He’s already plenty tough. Gets targeted every single game, umpires consistently avoid giving him frees unless they’re so blatantly obvious that they can’t avoid it (even then sometimes they don’t) but never complains about his treatment and just gets on with it.Good, it'll toughen the kid up
He soccered it straight at the goal line from 15-20m away. If his intention was to keep the ball in play, why would you put it into a dangerous spot for the opposition? He could have kicked it on an angle to the pocket and given himself more time/space to chase it down. He was also the last one to touch it at that point, so why was he so desperate to get hands on it before it crossed the line? I reckon he knew he was about to get done for deliberate.Common bloody sense has to apply. He did not deliberately soccer the pill. It was at his feet and he was running at top pace and he tripped on it more than kicked it. That rule was brought in to prevent players under no pressure handballing or kicking the ball through in order to get a reset and kick in.
None of the above were applicable in Moore's situation.

Looking at it another way, if a player wildly kicked the ball to a boundary with nobody in the vicinity, but the player then chased down their own ball and got to it at the boundary but their momentum carried it over, would that player then get called for deliberate out of bounds? No.

Don't think I've ever seen a player just stand there with the ball tucked under their arm, staring up at the clock on the screen. Then, when the ump tells him to take his kick, points up to the screen to indicate that he's allowed to just stand there longer if he wants.Looks we’ll be seeing a lot more play ons then because majority of players lining up for goal do that.
Well, I can say yes, which is the truth, but I doubt you'll believe me, so what's the point?
