I've never been one for umpire bashing ... but there is little doubt that the standard of umpiring at AFL level is deteriorating.
It seems that umpiring across the footy community is in decline.
No wonder the AFl is wanting to get tougher on transgressions against/on umpires.
The level of abuse across footy competitions is getting beyond a pale.
No wonder people are shunning the idea of donning the whites and blowing a whistle. Not worth the grief that comes with it.

Got to feel for the umpires. Shocking has changed the fabric of the game with his continual rule changes.

Probably the hardest game in the world to umpire/adjudicate. It's one of the reasons I cut umpires a fair bit of slack. But that said, some of the rules/decisions they have to judge and make a decision on in a split second just aren't necessary to be part of their umpiring mandate.
The game is becoming far too complicated.
It's just *smile*' footy.

I wonder if there's a correlation between tackles laid, contested number or similar that we can benchmark against other similar players. The disparity is extraordinary.

I heard Danger was raising concerns around the quality of the umpiring? Not sure if that is correct AFL news is slow to UAE. If so I'd be sticking my head in if I was him. He may not get away with the throws and flops this weekend.

Hope it's all going well in UAE, snags

They should be full time professionals getting paid good money. We're one of the only professional competitions in the world where the umps/refs are part timers. Pay them well then you'll have people queuing up for a job and you can pick the best and develop them through properly funded academies. This way you can delist the duds and bring in replacements every year like the players. The AFL *smile* money up the wall yet pay peanuts for umpires which is one of the biggest areas of the game that needs improving.

All good buddy. Summer is gone so we can expect perfect weather for the next 6 months down from a hellish average of 45degC. We didn't peak much over 50 this year which is good. Missing home but with covid it doesn't look like it will be easy to get back there in the next 6 months. It's been over 2 years already.

Also simplify/consolidate the rules and clarify interpretations so they don't change week to week. How do you train your muscle to instinctively make calls when the rules are constantly being tweaked. It must be a nightmare for them. Also it would be nice if the umpire dept was accessible with the weekend's decisions discussed in an open manner.

Good to hear, snags.
You MUST be looking forward to the cooler weather.
Not sure how you can stand plus forty degrees on a daily basis. Would fry my brain.
Hope you can get back home sooner than you think/expect.
Good luck with everything.
