    Sounds like a Magic idea

    I know that the league wouldn't do this while it guttered an established club though.
    That would be MACshocking.

    Or cannibalising a RAMshackle local Under 18s squad.

    If a Prems club cant raise 22 players to play 19's every week, they shouldn't be in Prems.
    I can understand if the Div 2 teams go to 16 a side plus bench (the bench should allow 6 players, so as not to penalise those clubs that can get full numbers).

    With regard to 17y/o playing 19's a couple, of points:
    The academy pushes the 17 y/o to play 19's
    There are some kids just love playing footy and love playing 19's on Sat and 17's on sunday.
    It helps as a bit if a recruitment tool to get a couple of 17's playing the odd game in 19's, gives them a taste.
    When the fielding of a 19's team depends week in week out on playing 6-7 x 17's, then that is not good for either team.

    It always amazes me that one of the "heartland" AFL areas of Sydney, the Eastern Suburbs, can only produce a single Under 19's team
