The Bemused Twitter Reaction To The Introduction Of 'The Mark' To Gaelic Football

The Bemused Twitter Reaction To The Introduction Of 'The Mark' To Gaelic Football
By PJ Browne Updated

Motion 41 aka 'The Mark' was passed at GAA congress on Saturday.

It just edged over the two-thirds majority required with a 68% yes vote.

The new rule, which could be introduced for this summer's Championship, allows a player who catches a ball from a kick-out past the 45m - without it touching the ground - to take a mark. He may then take a free kick or play on immediately.

Reaction to its introduction to the game has been mixed.

Many have questioned why it was not first trialled. The mark was trialled a number of years back during the league, though was not permanently introduced to the game.
