AFL officials have made the popular decision to scrap the highly-scrutinised playing of music after goals, with "hundreds of complaints" filed since the initiative began.

With many football fans opposed to the playing of music after majors, such a decision would result in the absence of in-game tunes this Saturday afternoon at the MCG during the 2022 AFL Grand Final.

SEN's Sam Edmund reported the development on Tuesday, Tweeting: "Hearing the AFL will ditch the music after goals on Grand Final day, but this is unconfirmed. The MCG has received hundreds of complaints."

Edmund added: "The league has been keen on the tunes during finals, but the MCC approached them after the Cats-Lions prelim to argue for the mute button."

Edmund's reports have since been confirmed.

The AFL Fans Association recently conducted a Twitter poll asking football fans if they were for or against the playing of music after a team kicked a goal; the results were categorical, with a whopping 90.8% of the 947 voters expressing their opposition to the league's initiative.
