No keep the ball a la les Dubs or back passes to gk. Rugby league has ball to opposition after x phases.

Basketball has a shot clock, I suppose you want that too?

No need to imitate every other sport or any other sport for that matter.

Defining a gaelic football tackle and legal means of dispossessing an opponent will fix a lot of our ills.  If a team can get 4 players around an opponent and the player in possession cannot find an open player, then maybe the 4 tacklers should get possession for assuming the risk of leaving their own markers?
There is a definition of a tackle - a legal attempt to win or dispossess an opponent

Could we get a definition of 'a legal attempt'?
If you were any use you'd be playing.

I think any attempt that does not involve grabbing the player or jersey and is not a punch or a slap design to hurt rather than dispossess should be allowed . but ther important part is if the player in possession hold the ball for longer than 4 step or that similar time the referee should reward the tackle as if the player holds on long enough he's sure o get a free at present.
the exception to all of this being Aidan o se who every one knows is big enough to take it
