10 burning questions for McLachlan

The 10 key issues new AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan must address:

1. Strengthen the AFL’s relationship with the paying public

There is growing frustration over the rise in the cost of tickets (and the variable ticket pricing), food and drink.

2. Female representation

It’s time for the AFL to have more women executives.

3. Help the weaker clubs

Improved equalisation measures are a must to help the financially struggling and poorer-supported clubs.

4. What to do with Tasmania

McLachlan wants one team only in Tasmania. Could a semi-relocation be on the cards?

5. Fallout from Essendon

It remains to be seen if infraction notices are handed out. If so, this will be a huge early test for him.

6. A night grand final

Television executives want it to boost ratings. Will McLachlan budge?

7. Good Friday football

Debate rages but it’s time for the AFL to move with the times.

8. Grass roots

The AFL must keep a vigilant eye on struggling country and suburban clubs.

9. Player pay

The players want an increase in the average wage of more than $250,000 – but can the game afford it?

10. New Zealand

McLachlan says expansion into NZ with St Kilda is a priority but is this really going to work?
