Looks like the AwFL are changing the rules again.
Only 75 rotations per game plus some other stuff.

Yeah, well, Steve, you would be better off instructing umpires to umpire to the rules they already have than creating new rules, you are only going to confuse them even more.

Somebody needs to shoot Steve Hocking. Him and Gil have done their upmost to destroy the game. Eyebrows looks like a saint in hindsight.

The 75 rotation policy is stupid and just means more runners will get a game than football players (like Sheridan did when they reduced the cap to 90). Having said that, it will suit our new less taxing game plan, and we have a lot of midfielders who can spend time rotating forward instead of going to the bench.
The 1m lateral movement on the mark is absolutely ridiculous though and will lead to more bewildered fans as their teams get 50m penalty’s awarded against them for something that has zero impact on the playing of the game.

How's the umpire going to discriminate between a 0.9m and a 1.2m lateral movement?
This Steve Hocking position should have been axed... call it Covid19 staff reduction...

So they are decreasing the rotations, increasing the length of qtrs back to 20mins only to introduce fatigue? Try flying back a forth every other week, that’ll do it. Keep the ‘hub’ theory and I’ll feel a little easier about it but... really?

What difference is it actually supposed to make that someone moves a metre on the mark? How is that supposed to influence a game? Ridiculous.

Top Men have been working on this, Corp. Top Men.

Of course it’ll make all the difference we have been looking for...

And think of all the work Tabs will have to do when it is stuck in our back half. There's a throw in, so Tabs has to run back inside the attacking 50. Once its thrown in he has to run up to the wing to take the relieving mark. Then the ball goes out of bounds again, and Tabs is sprinting back inside the attacking 50 again. Etc etc.
I'm glad they are trying these out somewhere else before bringing them into the big league.
