ALMOST two-thirds of footy fans want to see the sub rule scrapped, while more than half say the Northern Territory is the top option if the AFL was to introduce a 20th team.

They are some of the findings of AFL.com.au's Footy Fan Survey, with 64 per cent of the more than 33,000 respondents voting for the sub role to be removed in some form.

While 36 per cent of fans want to keep the sub, 47 per cent want teams to have five players on the bench with no sub, while an additional 17 per cent want four on the bench with no sub.

Two-thirds of fans are against the introduction of extra time for drawn home and away games, with 67 per cent in favour of the status quo.

The majority of supporters are also opposed to a send-off rule (58 per cent against) while fans are also clear that they like the current length of games (89 per cent) and almost three quarters of respondents say the introduction of the score review has improved the game.

Opinion was split when asked if footy is better to watch than a decade ago, with 40 per cent saying no, 38 per cent saying yes and 22 per cent saying it's the same.

If the AFL was to introduce a 20th AFL/AFLW team after Tasmania enters the competition, 53 per cent of fans say the new club should be based in the Northern Territory. Eighteen per cent of respondents say the competition does not need a 20th team.
