The Wikipedia article of the Australian Football League (AFL) states:
[The VFL] made several innovations early on to entice the public's interest, including [...] the formal establishment of the modern scoring system, in which six points are awarded for a goal and one point for a behind.
It doesn't, however, specify what the original scoring system was, the one the modern scoring system replaced. Doing my own research on Google hasn't come up with anything useful either.
What was/were the scoring system(s) of Australian rules football before the modern scoring system?
