The AFL's Director of Umpiring, Peter Schwab, and his son Michael, joined Washington Junior AFL President, Chris Adams, and At-Large Member, Steve Carty, at Monday Night Football. It was pretty cold night at the football. But despite the cold, Peter and Michael enjoyed watching Cam Newton show his stuff and do the dab.
The AFL announced that Peter had taken up his former role as head of umpiring after stepping down as list manager at the Brisbane Lions.
