Good concept & well done to the SANFL for following it through.

The idea was first promoted by John Kantilaftas when he was CEO at West & he then approached the Eagles to participate.

Part of me questions why we need to come up with a 'Twenty20' version of our game when our game already lasts a comparable timeframe to a T20 match. Having said that, we've seen Rugby 7's work well for rugby so why not give this a go.

I also think the Fast Footy is a much better concept than AFLX as Fast Footy is still played on an oval.

I assume all 8 SANFL teams will be involved in this.

overall a very good concept, however two things immediately comes to mind & this one worries me a bit & that is what the hardness of the ground are like that they use as any ground at that time of the year are generally rock hard................................perhaps they can do what they do in hockey, that being they water the pitch....the second one is it reminds me of the old lightning carnival days i'm sure most of us were involved in, at school footy

It's only being played at The Parade and with no baseball there this summer, it's looking a lush, picture perfect (soft under foot) playing arena.

That’s now what about then ? Could be rock hard, as I said great concept but perhaps too early or do they do what they do in hockey pre game?

They played a lot of women's footy at The Parade around the same time last year, so the ground will be fine.

Ok, only making a point & without proper watering it could be too hard, that is the point I was trying to make....im sure if a couple of players from Central went down with long term injuries would you be saying the same ???

Personally I hope every player from every club gets through unscathed

Of course, but I don't think there will be a problem, at all.

Plus, it has proper watering and no doubt they will be conscious of all this and ensure it is pristine.

It will also be the home of the Crows AFLW team for next season.

No problem in that case as the afl will pour (pun intended) enough money to have it spot on
