FOUR AFL umpires will spend the next 14 days self-isolating in South Australia in order to umpire the round two Showdown.

But is it the biggest sacrifice made in AFL history?

From amputated fingers to selfless selection calls, the AFL Exchange team discuss some unselfish acts over the years.

The crew also chat about the obscure sounds that could be used in broadcasts this season, the breakout players expected for 2020, how clubs can be innovative to support members without crowds and debate the Monsters of speed in an exciting new topic in this week's show.

Join the boys Mitch Cleary, Riley Beveridge and Cal Twomey as they look at footy's hottest topics – and some of the not-so-big – in the new episode of the AFL Exchange podcast.
