PATRICK Dangerfield doesn't have any time for critics of AFLX.

"They were the same sceptics last year that complained that the best players weren't playing," Dangerfield told reporters at Geelong on Friday.

"They're the same ones that are now saying, 'Oh, this is a terrible format'. They'll always complain about something. You just can't buy into it."

The new format sees eight players on a rectangular field, with games consisting of two 10-minute halves.

There will be four teams, with Dangerfield captaining the Bolts, Fremantle superstar Nat Fyfe leading the Flyers, Richmond spearhead Jack Riewoldt the skipper of the Rampage, and Adelaide maestro Eddie Betts in charge of an all-indigenous line-up called the Deadlys.

They will draft players on to their teams before the matches take place in a one-day event on Friday, February 22.

The innovation has been criticised by some who fail see the point of it.

"Whenever you're initially trying something new, there's always going to be scepticism around it," Dangerfield said.

There's always going to be a few different things that you need to tinker with, but I think the concept itself is really promising

"It's faster, it's that shorter format.

"I think it engages kids probably a little bit better than what we do with AFL games because they go for so long.

"Combining that with the fact it's in summer, it's a little bit warmer. I think it will be well received."

"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.

Another guest appearance from the great beatup!!!! Good work pal. And once again it's defend, defend, defend the great god fumble at all costs.

In this case it's actually hard core fumble fans, commentators and ex-players who have lambasted, laughed at and derided this freak show. It doesn't need any help from anyone else. This laughing stock idiocy will be played for one day this year and will never be heard of again.

Perhaps going forward you could learn to read what’s actually posted and be informed before you hit the reply button you imbecile.

Considering it’s all just a kick and giggles pre season filler concept, it’s funny to see how obsessed RL fans seem to be. Perhaps they fear if the concept ever did take off, their regularly half empty rectangular NRL stadiums would be at risk of being taken over by the AFL. :lol:

Gees, imagine the total meltdown from leaguies if this concept proved successful. 😂
''Open-minded' Fyfe admits to nerves about AFLX debut
Travis King
Jan 21, 2019 4:23PM

SUPERSTAR Nat Fyfe admits to "some nervousness" being involved in a restyled AFLX, but says the opportunity to play alongside the League's elite was too good to pass up.

Fyfe conceded the four AFLX captains – including Patrick Dangerfield, Eddie Betts and Jack Riewoldt – were putting their reputations at risk by fronting the new format, which will be unveiled at Marvel Stadium on February 22.

The Fremantle skipper understands the skepticism but believed the concept – featuring eight players per side on a rectangular field – had potential and could develop into a franchise-style tournament played overseas.

"I couldn't really see anything wrong with getting involved," Fyfe said.

"I didn't get to do AFLX last year. I'm keen to have a go at the concept.

"I've got some nervousness around it like everyone else does, but I think we would be missing an opportunity if we didn't try to venture into new avenues in our game.

"Maybe this format will suit me, maybe it won't. I'm really open-minded about it and keen to give it a go.

"If I try, it sucks, I'll write it off, but I'm open-minded at this stage."

Fyfe was partly sold by the chance to select his own team, nicknamed the 'Flyers', from the cream of the AFL crop.

He nominated the likes of Marcus Bontempelli, Patrick Cripps, Scott Pendlebury, Kade Simpson, Joel Selwood and Elliot Yeo as potential targets in the draft early next month.

But his chances of playing alongside fellow Brownlow medallist Dustin Martin appear slim.

"I bumped into Dusty in Costa Rica in the off-season actually and asked him if he was getting involved, and he was a little bit skeptical at that stage, so hopefully we can get him over the line and playing," Fyfe said.

Some have questioned why State of Origin can't be revived if players, who will be paid for their involvement, can put their hands up for AFLX.

Fyfe, a "fence-sitter" about State of Origin, believed the risk of injury was significantly lower in the new format.

"I think State of Origin died a natural death because the best players weren't playing because it was a full-length game, there was that standard injury risk," he said.

"The idea with AFLX, I think players are going to only be playing about 30 minutes of footy in this concept.

"There won't be a lot of contact. I won't be telling my team to be tackling, going back with the flight of the ball, or even doing those really hard, long chase-outs.

"It's more about skill, it's about structure, it's about the high marks, the freakish goals – the stuff you wouldn't see at a stock-standard, regular-season AFL game.

"The smaller numbers opens the door, potentially, to start the discussion around the State of Origin footy again at some stage."

Fyfe revealed his charity for AFLX was the Royal Flying Doctor Service, with the winning team set to donate $30,000 to a selected cause. The runner-up will donate $10,000 with the remaining two teams distributing $5000 each to their preferred charities.
