LEAVE the game alone.As far as I am concerned, proposals for change released by the AFL Laws of the Game Committee go too far.There will always be change. I accept that. I'm prepared to be an advocate for some, but let's not go over the top.I am strongly opposed to the proposal to have goals allowed when the football hits the inside of the goal post and continues through in the goal-scoring area.There is no need to go down the path of other football codes.Australian Rules has 150 years of tradition and the hitting the post rule is one aspect of the game which makes it unique, just as the shape of our playing arena is unique.We don't want to see the fabric of the game changed to the point that it will one day be unrecognisable.We have something special and we should keep it that way.If there is a concern about mistakes being made by goal umpires, technology is the path to take.Investigate the technology, have some trials and I am sure the right answer will be found.I am just as strong in my resolve on leaving the interchange system as is.The number of interchanges will sort itself in time and a natural cap will develop.It is hard to imagine interchange rotations increasing much more.As a player I do not generally get too caught up with issues of this nature, but it important that the players association has a strong voice in representing the players.Those sitting back taking an overview of the game are best positioned, but this does not mean we have to agree with all proposals put fiorward.My biggest concern is that those with the power to make changes can tend to jump at shadows.We cannot be making changes every time a new study comes out or the media plays up an issue.How far do you go?Any rule change takes time to adjust to.I am still not fully over the way umpires always interpret holding the ball when players are over the football at ground level.I got caught up in a holding the ball decision against the Sydney Swans on Sunday.I was on the ground over the football, the Swans' Keiren Jack tackled me and then one of my teammates joined in to block the football in. The call was made against Hawthorn rather than an individual player.I couldn't do anything about it. I'm still scratching my head.After all that, if Hawthorn fans are worried on the back of two losses, don't be. We're ready to bounce back against Melbourne tomorrow and get some momentum going into the finals.
