The SANFL have implemented rule changes for Season 2016 that will come into full effect this weekend.

In recent weeks, members, players and supporters have spoken to me about these rule changes and therefore I feel it necessary to make a statement on behalf of the Club.

The Central District Football Club is fully supportive of the capping of rotations in season 2016. We were reasonably happy with the cap at 50 rotations, but have accepted the late change to 60 rotations.

The Central District Football Club however, is strongly opposed to the ‘last possession out of bounds rule’ and we believe that the capping of rotations should have been allowed to do its job before any other significant rule changes were made.

This rule changes the very fabric of our game and we have fought hard to have it reconsidered, unfortunately to no avail.

The SANFL are in no doubt aware of our Club’s position and I have certainly made my objections well known, as has our Senior Coach Roy Laird. Chief Executive Kris Grant resigned in protest from the Laws of the Game Committee upon implementation of the rule prior to the commencement of the trial game period.

Unfortunately we do not get to make the rules, only to abide by them. Like the nine other Clubs, what we now have to do is move on and play to the new rules.

I have made this statement so that there is no confusion on where we sit, but also, that there is no further need for dialogue on this matter.

Now get pumped and ready for Good Friday Football at My Money House Oval as we start our 2016 campaign. We hope to see a big crowd Friday and at all of our home games in 2016.
