If a Field umpire makes a silly mistake and gives a fifty for a certain goal, we bleat for a while, then move on...
Why are goal umpires not allowed to make an occasional error?
Ditch the arc and we will all watch in anticipation for the double hand signal and rejoice like we used to. Right when it happens.
Waiting for peanuts to adjudicate with dodgy inconclusive technology adds an unnecessary anti-climactic and ugly layer to our game.

Easy solved ….just have 50 metre high posts :LOL:
Too much flex in a breeze, you'd have the goal posts flappin about trying to swat the footy like it was some kind of large dunny budgie goin past.

Just use the Goal umpire...it's traditional!

Because people are sooks and the moment a mistake is made it will be bleated about for days with the constant carping about a 'professional competition' and 'what if it costs someone a Grand Final one day?'.
