    I think AFL is fast becoming an unhealthy environment for the players

    Recommendations:

    - no clubs allowed to start pre season earlier than 1 December

    - no injections of vitamins/supplements (it's an appalling look for the game to have guys taken off site and injected by non doctors)

    - players allowed to unwind the night after a game (to be clear, the days of the three day bender after a Friday night match are over and should be. But I think having a bottle of wine with your missus, or a six pack around a BBQ should not be frowned on. Players need a release after the massive build up to a game)

    - players given two days off per week

    - a limit, albeit a generous one, on football department expenditure

    - fox footy to shut down in October, and open again in February

    players are allowed to drink following a game. it's going out and getting pissed 24 hours after a game that's the problem.

    Patrick Keane ‏@AFL_PKeane

    AFL will hold a media conference at 12.30pm today at AFL House after further discussions with ACC over the course of this weekend.

    Patrick Keane ‏@AFL_PKeane

    AFL Deputy CEO Gill McLachlan will detail what information can further be provided after last Thursday's ACC media conference in Canberra.


    your club is screwed!

    My understanding is that drinking during the season is frowned upon

    As I say, the days of the big bender are and should be over

    It's all about moderation, and having a release

    That's why there's chaos in the offseason - ten months of deprivation is lived out in a six week window

    I don't want to sound like the male version of Caro Wilson, but things need to change, but not to the other extreme

    Yep because those replayed matches from the 2012 season that aired on Fox Footy from October to February really had a play in damaging the AFL.

    You say the most random stuff sometimes Howard.

    Point being that there is just no off-season

    It's football out of your ears

    You don't have time to savour the Granny, because the next week is the draft combine, followed by the draft proper, then the fixture annoucement, the preseason draft, the rookie draft. All the while the players are back in preseason training
