Brendon Gale on Bachar,

“I’d be very surprised, I’d be extremely surprised if Bachar wasn’t playing with us next year.
He’s got a strong position in our team now, he’s got a strong future at our club. We established the Bachar Houli Foundation which will be located at Punt Road.
His contribution to our club now and his legacy after is something we need to protect.”

Boom.

Without talking it up, I've spent a lot of my life working overseas, and most people of the Middle East and those who practice true Islam are the most friendly generous giving folk i've ever encountered. Them and the Sikhs of India. Really proud to have Bachar at the club, he's a gentleman of the highest order.

Yeah, Islam isn't the evil religion the MAGA crowd think it is. Malays and Indonesians, both predominantly Muslim races, are also very friendly, generous and welcoming.

I went ape droppings at that call! It was definitely 18 - 20m.

yep. was right in front of me. 20m +/- 2m.

The excuse 'its a difficult game to umpire' doesn't apply to this rule.

20m has always been 5m more than 15 metres

and any professional who deals in distance and territory, who cant estimate distance within a 25% margin of error,

shouldn't be in the job

Yep. The inconsistencies in the 50 metre penalties dished out are also appalling.

Ditto my experiences also, Arty
Bachar will be a gun against Port.

if they just got rid of some of the crap, marginal rules maybe the umps would be left with enough processing power to concentrate on the rules at the heart of the game. Men are notoriously bad at multi tasking they recon

"As long as there's a contract there, an offer, I won't be going anywhere else to be quite honest," he said.

"I've got something far greater than just a playing contract at the football club and that's the foundation and the work we've done together with Richmond Football Club and the AFL to establish the foundation.

"Hopefully there's a contract post-Grand Final, maybe before the Grand Final, but it's been a funny year. I'm going to wait patiently and hopefully there's an offer there in the short-term."


We are honestly blessed to have a bloke like this at our footy club.
