    Moved Thread Saad kicking for goal

    Waiting for a situation where a player will abuse this rule to the limit. Tight game with the team 3 points in front and 90 seconds remaining on the clock, and the forward marks the ball 35 metres out. He then jogs back another 50 metres to start his run up before the umpire gives him the hurry...

    Reid Free correct - The Giesch

    So why doesn't Giesch come out and explain why 100 marking contests in every game aren't free kicks despite the above rules showing they should be? The muppet can't have it both ways. According to the above, every player who has taken a speccie should have had a free kick paid against them for...

    Game changing free kicks

    Frees should be paid no matter what the time of the game nor the position on the field. However that isn't the way it is. I recollect a year or so ago there was an article which showed that umpires paid less free kick in the last than the first three. You will also notice that they tend to pay...

    Leigh Matthews: contact below the knees only a free when the player slides

    If only they told the rest of the footballing world before the season began, it might have helped. Not coming out with the nuances into the season proper.

    Umpires like fans have no idea about the sliding rule

    There's more chance of aliens landing on the Whitehouse front lawn than Vlad, Bartlett and co. admitting any error. According to the new rule, O'Brien should have got the free kick, but instead got reported. Maybe they should have sanctioned the goal umpire last week who done his ACL for...

    Moved Thread The Slide Rule - The Kommer Incident

    Rule is a sham. Umpires have no idea what to do with it. Barlow kept his feet in the third quarter, and Hibberd slid into him and instead of a free paid to him, Barlow had it paid against him for too high. Then copped a 50 for advising the umpire how he rightfully fcuked up.

    The return of Razor Ray

    He must be totally frustrated at not being able to steal the limelight from the players the last year. Narcissist.

    Chris Judd - How many weeks?

    The same amount of time that Adams is out after surgery to the shoulder that Judd helped cause damage. That's the answer that Carlton fans gave last week for the Wellingham - Simpson incident.

    6 Weeks for Wellingham....

    Such overwhelming evidence you have produced there!

    Leroy Jetta - slow learner?

    Above average but not exactly a genius.

    why do umpires ruin the game

    Accurate post, unfortunately some dills in this thread don't seem to realise this. I'm surprised more hasn't been said of the Hawkins kick for goal that he fluffed and kicked out of bounds on the full which was paid a point. Boundary umpire was sitting on the point post, had the best view and...

    Silly Wellingham

    Wow, I was awaiting your excuse for non citation, and this is the best you can originate? Very, very feeble attempt genius. People's hatred for particular clubs (i.e like OP) doesn't allow for common sense to prevail. Nature of the beast.

    Daisy in trouble ?

    Ah yes, the Hawthorn conspiracies. Should be a novel, then a mini series about it. On the topic, Thomas will get a week.

    Toovey - How many weeks for tunneling?

    Serious question OP. How many pipes did your mum smoke while she was pregnant with you?

    Worst umpiring decision you can remember?

    Jarrad Waite last week when going for mark, gave a sideways karate kick to an oncoming opponent, kicking him in the balls, yet Waite received a free kick even though the opponent didn't impede in any way. That was laughable.

    Ess let down by the men in yellow

    You mean the tactic that when the umpire calls play on, and the guy then shepherds the player on the mark that was given the all clear by the AFL a few years back? Yeah, real illegal that one. :rolleyes: So what you are saying is when Essendon is on the wrong end of the free kick count it is...

    Ess let down by the men in yellow

    This is because morons such as the OP can't see games objectively and only point out examples to support their case as they have no idea otherwise. Remember it is Bigfooty where keyboard heros think they are great judges of the game. Both teams were at the end of poor umpiring decisions today.

    What is the penalty for breaking the sub rule?

    There wasn't any anything written about wearing caps and Jim Stynes wore one on the field one day. The AFL then after the event ruled on it. You could probably do anything once (the first time) before the AFL ban it.

    Hawthorn and Umpires?

    Conspiracy! Better get Mulder and Scully onto the case.

    Shepparding off the Mark - Revisted

    Incorrect. From an article on the AFL website. Only mention of the 5 metres is the ball has to be within 5 metres of the man on the mark for the shepherd to be enacted. You can stand behind the man on the mark as close as possible before play on is called as you are not shepherding or blocking...
