AFL football operations manager Steve Hocking thinks that it would make things interesting to see the 50m arc gone from the game.
A larger goal square is one of the many ideas that the competition committee made known to the AFL commission on Thursday.
With the removal of the 50m arc not an idea, Hocking explained how testing this change could be a good thing.
“Having watched football to the level we have, at all levels throughout the year, there is something really strange that happens around that 50m arc,” Hocking tols SEN.
“It would be interesting to have that taken out of the game just to see how it changes player’s behaviour.
“There is no doubt players and coaches utilise those lines on the oval, they use them almost for players to actually guide them as to where they need to be on the ground.”
