The Mark

    I think this topic deserves a thread of its own as it's going to cause as much trouble as VAR has in soccer.

    I think the advanced mark in particular is a terrible idea and it's just turning the game into Aussie Rules. A free kick at goal for catching the ball is not what GAA should be about.

    They've even named the national league the AFL now too. I know the A stands for Allianz as they sponsor it but it's some coincidence that AFL also stands Australian Football League.

    It is awful. I don't think I have ever seen a cheaper score than the one Michael Murphy got last Saturday.

    To gain a mark, in my opinion, the catch should be contested/player must be off the ground etc but the game is hard enough to ref as it is.

    But get rid of it.
