Looks to me like Philly is getting ahead of Phillys Major problem, can't defend the high ball.

Yes it's been a major issue in our 28 game record breaking unbeaten run alright...

Since when is chest height a high ball, I saw a mark being made from a ball caught at the ankle.. it's nothing to do with a high ball

It's to do with having a free shot for routinely catching any sort of pass

To encourage high fielding the mark should only from kick outs and in order to increase the number of long kick outs the goalie should have a run up of 5 yards or more.

Feck the mark, keep it flowing. Didn't stop wonderful sights in the past of O'Shea or Mullins pulling a ball from the air and doing something with it, its not required.
