Former North Ballarat Roosters VFL Coach Gerard Fitzgerald says the current financial woes of the AFL may change it forever.

He's backed up Gerard Healy's comments saying the days of full time professionals may be over, with the game becoming a semi professional environment.
 
Fitzgerald is yet to coach his new side, the Hamilton Kangaroos in the Hampden League, given the shutdown of all local football and netball.

Meantime the AFL and the game's 850 players are expected to sign off on a pay deal today to support the future of the league.
