THE AFL umpiring department has admitted Callum Mills should have been called to play on in an incident that cost Adelaide a goal in the final quarter of the Sydney Swans' thrilling three-point win on Friday night.

But, they are standing by their call not to penalise Lance Franklin for "probably" running too far in what will go down as one of the goals of the season.

After the siren: Which Buddy goal is the best?

In the first incident, Mills took a mark on the Swans' defensive 50 and instantly took a step as he looked to handball.

He was expertly tackled by Adelaide's Eddie Betts, but instead of winning a free kick, Betts was slugged with a 50m penalty because the umpire did not call play on.

"What we would have liked in that situation would be the umpire quickly call play on," head AFL umpires coach Hayden Kennedy said on Monday.

"What we saw was Mills control the ball, and in our belief, he then made an effort to play on.

"The expectation is from us is when Callum did go forward on the mark and go through the play-on motion, our expectation as a group is to call play on."

"That would have been the best result for us."

At the time, the Swans were trailing by nine points and there were just over six minutes left in the game.

The 50m penalty against Betts saw Sam Reid mark and goal, which narrowed the margin to within a goal.

The match-winner came two minutes later when Tom Papley goaled and sealed the Swans' victory.

Meanwhile, Kennedy conceded Franklin likely ran almost 20m without taking a bounce – well past the allowed 15m – in his incredible third-quarter goal where he ran down the wing from half-back.


But, he acknowledged it was almost impossible to judge Franklin in that instance, as he was a "really fast man with long strides".

"I'm sure if the umpire felt he ran over the 15m, he would have paid it," Kennedy said.

"We paid two on the night, which I haven't seen for a long period of time, but it was a very marginal call as to whether or not he ran over the 15.

"I think if you go slo-mo, I think he's probably closer to the 20 than 15. That's a fact, but live, I think it would be really hard for the umpire to tell if he's run over the 15.

"It still could be [goal of the year], because we didn't pay a free kick."

Free count was Cows 28, Swans 14. Umps missed a heap of frees. Mills and Bud decisions a minor part of the worst umpiring I have seen this season.

Not sure what to say. If his claims are true, I never condone racism in any form. Nonetheless, Harry O, as he was originally known, was always described as being a bit high maintenance, somewhat diva-like - someone who ran his own agenda and was a little self-seeking. Without being privy to the details supporting both versions, it's hard to comment. As mentioned, I don't condone racism and understand that an environment dominated by alpha males can give rise to unsociable behaviour.

He seems to me to be the sort who would have screamed from the rooftops at the time if he had been given a racial nickname...

Thanks Embee. What a geniac! Some of the marks and goals just made me laugh they were just so good. Had forgotten what a long kick he was on his left foot and that he was also pretty good on his right. 

Although his powers had begun to decline he was a fantastic contributor at the Swans. Is still a much loved figure there.

Two former team mates have come out and supported him. Have no doubt it is true. This is the same mob whose Prez publicly joked about Goodes and King Kong. Lamumba might be a bit of a wanker but that does not reduce the odium of other team mates giving him a racial epithet as a nick name.

I meant to add that I admire his steadfast refusal to break bread with Sheedy. I also wish the current game had more mercurial characters like Derek whose sheer ability makes you laugh.

He is from Tammin which was a neighbouring town to where I am from ...he played footy in a different Association but we had a few guys who played on him at Countryweek or in inter Association games and they said he never stopped running hard as well as being able to do the miraculous

He played WAFL for West Perth and Claremont and was just a genius ...should have won the 87 Sandover but got frustrated at a 'heavy tag' from Tim Gepp and smacked him ...

I watched practice at Windy Hill one day and he and Michael Long were having a goal kicking comp afterwards ....Both left footers , they were kicking bananas from outside 50 in the right side pocket and kicking them with ease

Tim Gepp was always elite in the smackable stakes - so no shock he became a runner. Peter Dean nearly sent him halfway back to his bench without touching the ground after he got sunstroke between Deano and his man once too often.

Some big hauls in the race for the Coleman.  Buddy edges ahead with Kennedy needing 5 to tie.

Is that 12-years-and-counting between wins for one club over another anywhere near a record?

although this was also posted by you in May

It's hard to understand what happened to the Bulldogs this year ... did they really deteriorate that much, or did they just fluke a golden patch right at the end of last year? I'm thinking a little of both.

Lardy, cannot remember the last time Baby Huey played an average game against my struggling mob. Thought for ages Scotty should move him on. Reminds me of our Tippett.
