    Looking forward to see the likes of Rance, Franklin flop their heads forward as soon as they feel a hand on their back.

    I like the new rule of a player having the ability to play on while moving to the 50m penalty mark.

    I'm disappointed about this one:
    • At kick-ins, a player will no longer need to kick to himself to play on from the goalsquare.
    I used to love picking out players stepping over the line without getting pinged.

    Why didn't they get rid of the nominating the ruck rule? Umpires being able to ball up and throw in ASAP would surely open/speed the game up which seems to be the aim of these latest rules.

    How does that impact injured players? Aren't water carriers usually first to the player when they're flat out on the grass?

    Oh goodie, I look forward to that argument in the Facebook comments now. "He pushed!" "He didn't push, he just stood there!"

    I thought that was a given to change given how much it adds to the congestion of umps and boundary umpires waiting until the nominated ruckmen are identified.:huh:

    Or in Jason Roes case just forgetting the need to do anything other than take off

    For once I think the AFL have found a good balance, threw out the silly ideas publicly early on like the massive goal square and came out stuff that will help the game flow.

    Big fan that hands on back is no longer a free, a forward or back should be able to hold position on a player

    The only issue is that it will be another of those interpretation nightmares for umps and just make their jobs harder.

    In addition, as a young player, you’re always taught to play in front and that you’d be protected, not anymore, most will be wanting to play from behind.

    Therefore, great rule for Dan McStay.;)

    Yeah though I can see this interpretation being applied incorrectly by the player in front simply bending forward when the timing is right. I don't see how adding the ambiguity of "he's just defending his position" is going to prevent that at all.

    Yeah that’s true. I’m happy with interpretation rather than those times the umpires looked embarrassed awarding a hands in the back. As much as all club whinge I think the umpires perceived bias directly correlates to if your team got the free kick.

    It’ll be all about extension of the arms which I’m pretty sure I’ve heard during the season. The umpires for all the grief they cop are a pretty switched on group. Now the AFL’s instruction to them on the other hand is a different story.

    They kind of did, but definitely not to the degree you're describing.
    • Where there is uncertainty over who is the designated ruckman, the ruckman for each team will still be required to nominate to the field umpire.
    i.e. if it's obvious who the ruckman is, no need to nominate. Any third man up is still a free kick, presumably. I think they were playing it this way late in the year anyway, as I remember several games where they weren't asking for hands up before balling up.

    I thought of it as the bane of the Irishmen - they always seemed to get caught.

    On the taking the ball out of the ruck rule, or the "Clark Keating making Collingwood our bitch rule" as it should be known.

    There is no coincidence that the emergence of a dominant Collingwood ruck sees a change in this rule.

    I didnt like the rule in the first place, but it would never have been in place if it wasnt for Eddies bleatings.

    I like the removing the runners rule. Even if it makes it harder for young teams
