This fucking umpiring, Vol 2.

Fair dinkum.


I am finding the BBL harder to pick than a broken nose at the moment, but the umpiring isn't helping things.


It feels like I am on the wrong end of the stick with all of them!


The obvious solution that everyone is crying out for is DRS.


Obviously.


But how shit house are the umpires?


DRS will of course work, but surely these blokes on the field can do a better job - not saying it is easy but fuck the umpiring has been woeful.


Some of the decisions that are being made right now are absolutely foul, there's been a howler just about every night.


The King isn't happy.

The NBA do it well, they have a replay centre that the on-court officials can utilise in certain periods of the game to ensure they get the big calls spot on.


The BBL needs that, and it needs to happen ASAP.


Even if the DRS technology isn't available right now, let's just give each team a challenge or something and we can refer to video replay - if it is clear and conclusive - then the decisions can be overturned.


Do something!


Cricket Australia have their head in the sand on this.



Last night there were two horrible calls, 1 absolutely plum LBW that was given not out - how on earth I have no idea.


Then another, I think it was Jake Weatherald who clipped one off the inside edge to fine leg for four and he was adjudged LBW - what the hell?


The BBL right now is in a pretty shitty spot.


Lynny is injured, the umpiring is horrific and the crowd numbers are light - panic stations.
