Umpiring (Demonland in meltdown)

I respectfully disagree. I reckon it was holding the ball too until I saw his knee dig into the turf. Lucky we didn't get 50 metres playing on thru Langdon and Pickett. 

His knee dug into the turf because he was dropping his knees to draw an in-the-back free.

In the pre match thread I said I was not bullish about the match because of a huge number of variables, including:

- what, if any, impact will the umpires have on the game?

This game was taylormade for them to make an impact and they definitely manufactured this result like a master clay potter.

You don't think 11 to 3 in the first quarter was unreasonable,? Those dob were very soft. That none or our tackles got us a htb decision in the first 3 quarters then it's paid everywhere? That the call of dangerous tackle cost us a goal and the four points?

You should get a job umpiring.

Seriously that was an atrocious effort by the umpires tonight.

It actually put me off the game.

That they could give that many soft frees in the first twenty mins of the game was just silly and uncalled for. About four of them were strong frees and they missed about four of ours. 

Then they stopped giving frees pretty much. Half handed out in one quarter. why?

The game was over at quarter time so I guess they didn't have to do anything else.

A classic case of over umpiring. And yet not for genuine htb. They ignored all of Carlton's incorrect disposal for three quarters for some reason.

Last week we couldn't sneeze without the umps pinging us for htb. 

Yeah, I agree, it was bad in the first half. 

Being an umpire would be a very tough gig and officiating based off interpretation of rules and what they have in front of them in a split second. We don't have a game to watch without them so can't crucify them all.

Anyway, was highlighting the JvR tackle as my interpretation. Many calls and non calls went both ways, as does every game, can't win them all, all the time.

AFL gives explanations but they don't overturn results.

Time for an NFL style coachs challenge IMO

Just one more thing.... Eddy Maguire interviewed the new appointed AFL Head of Umpires. An ex Umpire and police Officer. My father was a decorated Police Officer just to show no bias from me. But you cannot go around espousing to the Football Public what the "NEW" mantra of the umpiring fraternity three nights before a shambles.

It was two words INTEGRITY and IMPARTIALITY, and he repeated it many times in the interview.

Wow.  Umps review should be a long long session after last night.  It was a horror show.  Clearly their positioning or their interpretation is out of sync with the general footy population.  Maybe it’s poor positioning but with 4 umps, that was to be corrected.

Does Demonland ever write to the club? I reckon it has the standing and authority to do so. It would certainly have my support.

Dont know that but my great aunt Beatrice was always writing to the MFC Committee

...and the very person for the job here, I'd say, what? 🧐 Not too late to wheel her out, FaT?

Seriously though, do you / can you ever correspond, as a stakeholder entity, with the Club, @Demonland?

A player is going to get seriously hurt doing exactly that.

They need to fine players to stamp that out. It's very dangerous.

Not so much this one but it sets a precedent for other players to do the same

Appalling clear bias, NB #22 who always screws us, but we did lose it in the first quarter.  

As soon as #22 turns up, you know where not getting any 50/50s it’s like 10 vs 90!

But it wasn’t umpires that cost us the game, it was a combination of Carlton starting hot, playing very well , and the ball falling in their laps in first quarter.

Umpiring was seriously poor but it has no bearing on the game. We win the game 76-41 after giving up a 36-point Head Start. Don't give them the head start and you win by 6 goals and aren't blowing up over the umpiring.

Yes, the umpiring was very average, but if we turned up to play at the start of the game, instead of the 2nd qtr, we wouldn't have this thread.

Totally agree, though furious with that JVR call, this one is on the players.

They weren't up for the contest in the first quarter.

Ye, I think its a dangerous thing to say "if JVR isn't penalised we win the game," we would still be 2 goals down and it negates anything that actually happened after.

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form
