      Yes, I am confused too if what the Pivot team are saying is right. Makes no sense. Might go back to the Pivot show and listen again to see if I mis-heard.

        At the start of the show they said the 120 minutes started at the first whistle, I couldn’t watch the rest though so maybe they changed their story?

          Yes, that is what they said last night. From the beginning of the game they had 120 minutes. It would make no sense otherwise.

            Collingwood Magpies blow up after 62-61 Super Netball defeat to Melbourne Vixens, West Coast Fever outlast Giants 74-73

              So I’ve just gone back to rewatch Pivot. This is what Holly said.

              “There was a bit of communication online last night referring to this ‘window of time’.

              The ‘window of time’ started at 7.30pm local time. But because both incidents happened – dcals and the power outage – they couldn’t complete the match in that time frame.”

              So 7.30pm local time was the scheduled start time. I checked the official SSN schedule – it says 7.00pm AEDT.

              So Holly is saying the ‘window of time’ did NOT start at the delayed start time – an hour later at 8.30pm local time.

              Curiouser and curiouser.

                This is so weird! Hopefully somebody gives us some actual clear information soon. What a week this has been… good weekend to be a Lightning supporter and not too many others 😂

                  That made me laugh StatsNerd21.

                  They said they’d find out about it and discuss on Centre Circle. BRING ON THURSDAY EVENING!

                    This is what I was confused about last night. It made no sense to have started. Hopefully the communication to the teams has been clearer.

                    Then todays CP stuff up and the league is looking rather amateur.

                      There’s an article in The Age about the mistake….

                      Richardson is right about about umpires being able to check with others – the back up umpire, the scorers and the score board – to know whose CP it is.

                      But her comment “And they shot after the siren anyway. So, that is a massive error.” is just plain wrong given Ward gave away a penalty.

                        Yes the siren is irrelevant. It was a penalty shot. MJ was going to give it to Austin to take it till Austin told her she had it and backed her in.

                        This league is so tight. Some very good teams will miss finals. Can’t afford mistakes that cost teams competition points.

                          I agree Tully. Bizarre mistake and I hope it doesn’t have consequences for Magpies (even tho’ they’re not one of my fave teams).

                          Liking watching T’Birds and Lightning.

                            No. The original start time for the game was 6:30pm Adelaide time. 7:30pm was the rescheduled start time after they delayed it for an hour because of the floor.

                              Sorry for getting the local time wrong…the SSN puts AEDT/AEST…then Holly says ‘local time’.

                              So how long was the delay re the power outage? With one half played – 15 minutes for each of two quarters, plus time outs, plus the break at quarter time plus unscheduled stoppages and then the planned half time break…would be close to an hour.

                              Later Holly said this – “regardless of the ‘time window’ the game still would not gone ahead and finished because it would have taken too long to bring someone out to rectify the power outage because the venue didn’t have appropriate back up in place to fix it on its own” (she mentioned back up generator).

                                Just 2 rounds into what is supposed to be the best Netball Comp in the world, and Kelly Ryan is going to have to deal with a utter shambles of a weekend.
                                Quite frankly there should be nothing on the court, except a Wooden Floor, nothing that players could slip and get hurt.
                                And as for 2 centre passes in a row, what is this Social Grade stuff.

                                  I think the confusion about the time window stems from a quote from NA’s integrity officer. She didn’t say they changed the start time rather that they extended the time period and didn’t refer to start time. I’ll try and locate the full quote and post it. Poor wording. Hopefully the team’s received a clearer explanation before, during and post match.

                                  SSN have put out a statement saying they are looking into the umpiring error in the Collingwood match but that the result stands. Well of course it stands, they can’t go down that path or they will open themselves to appeals of all match results for umpire errors (such as time clocks in missed held balls etc).

                                  Collingwood are looking very good but I’d like to see them use their bench. They have good players on their bench and they will need them at some point so get some court time into them. They didn’t lose a 9 goal lead because of the umpire error. Vixens played various combinations and exploited impact from the bench such as Mundy to change the momentum. Why didn’t Collingwood do this? Jovic was far too heavily penalised and Mundy was doing well so why not try Braz moving up and Hinchliffe on?
