Have the mics been turned way down tonight? Only hearing the umps half the time, which is still half the time too much, but at least it's a start.
With the new Manning the Mark/Stand rules, there is no sport in the world where the fans/ the public has to hear the umpires throughout the whole game.
It's an embarassment to our Code. Dont blame the umps at all. Hocking and the AFL continue to destroy the game.
The effective resignation of Hayden kennedy IMO is not a coincidence. The umpires are thrown under the bus by the AFL. The constant rule changes are an absolute disgrace - no respect for the fans and those like the umps who are a significant and important part of the industry. I feel sorry for them.
