What is coroners inquest in bob woolmer case?

No the only requirement is that you are good at getting the ball, good at getting it to your team mates, and can handball /kick accurately so as to get the ball, and be able to give it to your team mates or kick goals. It helps to be tall because marking the ball is an important means of getting and controlling the ball- if you are really short your opponent would probably out mark you all the time. I have seen some great small players and take a look at how tall the past legend of Collingwood-Lou Richards or Hawthorns Platten are, they are not very big at all and Platten he was like a ferret because his size made him able to get in and out of packs quickly and pick the ball up off the ground while running (which is hard for taller players). Platten was fast and agile making him hard to catch. There certainly is a place for small players but the height disadvantage means that they really have to excel in the other areas.

(Matty Bowen) what can you say about him??

No, but the game has changed a lot in the past twenty years. Smaller players could get in amongst it as rovers (on-ballers). But it has changed to be an aerial game, and height is an advantage. That being said, your best asset is speed. Some of the best players have not been too tall, but have been very fast (Mcleod, Burgoyne come to mind). And fitness helps - you have to be able to run all day.

no, being tall has it's advantages in certain positions for example if your only 170cm tall you wouldn't go playing at full-forward or as a ruckman, but there are also advantages if you are short they usually get around quicker and get a lot of the ball, rovers are more often than not the shortest bloke on the team. Some of the best players in the AFL aren't very tall for example Ben Cousins isn't very tall
