So much growth still left in his game. Going to be insane how good he could be
I don't reckon he'd be too concerned.... given it was pretty clearly touched.
Whatever you think. Might have been touched...but the ball didn't change trajectory so couldn't be overturned. Having spent a few years goal umpiring, every f*ucking defender claims he's touched every f*ucking goal, even if they're 30 metres away. It's in their DNA. I reckon there's an argument to allow touched goals.
Touched or not, I think we can all agree that goal review system is effing useless.
It was designed to overule the shockers not the almost impossible to detect touches. So it's doing its job.Problem is once you bring in any system people start expecting it to fix/detect everything.
Maybe they can bring in hotspot, to see whether the ball was touched. Then that dingbat Taylor can say "boy oh boy wohee richo there is a spot there, the umpire was spot on".
Maybe we should chuck him into the midfield firing of 25 quick handballs a game. It's somehow managed to get Clayton Oliver into Brownlow contention.
About his goal and the review system.
The system works pretty well for what it was designed to do. You could not see any deflection of the fingers so therefore umpires call. For those saying it was clearly touched. What are you basing that on?
Clayton Oliver looks like a faster Scott West, loves the one two stat builder.
Ditto the Collingwood game, where we touched one, umpire called, review made it "umpire's call" and idiots said "I don't reckon he touched that". Think it was Hurley, although there was another Hurley one where there was no evidence the other way.
Make him captain already
Will come back fresh as a daisy against the cats and get 80+ possessions and 9 goals in the midfield.
I actually think it brushed Goddard's fingers on the way through.
I thought goddard's finger did deflect back but it was only visible on the last frame by frame replay they showed as the bloke in the box was already relaying his decision.Aside the obvious issues about the camera angles etc, it's worth noting that any system that involves human interpretation of anything is open to human error. There's always a chance the numpty in the box won't know what he's looking at on the screen.
Basically - the entire game of Aussie Rules.
Or the definition of AFL umpiring.
