  1. The Scrapping of the Bounce is Imminent

    Stupid away-strip jumpers, no melees, no power full forwards anymore kicking over 100 goals a season, no one on one duals like Jakovich on Carey or Knights on Van der Har. Just teams full of midfielders racking up meaningless possessions in the backline, umpires who have selective vision and who suffer anxiety and workplace injuries over trying to bounce the ball. What a joke.
