The other one that astounded me in that final quarter, how the hell did the arc find sufficient evidence to over rule the goal umpire on that Bont goal???
What was funny when you heard the audio "you can see the ball deviate" really? i couldn't. Do I think it was touched I would say more yes than no, was it conclusive no way, so the goal should've stood.
Was that the one in 2017? Barely touched the Giants player’s fingernail? That would have been Shai’s first goal, too.Same opinion as I have. Was most likely touched, but did the ball deviate in those grainy images? Not from my eye either. I would have been livid if that had been overturned against the Tiges, as bad a call as the one against Shai against the Giants a few years ago which would have won us the game.
We did. Shai’s goal would have given us an unassailable lead with the time remaining. We beat them in the next game at the G, though. That was the game where Astbury threatened to break Toby Greene in half after his cheap shot on Rance.Yep thats the one. We lost by a couple of points from memory.
yep. shows how terrible the rule is - it's clearly not about intent at all.
Just another one for the TBR is right column.
Despite the arguments from those who know less about the game than I've forgotten, the umpire judges the action. Daniels kicks the ball directly at the boundary line with no team mate in the vicinity. That's what he actually did. Free kicks aren't not paid on a we can see what you were trying to do basis.
And people will say no way it was just a skill error. I'd invite them to spend some time watching training and seeing what players are doing before and after it. Watch them kick a few goals from the fifth row of the grandstand or make the footy turn 6 times to get through a door or into a bin and see if you still think it is out of the realm of possibility that a player could deliberately create a miscued kick. And them ask yourself how the hell you would determine which is which.
Listen to Leppitsch calling it, he has been briefed enough times to know how it works.
And they got fingered by the umpires to boot.What the Dogs had to put up with in past 48 hours is unbelievable. For them to win was enormous. Credit where is due . Hopefully this will get reported . Players were denied meals . Processing of players in hotel quarantine took 4 hours which I might add was the shared overseas visitors hotel quarantine. No delivered meals etc . Food at hotel absolutely rubbish .
Did you see him after the game being interviewed. He was clearly pissed off that that was paid against him.
His foot WAS NOT pointing towards the boundary when he went to kick it. In fact his foot wasn't pointing at the boundary even when he kicked it, it skewed off the side of his boot. The bump from Cameron from behind I'm pretty sure was the biggest impact of what caused it.
Leppa called it a skill error on the call.
Ah - my beloved father (2 years gone, just after 2019 Cup) used to call him “Bompatelli”.Any chance Bompmytelly stand up in a game that matters?
It’s actually “Hear Hear” - it means “Listen to him!” or “Hey, everyone should hear this!”May I give a big Here Here to that.
