Anyone else sick of this? It takes a couple of forms. 1. Outright lying. Tim Watson in the game against Geelong said that Gieschen admitted it was a 'buddy rule'. Ah, no. Jeff Gieschen - July 26, 2010. "Most players have a bit of a natural arc. There's not too many who run directly to the man standing the mark and go straight over his head." 2. Confusion with players who have just outright played on Story: Herald Sun - by Mike Sheahan SO Jeff Gieschen has decreed Hayden Ballantyne's kick for goal in Perth on Sunday night illegal. It is a determination that threatens to come back to haunt him. Well it's not because they're not the same. Ballantyne ran completely off his mark, just as Franklin did in NAB 1 against Melbourne. It's an umpire error, not an error in the rulebook. And now for some reason there is no arc allowed when kicking after a siren. . . Can anyone explain why this is? If an arc isn't play on before the siren, then why is it play on after the siren?
