Triple M Footy news breaker Tom Browne revealed today that the AFL has sent a memo to clubs about coaches comments about umpiring.
THE MEMO THE AFL SENT TO COACHES ABOUT UMPIRING COMMENTS:
“Over the last day or, it’s my understanding that the AFL has sent a memo to the bosses of footy at all the clubs, just asking them to reign the coaches in, in terms of their criticism, or critique, or comments regarding the umpiring,” Browne said on the Tom Browne’s News podcast.
“The AFL does send regular communication to the clubs, there’s no issues there, but there has a note as part of it go out this week… asking the coaches to reign in their commentary in regards to the umpiring.
“There was previously a bit of an unwritten rule, in press conferences coaches would often say ‘oh I can’t comment on the umpiring for fear of getting a fine.”
