AFL News: Beveridge blasts tackle rule change, CEO says players to blame, Hardwick fumes at umpires

  AFL News: Beveridge blasts tackle rule change, CEO says players to blame, Hardwick fumes at umpires Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge has blasted the AFL over changing its guidelines around tackling, believing the league’s decision-makers have “flinched” at media criticism. The AFL on Tuesday issued a warning that players will no longer be rewarded with free kicks when they duck or shrug their heads in tackles. It came after heated debate surrounding young Collingwood dynamo Jack Ginnivan and whether he was being umpired differently to other players. But Beveridge has hit out at the change, saying the AFL has caved into external pressure.
