    Consistency of rulings

    If the tribunal is to be believed then the reason given for why Naitanui was suspended a few weeks ago, that he should have considered his size compared to the opponent whom he tackled and hurt, should now be similarly adjudicated this week from the Richmond game. Zaharakis must be expecting...

    Why Aren't AFL Umpires Full-Time?

    This question isn't prompted by any current topic or "issue of the week", just something I'm wondering. Surely in the current professional era, it makes sense for the umpires to be full-time, like players, coaches, etc. It would allow them greater time to work on improving their craft, their...

    Petition - Remove the score review system

    Petitioning the AFL to get rid of the score review system all together, there's no need for it especially in light of the ridiculous decisions being made this season. The game flows better, teams maintain their momentum, crowds stay involved and we should just back the umpires in to call it right.

    Umpiring

    I've watched our last game again with particular attention to the officiating. And I feel this is a game that we can put the men in green to the test, as we did win it. All I ask is consistency in the interpretation of our, let's face it loosely written, rules. How many times during the game...

    Is the AFL telling Umpires to favour Brisbane and GC?

    Watched both games so far today. Although Fremantle and Hawthorn weren't great, and perhaps both deserved to lose in many respects, but the umpires have been seriously favouring both Brisbane and Gold Coast. I wonder if it is the individual umpires feeling sorry for them or does it go further...
