The AFL is apparently going to make a decision in a couple of weeks` time on the bounce ,from what i read on the 3AW website…
According to Dwayne Russell ,they have pretty much made up their mind that it is going.
The problem with the throw is that it doesn`t give the umps much time to get out of the way of the footy ,where a bounce has 2 actions = up and down , giving more time for the ump to move away from the footy.
If they are worried about injuries , maybe just limit the amount of bounces ,but don`t get rid of it .
Has been part of the game since the beginning.
