Mick Warner says journalists should not be consulted on the look of the game.
The AFL is putting together a committee to address the spectacle of the game, including past players and veteran journalists.
But the Herald Sun writer told 3AW Football journos should be “independent observers”.
“They have no part in formulation of policy,” Mick said.
“As much as people think they’re part of the game, we’re not.
“I think we’re all too cosy in this industry, sometimes.”
“I think we’re all too cosy in this industry, sometimes. Last time I checked, journalists were supposed to be independent observers. They have no part in the formulation of policy.”
