However, the period ended with Oakland driving into Chiefs territory, a drive that ended on with Lamonica's 5th touchdown pass, throwing a 35-yard scoring pass to Wells after the man covering accidentally fell down. ^ 1968 NFL- AFL Commentator Crews.

AFL chief Gillon McLachlan concedes it "pisses me off" when there are errors with the league's contentious score review system, but claims calls to get rid of it altogether are "ridiculous".

The system has come under fire in recent weeks, with premiership coach Damien Hardwick labelling it an "embarrassment" last month, while a controversial goal paid to Essendon's Jake Stringer on the weekend – despite evidence to the contrary – further fuelled discussion about the system's merits.

McLachlan told SEN on Wednesday that he was angered when mistakes were made.

Reds search for new CEO as Barker resigns

  Reds search for new CEO as Barker resigns The Queensland Reds are looking to appoint a new chief executive following the resignation of Richard Barker due to family reasons. Queensland Rugby Union chief executive Richard Barker has stepped down from his post due to family reasons.The announcement was made by QRU chairman Jeff Miller on Monday but it has been weeks in the planning as Barker needs more time to devote to wife Tracey who is battling breast cancer. Miller, who has already been overseas scouting potential replacements, said chief operating officer David Hanham would take over as interim chief executive in the meantime.

Since being appointed Chief Executive Officer by the AFL Commission in September 2003, I have AFL umpires dealt with a major change in 2012 with the implementation of the score review system. Of the 25 mature-age players added to AFL lists in the off -season, seven played in the Foxtel Cup.

"It pisses me off when there's mistakes," McLachlan said.

"To have score review mistakes is unacceptable."

But he slammed calls to eliminate the use of technology.

"I think it's a ridiculous notion to get rid of it," he said, while acknowledging there was merit in discussing whether a brushed finger on the ball off the boot, the case in the Stringer incident, should be adjudicated as part of the system.

"It's not 'scrap the whole thing'," he said.

"It's 'do we actually finesse it a bit or tone it down and stop trying to solve stuff which is too hard to do, like a touch from 50 metres, so we'll limit its purview?'

"If you did that, then that's a fair conversation. Getting rid of it is not."

An urgent review has been ordered into the Queensland Heart Valve Bank after a serious breach, with the Health Department revealing four patients — including three babies —were given tissue from a donor who had brain cancer. Chief health officer Dr Jeannette Young said the breach happened more than a year ago, but was not discovered until earlier this month during an unrelated audit.
