I don't know for sure that's why i said 'probably'. 

But the ump wouldn't have known for sure either.

Was a split second situation.  Benefit of the doubt surely goes to the initial beneficiary which was the original call and ball is returned back to the Tigers to take their free.

In soccer the ref often waits a few seconds to see how the play unfolds first to see if there is actually any advantage to the free kick recipient (in a team sense) before allowing the game to continue on or calling it back.  I don't see why we can't do the same rather than just saying "advantage" as soon as it looks like a player 'may have' decided to play on.  Even if he does, whether it's an advantage or not should not rest with the player....the ultimate call should remain with the ump IMV.

Fair call mate. Tough call

 I do think baker took it and few seconds went by. Soccer handles the advantage rule a lot better. Footy to me seems inconsistent. Sometime they pay advantage and call it back which is crazy. Either pay it or don’t

Richmond were never as good as their late season wins suggested. A fixture filled with non-finalists.

Neither of these sides can defend, which meant neither of them were a legitimate flag threat. But because they played each other this week, one of them had to win.

Richmond will be kicking themselves that they couldn't beat an out of form known finals choker missing Rayner, Answerth, Adams, Lyons and McInerney after 3 minutes.

The ARC review probably led to the correct call overall (was probably a behind given everyone's reactions), but once the umpire called it a goal, even if that was the wrong initial call, the video evidence surely wasn't enough to be conclusive.

However, I'm not sure that was a free against Daniher moments earlier for the push in the back. Looked to be a legitimate marking attempt from him. 

100% agree on every count.

We will never get answers while the system is the way it is. Either invest in it and get it right or not. I feel like we've been saying for ages to get 4K cameras. 

Get off your a*** and do something about it because this is doing all our heads in.

It's a cultural respect thing re the passing of M.R. Snr., WCFC had a press release saying that he should be referred to as such.

Thanks for the explanation. Much more helpful than the smart ar#e response of another poster.

Sounds too good to be true...

A movie made with an iPhone can win an academy award, surely figuring out how to use a Samsung to capture goals can't be that difficult. Alternative is to put in longer goal posts when Lynch is playing.

I feel ya

Nothing to be nervous about. We've been waiting for finals since the end of Round 10 and have been building nicely.

Swans are an honest team who won't roll over for us, but I expect a clinical win of between 20-35 points as we start the flex our muscle with our superior finals game.

Whilst the game was high scoring and some great goals were kicked I thought overall the skill level was low. Richmond have had their time at the top and are now in decline. Full credit to the Lions, I didn’t tip them and don’t rate them as a threat and last night did nothing to change my view.

I thought that was a great start to the finals 

An entertaining game between 2 teams with no chance of winning the flag, a dodgy goal ump call followed by a dodgy review ending in a heart breaking loss for Richmond

No more Lynch, the Nank, Cotchin, Hardwick and the Tiger Army. So dislikeable

All is well with the world

Revolt kicked a goal @ 14min mark last qtr and clearly a goal but BT said they should review it.  Luke Hodge said they review ALL goals. Love it when commentators correct BT on live TV. Daisy is very good at that. BT quiet after that. Haha Not for long though. Cannot stand that guy.

Aah how good is it waking up knowing Richmond's out of the finals. If only we could find a way to get Collingwood out just as quickly

Sadly we cannot have both Geelong and Collingwood out in straight sets this year.

I legitimately think someone in the front row behind the goals could have taken a better angle video with their phone than any of the ones they used in the review.

Maybe we could stop the game for 10 minutes while we wait for everyone in the crowd to send in their videos! It could be like fans at home calling a rules infraction in golf.

Obviously the ARC reviewer thought there was "conclusive" evidence to say that it was a behind. Otherwise they would have said "umpires call".

They also probably have clearer and more accurate video in their centre than what is relayed back to your television, even if it is HD.

If we lost a final based on an ARC umpire guessing I would be filthy

this a professional sport FFS

Not sure it was guessed. AFL would have evidence of overturn, as they did.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
