Chris Scott Neil Balme urge against further cuts

Senior football figures Chris Scott and Neil Balme have cautioned against dramatic cuts to the AFL in the wake of the coronavirus-enforced shutdown of the competition.

Job losses have already been felt across the industry, with 80 per cent of staff at league headquarters and clubs stood down following the season’s postponement in March.

Further cuts and changes are looming as the AFL attempts to battle through arguably the biggest financial crisis in competition history.

Balme, Richmond’s football boss, is concerned by what the COVID-19 pandemic meant for the game’s future.
