AFL even awards a point if you hit the post

Post by NRL&NFLweLaughATafl » Sun Mar 24, 2019 5:14 pm

So we keep getting told AFL is a game of skill when you can
-drop the ball as much as you like :lol:
-play on with your foot on the outside boundary line ](*,)
-awarding points for missing :-k
-giving people a shot at goal if they actually catch a ball 8-[
-removing crossbars to make it easier to score :(/

But now I have heard a new one. If you hit the post when you take a shot at goal. It is counted as a point :lol: =D =D

The easiest scoring and most poorly skilled game on the planet. AFL proudly rewarding poor skills for a 100 years :drunk: =P~ =D =D :(/

NRL award a conversion if you hit the post and the ball goes between the posts. In AFL that's not a goal

Never realised quite how much hate there was for AFL from our Northern friends.

This is never points in any other sport.

I know its beyond your comprehension but in a high scoring game like AFL where scores are regularly over 100 points, a point is a very minor reward, so much so its actually seen as a penalty because it gives possession back to the opponents. If we allowed goals when the ball hits the post and goes between the posts that would be an unfair reward for mediocrity. The NRL allow that dont they lol

Yes it is beyond my comprehension that you get a point if the ball bounces off the upright post back into play.

There is no points reward in any other football code I know of for hitting the post and not going in.

:lol: I’d really like to see Wookie and any of the other Afl laddettes in here try and “get over a line the width of the field to score” on any rugby league field in nsw where any division six local community club team is defending it

:lol:

LETS just be honest, I think we can all safely agree that given the opportunity in front of them Wookie and his Afl co would be seen screaming in high pitched yelps running the opposite direction and out of he ground.

:lol:



:lol:

so if a player hits the post, it bounced back in to play and he then kicked a goal isnt that a greater reward for missing? A single point in a game where scores are routinely over 100 is not a reward, it's a miss where the opposition are given possession. Keeping the ball in play allows a greater chance of kicking a goal.

:lol: that was when players could kick straight nlol. Scores over 100 are hardly ‘routine’ anymore nlol. They’re more like the exception to the norm, a fairly rare occurance.

I think you’ll find we’ve seen the over 100 scores drop markedly since the afls bungled expansion into the Gold Coast and western Sydney. So please, just for accuracy and to keep things current, don’t suggest your boys are routinely kicking scores over 100...because they don’t.

Warmest regards,
King :afro:

which doesnt make either way right or wrong. In Soccer you can hit the post, it bounces straight back to you, and then you can kick the goal. In AFL you dont get that second chance to score goal
