Agree.

But I wouldn't be definitive about any rule change until it's had at least one championship! Lets see how the smartest managers set up to use it / nullify it during the  championship.

Then we'll have a better idea of it's true worth.

Cian O'Neill has Kildare using it well, set piece scores I call them. We have scored a lot points like this.

Clever simple tactic. Big brother is always watching https://twitter.com/KCsixtyseven/status/844266452005937155

At least he credited my observations,. One of the bether gaa journalists on Twitter in fairness worth a follow.

Absolutely, tossup between himself and John Fogarty for the best gaa journalist who regularly churns out articles.

I think the rule has the potential to open up the space between the FB line and HB/midfield, as if your midfielder takes a mark from an opposition kick-out, the players closest to him are effectively taken out of the game.
If you have a runner coming from your own half at pace, he can attack the space behind them in combination with a runner from the FF line.
Gives the attacking team the option of a quick one-two or even a ball over the top into the space that has been vacated by the runner from FF.
If you were any use you'd be playing.
