In the latest edition of AFL Exchange, AFL Football Operations Manager Simon Lethlean joins Matt Thompson and Peter Ryan to discuss:

  • The AFL's instruction to the MRP to take a stronger stance on penalising on-field punches
  • Whether the bounce will remain a part of the game in 2018

  • Potential new fixture models, and how the clubs feel about them

  • Whether the league has any issue with players taking their 30 seconds to dispose of the ball inside-50 before passing off rather than having a shot at goal

  • How much scrutiny any potential long term deals will come under from the AFL, with North Melbourne rumoured to be offering Josh Kelly a nine-year contract
