The AFL has shut down the competition until at least May 31.

But how likely are we to see footy played again so soon – or at all again this year?

This week on the Real Footy podcast, Michael Gleeson and Jake Niall discuss the AFL's decision to bring things to a halt.

What are the financial implications? How much will the league need to borrow? What cuts will have to be made at clubs?

How will players be allowed to train, and what impact will those restrictions have on when we can restart the season, if at all?

Plus, with no under-18 competitions or second-tier state competitions running for the foreseeable future, how long will we be feeling the effects? There could be implications for this year's draft and beyond.

Footy might be on hold, but this podcast is not. Make sure you subscribe wherever you get your podcasts to get every episode as it drops.
