Walker Kicks for Goal

Adelaide forward Taylor "Tex" Walker was interviewed on a Triple M radio morning show and came up with an idea to help spread the game and give sports fans something to watch with other competitions canceled or postponed.

He said the AFL should stream games directly to the United States, saying it could "... open a new market of AFL fans." He understands the AFL wanting to shorten games and possibly have games played on non-traditional days during the week "... trying to cram games in before a case occurs... " and added, “Put on a show for people sitting at home wanting to watch something.”

(Ed. note: apparently Mr. Walker is unaware that they already do so via WatchAFL.)

He is keen to play but realizes that a player who contracted the virus could spread it very quickly, “We are so close to each other ... the weights room, the lockers ... one person gets it, four or five others already have it and ... you just shut the joint down.”
