Recommended Posts

That free against gus was a disgrace.

The free kick against Jetta showed a complete inability to understand the game. A fair contest by two players both holding the ball should have been a ball up. No wonder Shocking Hocking wants to reduce the rule book. The game is getting overly technical.

The frees against Angus and Lewis were egregious errors and the umpire involved should serve a four week penalty and attend rule revision classes for 6 months. Where was the protection to the head? How else does a player on the ground attack the ball? The dork against Lewis seemed to fall over himself, not Lewis. Disgraceful and Shocking Hocking should lose his job if this is not fixed immediately.

Carey, Ling and Richo on tv all condemned the interpretation of the rule and stated that it should be examined. Could not agree more.

Hopefully last nights umps have been told to take the rest of the year off.

They deserve a rest.

Well the ones tonight are no better..worst umpiring in a final series I can remember.

that's what you get with semi-professional umpiring in a fully professional sport

these guys are way behind the times

afl's solution is to add more second rate umpires which just creates more second rate decisions

Maybe it is a protest action, a kind of workplace go-slow warning shot against any more daft rule changes?

In which case, #jesuisrazorray
