  The positive Rotten Tomatoes audience score for 'Gotti' has raised suspicions after the movie's thrashing by critics Many of the Rotten Tomatoes user accounts that positively reviewed the film were created this month and have only reviewed "Gotti," leading to suspicions that the audience score could be manufactured.The new John Travolta film "Gotti," which movie-theatre subscription service MoviePass invested in, may have a 0% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes, but audiences seem to "love" it - at least according to the film's Rotten Tomatoes audience score and a new marketing strategy for the movie.

AFL CHIEF executive Gillon McLachlan says score review mistakes are unacceptable but has dismissed claims the system should be abolished altogether. "It pisses me off when there are mistakes, direct answer," McLachlan told SEN on Wednesday morning.

The league 's score review system is again in the headlines, this time for what Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley described as a "monumental mistake" in allowing Jenkins' goal to stand in the Crows' three-point win on Saturday. The AFL has ticked off on the goal, releasing a statement soon after the

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.

"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."
