Missing you already "where's the free?" Anyway here's my top 10. Pick at it at will. Considering most did the job on their own or with one other, today's umpires wouldn't be fit to tie these guys shoelaces. Apart from Kennedy.
Most times we didn't even know who had umpired because they didn't carry on like they do today. Now we know all three umpries in the game and they all cop a baking.
After number 5 you can put them in any order you want.
No list would be complete without Goldy. Cops a fair bit but come on, the bloke is an absolute gun, gotta love his gutsy attitude, just adds that much more life to the game. Good to see that not all umpires are robots.
Ray Scott in WA, won the goalkicking for West Perth before picking up the whistle.
Memorable for the incident where Subi half back Trevor Williams was knocked out behind the play (John Greening style) by East Freos Mike Regan - Subi CHB of the day Peter Eakins delivered summary justice & Scotty ignored the first dose (a headlock & couple of ripping punches), Eako caught up with Regan again, Scotty didnt report him just wagged a finger, no free, but the 3rd time he awarded a free kick. Regan was taken off & was seen leaving Subi, during the 3rd quarter.

It's been a long time since the AFL/VFL have had any decent umpires. Peter Cameron was the last of the good umpires. Todays bunch are the worst lot I have ever seen and are only getting worse. I can only decide about umpires I've seen.
