Live Broadcasts and Mobile Phones

From the Dubai Open comes the news that a player was expelled from the tournament after receiving advice via his mobile phone. M. Sadatnajafi, from Iran, was caught on move 10 after arbiters saw him looking at his mobile handset. When examined the phone contained text message from a friend in Iran who was following the live broadcast of the game over the internet. Full story here.

Barry Hall should have got a life ban and so should this dickhead.

[As an aside, if Hall has another "mind snap" and seriously harms another player, under OH&S the AFL will find itself sewed big time. And that will lead to a tsumami of suits. While the AFL is not the ACF, it is evidence that even salaries do not buy competent professionals]
