#6 Dean Margetts umpired the Freo v Brisbane game on Sunday, with #4 Luke Foot(EDIT: Should have been Luke Farmer Thanks Fre_Doh) & #5 Jordan Bannister (instead of the appointed #7 Jeff Dalgleish).
He wasn't listed as an appointed umpire, nor an emergency and I am finding that all the (post) Match reports are showing that #7 Jeff Dalgleish umpired (when he did not).
Firstly I found it a little strange that a non appointed umpire got the gig, but even more strange that the AFL did not correct it's match reports to reflect the change.

Does the AFL Umpires Association get fined for a late team change the same as the teams do?

Surely you would fine Brisbane for bringing Margetts in at then last minute. After all, he was one of their best on Sunday

Great spot - he was lost for much of the game, indecisive (at best) and wrong. So what happened to the bloke who was supposed to do it?

DK, maggot no. 4 is Luke Farmer, maggot no.2 is Nick Foot.

Say what you will about Margetts, I'd still rather have him than Dalgleish, Stevic and Fisher.

Umpires who have done 5 or more Freo games during R1 2014 to R14 2015;
(For are when the games free kick tally ended in Freos favour, Against is when Freos opponents got more frees)

#6 Dean Margetts: 12 Games, 6 For, 6 Against
#7 Jeff Dalgleish: 11 Games, 2 For, 9 Against.
#8 Brett Rosebury: 9 Games, 3 For, 6 Against.
#9 Matt Stevic: 7 Games, 1 For, 6 Against.
#3 Leigh Fisher: 6 Games, 0 For, 6 Against.
#4 Luke Farmer: 5 Games, 3 For, 2 Against.

As Fre_Doh says, Fisher, Stevic and Dalgleish games generally end with the frees falling in favour of the opposition.
Rosebury gets my noteworthy mention. Freo lost 5 of the 9 games he umpired. All 5, Freo ended on the wrong side of the free kick ledger

I think sometimes we mistake incompetence for cheating. Margetts is incompetent. Fisher is a cheat.

How come they're never incompetent at giving frees to the opposing team? I lost count how many times our players were dragged back trying to get to a ball.

Let's just call them cheats. It makes more sense. Isn't Fisher the one who got sacked by Lyon at St Kilda? And no one at Ump central has put 2 + 2 together yet, or cares?

Dalgleish, Stevic and Fisher odds on for v St Kilda then.

Margetts has proved he is a very good judge of when and where to give a free kick, that's why his for/against reads like it is fair and balanced.

Rosebury could give us a million frees but I'll never forgive him for gifting the Hawks a goal via Franklin's 50m against Elvis in the 2013 GF.
I've seen that happen twenty fold since and never once penalized.
He stuck a knife in our collective hearts and I stick pick at the scab every time I see his smug mug.

If only someone in the media could read Dockerland, and run a piece about anti-freo bias. Like maybe in Thursday's paper, hint, hint.

DM is a clearance / stoppage / turnover specialist against Freo.
A timely free with an added 50m penalty can cause a defensive position to be quickly turned into an attacking manoeuvre and a momentum changer. Just a couple every game at crucial moments can be telling.
