THAT point

Post by nudder12 » Sun Aug 05, 2018 12:07 pm

Am I the only one frustrated by the talk about Josh Jenkins point last night?
So he said he "thought" it hit the post.
But quite possibly he was wrong yeah?
And given the goal umpire said it was a goal, and the video couldn't prove any different, then hey, maybe it was a goal!

Not specific to last night, but f*** off the technology.
Go back to umpires call. Worked 150 or so years.
Sure you get some clangers, but they still can’t get it right anyway..,

You`re right and they will probably wait until a final, possibly even the grand final is decided (wrongly) because of their inept technology. Something needs to change,(maybe even the rules of the game), so that if the ball hits the post goal-side and goes through it`s a goal,(BOOM get on with the game), if it hits point side of the goal post same-same,(except it`s a point) :lol: , point post it`s a point or out of bounds obviously. It could also possibly be play on if it hits either post and bounces back into play?. It would save a shitload of time as well with them NOT repeatedly showing blurry,inconclusive,footage at half a frame a second or what-ever the f*** it is. :evil:

If not they need to employ proper technology including high-speed camera`s and hot-spot technology similar/same that they use in cricket, take the fkng guess work out of it and get it right BEFORE it costs some-one big time.
