Whats the penalty if you don't line up in the 6 6 6 format, or what happens if the player from the other team follows and both teams are not in 6 6 6.

grabbing the ball from the ruck is now going to become a really frequent thing

Mason Cox will love it as will the likes of Nic Natanui

So they haven’t gotten rid of the absurd ruck nomination.

You really have to wonder sometimes.

FMD, rules committee should be renamed confusion committee. Still nominating a ruckman is so effing ridiculous and time wasting. Don’t mind that the ruckman can take possession at bounce and throw in’s, it’s the only thing they seem too have got right. Did they even look at the interpretation of the so called taking out of the legs, they’ve had plenty of examples of where it was paid when it shouldn’t have, eg. Brayshaw. Our game is fast, chaotic and tough to umpire, players make mistakes so do umpires, the basic rules I remember (a long time ago) playing under have been totally compromised with all the add on’s that have been created or should that be “upgraded”. Thank f...k I love our Demons, and I like footy’s new “chaotic” game, the players these days are super athletes, the confusion committee should go back too the basics.

Correct

And there would have been a huge amiunt of resources dedicated to this over the past 12 months 🤦‍♂️

This is classic AFL incompetence.

They spend all year focusing on congestion and then they bring in a rule which will increase congestion (removing prior opportunity for ruckmen, who can now just grab it out of the ruck and be tackled, forcing repeat stoppages).

I don't hate any of the rule changes per se, I just hate having to learn new rules every year. It makes me feel very sorry for the umpires, especially when there are a few changes in there that are ripe for making judgement errors.  

Ho hum. I'd love to know where the AFL are getting their intel that the fans want the rules changed in order to make the game more interesting or whatever. I'm in my mid 30s and have seen the style of the game change heaps over time, including the Terry Wallace flood and the Paul Roos turn everything in to a scrap being in vogue, and I've never had my interest in the game affected by it. The main thing that affects my interest level is how the Dees are going.

The hands in the back rule is going - we'll be back where we started with just a push in the back. Was unnecessary and confusing when it was brought in and no doubt confusing again when removed

I'm predicting a disaster for umpiring interpretation, if Steve's explanation is anything to go by

I must he completely missing the point of some of these. No more kicking to yourself after a kick in? Talk about fixing something that wasn’t broken.

i don't understand how some of these changes were not potential changes that were discussed with all the groups and stakeholders towards the end of the season. at least not reported in the media. seem to be last minutes changes.

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.)

I'll bite mr know-it-all. How do you prevent players blocking the ruckman if no one nominates as a ruckman?

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???

No nomination and again  Mr Brayshaw is not penalised for the mouse trap down at gheelong, I dislike the nominating. The rule was to stop the 3rd man up, "simplesness" penalise the fool who's infringing.

  • 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. 

Presumably they mean uncertainty in the umpire's mind. So players will now have to read umpire's minds now in order to know they need to nominate.

Appalling they haven't fixed the contact below the knees rubbish.

The new 50m play-on rule sounds like madness.  The penalty is often too big already.  If the player receiving the 50m wants to get to his new mark quickly the main impediment is the speed of the umpire running backwards.  Will he be allowed to overtake the umpire? Will that be the moment he calls play-on?  Will the oppos running alongside the player getting the 50m have to stay 10 metres away I wonder?    Has the AFL thought out the details?

I think this rule change has been overlooked. It could be huge for us and anyone else with a tall, dominant ruck.

Gawn, who generally gets first hands on the ball, will be able to do a quick, clearing handball to our mids. He should be even more important next year. Preuss at 206cm could also be handy and Bradtke is same height (?).

This could inadvertently be the biggest of all the rule changes for us. I look forward to hearing training reports over the summer as to how they practice for this change 

Get on Maxy for the 2019 Brownlow

Geez I miss Demetriou

Kick in rule will be interesting. 

Use a backman with loads of pace and a thumping kick. Should put the ball well over the centre.

I.e. Frosty

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.
