SYDNEY veteran Jarrad McVeigh has expressed his disappointment with the kiss on the cheek he received from Hawk Will Langford after the Swan booted a second-half goal.

It appears Langford was in an amorous mood during the Hawks’ six-point win over the Swans.

“He did it beforehand as well, earlier on, and I probably reacted too much and gave away a free kick,” he said on Triple M.

“I’m not going to stand there and take that.

“I thought it was pretty disrespectful. But that’s the way it is.”

Coach John Longmire backed the goal review system but has called on the league to splash some cash to sharpen the tool after a controversial moment in the final term.

A score review with 10 minutes remaining saw Hawk Liam Shiels awarded a goal, though Longmire said he believed the ball had been punched through by his charge Lewis Melican.

And he says a better system is desperately needed.

“I really like the concept of the goal review, but unless we get better cameras, it sort of almost defeats the purpose of it,” Longmire said.

“I really like the idea that we try and get the right score — and the right score is what it’s all about. But surely there’s better vision that we can achieve and there’s better cameras and better views in world sport, somewhere, that can actually determine and slow the ball down so it’s not as blurry and you can actually work out what it is.”

The Sydney coach rejected the suggestion that the review system is a waste of time, but said it must be improved.

“I think it’s a good concept, a sound concept,” he affirmed.

“But we need to spend some money on … I’m not up there with the technical camerawork, but hopefully we can actually invest and get some quality cameras that can actually determine what’s actually happened rather than just seeing the blurred vision that we see now.”
