    And from the glossary of all wisdom:

    Kick-in
    (or sometimes kick-out) the return of the ball back into play after a behind has been scored.

    following shall apply:
    (a) the football must be Kicked back into play by any Player of the
    defending Team within a reasonable time;
    (b) the football must be Kicked from within the Goal Square. For
    the avoidance of doubt, one foot of the Player must be behind
    any of the lines which define the Goal Square at the time when
    the Player Kicks the football;
    (c) Other than the Player kicking the football into play, all
    Players must immediately vacate the area within 5 metres
    of the Goal Square.
    (d) the Player Kicking the football into play may, provided they have
    Kicked the football clear from their hands, regain possession
    and play on from within the Goal Square.


    Presumably the ball has been out of play and is going back in!
    And that process starts from the goal square which the player kicks it out of

    Really I'm only arguing the point as we all know what's occurring regardless, it's had a term since day dot, so why the need to change? Does it keep me up at night? Nope :d

Or maybe we shouldn't even call it AFL, we should call it Australian Rules only and AFL only refers to the top-tier league of Australian Rules

    But yes, to be fair commentators should know what they're talking about considering that's what they're paid to do (comment on the game)
    yes it's a niche local sport, so we should be trying to keep it's unique identity in tact. That's what makes it special. I don't think anyone on here is targeting newcomers. It's more a commentary on the landscape of the game, and one that is butchered mostly (as well as encouraged) by commentary teams and personalities trying to make them selves stand out. Newcomers will most likely be watching live games to have it explained to them, and they get derwayne and his mates dribbling about paint and whatnot.

    And yes it should be referred to Aussie Rules when being specific as that's what it is as a sport. I play basketball twice a week not NBA ;d

    Call it footy i guess depending which state you are in and what the dominant football code is.

    All fun and games.

    i don't use it personally, I'm too young. But that's the club many have supported from birth. If we share it's history then good on anyone for cheering on their souths.

    I was thinking about this for just half a second..do we really want our commentary to sound like ch 9 cricket? Do we really want warneisms and all the other stuff that makes me reach for the mute button?

    I actually thought kick-in was the term since day dot!
    I knew him as a gentle young man, I cannot say for sure the reasons for his decline
    We watched him fade before our very eyes, and years before his time

    Far out...this is a classic case of 'everyone is really bored because there's no proper footy on'. Round 1 cannot come quickly enough!

    Great call on both counts. Which leads me to another pet hate. Time added at the end of a quarter is "time on" not bloody RED TIME!
    Those who have the greatest power to hurt us are those we love.

    No, you misunderstand. We were NEVER called "Souths". It was always "South".
