  1. It's a can of worms rule. It won't add speed to the game,only more infringements. It's not right to want teams kicking scores from mediocre penalties. As you say Will,determining when the player with the ball moves offline to play on will be hard to adjudicate as it's natural instinct to move on the mark.

One thing i noticed watching a lot of old games over the last few days is even with the two umpire system,the play flowed because the umps were quick with the whistle not allowing the congestion and more one on one contests. Dump this silly rule and get rid of prior oppurtunity then it will open up the game. Oh and bring back the 15 metre penalty.

I never forget Murray and Peter Wilson picked me up at the airport in Perth when i flew down for half time match at Subi oval,think i was 12 then. Can't recall John but i was only at East Freo for a year. That got me thinking so watched the 85 GF between EF and Subi last night.The game was pretty slick back then with little congestion.
  6. That physique looks more like a carton than a six pack these days Weight rooms were only just coming into vogue and i wasn't a mirror guy, bit of boxing yes. I used to watch Murray Wrenstead carry bricks while running up and down the ground at practice in his early days.
  7. Hope he's got his socks pulled up. You know that saying something about if you can't play the part,look the part. We will miss his mother more not serving the pies in the outer. No honestly i hope he goes well,i wouldn't like to play on him and think his best footy is to come.
  8. The boys at the club used to say Mambo number 5 was my song.
