I think stats geeks like myself might think that was pretty cool but the football development side of me would be saying how will this advance the footy in my country- what are the benefits against the costs in terms of money/time/key personnel burn out?????

I also know from experience that any AFL money/time has traditionally been heavily weighted to junior development/sourcing of elite juniors from other sports.

 That said I think it should happen but I am no longer at the coalface and I would certainly not want to see anything drop off in terms of junior development, talented player pathways(those on scholarships in Aus, those involved at Aus Championships, those making their own way in Aussie) etc

I'm sure the WFN staff who have been working their butts off over the last two weeks will be thinking "Oh no....."
