Bit late but did anyone see the abysmal decision against McGovern?

Umpiring is becoming the most dire element of the game. Some of its them but most of it is the interpretations.

Worst decision of the year. Everything about it was wrong.

Not watching the game but if you guys have watched the last couple of North games and both call out the decision against McGovern then it must have been a shocker.

I will check on the AFL Website for their videos that highlight the turning points in games. Maybe they've already posted it. I'll go check....

Terrible.

OK, I've seen it now as well. The umpire was #28 (Dore). I have to agree, it was an absolute cock-up of a decision. The Melbourne player #6 ran through the mark so the 50 ought to have been to McGovern - not even questionable. In fact, #25 is also in the protected zone or very close to it. For reference, Petracca is the man on the mark.

Then, instead of paying 50, the ump called play on. That is simply 100% wrong.

To add insult to injury, the commentator prattled on about a "bit of confusion" then ranted about how good is Petracca.

That is AFL Umpiring Hall of Fame stuff. Umpire #28, Cameron Dore, come on down.

Appalling SOS. But we know how it works when 1 plays 18 and the " STARS " are involved.

I don’t understand how a midfield of Kelly, Taranto, Green, Coniglio and Ward isn’t more competitive. I’ve always said L.Cameron was a garbage coach, but with the talent on GWS list they should easily be in the 8.

Easily the most disappointing team in the comp considering the talent at their disposal.

I've always thought that apart from a shabby coach they've also suffered from a lack of team first players. Too many blokes that play the game to raise their own value rather than to help the team win.

******* umpiring. That new rule is to blame for a lot of poor umpire performance.

With lack of any players being able to in some way hold umpires to account, by way of complaining and just generally arguing that they have made a mistake, umpires just now have no real accountability anywhere during a match.

No accountability always ends up with poor performance. ALWAYS. This one rule is making the umpiring of our game get worse and worse because the umpires don't have to care about getting it right because they are protected like 5 year old children in a ******* kindergarten.

Something needs to change.

As much as I don’t like the interpretation of the dissent rule this post is utter tripe.

Umpires were never accountable to players during a match though? And while the players can't remonstrate the crowd will more than make up for it still if there's a howler.

Just on umpiring and the dissent rule, on the weekend I saw Larkey get a free against for dissent after he wasn’t paid a mark. First time I’ve seen a free paid for dissent based on a non-decision. Has this been happening a lot, or one out of the bag? Previously only seen 50s paid for dissent after a decision had already been made.

I have a few times for non-decisions, mostly at stoppages, but it’s definitely rare for sure.

It’s like watching that same 5 year old kid draw all over your walls with texta and having to stand back and say great artwork there little Johnny :)
