    Zach Merrett offered 1 week for striking

    The way I look at it is that it was a non-football action, and if you happen to injure someone in the process then you leave yourself wide open to be suspended.

    Urgent umpiring overhaul needed.

    The one where the commentators crapped on for a minute or two about how there wasn't a handball and it should have been holding the ball, and then when the replay clearly showed a handball they then invented a rule that says the player can't go to ground before handballing?

    Urgent umpiring overhaul needed.

    I don't think it was as bad as the commentators made out, they struggle to know the rules half the time

    This New Runner/ Water Carrier Rule is F**ked!

    Beveridge: “Even the support, I spoke to one of the senior coaches, I won’t mention his name, the young bloke’s playing his second JLT game, stubbed his toe and got a direct turnover. “He just wanted to get a runner out there to say ‘listen mate don’t worry about it, put it out of your mind...

    I wonder what this will do to rotation numbers?

    Nic Nats Report: Tribunal - Still pathetic/soft/inconsistent

    At least it's a long away trip that's probably worth missing

    Nic Nats Report: Tribunal - Still pathetic/soft/inconsistent

    This bullshit new tribunal system makes me yearn for the bullshit old one

    Nic Nats Report: Tribunal - Still pathetic/soft/inconsistent

    This is nonsense, I didn't think for a minute he'd be suspended for not breaking the rules, but it's a brave new world now.

    Abolish the umpire bouncing the ball

    What do people have against seeing a fair and proper ruck contest?

    Abolish the umpire bouncing the ball

    Now you've really lost me

    Abolish the umpire bouncing the ball

    It's really hard to tell sometimes if people are serious or just taking the piss, it's that kinda thread

    Abolish the umpire bouncing the ball

    They'll make changes whether or not they abolish the bounce, if you have any knowledge of footy history you'd know that that has been a constant since the laws were first written down. They change.

    Abolish the umpire bouncing the ball

    We could, but i fail to see the relevance of this to the topic of the thread.

    Abolish the umpire bouncing the ball

    Not having to worry about bouncing the ball means a bigger pool of umpires to choose from means increased quality of umpiring, in addition to having the ball put into play the same way every time. But yes, that will be death of Aussie rules footy :rolleyes:

    Blaming Umpires For A Loss

    I remember watching a game as a kid where West Coast got absolutely belted by the umpires, there seemed to be a free kick to the opposition every other minute while the Eagles couldn't even get one. At the end of the half they put up the free kick numbers on the telly and imagine my surprise...

    Abolish the umpire bouncing the ball

    How is rewarding good players not a good thing?
  18. Father Jack

    Abolish the umpire bouncing the ball

    To me, getting rid of the bounce for most of the game but retaining it for the start of the game or the start of every quarter seems remarkably pointless. May as well make players wear caps for the first quarter as well

    Abolish the umpire bouncing the ball

    I reckon we'd get used to that even quicker
  20. Father Jack

    Abolish the umpire bouncing the ball

    If the bounce was abolished we will have forgotten it even existed within a year or two. The only times you notice now are when it's stuffed up anyway
