I still can't get an answer - did the guy who was deemed to have touched it protest that he did?  It is (conveniently) absent from the footage.

The Carlton player does signal, not immediately, only after he looks to see the ball is going through. As every player does now.

The ARC footage is shown as the broadcast footage, that’s the point of the script: “looking at this angle…”

There isn’t some other magical angle where you can see this non-existent touch.

It’s clear there isn’t sufficient evidence and likely it wasn’t touched at all.

The problem is that we roll over, other clubs do not.

Whether it was touched or not, I still don't know how they came to the 100% definitive decision to overturn as the ball was going back to the centre. 

Isn’t it rather ironic. Playing the same team only weeks ago was the catalyst to put a focus on ARC reviews and being definitive on these calls in finals.

Surely the true irony is that in the case of Petracca in Round 22 the goal umpire’s decision that he thought it was touched stood because the vision was not definitive while in the ANB case the goal was overruled even though the vision was again not definitive?

The Adelaide goal that was misjudged a point by the goal umpire? Nothing to do with ARC.

The goal umpire who was stood down?

The AFL who apologised and confirmed the error, Gil made statements about fixing the system?

The Adelaide goal that was written about in every major and minor press?

Yeah… No.

Meanwhile the club did nothing……

Richmond last year when knocked out of the finals by a bad call……..nudda……not a peep

In fact I’m struggling to think of one club who has kicked up a fuss with the AFL over ARC…..

You’re living on a different planet.

Re. Adelaide, given that was your first example :

"It's inexplicable they didn't call for a review" said Crows Chairman, John Olsen. "The field umpire then also didn't call for a review of the decision". 

Olsen told Nikolai & Stacey, "A lot's got to be played out here yet".

It's just one giant franchise run,  overseen and massaged/directed by the AFL circus masters i'm afraid.

Anything goes as long as the AFL believes it will further their desire for a close competition with the big clubs taking the lion's share of the limelight and the spoils / silverware.

All the clubs are now in on the act and the players complicate.

The franchisees are hardly going to take on the franchisor if they don't like something.  They just suck it up as they're all on the gravy train.

No club is going to go out of its way to upset HQ when it controls the purse strings, the fixture, the head of the MRO etc.

And by Monday they’d decided to nothing…..it’s hardly a club putting it up to the AFL……c’mon mate, clubs don’t take on the Fat Controller

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
