How did they miss the 50mtr penalty to Marlion in the first when the Carlton player returned the ball to his own team mate?  It would've seen Marlion shooting from the top of the goalsquare ....       :huh

There is only four umpires give them a break, its not as if one of them could be expected to know the rules

Umps OK but I'd really like to see more crackdown on deliberately drawing high contact. Shrugging the arm and dropping the knees etc, still seeing too many get paid.

I thought the confusion was honest. If that's the standard for the year that's fine. I have zero confidence they would have treated Pickett the same if the roles were reversed.

Oh and HTB vs Dusty is just a rule on its own. One of them he got a hospital pass on the boundary and was grabbed immediately = HTB. Total BS.

Otherwise largely OK.

Just wanna see some consistency and toughness.

Was Taranto's shinned kick forward out of traffic deliberate?  :P

Umpires that have never played the game and relying on a stuffen text book to tell him how to umpire are never going to do a good job

Crap call.

Congested, being grabbed, just moving the ball forward.

Not what the rule is for.

Watching the replay, I'm still wondering how this wasn't a free kick. Unrealistic attempt plus the left arm was over Mansell's shoulder :huh.

You just need to consult the Official AFL Rules MT.  I have and outline the relevant extract as follows:

Rule 10.1

It shall be a free kick where a player, whether intentionally or otherwise, makes contact with another player on or above the other player's shoulders.

Rule 10.2

Rule 10.1 does not apply and the umpire shall signal play on where the player infringed wears a guernsey that is black with a yellow sash or yellow with a black sash.

At the game and I thought that were going to pay a blocking free kick against Mansell for impeding the run at the ball.

Great desperation and tackle by Young on Walker but yet another example of the umps taking forever to make an obvious decision. And they wonder why the tackled player ends up getting slung into the turf. Yes, the players have a duty of care in the tackle but so do the umpires with their decisions.
