Yeah of coarse it should be questioned at an administration level. We do it every single week on all levels. I just can't go as far as to believe that the AFL would send orders down to the umpiring department to give more free kicks to a certain team to achieve some pre-determined outcome. That's where I draw the line.I do question the integrity of the AFL and the influence the AFL’s heavy’s and it’s Commission in achieving desired outcomes. The non-suspension of Cotchin in the preliminary final or the umpiring in the Bulldogs GF win, the introduction of the NGA to counter the northern academies and numerous other constant revolving issues demonstrate how farcical the AFL is and that’s Integrity should be questioned.
You think that the umpires were actively instructed to fix games the Bulldogs were involved in, and that the guided them with the whistle to a flag?
also with the Cotchin one, that is a total 50/50.. I didn't think he would go at the time. He was in the act of going for the ball, very different to just flattening someone. Could have he been suspended, maybe? is it an indication of AFL conspiracy, absolutely not.
