WTF is the AFL trying to do.....piss supporters off? This new rule where the man on the mark is not allowed to move is doing just that. I just watched the clip showing Oscar Allen lining up for goal and the Dorks player hardly moved, but was pinged 50 metres. Surely this absolute crap rule can’t be taken into the season? Will the WAFL cowtow and adopt it as well? I watched 5 minutes of a women’s match and it doesn’t look like they have it. ?????????

Is this a rule that is being trialled in the pre- season competition or are they going to implement it during the regular season? I agree it is a ridiculous rule.

Why bother having a man on the mark, just drop a witches hat on the spot!!!

This is the dumbest idea I have heard in a long line of dumb decisions by the AFL/WAFC.
WTF does it achieve?

If that's the case those fools will face the wrath of football followers everywhere. Those useless pricks should fall on their sword. Dill and Hocking. Dumb and Dumber.

I cannot see this dumb idea lasting too long at all. It will buckle under public pressure. I cannot believe these sheep of coaches not saying a word to the AFL about it. I'm certain they don't like it and even more so when it goes against their team.

This dumb new rule is I suppose one way of improving the scoring with silly 50m penalties that will no doubt happen, as every other rule change they have tried to improve the scoring to keep broadcasters happy (with more ads Ch7) the coaches have stymied with their boring defensive tactics!

Well Steve Hocking has said he is delighted with the results he’s seen so far. Can you believe this shit? It is the most unnatural thing to do to ask a footballer to stand still and not move. This will be exploited by opposition. What a tool, he has officially turned football into netball. May as well put bibs on players now Steve you wanker.

This will certainly hand the man with the kick a huge advantage. Is it introduced to increase scores?
I wonder how long it will take all those defensive coaches to figure out tactics to counter the player playing on around the mark? Umpires will have to give early calls of "play on" to give the defence a bit of a chance. They are too slow now as it is.
I thought that the AFL have brought in some silly rule changes in the past but this one takes the cake IMO.
