    Maybe one problem with forks would be a post where people weren't expecting it .
    I mean we are all used to the posts and probably the reason there aren't many collisions is that part of the brain is always conscious of them. Move the posts on some pitches might be dangerous

    Put the tuning fork 2m behind the line, curve it so the crossbar is over the line. Goal line is unimpeded, conversions unaffected.

    The problems are cost (everyone needs new, more expensive posts, and a deeper foundation mounting) and shared pitches. Some clubs have two pitches back to back, sharing one set of posts, which is stupid but there you go, and they'd lose a pitch. Possibly torsional stability problems in high winds, too?

    wow! Ive never seen it but now thats been said it doesnt really surprise me . Ive played cricket on grounds where to fit two pitches in the boundaries overlap in places so a boundary fielder on one pitch has his back to the wicket only 30-40m away...

    Or two boundarty fiellders one frrm each game are facing each other!

    and come what may, wherever and whoever installs a tuning fork set og posts unless it is a completely new pitch creation, will have to involve cost implications (leaving aside physical practicalities etc). Unless - MAYBE - both sets of posts basically break at the same time.

    which isnt iunsuromoutable but most grass roots clubs will have better use for that money than to replace a set of otherwise perfectly usable posts.

    Though as said above this isnt aimed at grass root clubs anyway...

    Yes , if they do come in I am sure there won't be a program to replace posts , there will just be guidance that says as and when new posts are installed, forks are regarded as best practice where possible. And then we will see them gradually come in.
    A bit like standard pitch sizes. You don't have to dig up mis sized pitches, but if you were laying out a new pitch you would make it exactly the standard size, wherever possible

    Yup. And that could of course be decades

    So be it. At least the problem could disappear at the top levels. The law would not need changing again as lower levels catch up.

    But I think decades would be appropriate .. it's not a big problem

    It's a bit like 4g pitches actually.

    Sooooo, why not just move the posts to the back of the in-goal area...the dead ball line?
