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.


Smokey all of the rules the afl are introducing are to try and improve the scoring.
They are being told by the TV networks who stump up the huge $$$$ to broadcast it there needs to be more goals as that also means more advertisement commercial breaks and we know that they are the ones behind the TV networks being able to pay those $$$$!

Can't wait to hear and see Steady Eddie back calling now he's no longer "calling" the shots at what is it, Emirates Centre of Excellence? Heritia, Leon and Andrew have a slightly different opinion.

It has been classic how the whole world’s reaction to this news has been. Good, okay, of course, what’s next. If there is someone out there who is going to miss this fool, i’d love to meet them.

No doubt this will lead to more air time for Aflw "star" Daisy Pearce.

Back to the rule - As I understand it you have stand on the mark and not move obviously forward but also now laterally. BUT if the I move a metre behind the mark (conceding that metre) can I now move wherever I want. it seems the point of the mark is the issue, so don't stand there!

Grump, you cant move backwards either. The player needs to decide do they man the mark or push back. Once stand has been called someone cant then man the mark.

The intention is to make it easier to mov e the ball, either laterally due to the man on the mark not moving, or forward if the defending team chooses to not man the mark.

Its not like they have decided we need to soccer kick the ball over the uprights or something like that.
I have a feeling my check liver light may come on this weekend

Thanks, me I would tell my players to move away and leave the mark in general play but stay within the 15 meters to cover the space, anywhere close to the 50 line then man the mark. I would tell the umpires prior to play that what we are going to do and ask that as soon as the player deviates from his line the call play on ( I understand that this is also part of the rule [the Buddy hook]) .

Could create a bit of confusion or not
