    Make up your own mind. Was kicking the ball into the stands classed as an unsportsmanlike manner?

    After a Mark or Free Kick has been awarded to a Player, a Fifty Metre Penalty will be awarded against the opposing Team which delays or impedes the play, or behaves in an unsportsmanlike manner

    Definitely delays the play and let’s Swans stack the goal square.


    50 IMO.

    I get that, and agree it's frustrating. I just get sick of umpiring being the only topic.

    This is actually a bloody good game between two flawed sides!

    It was a bloody good game, but with that ending, suspect most talk will be about umpiring.


    Personally, not knowing rules, I think that should have been a 50!

    I genuinely don't get the complaining about umpiring in this particular game. They've been okay - not brilliant but not terrible.

    Most of the issues have been with both teams doing stupid, undisciplined things. That Nankervis downfield for instance - what does he possibly expect for collecting a player late, unnecessarily, and two metres away from an umpire looking straight at him? Sydney have given away a four goal swing from crazy fake-tough frees.

    It’s the prohibitive contact frees most seem bothered with

  4. Gil should [censored] off now and take Scott with him.


    Seriously, the umpiring is making this sport hard to watch, that prohibitive contact against Rioli is a joke, not seen anything like the last two rounds.


    That is Scott and Gil’s handiwork, clowns should go

  5. An NT team could have remarkably positive social benefits, the positive local role models, a chance to play top level AFL without leaving home and the inspiration this could provide helping keep kids off the streets and even in school could be massive- making tax spend on team justifiable

    Yes really. I'm interested in why you think a footy team should look for 'payback' in the context of them learning that from Indigenous culture.

    Payback is a genuine thing in indigenous culture 


    we owe north

  7. Yet another example, one of so many, that Gil’s job performance is massively overrated and that his replacement must come from outside of his pathetic cronies.
