AFL - Good Ideas, Terrible Ideas, Too Many Ideas, No Idea

…and yet we still have the “please sir, I’ve got my hand in the air. Can you please confirm it’s ok for me to be the ruckman at this stoppage?”
Stop the rot, AFL. Simply. “ If more than one player from a team attempts to go for the tap at a stoppage, the umpire will pay a free kick and 50 metre penalty to the opposition.” I think that may control the problem without the need for teacher/student type responses!!

  • Four midfield players must start inside the centre square with the two wingmen stationed along the wing.

I thought that how the game usually begins with a bounce down or ball up


#2508

Players are now allowed to turn their back on the opponent standing on the mark and kick the ball over their head as a set shot on goal.

Wtf!


#2509

I like the new rule, always found that rule that if you stepped on the line it was a bounce at the top of the square ■■■■■■■ ridiculous and the idea that you need to do a dinky kick to yourself to run over an imaginary line when you can play on without it in just about every other situation was dumb

They could have just set the mark at the top of the square for a kick in and then made it normal play-on rules


#2510

So we still have the sliding rule as stands. Ugh.


#2511

This is what you get when ■■■■■■■ from The Project do other things outside normal work duties.


#2512

I think it means the top of the square is the closest towards the (attacking) goal the man on the mark ever gets

How I read it, anyway


#2513

Oh, I bet you say that to all the pretty girls.


#2514

Can the 250,000 fuckwits that signed a petition on Monday sign the new petition for an actual cause?


#2515

So… nothing to stop the Toby Greene flykick? Or would protecting players contesting the ball be too much to ask??


#2516

efa


#2517

Do I get a grade along with the corrections? Need a C+ or higher to get my Blitzploma. Guessing I fell short…

Take your point though… meant ‘increasing’ interchanges likely to make congestion worse


#2518

What’s not to love about it? Just another part of our great game.

Fine with anything on backs to give you lift.

The Toby Greene/Mark Johnson one - studs-out, typically to the guts of a player flying the opposite direction - should be a free.


#2521

Congratulations, you got a B.

Blitzploma is yours.


#2522

My sarcasm clearly failed there, sorry. I think what he does is total rubbish and should be against the rules, for exactly the reasons you’ve said.


#2523

And knowing when to call play on


#2524

Ah, my bad

Fully expect the AFL to do nothing to deter this very very obvious thing, then randomly and punitively hand out a 9 week suspension at some point.
Or bring in a rule which stops it and also some other thing, like they did with the sliding rule, brought in because Thomas and Goodes kept sliding in studs out.


#2525

Absolutely
