Not even the umps are safe.
Field umpire Chris Kamolins was removed from the clash between Essendon and Port Adelaide after suffering a lower leg injury.
Triple M boundary rider Sarah Faour spotted the incident.
"Guys, a little bit earlier in the match, one of the umpires - number 19, Chris Kamalins - injured himself," she said at three quarter time.
"He had his left lower leg strapped and he has been benched for the rest of the game.
"I just noticed that Eleni Glouftsis, the first ever (female) AFL umpire who debuted earlier in the season came over to her colleague, just to make sure he was A-OK."
