Scientific Football Testing

Today the AFL announced their plan to scientifically test footballs across different levels of the game. They apparently want to know all there is to know about that magically erratic little oval; the best materials to use in construction and maybe even the feasibility of putting GPS tracking systems inside to help with controversial goal line decision-making. As a Collingwood fan I have to say I have a fondness for the unknowability to a bouncing football – think back to that drawn grandfinal and the obviously Pies-supporting Sherrin that evaded Stephen Milne’s clutches.

Nonetheless, the idea of forensic football analysis got me thinking about the lengths the AFL might go to in seeking to unravel the mysteries of the ball. Thus, a cartoon was born. Enjoy.
