Given that none of the feral crowd, players or umpires picked up on it, I'm going with it being an optical illusion. 

Mate I was on the hill and went full feral when he kicked it!! Was very quiet around me for some reason...

Q: “Did you know Tom McDonald could go forward and actually kick goals?” BERNIE: “Well, the goals he kicked were floaters and that’s actually all he kicks, so I’m not sure how they floated through.

#Freak.

Neville Jetta. Kept Eddie Betts to just two goals and nine touches. I'm still convinced he'd be talked up as an All Australian if he played for Hawthorn or Geelong.

Yep it looks strange the slow mo, but the camera behind the goals shows it's a clear goal no way it hit the post 

When a video is recorded using Slow Motion, frames are "dropped" not shown. 

Normal speed is 25 frames per sec

so it is quite possible that a frame jump was shown. 

The Video review system as it stands now is very cheap and nasty

the need 4-5k Cameras

it's not as if they couldn't afford them

Yeah, KB saying it hit the post twice ?? So it's not in his mind goal of the week .... WTF

watching the game on Tv and hearing commentary there was no suggestion that it clipped the post 

me thinks sour grapes from tigerland

I sent a text into sen to tell KB to stop bagging Olivers goal and it was read out too but the little f ockers censored what I sent in. Not happy about that but at least they read it out.

Eggzactly. Considering when you watch sports like the F1 for example, the cameras can show rubber on the track tossed up by tires at 300kph in perfect slow motion. You would think a football traveling at 25kph or thereabouts, through a set of stationary white posts, wouldnt be the most technical R&D challenge in the world. Perhaps they could apply for funding.

I'll probably be pilloried, but I don't think any goals from the boundary should be goal of the year unless something spectacular was done to win possession and get the kick away.  They are generally just flukes - kick it 100 times and one will go through -  that one shoudln't get goal of the year.    I'd rather a goal from dead in front that results from some spectacular difficult play than most kicks from the boundary.  That said, there was more to Oliver's goal than just a kick from the boundary.

Well I've again reviewed the video tape.
As it only looks like it hit the post in the slow mo replay I reckon Daisycutter's on the money.

You right actually. I was concentrating on the slo mo......in which it seems the ball speeds up, like it ricocheted off the post. But in the real time footage this is not the case. Well spotted.

It must be my day I just sent another text to sen and suggested Bernie Vince should have jumper punched the ump (cause he would have got a fine anyway) and the ox just said it on sen but he didn't say it was from a text. 

The stealing little bugger.

Bernie gets a $1,000 fine for a blindsided hit with the umpire - deemed 'careless contact'.

Guthrie gets off for pushing the umpire out of the way and he gets off - deemed "It was the view of the panel the contact was not unreasonable in the circumstances"

Can't agree at all.

He took the ball in play and purposefully ( very ) kicked it straight at the goals.

That you might' consider it a fluke or question its relative probably is either irrelevant or some might argue weight worth acknowledging in relation to the result.

Your converse ideal is actually what you describe " a piece of play" that might end in a deserving goal. If it was a continuous action it might indeed be worthy of goty. If a kick independent then its just a kick, its merits are its own.

Honestly, I thought Bernie was always going to cop a fine for that.

But the fact that Guthrie, who literally pushed the umpire out his way with force gets nothing, is an absolute farce.

MRP is cooked, something needs to be done about it! The Ox in disbelief on SEN in regards to Cotchin's jumper punch which was deemed careless. He incurs the same penalty as Bernie for accidentally colliding with an ump. I'm lost for words!

Isnt the rule that it is the players responsiblity to avoid the umpire? There was a spate of umpires being crashed into at bounces a few years ago so they changed the rule, of course unless they changed it again.

Correct which is why it isn't surprising Bernie got a fine even tho he was blindsided and it was the umpires fault.

The problem is Guthrie literally manhandled the umpire and deliberately pushed him out of the way but was cleared. 

The inconsistency of interpretation is the issue. 

Which is what riles me as our players seem to get the raw deal more often than not.

Clean sweep of the coaches votes!

  • 10  Viney
  • 8  Hibberd
  • 5  Oliver
  • 5  Petracca
  • 2  Vince

That is a seriously dominant performance by our midfield (and Hibberd). 

Well done guys.

Btw Oliver is now 3rd on the leaderboard with 36 votes, to Sloane (42) and Yeo (43), leading such luminaries as Ablett, Bontempelli, Selwood and on it goes.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date.
