    Sounds like Div 3 footy will be better off without this Redback involved, especially if his incoherent posts are anything to go by. A real halfwit.

    He's actually a really good umpire, fair and entertaining IMO

    He just needs to stay out of scuffles when his son is involved, which I am sure would be hard. Can't have umpires getting involved in altercations.

    Absolutely, can't have someone officiating a match where they can't keep their helicopter response in check. Looks bad on several fronts.

    Not sure if the same guy, but there were posts a while back in relation to some questionable behaviour from umpires from Hinterland. Maybe had something to do with the ban being handed down.

    Having never had Bucko, redbackpride is comfortably the best club umpire I've had and better than most of the official umpires.

    I heard the comment directed at Longy on Friday and it was remarkable how the mood changed. We were getting a pretty good run up until that point which had made Longy understandably 'vocal' then when old mate came out with that 'comment' and realised he probably shouldn't have said it, it was heavily weighed the other way!

    That's life. Div 4 skills, Div 4 umpiring.

    It was certainly a strange night with the umpires. Some rules applied I’m not sure I’ve ever heard of (you can’t kick the ball in after a point if a player is bent over winded inside the 50?), and after the “comment” one umpire certainly seemed to be less inclined to make as many calls in the second half.

    As you say, it’s div 4 so we all know we aren’t getting afl level umpires. We have had a few club umpires this year which haven’t been flash but none of the games we have lost or won have been because of the umps.

    Be interesting if I asked an umpire to “suck me” what colour card I’d get and how many weeks...

    Because it's Friday nite one would think you'd get a half decent umpries.
    Even I could do two games a day apart.
    If you said it to me I'd probably just give you a solid warning.
    Do it again and I would yellow you.
    Having said that I've never pulled a card out yet.
    Have you seen how much paper work is involved.

    Friday night you should have reasonable umps, sometimes bc blokes who are playing Saturday such as uni kids will be happy to do one.

    The best one was when an umpire called play on, then paid 50 for coming into protected area. When the player said 'you called play on' he replied 'yeah, but even if I've called play on you can't come from that angle"

    That's a new one :huh:

    Mate a bloke on his knees and this one.
    Then asking longy to suck him.
    I've played coached and umpired footy for 47 years and that's a new one for me as well.
    We certainly are in a sad state if this is what we are dishing up.
    I feel for the players.
    How could you not give him a spray for that.
    When I was playing I certainly would have received a fine for giving it to him.
    It would have been worth it.

    NP proving he’s got the moves, Carrara knocking of Ipswich and Kedron in last month with a narrow loss to Wynnum the Saints now must be rated a good as chance as any team In division 3

    I've seen all teams play and as I said anyone of the top four could win it.
    Each has thier strengths and weaknesses and good coaching and identification early in the game would go a long way to winning.
    All sides have two or three key players and shutting them down would be a priority of mine.
    Then hopefully your next tier players stand up.
    Its a waiting game untill finals and I'm sure all would be working on thier game plan.
    Well that's my opinion but others may have a different idea.

    top three level on points, one game between top and 5th. Very even top 5, will be interesting second half of season with only a final 4

    Just a quick look at the draw and Redcliffe probably drop next two and the four will be set.

    id like to know what strengths you think Carrara and the eagles have. Carrara will be broke by the end of the year if they are not already and the eagles will be looking for a new coach

    Eagles will drop their second in a row this weekend I'm guessing you mean dropping their 2nd win against the chooks by over 20 goals this season

    They have Moorooka Pine and hinterland for there next three.
    Two at home.
    If your right you will go down as the greatest tipstar in history.
    Now as for strengths and weekness.
    I'll leave that up to others to work out.
    Don't want to make it too easy for everyone.
