Kudos to old mate Umpire 27 (dangerous tackle Gianfagna) for not penalising Rampe climbing the goalpost and causing it to shake while Myers was kicking his after the siren shot to win the game, apparently a free kick should have been awarded at the top of the goalsquare. :D

The Umpires were probably too scared to pay that free kick after the siren
The crowd of 129 storming the SCG would have been worrying

Couldn't have happened to a more deplorable couple of clubs

I hope they scramble over this for the next week, Gill's already hand waved it off.
A lot of the disrespect for umpires comes from the AFL never admitting they sometimes get it horribly wrong.
