Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley is frustrated by the 6-6-6 starting positions rule.
He admits the rule has been confusing for both players and fans, and wants this addressed immediately.
“We can’t tell the difference between accidental or deliberate,” Buckley told SEN’s Whateley.
“I think part of the job of the lawmakers is to remove grey area and create rules that one, can be understood and adhered to by the players so they can actually play to the way that the lawmakers intend to be, and secondly, is for the supporters to understand that the flow of the game not to be stopped.
“If you can’t tell the difference between what’s accidental and what’s deliberate then there’s clearly something to look at there.”
The Magpies coach believes removing the warning for the starting positions would help fix the grey area in the rule.
“I believe it would’ve been about a settling in period,” Buckley said.
“It would be interesting if they called around the clubs - do you think that you’ve had enough time to settle in? Because it was there for the benefit, I would’ve thought, for its infancy.
“It would be worth the call I would’ve thought, but I’m not going to be doing the AFL’s job for them.”
The Saints breached the 6-6-6 rule by putting a player behind the ball in the dying seconds of Sunday night's clash against Fremantle
They only received a warning because it was their first offence of the game, which former St Kilda captain Nick Riewoldt believes is unacceptable.
“It’s exploitable, that’s why it’s an absolute joke to have a warning,” he told SEN Breakfast.
“How can you have a warning?
“Why wouldn’t you, with eight seconds left in the game, roll the dice?
“If you get away with it, then great, you’ve got an advantage and if you don’t, well then it’s only a warning.”
