Do we live in an age where by the game of Aussie Rules especially on a national level is becoming too controlled and predictable? Judging by the weekend's results perhaps not but when you look at salary capping, priority draft picks and an ever changing rule system. Compare AFL to the English Premier League (obvious differences aside) - the premier league is: part of an international code, unlimited salaries, perhaps no draft system. What you end up with there however is the richer clubs get strong and the poorer clubs get relegated? Could AFL survive with a relegation system, an opening of the state based leagues to a national level, a system where you could see Sturt play an NT team?
