Getting back to the lineman's role without going around in circles. I get why people think they are pointless now but they aren't. They still signal for various decisions, ie throw ins (and direction), corners, fouls etc. Its why the correct term is assistant referee. But they can always be overruled on any decision.

They'll always exist. The same can't be said for those pointless penalty refs that were trailed a few years back.

Quite why Riley thinks it's a good idea to flag before the ball ends up dead I don't know. Its stupid and I reckon this season will be the last we see of it.
