Alex Rance cleared in actions v LFranklin. Under its guidelines, MRP said any exaggeration of contact was not excessive.

Either Rance is soft, and falls over at the slightest touch, or the AFL guidelines on exaggeration need a overhaul. o_O

What would be excessive then? Franklin to be reported due to Rance's actions? Rance to injure himself due to the severity of the flop?

Genuinely interested as to how they arrive at their findings sometimes.

It was great to listen to Leppich defend the action by saying we don't want anyone staging for free kicks and Lyon shouting, he did get a free kick!

Yeah but if any of us for pushed by a 6 foot 8 guy we would go over that quickly also... ******* great argument that!!!

Just a bit of push and shove.
Too many rules regulations and too much over officiating.

Worst part is when you KNOW the MRP are simply trying to bullshit their way around NOT implemeting their own rules...like excessive exaggeration" or whateva they call it.

If they wont implement it, dont invent it.

Yep agree, just two great players having some fun-no drama at all. Umps should have just gone on with the game.
