Do you have a link to these new rule(s)?I’m a little worried about how Bevo will adapt to the new man on the mark rule. For better or worse much of our game plan revolves around our whole-of-team defence which relies heavily on guys guarding space. Not being able to protect space from the mark will open a lot of territory for opposition to create space and propel forward. On the flip side, it will be a huge advantage to our running backs and strong kickers who have a bit more space to hit targets and run. I love the rule change but am worried about the consequences for us. It’s not like we have the best recent history of adapting well to rule changes either.

Beyond a joke. Year after year after year.
Just leave the game alone for a few years, FFS. Stop trying to emulate the latest invention of some marketing wonks in the USA or wherever. We already have the best game in the world. The greatest threat to that is the people in charge of it. Stop trying to bring it back to the field.
