Fans blast AFL's 'redundant' goalsquare rule change


//

AFL fans have slammed the league after they announced a new set of rules to be implemented for the 2019 season.

After a year of consultation with the game analysis team, the AFL advised clubs on Thursday that the Commission had approved the new set of rules coming to effect at the beginning of next season.

Among the most notable was the enforcement of traditional playing positions off the centre bounce which deems six players must start in the two 50 metre arcs, four in the centre square and two on the wing.

However, while proposed controversial changes to the goalsquare were not seen out, a new enforcement has effectively resulted in the same outcome as fans flocked to express their outrage on twitter.

AFL Football operations manager Steve Hocking endorsed the changes and was positive over their impact on the game.

"We have listened to our fans, players, coaches, umpires and clubs. The rule changes and interpretations protect and respect the traditions of Australian Football while progressing our game," Hocking said.

"We all want more of what makes our game great – free-flowing passages of play, one-on-one contests, and players having space to play on instinct.

"These changes are about giving players the best chance to play the best game, and giving the fans more of what they love."
