The AFL has just released a statement
"Due to Richmond's dominance over the last 3 years, we have come to the conclusion, all Richmond home games will be played at Kardinia Park and 6 players will have one of their arms strapped to their body"

The home of Dusty
The problem with a reduced list size is that it demands first year players to be ready to play some games
That's another reason I don't see the list going to 35.

Assuming a minimum of two draftees, we would effectively have 6 first year players on our list given the guys drafted in 2019 are not likely to play much real footy this year.

That leaves 29 players so when the inevitable injures come you are going to be playing those guys and not on the taster plate basis you would ideally use a rookie.

Not only will we break them, you won't see many ruckman drafted until they are 23 by which time plenty will be lost to basketball and fast bowling.

Brian Cook pulling the same string as Doofus.
'Its all important we play all home games at home"
Bloobo the hut "Essendon haven't played down there since the 60's" clueless...
Brereton "thats fine Cooky but you need to play at the MCG too" :D
Cook fell off his seat
