3 hand passes .  One too many , but 3 OK for the present .

Sideline balls : irrelevant , nothing wrong at present except time used up , should have penalties for messing about .

The Mark : Current OK for kickouts , not sure about awarding a forward a free punt for a clean catch , a bit too much like Aussie rules , just slows that game up .

Sin Bin : Not as relevant in GAA as in for instance rugby where might is right .  Black card OK with me , and maybe two yellows should result in 15 mins in the bin rather than a red card .  Anything which allows referees flexibility in reffing players behaviour is to be welcomed , provided it is even handed .

Kick out : Travelling beyond 45 is OK for senior players , just worry about under age etc .  Just hope there are not too many gale force winds around . Counting a goal keeper plus six defenders from both teams inside the 45 on kickout  completely impractical , wonder who thought that one up . As bad as the offside rule in soccer , artificial in the extreme .

The really important one is the 3 hand passes , maybe we might get back our football from the basketballers .

Freetakers should be forced to kick from standing position. Joke watching them "steal" 20 yards in a "run up"

Passing the ball with open hand  into the net is joke,  a goal should be scored with the boot, agree about the 3hand passes.
