Hawks v Ess & half time siren has gone.
Hawks kick for goal and the ball bounces thru. Goal.
The ball bounced! Doesn’t that mean play on? The play is over. It shouldn’t count!
What IS the rule?

But as soon as it bounced it was in play!!!
There’s no difference between a ball in the air and a ball on the ground (aside from the obvious physical difference). As soon as the player kicks it, it’s in play, and as soon as it comes to rest, gets taken by another player, or crosses the boundary/goal line, the quarter is called.

I was on a halftime=fulltime double several years ago, needed North to be up at HT against the Cats iirc, 1 second left and a Geelong player kicks it, siren goes, bouncing bouncing........................

Cost me $500 which in that day got you quality 3 way action with all the trimmings, I ended up having to sleep with the missus.

Wrong.
The play us until it's touched by another player.
Not quite. If it is touched and goes through it is a point.

If an attacker forces it through with a punch it is not a point.

It's a bit complicated, CBF finding the actual rule, but basically defenders need to stop the ballmomentum tiward the goal. FFS fu** off these ads I cant see what I am typing
