Adopting my MFCSS hat I could say every new ruling always seems to go against us, Moloney weeks for non contact, Trengove 4 weeks for a sling tackle, where victim best on ground next week, Kozzie 2 weeks for a high bump with no injury and victim laughing, Sparrow sling where victim's head didn't contact the ground, etc, etc, etc. I am sure you can all come up with countless more examples.

Don't forget changing the ruck rules so Jeff White couldn't get his run up

Because it wasn’t given a goal there was no time to review. Game had restarted 

What’s to stop this happening again?! It’s absolutely outrageous. The goal umpire on this occasion was stood down; cold comfort for Adelaide.

Frame by frame, zoomed in, I’d have to say not touched.

Doesn’t matter to me in regards to the result, we lost for many other reasons.
But I do care there isn’t the kind of aggressive pushback that would happen if this was a different club. That’s twice in a month (against the same team) that we’ve lost by less than a goal and ARC has made a critical decision against, with questionable evidence. Zero discussion in the media.

Would this happen to Carlton or to Collingwood?

That's the bit that drives me insane.

I understand the media won't highlight it but what about our president speaking out.

There's so many examples of unfair treatment and rule tweaks, MRO decisions to our disadvantage yet you never hear boo from us.

We're way too nice.  

I think that's part of the reason they're comfortable in doing it.

As much as I dislike Maguire, he would not let these inconsistencies, (including Kozzies suspension for Cripps hitting the back of his head) stand.

I would love to see ump 22's for and against frees for us and in particular those paid against us in our defensive 50.

Maybe it's not a conspiracy (I think it probably is to have a pies vs blues granny) but this club is too soft in just copping it.

I knew as soon as that bloke was appointed to umpire a major final that these type of things were just going to make it a little harder for us on the night. He is rubbish.

it was a horror call. the process is stuffed and will be changed going forward i'm sure, but at the time the ARC followed their protocol correctly.

They should just give a goal as benefit of the doubt and change it if wrong. 

Will bug the hell out of us fans every time they go back to the middle after we've all celebrated but it least it will be right.

none of the footage shown on the 7 telecast shows conclusively that it was touched.

For them to overrule on that basis is unbelievable.

Two games we have been dudded and 7 times Carlton have received the benefit of the review in the past 4 games.

The AFL is corrupt to the core.

 

Cripps didn't even have a concussion test until after the game. Nor did Weitering yet he was staggering around like a drunk

Someone stated in the game day thread early on after a couple soft decisions that the "Fix was in."
As the game wore on the the more obvious it become.
Especially in the last.

But at the end of the day, we forked up.
The game shouldn't have even been close.
Like boxing, if ya KO your opponent the crooked judges are taken out of the equation.

No  definite evidence in that footage  that was  enough to overturn the soft call .

Carlton are so lucky so often with adjudications that it really makes you wonder how.

Lucky, or blessed ??  ARC.  MRO.  Tribunal.  Appeals Board.  And some may be lead to believe that there is a corrupt conspiracy?

In super slow mo frame by frame and blown up very close it looks touched for mine.

I can rest easy on this one at least

The more I look the less evidence for a touch there is.  

Missing is video of any reaction or 'appeal' that it was touched, probably because it wasn't.  Probably that is why such a short, single angled clip was shown.

The Carlton guy's fingers actually flexed, not extended.  From that angle there is not 100%  certainty (which is what is - supposedly - required) that it was touched at all, so the original call should stand.

Some may be lead to believe that there is a corrupt conspiracy.

A Carlton Collingwood GF would be wonderful for AFL marketing.

I've reminded people before the AFL is a business posing as a competition.
And in the AFL business the best way to boost profits and therefor trigger various executive bonuses is to have the biggest clubs not only winning, but winning finals.

I hate to say it but the ARC call saved the game for Carlton. It was touched and it was adjudicated properly. The uproar if it was later found to be touched and not called would have been merited and shown greater incompetence by the AFL.

Don't waste your energy on this. Plenty of other things to be discontent with that we can address in the off season.

I’m not sure the ARC call saved the game for Carlton, we proved an impressive capacity for capitulating under pressure.

But to say this was adjudicated correctly and definitively touched is wrong. The ARC footage is locked to the broadcast and when they say “looking at this angle” the footage is in context. I don’t see any touch on the ball.

Extreme to callback a goal, the uproar should be now. But it wasn’t in Q4. And it was Melbourne.

on the footage above, and watching in slo-mo and frame by frame

i see no finger bending

i see no ball deviation

i can't therefore see any conclusive evidence to overturn all umpires decisions, who didn't even refer it to arc

very surprised the press hasn't picked up on it

cost the game????

They clearly had conclusive evidence that wasn't available for the broadcaster to show the viewers.

Doesn't the broadcaster provide the footage to the ARC though?

As if they would say anything that strays from the Carlton Collingwood narrative the AFL wants them focused on.

If there was any doubt it would be in the headlines and Melbourne FC would have made sure of that. Especially because it was overturned.

well i would just like to see any footage that conclusively shows a touch. enough to overide a hard call by all umps.

i'm open-minded. just want to see the proof.

the so-called proof video (shown above) provided by the mro (supposedly) is simply not conclusive.

I’ve watched it. I see a slight flick of the wedding ring finger. It’s minor but it’s there. Easier to see if you manually scrub back and forth.

I’m sure many club personnel have seen this and would be looking at it much more forensically than i, so if they are not making noise, then I’m happy with that.

I'd like the club to make less noise in general and just get on with it.
I don't wanna hear what they wanna do.
I just wanna see them do it.
Cause what they're sayin' and what they're doin' are different things.

Some of the confusion stems from the evidence presented by Ch7 at half-time. Evidence that was flawed. I can’t upload the clip but in the first still below, the 3rd/4th fingers of Kemp’s bandaged left hand appear to touch the ball and, trust me, they did seem to wobble. Ch7 went back and forward in slowmo on this and I was taken in and posted as such on the matchday thread. (Ignore the hands at the top btw, they’re Hewett’s but he’s actually 2m from the ball.)

IMG_4171.thumb.jpeg.975383c73b4a0a9543f3eb0ab6175ae9.jpeg

Shameful smoke and mirrors by Ch7 as the next shot reveals. His left hand was actually nowhere near the ball.

IMG_4163.thumb.jpeg.ad625e0c1b8b7086229a3db02bea71c8.jpeg

Indeed, the goal was overturned by ARC because it “was touched by the right hand of the Carlton defender” (although I’d argue this was inconclusive so it should have stood as a goal).  

Begs the question though, why did Channel 7 present seriously flawed evidence at HT to support the ‘touched’ narrative?

Great analysis.

That left hand footage might be where some on here have been convinced. Smoke and mirrors absolutely.

Because the footage below, which was what ARC used, doesn’t show a touch. Inconclusive, at best.

I’ve watched it, scrubbed and zoomed. Not there. Not touched.

Who at the club do you expect to hear from? The president? I don’t hear much from her at all.

Whereas Collingwood or Hawthorn in their window, I know you would.

This is precisely the problem, a winning culture. Can not accept less so easily.

Cripps nose was bleeding the whole last quarter and no blood rule.

Max was booted off by an overzealous umpire, for a spot of blood on his lip at Geelong, in the last few minutes of a game and with no ruckman, the Cats scored from the stoppage and won the game.

7 Carlton frees to 1 for us in the last quarter of a tight semi final, yeah officials have no influence on games.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
