Umpires’ nightmare

The modern game must be a nightmare to umpire as at times its stacks on the mill and utter confusion.

It is therefore very rare to see them report anyone.

Never fear: the television commentators, who are mostly former players, do a wonderful job of “dobbing” players in then replaying it over and over again.

I have followed Aussie Rules since South and East shared Fremantle Oval surrounded by a cycle track.

Looking at today’s allegations, many players in the old days would have been on nearly permanent suspension – unbelievable.
