Nah, they'll love it. Sell at the same price but not need to dress up the retail point. Slash costs. Instead of 30 or 40 chip fryers across the stadium, they'll just have one massive automated fryer under the centre square pushing out hot chips to distribution points all over the ground.The licensed vendors will be waiting at the doors with baseball bats
I'm against too, we shouldn't be trying to be like other games, our game is our game. I like a break at half time. I'd also like there to be less of the crap on the scoreboard and through the PA at half time, let us be for a moment, we don't need to be entertained during half time breaks, the footy is the only entertainment we came to see.Auskick before the game is their proposal.
I imagine venues would get annoyed as food sales etc will decrease. I know I've skipped a drink if the queue is too long and I'm going to miss the action. Let alone needing time to dispose of that which went into the system earlier.
Your spot on.Spoke to Jeff Kennett last night.
Very very vocal against this crap.
Said ( we agreed ) that the AFL will in time shorten the quarters as well. Its his fear.
Just leave our game alone.
Its unique to Australia.
Why do we have to copy other codes or Americanised our sport so much.

If you haven't already, have a read up on dark kitchens and ghost restaurants. Your delivery restaurant meal most likely isn't coming from the restaurant itself.
I think most of that is on the home club.As for the food venues, like most food venues, they need to actually employ enough staff to serve the number of customers they know they will get. The queues are too long because they don't have enough staff. In any case the food venues have little power.
Yep. Massive overdose of games being broadcast, topped up with half the games being non competitive floggings or boring as bat **** non scoring wrestling matches n the thirty second attention span generation disappears into the ether.From what I understand the shortening of the break has nothing to do with the game as the AFL claims but everything to do with the fact that apparently stats are showing that many TV viewers stop watching at half time and don't return. Still we shoud be a club that benefits from the shorter break.
