AFL- Stop Messing With Our Great Game sign now

The AFL rules committee and the people running the competition have effectively ruined OUR great game. Every year players and fans alike are left bewildered by the new rule changes that are in effect and the different interpretations of these rules. In a bid to make the game more "TV-friendly" and ensure greater profits, Andrew Demetriou, Adrian Anderson and everyone else running the AFL have begun to neglect what the game is all about and what has made it the national sport of our great country. They say they are trying to make the game more viewable for the general public. Were we ever consulted?? Can anyone who has watched football from the 70's, 80's or 90's truly say that the new rules make the game more entertaining, compelling or interesting?? Remember the "I'd like to see that!" ad's?? That was what AFL was about, you wouldn't see the majoriy of these highlights anymore. The biff, the contact which combined with speed, agility and ball skills that made AFL unique and exciting is slowly being outlawed.

This petition will almost certainly amount to nothing as the AFL would not take heed of anything we say even if the entire Australian population signed it! But anyone fed up with the AFL's and in particular Andrew Demetriou's continual attempts to sacrifice over 100 years of tradition and alter the rules to make more money and turn our great game into a hybrid of basketball, netball and Gaelic football with an oval shaped ball (changing to a round ball may not be out of the question with the current administration!) please take a moment to sign this petition. Lets show these people that they cannot ruin our game and get away with it!

    Formula 1 did an online questionaire to find out what the fans wanted. AFL, do likewise

    The AFL may believe that changing the game will attract more viewers while the die-hards will continue to watch despite concerns, but this only goes so far. The point at which they switch off is not too far away and theyre the ones that are relied on for
