Are robots the AFL’s answer?

For this is the reason the company is looking to replace them with robots.

Maybe it is time that the AFL clubs looked at automating the game, seeing the outrageous salary packages being negotiated by players.

Australia needs to look at innovative ways to boost our manufacturing base – perhaps sports robots could replace the ailing automotive and parts industry.

The savings to sports clubs would be immense after the initial investment.

No fear of players missing a match through injury, misbehaving and bring the club into disrepute by taking banned substances.

As for the coach, all he would need is a good joystick.
