“It was a chat to talk about the game and to talk about where it’s at and ideas and philosophies,” McLachlan said in Melbourne yesterday.
McLachlan, appointed AFL chief executive in late April, wants to repeat the informal dinner, which was praised by Geelong’s premiership coach Chris Scott.
“It was a little bit about the state of the game and the way it’s played,” Scott said in Geelong yesterday.
“And there were some really good suggestions thrown up as to how maybe we can improve the way the game looks aesthetically.”
Scott said contrary to perception, AFL coaches cared about the look of the game.
