OPINION: Time to scrap the cap

What a year 2020 has been for Australian football; COVID caused a major disruption to the closing stages of the season, the financial viability of the league has been hurt due to the FFA losing multiple commercial partnerships, and Fox Sports has given a clear indication of its indifference to football when it held the league to ransom during broadcast deal renegotiations.


Whilst these have been the unavoidable negatives, there have also been some standout positives too with Australia and New Zealand winning hosting rights for the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup and Melbourne City securing the bridesmaid's treble.
