I was tempted to call this post PREPOSITION JOE in honour of the character in The Wire, but that wasn't exactly relevant to the haphazard application of prepositions under the AFL:
- In the pump
- Under the pump
- In the gun
- Under the gun
Add to those four malaphorisms:
"The loser will be placed under the furnace."
It can only be a matter of time until some poor coach, footballer or football team is put "in the cosh".
