The AFL needs to fix this sh*t.

Players taking tackles now and throwing it to a teammate.

The good sides have made an art form of throwing the ball and the umpires don’t bother paying it because they are under instruction to keep the ball moving.

Just another AFL directive where the rules don’t matter because they want the ball in motion.

If Noble isn’t bringing this into our style of play, then we are behind the 8 ball.

"dislodged in the tackle" somehow isn't illegal disposal, so blokes just ******* throw the thing once they have arms around them.

It's a joke.

And yet you'll have players with no prior opportunity with 1 arm (or both) pinned get done for holding the ball even though they have no way to legally dispose of it

Cunners tried it a few times and got pinged every time.
