So, the afl have said that each team must start at the centre bounce with 6 players inside each 50m arc. To reduce "congestion" One would assume the penalty for a significant breach of this would be a free kick from the centre to the non offending team, given thats where the ball is at a centre bounce. However, i reckon the following scenario is an absolute lock to happen in 2019 and make a mockery of the rule. Team a kicks a goal with 45 seconds left in the last q to go, say, 2 points up. Team b now needs to kick a goal inside 45 seconds to win, but team a are no longer able to just push players back, as team b would get a free. But, what if team a said, ok, and just pushed all bar 4 players into the defensive 50? Team b gets the free kick but are then heavily outnumbered in their forward line (as they cannot push players forward and must start 6 back), and now face an impossible task, despite having the ball. Thoughts? am i nuts?
