As long as Anderson and co have noone to reign them in on their interpretations and rule changes then the adjudicating on match day will get worse and worse. Standards are slumping b/c the rules get changed all to frequently and the umpires themselves have NFI most of the time. We can blame the umps all we want as they are the ones making the match day decisions but we should start at the top first and blame AA and AD.

Well said Tucky  :clapping

They just had another shocker like the Jacko one in the Swans-Hawks game paid against Barry Hall. A massive 50 too. It's a joke of a rule that something so soft and irrelevant to the play is paid not only a free but also 50m which costs goals. Only an idiot could think of such a rule change and Adrian Anderson is that idiot  :banghead.

It's all a joke especially since Adrian Anderson has never played the game at the highest level. Its lawyers in high profile position causing mayhem madness and confusion.

I hope Before the Game next week gives Tool of the Week to that umpire in the Swans-Hawk game who told the Swans' player who was ready for the kick-in to put the ball he had back in the bag and grab another one. It wasted a whole minute over nothing ???. The Swans' player who couldn't believe what the ump was making him do went over to the bag behind the goal, put the ball in one-handed and then grabbed the same footy back out of the bag :lol. Good on him  :clapping.

That one against Jackson was complete bs, he was halfyway in the tackle when disposal was made.  Nothing in Jacksons tackle at all, stop stuffing with the game leave the rules alone, all it does is leave crappy rules and crappier interpretation.  :banghead

well you can blame those 2 idiots in KB and the Fatfu.. Geesh for todays game and any rule change that goes on

Tigers won the free kick count the cats won the game.

A LOSS IS A LOSS. whether its 85 points or 20.

not good enough richmond. They are mentally weak to let them win.

Tigers opposed to new penalty
Jake Niall | April 5, 2009

RICHMOND, unhappy with the new rule that mandates a 50-metre penalty when a player is "taken out" of play, will seek a second audience with the umpiring department after yesterday's loss to the Cats.

Coach Terry Wallace said the Tigers had been opposed to the new rule, which is supposed to stop players who dispose of the ball being slung and taken out of the action, and would seek clarification this week.

While the Tigers would not comment on specifics, they were the victim of the rule at an important moment in the third quarter when Daniel Jackson interfered with Joel Corey, resulting in a 50-metre penalty and goal. Just moments earlier, the Tigers had been on the receiving end of a "double goal" when Luke McGuane was penalised after punching the ball into the crowd, resulting in a shot from the goal line immediately after a goal.

"Each of the clubs were asked whether they wanted the rule brought in or they didn't want the rule brought in," Wallace said. "We had had a look at it in all games over the NAB Cup and thought that there were just too many variants in what was going on," said Wallace.

"Brian Royal spoke to Jeff Gieschen again, and we spoke to our playing group about it again on Friday.

"We'll be going back to the umpires department for interpretation. We'll just keep working with the umpires department till we've got a greater understanding."

They showed the Jacko one on Before the Game. So you're now meant to stop a tackle halfway through  ???.

Apologies to Kel. It was Luke who punched the ball away behind the goal. Very silly brain fade.
Yeah stupid thing to do but is worth another goal? They have a pile of footys sitting in a bag behind the goals so it is hardly time wasting and you have to wait for the ads to finnish on tv before they bounce the thing anyway. Maybe a free from the centre square?

Let's not let the now "Old Chestnut" of hands in the back go under the radar..... have always said it is a stupid rule simple because the they miss as many as they give .... :banghead

In the final qtr ... Tiges 6 points up with all the momentum, Joel on the lead 30 mts out and not one but two hands in his back and the arms are a flappin "play on" 30 seconds later in the same area Jnr gets a free for a high takles that was below the shoulders.....  :banghead :banghead

Geelong fans sitting behinds us start laughing "geez we were lucky Bowden should have Garny shouldn't have" ....

Bloody fantastic ... another goal to Geelong from a dodgy free

And let's not forget the throw to Johnson by junior in the last either

Look I don't believe in blaming umpires but struth some of the goals that Geelong got gifted yesterday were softer than Richmond were against Carlton the week before  :banghead

Say it how it is, WP  :clapping

I was so spewing at the do-gooders on here bagging our players for doing silly things  ::)

The umpiring was a disgrace and stuff the letter of the law  :banghead

why should i be sensible when it comes to umpires, should not have been nathan jones' dad getting his jaw broken on the w/e but the umpires and gieshen. why be sensible when it is not half obvious that geishen and the umpires have an agenda against richmond.  dont know why terry and the club dont do a collingwood after every game we get screwed because making an appointment to seek clarification is a total waste of time. put the umpires in the spotlight, cop a fine if you get one but tell the afl world that they way we get unjustly treated on the field by umpires is just not on.
