[quote="footyman"] Hopefully the rule books have been read and the orange uniforms burnt so the umpiring panel in 2005 don't have to be much of a talking point (therefore we won't need an umpires board). [/quote] Agreed. Those fluero uniforms were terrible and made the umpires stand out like dogs balls. I swear the umpires looked embarassed walking down the race with 'em on. Dead set shockers.

Ar you sure that Wizard home loans sponsor the VFL umpires?? I know they sponsor the AFL but I'm not so sure about the VFL. Especially given that the major sponsor is Vic State Home Loans. Just not sure thats right

[quote="goal_umpire"]Firstly the orange tops are staying because the umpires major sponsor is Wizard Home loans and their logos, banners, etc are orange. Secondly, there will be ppl like yourself come on here wanting to know what the rules are and why are they interpreted differently each year. The interpretations of the rules are different. Other ppl want to know where each umpire is umpiring at what ground and between teams to determine whether or not they will go to the game.[/quote] Firstly I was unaware that the Football Victoria umpires were sponsored by Wizard Home Loans. I can't say I've ever seen any advertising by them. In fact I was under the impression that one of the VFL's sponsors was actually another Home Loans company. Don't Wizard sponsor the AFL? As for your second point, unless the VFLs umpire coach wants to post on the board and tell us officially why certain rules are interpreted your point is irrelevant. And your last paragraph is absolute crap. Are you serious? I'm not going to stay away from a game just because someone I dislike is umpiring. You've been known on Bigfooty for talking garbage for years Suzanne, get a clue about the VFL before you subject us to reading your ill informed nonsense.

I think the umpires are sponsored by Buffalo Sports although I can't guarantee that. They are VFL sponsors howerver. Another sponsor is Victorian State Home Loans, but I believe they are general VFL sponsors as well, not directly involved with umpiring in Victoria. With regards to umpires keeping supporters away, I think the opposite is true.. I know supporters that really ark up if they no their most gated umpire will be umpiring their game. Steady on a bit with goal_umpire please Footyman, don't want things to get nasty :(

[quote="Dale61"]To the umpires on this board: 1/. When do the umpires receive their match day scripts? 2/. Who decides on which player from which team is going to get 'shafted' each week? 3/. Why does one team get umpired differently from the other? 4/. Who won the Umpires Association Tipping Comp last year? 5/. Why is it important for the umpires to be more noticeable on the ground, performance wise, than the players? (Ons, where is the tongue-in-cheek emoticon?)[/quote] Dale61, I think you need a dose of reality. You can do that by joining us at training. What you have posted there is just utter rubbish.

Hi suzi. 8O

[quote="Dale61"]The emphasis of my post was the comment to Onslaught re: the emoticon. Just goes to prove the umpires don't have a sense of humour.[/quote] More to the point Suzi Olsen doesn't have one. Pretty slow too, took four months for her to reply to you Dale. Saw that umpire today with the dodgy sideburns, someone should tell him to move out of the 80s.
