Really???
Sandwiched between two Brisbane players at the top of the square with a bouncing ball and he jumps and punches it through for a point.
I have seen much much much more obvious ones with much less pressure not paid.
Because it rarely get's paid you would expect it to be a blindlingly obvious one when it is, this wasn't.

Nothing said about it that I can see anywhere. Had the game of been in the balance it could have been a very different story.

As said by Gus3232 he was too far from the goal. Need to be at least within the goal square distance from goals. From memory Shuey was a metre or two out from that so it was a pretty easy free for the umpires

Yes agreed technically by the letter of the law it was a correct decision.
Why does it not get paid more often?
For the 1 or 2 they pay in a year that was far from the most obvious I have seen this year.
As noted on another thread what happens when the goal square is enlarged next year?
Does this law get tweaked again?
Can you only rush a pressured behind inside the front half of the goal square?
Will there be another line in the goal square or a shaded area where you can do it from. A grey area just like the rule itself.

As per the written rules of the game it was the correct decision. Unfortunately the written rules don’t apply to all rules. Another 30-40 head high, without the ball, incorrect disposals missed as they are in every game.

Do you think potentially someone obviously thumping it through from outside the goalsquare is a bit easier to see than a missed handball or slightly high tackle in the middle of 15-20 players?

How so? When you're outside the goalsquare, there's no need for pressure to be applied. Therefore it is blindingly obviously a free kick.

The ones inside the goalsquare region are the ones with interpretation required and perhaps the ones you are thinking of. But 'pressure' is a grey area, distance out is not.

Because very few rushed behinds come from outside the goalsquare.

I imagine they keep the 9 meter rule but the umpires have to guess-timate it themselves rather than use the goalsquare as a yardstick

Can you only rush a pressured behind inside the front half of the goal square?
Yes pretty much.

Will there be another line in the goal square or a shaded area where you can do it from. A grey area just like the rule itself.
Not really a grey area, just a general lack of misunderstanding of the rules by AFL fans.
