General Discussions

I wanted to comment on something and found no thread that was suitable and thought perhaps we need a thread for general, random discussion... ones that cannot and do not fit under any other heading/thread.

Just wanted to say how much I was enjoying the Zac D and Ross L discussions on the AFL website. Really good value and deeply authentic communications between the two. Insightful.

He's a good man Ross Lyon, often misjudged I reckon. Is young Zac still with the Blues?

I hope this is worthy of this thread, but I have a question. What do people think is the next "style" of football going to look like? We went from the man on man in a position to things like Terry's Flood, Pagan's Paddock, Clarko's Cluster to now morphing into, in my view, glorified circle work. So whats next? Will it go back full circle? Will they drop 2 and go to 16 on the ground? Or is the Big M Little League style of 36 players chasing the agot here to stay?
Thoughts?

After the recent success trialling 16 on the ground in other comps, I suspect 16 a side in inevitable. It was fine for VFA, it'll be fine for AFL.

My only question is, will that mean on 20 a side on match day, or will they increase the bench to 6? I suspect they'll increase the bench to 6, but two of the six will be substitutes not interchange. If that happens I think you'll find a shift in the selection mix.

I'd much rather see 16 a side, than some of the other more radical things they are unofficially fiddling with at the moment. Like the holding the ball rubbish.

Baggers you could start a thread on a topic if a suitable one doesn't already exist?
Everyone has heard of Karl Marx but not many know of his sister Onya, who invented the starting pistol.

But I like the idea of a thread where you can talk about anything and stray off topic without fear of persecution. :D  ;)

16 a side BUT in such a fast paced game, it will place an immense strain on CHFs and CHBs alone.  Good thing?  Bad thing?  Got no idea.

Wouldn't the logical conclusion of that be that there would be only one thread on this site? Referencing any particular issue and following the debate would be much more difficult if not impossible ? 🤯

While I don't mind a "whatever comes into your mind" type of thread as Cookie said the problem will be following a topic.

I was going to use the thread to mention that I think Nick Riewoldt is quickly becoming my favourite footy media guy. It sort of led on from Baggers initial post.
But already we've moved on to a different discussion regarding the future of the game.
Now I reckon both these topics  "Media and Future of the game" are worthy of their own thread and make following that discussion easier.
Not only that, it gives a greater opportunity to get into a topic in depth.

The question is ...What do we use a General Discussion thread for....I've seen them work quite well on other sites?

I reckon that if there isn't a thread already and one became apparent in this thread then it'd probably get a life of its own and subsequently its own thread. I guess this is a kind of experiment, a place for random thoughts or observations or comments that don't have an obvious home elsewhere.

"What I did on the Holidays"
Basically just everyday thoughts. Random observations. "Has anyone else noticed....."
Things that wouldn't necessarily command a thread that would go for more than a page or two.
