One notable variant of the handpass which began to develop was known as the flick pass , in which a player used his open hand instead of his fist to propel the ball. The legality of the flick pass has varied throughout the history of the game: This was not widely popular, as the style of punch pass used at the time a much more cumbersome disposal than a flick pass, and it resulted in the game being played at a slower pace.

The flick pass had the significant drawback that its action was close to that of a throw, and different umpires had different interpretations of what was legal. In , motivated by a desire to eliminate this inconsistency, and to speed up the game further, the Victorian Football Association VFA legalised throwing the ball, provided the throw was with two hands and both hands were below shoulder-height.

The throw-pass was legal in the VFA and in some other competitions affiliated with it from until , but it was never legal under ANFC rules. The emergence of handball as a more widely used skill took place in the s and s. In Western Australia , Graham 'Polly' Farmer and Barry Cable brought a new dimension to the game using handball, with Farmer often looking for a runner to handpass to after each mark, to speed up the ball movement.

The modern handpass technique, known as the rocket handball , was pioneered by Kevin Sheedy. The ball is held on a slight angle with the fist ending up in or close to the other open hand. This enables a handpass to achieve distance and speed comparable to a short kick and is easier for teammates to catch. Professional Australian footballers are typically competent at handballing using either punching arm. With the wide adoption of the handball in the s, midfielders such as Greg Williams and Dale Weightman became handball specialists, renowned their playmaking ability by preferring to handball in the midfield.

In the s, Richmond Football Club wingman Kevin Bartlett became famous for a style of play which involved use of the handball to dispose of the ball before an opponent was about to tackle. Although rules were uniform across the country, local interpretations and customs varied.

South Australian players became known for a very localised style of play in which players excelled in quickly releasing the ball. The style, known pejoratively interstate as a crow throw derived from croweaters , a popular term for South Australians , became damaging to opposition sides in interstate matches , as well as a potent weapon for the Adelaide Crows when the club first entered the Australian Football League in the AFL season.

The legality of the technique was frequently brought into question in the AFL. The South Australian style featured a significantly shorter swinging distance between the punching hand and holding hand, allowing it to be executed in almost any stance. This also made it more difficult for a tackler to attack the swinging arm.
