Kick Out Past The '45 ?

(Oldest Posts First)

Interesting piece in today's Indo by Philly McMahon this morning on the proposal re the kick out. Also his idea's on the attacking "mark" which in my opinion was one of the worst of the importations from Aussie Rules.

The attacking mark is one of the things killing attacking football. Very annoying to see even instinctive goal seekers like Con almost automatically opting for a mark even when one on one close to goal. Obviously being drummed into underage players too so good to see that the Dublin minors seem to be exception to this, so far!

What happens on a windy day when the ball won't cross the 45. I'm not joking. Some coastal clubs have a gale nearly every day

Stop the handpass to the keeper and you will solve a lot of problems.

I don't like it but is the mark even used that much?

Now it's just Barney yearning for the 1950s.

You probably wouldn't want to coach young players in it too much in case it gets removed. As it should.

It's great to see that the Dublin minors are the exception. .
No other team in any other county or club throughout the land, no, just Dublin.

I was half keeping track of it in the Dublin/Cork minor game and it is almost as prevalent. Hadn't noticed it so much in earlier matches. In fairness, though, both teams made good use of the long foot pass and it was when they reverted to handpass, they ran themselves into trouble.

Jesus we never stop moaning about everything. It's non stop at this stage.

I was referring to coaching of underage players in Dublin and the use of the mark by Dublin. The reference to Con might have been a hint. This Dublin minor team is an exception to how Dublin teams at all levels have tended to play in last 4/5 years. Hence their lack of success in my view and how well this team plays.

I don't watch enough football that doesn't involve Dublin teams to know or care much about what is happening "throughout the land."
