I heard the term "chaos ball" used way too much this weekend.

The new lazy footy commentators description for getting the ball in quick to the forward line. BT, the moron, used it 36 times in the one call on Friday night. As usual these dickheads ruin a good match.
Was the same last year, same lazy commentator, best remembered for trying to introduce candy as an expression in every day language not just yank sitcoms.

Cameron Ling even congratulated Maynard from bombing the ball to the GWS players because it went to ground. Like he hack kicked it forward and Ling congratulated the smart decision. Fair Dinkum
Yeah I remember that. It was an absolute mung that went to a 2v1 in a position that disadvantaged his teammate. GWS players easily got the loose ball and rebounded it. "Great kick". Absolute muppet.

I think it’s a valid term. Kicking inside 50 with the intention the ball hitting the ground rather than marking does create chaos.

It’s not as bad as ‘surge mentality’ aka players trying to move the ball towards their goal, and ‘didn’t blaze away’ aka professional footballers thinking about who the kick to before they kick it.

Are you suggesting they look for open space to kick to, not one of their players ?

I did hear Peter Moore suggest Darcy would prefer to play up forward, but given the delivery at the Pies he'd be better off pllaying down back - knows a bit about the game Peter.

I think there is an element of chaos in how some teams play. Richmond tap the ball forward a lot and capitalise on tackling pressure to create spillages. The overhead blind handball gets a fair workout too.

I do think getting the ball forward by any means and getting it to ground for their runners is a genuine tactic.

If you kick it the forwards advantage sure, not just hack it forward without even looking.

If the Pies had ignored their aspergic coach and delivered chaos balls in the rain, they would have won.

If Brian Taylor or Dwayne Russell was smashed in the face by a cricket bat every time it was uttered I believe I could cope with it adequately.

Prestia runs through the middle of the ground kicks the ball into the forwardline to Lynch who spills a mark but is quick to regather and kicks truely

Commentator ... Richmond love the chaos ball style of footy lol

You sure did. And so did I. While I'm here, is there any other sport where the commentators (if that's what they are) spend half the
game talking/wondering/generally blah-ing on about the crowd size?
How does that annoy you more than the unstructured and illinformed whinging at umpiring by play by play callers or all the other self indulgent nonsense that comes out of BTS mouth?
