Could this be the start of the end for some clubs.... "Hawthorn president Jeff Kennett has joined Swans chairman Andrew Pridham in calling for an independent review into the AFL's entire operations..... Kennett said the review should look into all aspects of the league, including the number of teams, which is presently 18....... The pandemic has ushered in a period of significant upheaval for the AFL. Clubs and the league have been forced to cut large numbers of staff, while a re-negotiated pay deal with the players remains in limbo. The vast majority of club members did not request a refund – a financial lifeline for the AFL – however fears remain over what will happen with memberships next year as Victoria and the country battle through a recession. There is also no clarity on whether crowds will be allowed back at Victorian games next season, given the unpredictability of the pandemic in the state." https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/hawthorn-sydney-presidents-call-for-independent-review-into-afl-20201015-p565em.html
