    Personally, I would like to see him play on the half forward flank...

    what? 2 players jump for the ball in the ruck contest. if a third goes up. blow the whistle free kick. that is the change I am suggesting, and the one I have heard everywhere all year. you don't agree? it is not about blocking the ruckman. it is about 3rd man up. it would be easy for the up to call an illegal shepherd or equivalent if someone is blocking he path of the ruckman obviously trying to jump for the ruck. and if it is such a mystery, how do you block a ruck if you don't even know who it is???

    you may not give a [censored] if we get a bad deal for a good player, but I do. we got shafted. best 25 when fit is worth more than 65.

    50m penalties The player with the ball: Must be allowed to advance the mark by 50m without the infringing player delaying the game. Will be able to play on while the 50m penalty is being measured out. How are supposed to watch your opponent while the 50 is being measured out.... we are going to see the defending player running backwards like a bloody umpire.

    Runners and water carriers Team runners may only enter the playing surface after a goal has been kicked and must exit before play restarts. Water carriers are not permitted to enter the playing surface during live play. you watch someone collapse from heatstroke in the Darwin game now. Sues afl for workplace safety breaches, we all giggle.

    Umpire contact Players will be prohibited from setting up behind the umpire at centre bounces. How do you suppose they police that one????? Marks and free kicks in defence When defenders mark or receive a free kick within nine metres of their own goal, the man on the mark will be brought in line with the top of the goalsquare. confusing and pointless. Marking contests The 'hands in the back’ rule interpretation has been repealed so a player can now: Place his hands on the back of his opponent to protect his position in a marking contest PROVIDED he does not push his opponent in the back. yet another one that will be difficult for the umpires to police, what constitutes a push ( as soon as I felt hands on my back I would lurch forward as I had been pushed.) Ruck contests: prior opportunity A ruckman who takes direct possession of the ball from a bounce, throw-up or boundary throw-in will no longer be regarded as having had prior opportunity. Where there is uncertainty over who is the designated ruckman, the ruckman for each team will still be required to nominate to the field umpire. And if your ruckman is off the ground???????>

    I can't believe they left the ruck rules the same. everyone knows how to fix it, and probably one of the few that has almost complete consensus..... also surprised the left interchange the same (I don't mind it but I am surprised.)

    50m penalties The player with the ball: Must be allowed to advance the mark by 50m without the infringing player delaying the game. Will be able to play on while the 50m penalty is being measured out. that is a [censored] rule, will cause all kinds of problems and will slow the game down as you will have to closely watch the player with the penalty as he is running his 50. so, they are keeping the [censored] sliding rule as well. (remember that crap where brayshaw got penalized for getting kicked in the head - and not fixing the 3rd man up rubbish (so simple, 2 go up, if a third goes up, penalize...
