A controversial umpire decision has seen the Adelaide Crows defeat Collingwood at Adelaide Oval.
Josh Jenkins scored the crucial goal late in the third quarter despite appearing to kick the ball after the siren.
Rachel Riga reports.
Fallout from the decision today threatened to overshadow the Crows’ fifty-one point victory.
Josh Jenkins secured the goal after the siren sounded, but because the crowd was so loud, umpires didn’t hear it.
Collingwood president Eddie McGuire is fuming over the decision and has called on the AFL to fix the situation.
Coach Nathan Buckley says he agrees the problem needs looking at.
Nathan Buckley, Collingwood Coach: “I thought we had buzzers in umpire’s pockets and all of that stuff but this is how things evolve. Circumstances occur and you go geez we could do better than that.”
Richmond fans honoured legend Tommy Hafey at Punt Road this morning by toasting his favourite drink – a cup of tea.
Richmond players were also training in skin tight t-shirts which was the Richmond great’s signature.
There will be more tributes to Tommy Hafey, who passed away earlier this week, before tomorrow’s Richmond game against Melbourne at the MCG.
And Greater Western Sydney Giants player Toby Greene has been fined five thousand dollars and suspended for five matches.
This follows an altercation in Melbourne last weekend.
Police charges are still pending.
