And think of a basketball match between a team of 6'6" guys and a team of 5'6" guys of even skill. AFLX will be a bit like an oversized basketball game and I am not sure height won't be a factor.

As I understand it the ball will be kicked in after goal so ruckmen will be superfluous. Height will only be an advantage if a player is extremely mobile.Basically a midfielder's game.

Yeah but midfielders are often around 185cm these days. There would be a lot of aerial one on ones potentially, and with the arm chop crack down that leaves shorter players in difficulty. But I agree it's unlikely to suit the 200cm players either. We'll see. At least the AFL are catching up with the smaller format like the rest of the world has been experimenting with for 10 to 20 years.
