SESSION INFO: It's the question that no Melbournian dare ask. Someone has to though. At risk at being arrested for treason - Is there such a thing as too much footy? AFL footy has become a 365-day a year affair, where Grand Final day rolls into the trade periods and draft week. Then it's on to the summer season of AFLW, the threat of something called AFLX (which sounds like a biological warfare agent that should be banned) and endless replays of The Tigers Grand Final triumph and Bruce pawing Dustin Martin like Dr Evil with his cat.
How far away are we from 24/7/365 roaming Brian? (First he came for the footy players and I said nothing. Then he came for me...) You know they would if they could... Our esteemed panel of writers and footy nuffies will ponder - can there be too much of a good thing? We will settle the argument and start a few new ones as we debate just how much footy is enough!
