It wasn't 50/50 because she tried to stop and was turned back inside then went over the line. It was a harsh call, yes, but if she hadn't done that pause moment and had kept moving at full pace over the line it would have been more likely paid as a point. The rule was quoted by Shiloh and it was the right call. So many people who follow, play and commentate on footy actually haven't read the rules.

I thought looking at the replay it was a wrong decision, but the umps don’t get the same armchair benefit of watching a replay. It must be tough umpiring scrappy football

At 55 seconds you can see , while she was unbalanced , there was no pressure . ie the fans are stupid
Secondly with 30 seconds left I find it difficult to see how Geelong get it to the other end
Thirdly if the umpire allows the point any goal by Geelong still means its a draw

The deliberate rushed behind free kick rule is terrible. I don't know why people are trying to shift the AFL's error here onto the umpires. The umpire enforced the law as written and Adelaide won, good result all round.

I stated that decision was "LOL". Not so much it was an obvious error, but it was more to do with a sudden change of mentality, considering the frees were flowing the Cats way (particularly in the second half), and we should have got plenty of frees for good tackles (opposition players dropping the ball) but no reward/non-calls.

Good result in the end, and the better team (us) shone through. We clearly need to lift our skills though, particularly the kicking and the short handballs if we're going to be a serious threat again this year. Still plenty to look forward to with potential room for improvement and Erin and Scheer hopefully back by the mid-season.

This is going to be an intriguing year with so many potential permutations of the Finals make up.

Of course. The point is that the Geelong player did the wrong thing, running it over to ensure that the best freak result was a draw!
She should have played on, attempting a chain down the ground to win by a point. The umpire was irrelevant.

Nikki, that call against the Geelong player for unnecessarily and deliberately rushing the ball through for a point was 100% correct every day of the week. The nearest Crow player was 15 metres away and she wasn't carried across the line by momentum. she chose to cross the line when not under pressure. Correct call (even if one of the very few for the day).

The worst decisions for the day were those when a player being tackled dropped the ball was not penalised but then got a free kick for hanging on. Geelong received 90% of those decisions

Overall the umpiring was poor with the male umpire in particular being guilty in that respect - he had a shocker.

someone said earlier that apparently Adelaide requested Sunday home games because it was better for families

As a single, 30 something male living in Melbourne with no dependents, I find it rather off putting that the fixture was not designed for me in mind at all
(no games in Melbourne and Adelaide games being on a Sunday = Hard to get to)
Well you shouldn't of sung all Those blues songs premempting social change and the end of white Male privaladge


Anyway, did you notice that one particular umpire in the second half, the controlling umpire, pulled free kicks out of ahat, that benifites the home side. Some of them when the other umpires were closer and in better position. The one late in the late in the last quarter so obvious. It was like that umpire had learnt from Darren goldspink.

He was a master at contests in the center of the ground, where we were off running, he would call us back and give us a free kick called way to late. Penalising us by allowing our opposition to get back.

It was shocking, that controlling ump in the center of the ground.

They showed you a replay from behind the imp who called it. The geelong player Changed direction upon gathering the ball, that direction was towards the goal line and post, when she was heading towards the center of the goals, she could of easily chose to turn away from the goals, but didn't, wasn't under pressure, like she thought she might be, it was very canny the way we held off her.

A copy editor is seriously needed for all the AFC sites. The Match report for our game has this interesting bit in it
"Good luck to the umpires splitting Adelaide pair Ebony Marinoff and Danielle Ponter for the three votes. Marinoff was in everything in the midfield, collecting 2 disposals (17 contested), 12 tackles and 11 clearances – only four less than Geelong combined. Ponter's four goals was ultimately the difference to go with 10 disposals and an equal game-high four marks. "

I knew Ebony was good but to get 17 contested possessions while only having 2 possessions in total is a hell of a feat!

Yep, 100% correct decision but in the context of a 50/50 call in real time. That is, without the benefit of slow motion replays, it could have been a non-call and you won’t get too much argument. Certainly not a blunder of a decision either way, as opposed to obvious decisions which are paid (incorrectly) or non-paid (incorrectly).

I do really like what Siren Sport is doing but their report on our game showed a strong sense of bias in the reporting, especially the last point of the report - https://sirensport.com.au/the-roundup-round-three/

The tackle on Gore was called "baffingly penalised for high contact" Watch the vision, the tackle slips up and gets her in the head. The tackle MUST be legal. It highlighted all three decisions that went our way and two of those were correct decisions. I think a case can be made for the one against Eloise being a bit weird as a trip, but she fully up ended her and could be considered similar to a tunnelling decision. No mentions of all the frees for incorrect disposal that were never paid the cats way.
