I’ve got one that really irritates me .
When did they change the rule about the defending team only having one foot on (or somewhere in the vicinity) of the goal line when the ball is being played near the line.
It used to be Both feet Behind the line The way it is now the outside defenders are almost always in front of the line with both feet ( On tv it stands out like the proverbial). It normally results in at least one side of the field being shut off to the attacking team and is seldom penalised.
Even if the Touchies actually look across the line , it’s almost impossible to see from the side if Everyones foot is on the line, as there are legs everywhere.
At times the defenders front legs are level with or behind the dummy half. It’s a joke
If it went back to what the rule was and every defender had to have both feet behind the goalline
The touchies would have a clear view along the line and attackers would’nt have defending wingers standing a metre off side.
The other one is Penalise the Wrestling out of the game.
I dont care how many penalties are blown in games Keep blowing them untill the Coaches get the message. It will stop if the league had the guts to do it
If it takes half a season to eradicate it from the game, Tough !!! at least in the end we will have the real game back again with out Bellamy’s scourge
Did anyone notice that when the crackdown on Wrestling , Hands on the ball and all rest of the crud , was on in the first 7 or 8 rounds how much faster the game was.
It certainly helped Tigers
The League has no guts and as soon as we have a few games with a lot of penalties they back off.I’d rather put up with whatever it takes to get rid of the rubbish for good
