And if you want to thrash Melbourne, you just need a 19 year old with dash.

AFL has a problem when only halfway though the season there were 157 players on the injury list and that's nearly half a playing team each on average. They're burning players up running them like olympic athletes with the added risk of collision injury and it's showing. Lose a few key players and/or run them with a jab and shuffle the team around and we don't know what we're getting week to week. AFL is now a marathon of attrition to see who can roll up in September with a reasonably full hand.

There's talk about about shortening quarters as a response to the obvious trend but the alternative is to go back to the old way of rotating onballers back to the pockets rather than roll on roll off the bench. That definitely slows the game with more one on one contests.
There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.

I reckon if he is having issues watching normal games/tackles and having to turn the game off, he wont ever be the same...
