followed up by a "free" kick in a marking contest when the freo player has taken the mark, apparently he can see arm chopping when it doesn't have the desired effect.

AFL Umpires Association has replied to an enquiry I emailed. Dean Margetts was appointed to the Freo game after the Adelaide match was cancelled.
The emergency umpires are rookies and are used as a last minute option.

I will follow up with AFL to see if they may update their post match reports to correctly show Margetts umpired.
Gone to bigfooty where there's fewer Docker Haters.

Strangely enough, we have a very good record in games DM has umpired against us. He's a goose, but let's not kill him.

I'll tell you about anti freo bias Roger.

I was working in the corp box on the weekend, and my offsider, a rabid WC supporter, was telling me what a filthy little monster Hayden was. I leapt to the maligned mongrels defence, and mounted a pretty good one too - telling how he'd cleaned up his game from the clashes with Geelong of a couple of years ago, and the dodgy bump suspensions he'd copped every year since.

There was even a glimmer of doubt about their perceptions when I finished. Then we looked to towards the game, and right on cue, saw the little bloody hobbit wrestling.

What hope do we have from the umps?

My plan would have been to start waxing lyrical about what a great game Mitch Robinson was playing: putting himself on the line/ every team needs a bloke like that/ yada yada. He's trapped then: agree with you and you smack him with Ballas; disagree with you and he doesn't know anything about footy/ at least Freo supporters give credit where credit's due/ just because Gaff and Wellingham play footy doesn't mean its a game for nancypanters/ etc etc

Drubbing, was he wrestling before or after they'd whacked him in the head a couple of times? And was he wrestling on his own, or had he persuaded a Brissie player to join in?

So why did Margetts come into the game anyway. While the three named umpires do umpire worse than rookies, what happened to Dalgliesh?

Wrestling on his own.... now that's something I'd like to see. Don't think anything like that has happened since Jacko's days.

Umpire Dalgleish's wife was expecting a visit from the stork.

Hopefully Mrs Dalgleish and baby are doing well.

Margetts was supposed to umpire the Sydney game but was delayed in the Pilbara for some reason. He was replaced by Stevic who was supposed to umpire the Richmond game. Stevic was replaced by Chamberlain who was supposed to umpire the Adelaide game. Margetts was supposed to replace Razor Ray in Adelaide and replaced Dalgleish in Perth instead.

Can't we just replace all of them?

If Chamberain replaces Stevic in Darwin, and Margetts replaces a pregnant Dalgleish, who wins the 5th at Flemington?
