And oh boy was it intriguing! Leading questions everywhere! Didn’t get asked about the frequency of rule changes. Didn’t get asked about rule interpretation either. Sliding rule? Nah. Score Review System? What is that?
Did get asked if I thought it was important the ball remain the same shape. And if it was important the game be played on an oval shaped ground. And if I thought being allowed to kick the ball in any direction was important (No more backwards or sidewards movement! GOALS NOW WORTH 100 POINTS! LASERS FIRING AT ALL TIMES! DROWN IN THE ORGY OF COLOURS AND BIG NUMBERS!). Asked me in approximately seven different ways if I thought player safety was important. Wanted to respond with “No. Give me more gore”, but that wasn’t an option.
I would have given suggestions like “game isn’t completed until the Golden Snitch is caught”, “MULTIBALL!” and “Make all players wear a bomb that detonates if they stop moving during play”, but I fear there is possibility they could implement them.
Still, credit where it is due. At least the AFL gave this opportunity to the fans, as opposed to just running around, hands covering ears, screaming “NOT LISTENING!”
