Why not names on Players Jumpers?

I have been thinking about this for a while and I'm sure many of you have,Why can't the AFL pass a law that will have players with their names on the back of their Jumpers like in Soccer?
It will help the Common supporter recognise players more also and it won't be such a bad idea.

As long as it looks good and we don't have to go through decades of sh1tty looking namebars until they get it right like we did with guernsey numbers

"They picked on the wrong man - and the wrong country. It was like pouring petrol onto a fire as far as I was concerned.

There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."

I guess they have just never taken the idea from international sports and have wanted to keep this as an Aussie Rules tradition. But it wouldn't be a bad idea and I am behind it.

This would be a sweet idea, because then we could order guernseys with club legends names and numbers on the back like many soccer fans do.

Doggies fans could get a Teddy Whitten guernsey
Carlton fans could get a Williams or Kernahan or Doull guernsey
I could get a Darren Jarman guernsey and so on

Sweeeeet
