the game, the speed of the game and scoring. I believe I have come up with changes to Aussie rules which will make everyone happy and take the game into the third millennium. 

I have to play golf now but I will let youse know tonight. I think you'll like them. 

Go dees !!!

Every rule change over a 20 year period was designed to speed up the game. Interchange is the one that allows players to run all day. 

Keep reducing it. Don't listen to the coaches as they have never been interested in the look of the game.

Less interchange and you will have less congestion. personally I'd be happy with 10 per quarter. 

And get rid of the other non-playing people on the ground clogging up space. Runners - gone. Yesterdays relic and entirely unecessary. Water carriers - only allowed on field after a goal.

Problem solved.

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne atoned for the heartbreak of its frustrating finish to the 2017 season by, at long last, making the finals and then disposed of two highly credentialed and experienced teams in Geelong and Hawthorn before it capitulated meekly to eventual premier West Coast in the Preliminary Final in Perth. The club’s progression has been forward and upward since it finished 2013 with two wins and appointed Paul Roos as coach. The number has increased to four, seven, 10, 12, and now 14 games. The
