gold coast educate stuart dew stays in favour of afl purpose-line technology despite being on the receiving cease of calls in a two-factor loss to port adelaide.
gold coast instruct stuart dew stays steadfast in help of the afl’s goal-line audio technology in spite of it costing his aspect dearly in a -factor loss to port adelaide.
two times, the suns’ mabior chol celebrated dreams in sunday’s adelaide oval come across.
and two times, the end result of his second-zone kicks have been overturned on evaluation because audio proof showed both had brushed a goal-publish.
on both events, the intention umpire’s so-known as gentle signal changed into a aim.
had the ones calls stood, the suns could have received, but dew changed into pragmatic.
“technology is right here – and for a cause,” he said.
“if i used to be wearing the competition colorations and also you had generation that saw that it hit the submit twice, and you misplaced the sport whilst you’re looking to hold your season alive, i think it might be pretty deflating.
“so in which we will use it, let’s use it … it is what it’s miles.
“if it’s there, we want to use it. you’ll hate for that to be a very last and get it wrong.”
the afl introduced audio era just like cricket’s ‘snicko’ in 2019, with microphones implanted in goalposts.
the audio from the microphones is correlated with video feeds to decide if the ball struck a put up.
but it became the video feeds in every other second-term incident in sunday’s game which raised questions for power teach ken hinkley.
a protracted-variety kick from port forward kane farrell turned into dominated, on video overview, to had been touched at the intention-line by using a suns defender.
replays showed a fragment of the ball in the back of the road of the intention-publish padding – the whole ball must go over it for a purpose to be scored.
“we felt like we had been fortunate with their that hit the submit,” hinkley said of chol’s overturned goals.
“however we felt we had been actual unfortunate with the (farrell) one that looked find it irresistible went across the line almost.
“i do not need to reveal my lack of awareness however it must be to clean the intention line, but sincerely it’s the padding on the put up.”
hinkley provided an answer: have the intention-line painted at the purpose-posts.
“it might be quite simple if that changed into what the line is, but it would look a chunk odd,” he said.
“clean the aim line, is what it have to be. quite easy.”
