Jimmy Bartel RIPS into the AFL following latest score review controversy

Jimmy Bartel has let rip on the AFL following Thursday night’s score review controversy.

The 3AW Football analyst, who is also a director at GWS, said Shaun McKernan’s crucial goal for Essendon in the dying stages was clearly touched.

The AFL has since defended “the system” that deemed it a goal.

Bartel did not hold back in response on Macquarie Sports Radio.

“What frustrates me the most is you’re either blatantly lying to us, or you’re so inept at your job that someone’s got to pay for it,” Bartel said.

“Don’t tell the general public that you review every goal, because you clearly don’t.

“And that’s the frustrating thing.”
