I find clarkson as painful as the next guy but if one coachs whinging throws the umpiring department on its head the problem aint with the coach

lol at blaming Clarkson instead of the terrible umpires who get to skate on without improving because the media and public find dunking on anyone who sticks their head up more interesting than fixing the broken umpiring department

a bit of both

Umpires paid significantly more holding the ball free kicks from Rounds 5-8 after Alastair Clarksonís outburst, but got fewer right, a leaked document shows.

Foxfooty.com.au has obtained a memo sent to clubs on Wednesday which details the breakdown of free-kicks in the last month.

The email included a detailed infographic and was put together by the AFL.

...

From Rounds 1-4, there was an average of 6.7 holding the ball free kicks per game - 82 percent of these decisions were deemed correct.

From Rounds 5-8, there was an average of 9.6 holding the ball frees per match, with 80 percent considered correct.

All up, there were more frees paid in the last month than the first month of the season, up by 2.4 percent. But the accuracy fell marginally, from 82 percent in Rounds 1-4 to 79 percent in Rounds 5-8.

Overall one in five free kicks for holding the ball is incorrectly awarded

Edit: vvvv non-paid frees? I'm sure they review the game but no leaked stats.

The early and long contract extension given to Simon Goodwin always had a lot of risk. I don't think we can afford to fire him, but there is a lot to suggest that he isn't a great coach.

I don't want to just roll through coaches every 2-3 years, but also want to avoid an Alan Richardson situation where we hang on too long.

Ross Lyon is seemingly available, refreshed and willing to coach again...

Start a go fund me to sack Goodwin. Or consider these two years a write off and do whatever is necessary to get Clarkson given their contracts end at the same time

The timing of the awful umpiring could not be worse. I'm already fairly disengaged from this dumb season, the quality of the umpiring is making it worse. Especially when teams are gifted goals in games that are relatively low scoring. Starts to become like bad penalties given in soccer.

It honestly wouldn't surprise me if the attitude was "this season is a write-off anyways, just do whatever you want umpiring-wise and we'll see what happens"

God and they were in some extra tripe form tonight too. An amazing bit of analysis was:

Bruce: What's your thoughts on that tackle count? 13-2, and the bombers are the best tackling team in the comp aye?

BT: Yeah 13-2

Carey: Surprising as the Bombers are the best tackling team in the comp

Just scintillating stuff.

I canít believe how much much jerking off they do of Carey in the commentary box, it was so obvious last night. Carey had his best four players for the game, and Hodge had the audacity to question the list, with Bruce getting audibly erect saying ďyou donít question the King!!!Ē and BT baking Bruce up, it was loving gross.

Ignoring all of Careyís disgraceful/criminal behaviour, heís just a really poo poo commentator. His analysis equates to ďwe need more big key forwards and big key backsĒ.

quote:

Collingwood Football Club has fully accepted the sanction it received today for a breach of AFL COVID-19 protocols.

Senior coach Nathan Buckley and forwards coach Brenton Sanderson also accept their responsibility for the breach, which occurred on Friday afternoon when the pair played tennis with two people living outside of the teamís Perth hub.

To demonstrate their accountability, the pair have asked to personally pay the portion of the fine that is not suspended, a sum of $25,000. Collingwood has been fined $50,000 for the breach, $25,000 of which is suspended.

Eddie was calling for people who breached the AFL rules (talking mainly about wives and girlfriends from other clubs which have been fined) to be flown back to Victoria right away.

I wonder what excuse he'll give for Bucks.

Doing the high throw got paid 50 a lot a few years ago. Iíve been wondering when it was going to come back because players have been really taking the piss with the slow high throw back lately.
