100% on the money, and the 50 metre rule is a blight on the game.Or we could scrap the stand rule?...and just actually call the as written penalties for encroaching over the mark, which they refused to do and Hawthorn and Richmond abused the hell out of for most of the last decade.
It really looks ridiculous watching players run around the man on the mark while they stay glued to the spot like a cricketer in the 1800's, fearful of the umpires wrath.
Rules upon rules because they are always trying to "curate" the look of the game and making problems where none should exist.
