2. Simple and Attractive Design;
The design of this website is very simple, yet professional. The design should not take away or distract from the content. Websites with excessive use of Flash and moving images can be very distracting. Use design to help you get your message to visitors, not to distract them from the message. Colors should not be hard on the eyes, and text should be easy to read.
3. Easy Navigation;
Navigation and links provide opportunities to incorporate design elements in to this website; however, navigation schemes not are so elaborate that the user has no trouble knowing where to click to move to another page. Links to their most important pages is easily founded on every page. A good rule of thumb is that every page should be accessible in two clicks from your home page (this may not be possible with larger sites).

7. Audio/Video
The official internet/3G broadcast partner for this official site of the AFL is Bigpond. This site also provides exclusive broadband content including streaming video for international fans via its website. Bigpond also hosts the official websites of all the 16 AFL clubs.Video is not live stream, fans must wait at least 12 hours after the game before it is available as video. Video quality is low and freezing occurs regularly during streaming. Less common but irritating problems include failed links, video ending before the end of the game and audio out of synchronization with video as well as audio.
