    Yeah that rule sucks balls.


    And upon seeing the Lenny one on the weekend, I think I was mistaken saying that it should have been a free kick. There definitely wasn't enough force to warrant a free under the rule.


    I think the worrying trend that was emerging last year was the sliding with the feet, that has no place in the game. Yeah head first can also be dangerous, but that's football. There has to be a middle ground between protecting the players and acknowledging that it's a rough sport.

    Punishing an incidental, unforeseeable clash of heads is not that middle ground.

    Even with the head first, if they really want to take out the slide head first (even though I don't think it is necessary) then they should just outlaw the sliding. The ones that get shown when justifying the rules are where the player has slid (whether feet or head) into or under the players legs. However it is being policed whereby if you are low on the ground and your head touches their knee/shin if you lunge forward to pick up the ball you are ****ed.

    Agree sliding with the legs is dodgy **** and should be outlawed. With the head clash one, if they rule the ball is in play then I presume the standard response will be to let it go, but if it's late then you might cop a spell because the head clash is incidental to an illegally late hit?

    Every year the AFL release a DVD to the clubs showing what is and is not allowed. They give examples. On the DVD they show how to bump, basically don't leave the ground, don't make contact with the head during the bump and tuck the arm in. Basically everything Thomas did.

    The rule has always been that the ball must be within 5 metres. So the people who will get done when there's a head clash will be the ones who leave the ground. If it's 150m off the ball then you'll get done with rough conduct because a player can't realistically expect contact, whereas if it's within 5m you can.
