I think each one of on here should be emailing the prez and Benny.

Will it achieve anything? No.

Though Something is better than nothing. I will do it today.

If I didn't have the kids with me the other day I would have walked out due to them. They are really putting me off watching full games. Absolute cheats they are .

So did you get a response?

2022 Elimination Final revisited today in the Freo vs Carl game albeit it was the point post.

This time the ARC says "insufficient evidence" and nothing about triangulation. They just make it up as they go along ::).

Don’t worry about that. 4 umpires missed the most obvious touches you will ever see and paid carlton a mark 20m out directly in front. Then to add insult to injury they awarded a free kick from the same spot directly afterward for umpire ‘abuse’.

AFL on a mission this season to get blues a flag it seems.

I don’t know that last goal from the doggies involved one hell of a shove in the back.

Tell me you missed the rest of the game without telling me you missed the rest of the game:

I personally think the score review system hasn't added anything good to the game one iota.

Only has brought more frustration and added to the idiotic circus of controversy and the ridiculousness of being at the ground and waiting for someone in a box looking at several screens to just refer back to the umpires call (except for the Lynch goal).

150 years of goal umpire putting themselves in perfect position and backing in their own judgement and making a bloody decision to now this farcical pantomimic goal square circus we have now.

What a bloody waste of time!

The club that keeps giving.

Agree

 Look at last night

Goal ump last night called for a review.. he said "I think it is a goal, just check?"

Check what? There was no players around to touch it, no where near the post so why the review

The Stengle mark was a shocker by the ARC

A farcical system

What a bunch of lazy corrupt pos. Where was the evidence beyond reasonable doubt against lynch?

I'm not sure who is worse the umpires or the afl. I think they are both as corrupt as each other.

The goal umpires have clearly been instructed to review more often and even when it’s so obvious it’s a joke. How many reviews have we seen for ‘ check that it missed the post’ and it’s missed by 3 metres with the goal umpire right in place.

Another issue… if 4 field umpires don’t call touched off the boot, then they shouldn’t be able to intervene and review it as part of a ‘goal line’ decision. Otherwise, the ARC should be able to review and decide on every missed decision relating to the shot on goal.

Every goal gets checked in the time the ball is being returned to the middle anyway. I don’t know why the umpires and goal umpires feel the need to stop the game while a check is being done for something that so clearly doesn’t need to be reviewed.
