    The grand final has completely validated 6-6-6

    Melbourne may have put 2 or 3 players behind the ball when they got up in the last quarter to protect the lead under the old rules.

    Buddy Elbow -how many week?

    Buddy throws an elbow and hits another player in the head. Good luck with the corrupt bidding system that gifted top 10 picks.

    The Farce that is the free kick differential number

    Sometimes its a disadvantage. I wish AFL umpires take a leaf out of basketball. In basketball, the referees just let the play go without a call.

    The Farce that is the free kick differential number

    You make a massive point that not all free kicks are equal. Free kick in front of goal when a team doesn’t have possession is very different to a free kick in possession on the centre wing. Also, I would add rewarding marks as well and calling play on. Rewarding marks there is doubt about it...

    Ending congestion

    Simple solutions. 1. 16 a side 2. Umpires throw up the straight away like the 80’s and don’t wait for the rucks. Sure the tall dinosaurs will become extinct but the game would flow. Only 1% of the male population is over 6’6. 3. Same out of bounds rule as the women’s comp. 4. Any holding of a...

    Umpires influencing games: Exhibit 1 Car v Fre

    The farce of deliberate out of bounds

    Umpires need to determine intent when awarding DOB which is highly subjective. Generally speaking the team in front in the last quarter will lose benefit of the doubt. Make it last touch or some other guide lines than intent. We could use the following guild lines. 1. Kick or hand pass or tap...

    Umpires influencing games: Exhibit 1 Car v Fre

    Umpires are just getting too emotional and not doing their next job 1. Taberner taps and free kick is reward to the Blues. 2. Controlling Umpire needs to know where the mark is. 3. Controlling umpire needs to determine if the Ball was legally brought back into play. 4. Controlling umpire...

    Umpires influencing games: Exhibit 1 Car v Fre

    Yes, that’s true. It was countering the argument that Fremantle was gifted two goals which happens in games all the time. Two goals from free kicks and two goals from non free kicks.

    Umpires influencing games: Exhibit 1 Car v Fre

    You were gifted two goals when Cripps throws the ball and Casbolt pushed in the back. Two non calls that ended in goals.

    Except that the ball went over the line way before they set the mark.

    Ben Long hit on Darcy

    Saints fans are the most understanding mob. They are open minded and not bitter. Darcy deserved to be hit the head. Actually, Darcy headbutted Long's hip. Poor Long, Darcy should be charged.
