Damien Barrett’s sliding doors piece for the Swans this week has been pinched straight from Big Footy.

If
Longmire ever presented openly about his views on umpires ...
then
Exhibit A would be the 2016 Grand Final. And Exhibit B might be last Saturday's loss to Essendon.

Closest we’ll see to anyone in the media highlighting our ongoing issues with umpires

Could’ve used 2-weeks back as well

Sliding doors and I’m astounded. Barrett has actually laid the boot in re last weeks umpiring, along with 2016 GF. He’s right, show some balls Coach!
Pathetic thing is Barrett had the forum to speak up about it on Sunday on the Footy Show and again on Monday night on Footy Classified and he said nothing. Should have said it the day after and made it an issue. Chose not to.

The joys of recording everything on Foxtel and then watching it back. Don't have to wade through hours of bullshit just to watch the 30 seconds they spend on us. If the shoe had have been on the other foot, it would've been back page news for days.

Oh Mick. You just used the word "journalism" when referring to Damien Barrett!
This. The pantheon of abject hackery is led by Robbo the Slobbo, then there is McGuire. At their heels are BarRat and Hutchy the Jabberer. Unhappily many youngsters with quavering voices, leaky pens and error prone keyboards are into following the money aka the snail trail.

There are still some good sports journos around like Connolly and Jake Niall.

Lethal had Horse as second only to Clarkson as the best coaches currently coaching on the channel 7 Sunday morning afl show, something like that.
