QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Life is not even fair on replay”

I liked this philosophical reflection on video-referees in sport. It has much wider import than just AFL, or sport:

“The decision review system is a turkey. Really; we should all
of us be prepared to cop the umpire’s decision. That’s life. Life
is not fair. It turns out life is not even fair on replay.”

- from “E. Regnans on Carlton v His Collingwood,” Footy Almanac
