DEMONS COACH NOT A FAN OF THE SCORE REVIEW SYSTEM

AFL LOGO FACEBOOK

A questionable score review late in Sunday's AFL four-point loss to Brisbane didn't cost Melbourne coach Simon Goodwin's team a chance to win, but it didn't help either.

The Demons were coming home with a wet sail in the final term at Metricon Stadium, trailing by just three points with just over two minutes to play when Jake Lever marked a ball on the goalline.

Lever played on quickly and the Demons were seemingly on their way to spark another attack when play was halted to undertake a score review.

The review showed Lever had grabbed the ball before it went through for a behind but by the time play had restarted the Lions had reset their defence.

Goodwin didn't believe the review prevented his team winning the match, but he was left scratching his head about the AFL's Review Centre (ARC) and its application.
