    It will become touch footy because players get punished for punching?

    I'm guessing you took a few too many punches to the head.This is why punches aren't allowed. It causes serious damage..

    The worst rule is allowing bald people to take the field

    No trainers on the field
    One ref
    Bring back the 5m rule
    No seven tackles
    No more scrums
    40/20 from anywhere

    For mine this one has a shitload of legs.

    Don't see why a 40/20 should be different from a 30/40 or 50/10. Would actually take players out of the line and open up the edges a bit more.

    ummm let's look at it this way. First it was a punch "to the head" next it was a hair pull, a slap. and as we are already seeing it will next be a text book tackle done too hard. The trajectory is quite clear and apparent to many who would care to think about things more than they would considering what pub meal to order.

    Punches to the head are dangerous, so is walking across the road, sky diving, scuba diving, riding a jetski, swimming around penguin colonies. Drinking too much, smoking , riding a motorbike and apparently ( in Australia ) driving 5 km over the speed limit.........it's called living a life. Living a life comes with risk.......Australia is a police state, a place so bland and dull its a life barely lived.

    Why 5 mtr rule ? that's barely enough space to create anything and as we know 5 mtrs will be actually 3-4 mtrs in reality.

    I can agree with the rest.

    I f**king HATE the charge down rule
    Have for ages... and not the one where it hits your trainer!

    it’s got me absolutely f**ked why a kicker who can’t get a clean kick away get a chance for 6 more tackles

    if you get a kick charged down, the tackle count should not restart.

    I'd change the 40/20 rule to 50/20, but I'd make it that it goes both ways. So if you kick inside your own 20 and put it out past half way - you get the ball.

    I wonder if somebody could get Vossy to get on board and change this rule? He basically ran the campaign to get the rule changed that dealt with the corner post.

    Makes playmakers more important. With 10m it is easier to just go for one out hit ups over and over.

    Oh yeah, for this to work the interchange should be restricted or eliminated as well. Have a replacement rule. 5m works when the big blokes tire.

    Nah.

    All front rowers should be bald, fat and aged over 38.

    Why? The opposition team has deliberately made a play at the ball

    I get why the rule is what it is, and admittedly there is not a good answer to that other than to say, IMO you still need to allow the defence to make a play, to change the game. Defensive football is being legislated out of contact sports, and i like having avenues for a defender to change momemtum

    I dont believe you should be rewarded as a kicking team if you fail to get a clean kick away.

    I mean you're worried about conisitency with the rules right? That's why you ask the question why?
    Well why can a player charge the ball down with his hands, knock it on, and regain possession and it's play on? There is already a complete and total inconsistency in this rule in relation to other rules, and i think the benefit of that inconsistency should be shaded towards the defensive team making the good play and away from the attacking team who have f**ked up

    They weren’t.
    If a player goes down injured,allow them to run on

    That clown last night was not checking on an injured player. He was directing traffic

    Agree. But you originally said:
    Trainers have to be allowed on the field. They just need to adjust the rule about when they can come on.

    The worst rules are the ones that caused the team I was going for in the GF to be disadvantaged.
