He said touched play on from watching it this morning. Richo is the one who went with the not 15m.

Absolutely agree with this
Certainly the umpire said something

How on earth is the AFL now saying a mistake was made?
They are ignoring the issue of any umpires call at all?

aFL didn't believe the um
He called touched.
Its fked how the umpires can't speak.
This debate could've been eneded 2 seconds after the siren went.
If the umpire told both captains it was touched.
Nicholls calls play on Touched.
Why didn't he ping Cameron for dropping the ball while been tackled??
aFl didn't believe the umpires ...not touched and was 15 m .... Hence the apology.

That's harsh Craigo, Sarah Jones and Kath Loughnane at Fox are as good a media performers as any in the game.

I happen to be in a very loving relationship with Sarah, although it is a bit one sided.
Yes they are both high quality, er media performers I mean..............

But wasn’t there an obvious audible call from the umpire - even if there was doubt about the specific words?
And I’m sure it sounded like “touched”

Port Adelaide will float back home next week and play another bottom 4 side.
While we continue on playing top 4 contenders every fken week.
Hinkley should get the ass if they don't finish top 4 with that bottom 6 draw they got.
We play the only 5 possible threat over 7 weeks from Port game to Bris game. Then it's cruise mode until return matches v lions in rounds 18 and 19

How the hell wasn’t that a free for a push in the back against May? Dogs defenders were doing it on Friday night. Got penalised once but appears defenders have some license to push forwards in the back at the moment.
Seeing it a lot bulldoze players into a pack or oncoming traffic. Part of the game?

That's how Soldo popped a knee. Players get in the wrong spot behind n can't make the contest so they simply bulldoze into the back of players hoping to push the pack over.
Experts killed off the hands in the back rule n now it's ploughing time.

Naitanui “has been sensational” again. Even though he hasn’t take a single mark yet (again), his 6 kicks and 6 handballs have been awesome.

Even his 18 hit outs have been great - much better than Darcy’s equal 18 hit outs. Pressure acts up to a staggering 12%.

Looks like another AA year coming up for the Big Phoney.

This Eagles result was the biggest moral of the round. But all it does is reinforce the fact that they are flat track bullies who are almost unbeatable at home but will always struggle to beat a half decent side away from the Perth security blanket. They’re quite pathetic really.

The result also reinforces the fact that Freo are still *smile*.

Frockers V St Kiddenme in Tassie. Overturned the result n changed the rules to suit. One other time previously was over a hundred years earlier.
Was that the one where the lights went out; a black-out somehow altered the scores or something? But one or two ... ever ... over how many games/years?

I think my point is safe.

Tokenism they don't have to be any good.

Daisy Pearce is the ONLY female commentator with a real idea about footy,and good at the role.

The rest are filler to placate the perenially outraged brigade.
It’s Daisy Pearce then too be brutally honest no one else.
Let’s not get started on Kelli Underwood.

Lights out was Essendrugs, St Kiddenme night series at Waverly, they finished the game a couple of nights later.

Frockers, St Kiddenme in Tassie was when the Frockers held a one point lead n the maggots failed to hear the final siren until it had been blown several times n St Kiddenme managed to draw the score with a very very late point. AFL held a meeting mid week n over turned the result in the Frockers favour. Ruling was at the time and should always be that the game finishes when the maggot hears the siren and then signals game over. Not game over when the siren blows, that was always just to notify the maggot that time had elapsed and he should therefore signal game over.
Happened years earlier that #Lolnorf beat Colonwood in a night series game ( final I think it was ) with a goal also fairly late after the siren, umpire hadn't heard the siren or signaled game over so the score correctly stood. Despite a heap of whingeing n bleating.

All this fuss n official declarations of incorrect umpires call will do nothing but open a massive can of legal worms in the future. One day if there's a *smile* call right at the death of a Granny, with all the professionalism n money rolling through the comp. Someone will throw down a challenge n with precedents already set by the AFL overriding n changing the result after the fact things will get ugly.

Well that makes them better than the male commentators going on what everyone says on this forum.
