Agree she’s had a nightmare but it’s an assumption that she’s getting games because the afl want to champion diversity. If that is the case I agree it’s not healthy for supporters like us
There’s no doubt that she’s only getting a game because her name is Eleni & not Eric.

Yeah, I think she should do her time like everyone else or you risk actually stigmatising female umpires. People saying it's casual sexism to criticise her because she's a women are casually sexist more than people pointing out her flaws as an umpire.
Never used the word sexist. Just think she’s easy to judge and given how ready people are to forget the other **** umpires today I’ve seen nothing telling me I’m wrong.

On the other hand can’t argue she wasn’t bad today so there it is. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

Agree man but there is a post on this ******* feed comparing her to hitler and Jack the Ripper. There’s another calling for a black dwarf to replace her. I got on here to celebrate a win and bemone umpires and I’m reading this bulls**t casual sexism. It’s not cool. Let’s try this experiment. I’ll type the word “campaigner” in this post and we’ll see if I get banned by the mod before the post comparing Elani to hitler
Sorry my black gay midget was tongue in cheek . Black humour .

Can't post in the trade thread because of old mate precious George, but anyone thinking brad hill is going to solve our problems is on another planet, let alone giving up any pick before pick 15 or so for this front runner has no clue

She’s just easy to see. It’s no surprise all the umpires we think are bad are the ones we recognise - mainly Eleni and Ray.

I think Eleni was alright early but her second half was shocking. In saying so, she’s had plenty of friends throughout the season, and in this match too. How about the ump who kept signalling the wrong way?

I do believe she was a politically correct appointment, but if the afl feel they have to do something like that it is absolutely imperative that they ensure she is up to afl standard first before letting her umpire these games. They’ve actually done her no favours at all - in fact I think it’s backfired fairly spectacularly.

Get over yourself. Six pages derailing threads and I was happy to revoke it for you but your silly comment wasn't surprising.
