After so long between games, there's little wonder AFL players and clubs reacted with excitement when Gillon McLachlan confirmed the league would return on June 11.
It will be a season unlike any other, but after Round 1 finished on March 22, any footy is better than nothing.
Here's how the footy world reacted on social media.
