NO DOGS ALLOWED


RMFL ROUGH PLAY CAMPAIGN

The River Murray Football League does not condone rough play in the form of violence on the football oval. It has instructed Umpires to use all of the necessary tools of discipline they have at their disposal including; the free kick, 50 metre penalty, yellow and red card and umpires report which results in players having to present themselves to the tribunal.

The RMFL have launched a campaign we are calling “NO DOGS ALLOWED”. The intent of the slogan is to create an impression that playing outside of the rules with unnecessary violence through any form of forceful contact we refer to as “Biting” and “Barking”. Biting activities include; kicking, punching, elbowing, bumping an opponent above the shoulders etc. “Barking” activities include; swearing, abuse of umpires, players and officials, vilification and derogatory comments towards others.

All players and officials of the RMFL agree such behaviour is low and unacceptable, and what we will refer to as DOG ACTivities. The intention of the campaign is much similar to the Danny Green initiative of the “Coward Punch”. As a player, you will be seen as a villain, and “not cool” should you engage in any of the DOG ACTivities listed above.

PHOTO GENIUS

 

How lucky we are to have both Bill Bailey of the Murray Valley Standard and Julie Wright from The Blues to share their camera skills with those football skills of our players! 

This lot is thanks to Bill!

RMFL Appoints Umpire's Coach for 2018.

The RMFL have appointed Randall Cocks to steer the RMFL Umpires through the 2018 season. Randall brings a lot of experience through playing and coaching football at Tailem Bend, Coaching at Ramblers, Umpiring at RMFL senior level as well as in the Kowree-Naracoorte/Tatiara Football League.

Randall will be assisted by Kym Schenscher who is a well credentialed and respected local umpire. Kym will focus in fitness levels required, assist with matchday appointments and continue to umpire senior football games.

Kelvin Farnham will be the Umpire's Director on the RMFL Executive Committee. Kelvin will be the link between the umpires and the Executive Committee and support the Umpire's team wherever possible.

Dave Mitchell who has served the RMFL over the past 3 years as the Umpires Coach will take up a role reporting to Kelvin. Dave will assist with recruiting junior umpires as well as providing independent Umpires reports to Kelvin. The RMFL would like to thank Dave for his hard work over the three years, in particular last season where the boundary umpires panel was a success.

The RMFL will provide this group the support it needs to ensure the umpires panel grows and develops. There will be more news on this topic as we enter the new season, meanwhile we wish the appointees all the very best for 2018.
