    A touch is not a tackle. Plus as you start twisting and trying to break tackle, you are holding the ball under current rules.

    Doesn’t infer anything. I think you are overthinking it and that all players think about is the tackle. No. Ps. Taking on tackler is considered holding the ball under current rules. And yet players still do it. There will be less of “if I get the ball, I will get tackled which means another...

    Maybe but you can’t win the game by just being second to tackle someone, hoping for a holding the ball. Players will not simply stand aside. Someone is bound to go for it. In any case, players will get tackled no matter what. So another bounce down or free kick? Not as though much extra...

    Honestly players will take the chance. It’s like saying why would you play a cover drive when you could get out. I know, I know but it’s cricket season. Sport is about taking risks to win and players will.

    Where did I say take tackling out?

    I don’t understand why afl just doesn’t make it that if you are caught holding the ball, irrespective whether you had prior opportunity, it’s holding the ball. Players will knock on more and honestly, who cares. Simple to umpire and stops all this nonsense. Also, play with 17 or 16 players to...

    Professional sports teams have had players with covid. People do not want exemptions to anyone deemed privileged. Look at what is happening elsewhere and here in WA. McGowan has done a pretty good job ensuring a normal lifestyle. Thumbs up for me and hope that feb 5 date is extended. Don’t...

    Afl made it work in 2021, so McGowan was right. It was all about the bigwigs not wanting to stay in a hotel for 2 weeks. Us not opening up and not letting covid in highlighted how the ‘best in the land’ Victorians are incompetent and backwards. Of course they now think flooding the state with...

    I’m too scared. You have the experience and the know-how.

    Ah man I had not laughed that much in a long time. And they fell for it. However at same time it got shut down quickly, which shows they spend a considerable amount of time on our board.

    I think Young is a bit borderline. Waiting to see which direction bag of coins is thrown from. Or for the millennials, see where the credit card is waved from.

    Did we send a donkey to give these out?

    Interesting that in that afl article that if not Chesser, we were keen on goater or brown. Not Johnson! Clearly we didn’t like something there. Or we just forgot to scout a player.

    You work to your odds. Not against the odds. Sure it’s possible but you aren’t going to get a darling at pick 27 each year. That’s the slow path. Fastest path is to crash down the ladder first.
