Cummins did NOT do well in IPL.

Yes. The criticism is fair because they are umpires. That’s their job. If they make up their own rules depending on crowd size, the umpire has gone missing and the game changes.
Coaches and players get castigated for their mistakes. Officials should not be immune.

You said, “Good summation…”

It wasn’t.

Discretion is a good call. Simply umpire “on merit” in each situation. Take back authority on dissent.
Extend such discretion to the MRO as well.
Just demand umpires return to ‘fairness not favouritism’.

The AFL 'explaining' controversial umpiring decisions is attention-seeking nonsense that doesn't help anyone

He was terrible during this year’s IPL. What are you looking at? Green and Ellis were more economical and had a better bowling averages in this year’s IPL.
I’m surprised at your ‘like’ Arnab.

You won’t have much support. Umps have been really bad because they don’t umpire fairly. The crowd influences them too much.

Umps get respect but they lose it when they do things not worthy of respect. It’s a two-way street. Umps are shaping the results of too many games, too often.

That’s because he stuffs up a lot.

700 players in the AFL.

13th is pretty condemning.

Three errors; not calling the mark, not calling stand, not giving 50. Umps have whistles. Blow them.

Cummins doesn’t bowl well at all in T20 cricket.

I suspect you want a reply to a post if you post on a conversation site. If you don’t like the response, the problem is yours, not mine.

Only the trolls have a problem. The rest of us have good conversations.

Footy Fix: The scariest part about the Swans? They're still nowhere near their best

If you don’t like how you are characterised, improve.

It was all about Freo and “sack JLo.

You seem to love telling me what I’ve said…even though you get it wrong. I can’t tell you what you said. It’s totally forgettable and always silly…just fun to play around with. You’re a bit like play dough for the keyboard.

I’ve been tipping Doggies for a finals finish while everyone else was calling for Bevo’s head. Quite a few of the top 8 to fall out.

The Dons, Port, Pies and Geelong all possibilities to miss out. One might survive. GC, Doggies and Brissy will all make it.

That was Freo’s real issue…post-bye games. You’ve got to admit, though, that the two run-ons we had, after your first 2 goals and in the third quarter, we showed what we can do. We also showed that last time we played you too.

It was just a bad night. It seems only those committed to trolling are the only ones who are unaware of what Freo offers. I suspect there were some angry folk who might have had Freo in a multi. (I had 6/7 and picked the correct 20pt margin in Friday’s game…but I didn’t have a bet.)

Really? Of what? You do know Freo is sitting in the 8, don’t you?
What bit did you think was a “good summation”?

Six Points: Roos cop the mother of all stitch-ups, Clarko's coaching howler, and Horse does star Swan dirty

Not so. I barracked for Geelong in the VFL. East Freo in the WAFL.

You seem obsessed with me. Nevertheless, what has any of that got to do with anything?

Huh? Geelong? What? Where? How? Who? Why?

Yes, that’s fanciful, but the whistle of affirmation for Carlton and Collingwood is a factor for every umpire not called Razor.

Last decade. If you look at the footy this season, you’d sober up.

Wade has been pathetic with the gloves and has barely been needed with the bat.

As they say in racing form guides, “Others better.”

Steve Smith is just not a white ball cricketer. He gets too lost in theories.

And Freo would be second.

Freo, by the way, have won 4 of their 7 away games and two of them were “moral” wins in Adelaide with the whistle changing both results. Freo has been a strong travelling sides for a while now.

Gold Coast has real up side; the Freo/Gold Coast game will be a gem.

Nope.
