Any harm in talking about the aesthetics of the game? Personally I find it great to watch. Seems to flow a lot better. No pulling and dragging, no blanket defences because of the mark. I say take out the behind posts and incorporate the rest of the rules into GAA football.

I enjoyed it also and agree with a lot of this. Not sure about the tackle though. However in football we do need a defined tackle

I don't make the rules. Maybe we already do have a clearly defined tackle but in that case Id like to see it reffed consistently as it seems to be very inconsistent from game to game and within games too. Its frustrating as a fan and must be more so as a player

Without checking I thing the Treoir refers to tackling as a skill and you can only tackle the ball.
Sure nearly every tackle in practice is technically illegal and every ref seems to have their own interpretation.

that's what I mean and I have probably phrased it wrong earlier. Its very frustrating anyway and something I think needs looking at

Enforce the 4 step rule first.

If you enforce the 4 step rule there would be a free every time someone got the ball.  I say increase it to seven steps and enforce it.
I still remember the 12 steps Oconnor took against us this year in Castlebar before scoring a goal.  It is ridiculous.

Agree with the definition of a tackle, I donít know what you can do as it seems to depend on the ref and not the rule book
I used to be indecisive but now I'm not too sure.

If this was properly enforced many of the problems in the game around contact and the tackle would be eradicated.

I suppose we had the Karma of Con OíCallaghan doing the same thing to us! :-\

Replace four steps with three seconds. Simple.

Never watched the rules series this year live, I've been away - but I've always liked the concept.

I think the GAA would improve if we adapted the Aussie's tackle, a clear defined tackle would be in the interest of everyone, especially the players. Another upside of this would be an instant end of the death by handpass that seems to be turning people off the game.

The four step rule is easily the stupidest in the sport, which is why it's so regularly fudged.
