Umpire farce - Getting worse by the minute!

This bloke on twitter is very level headed. Too level headed for my liking :). He puts up these ump decision schedules. It's a good baseline to start arguments with. What it doesn't pickup is the 50:50 or 60:40 decisions that go one way all night. For instance he's missing 01:15 McCarthy elbowed in the head before taking the defender to the ground. Should've been a free kick 10 out.

Hawkins clear push rewarded with the mark. Now it seems that he injured May. F…g cheat
Bet the officials miss the perfect spoiling head clout technique late in the game as well. Sniping dog of a player n not much sweeter in footy than seeing Tommyhawk, Duckwood n Clench inching ever closer to retirement with another year of miserable finals failure to smooth the pathway.

Its not the free kicks we give away its the ones that we never get but clubs like Footscary and Brisbane get them every single time.
Im not shocked with the bottom 4.
I would've expected Essendon closer to us but GWS get reamed too.

Don't Boo! It is hurtful to the inept and corrupt.

It's all in our head.
TBR's looked at every free kick and noted nothing extraordinary. He has determined that the umpires do a good job.

My take on it is that if the entire squad of umpires were mown down by a rampant steam roller and were replaced by the umps from any bush league across the nation the standard of umpiring would improve. Significantly.
