Billy Hartung's snap over his shoulder in the first quarter of the Sydney versus North Melbourne Round 7 clash has been ruled OK by the AFL on Sunday morning.
The goal, which clearly flicks McVeigh's outstretched hand as he dives for the ball, had been ruled a goal during play, and subsequent replays displayed on tvs and big screens around the ground, showed small contact with the ball and Jarrad's hand.
The AFL on Sunday morning, said that there wasn't enough definitive evidence to overturn the controversial goal, in a match that the Kangaroos won by two points.
Neither goal or field umpire called for a review of the goal, and with time seemingly running out, the central umpire restarted play, while replays of the touched goal were playing on the big screens.
Despite the ball being touched, the goal wasn't overturned.
A league spokesman told AFL.com.au the vision was inconclusive.
"There was not enough definitive evidence to overrule and change the decision in time before the restart of play, so the original decision stood."
In recent weeks, AFL Football Manager Steve Hocking has been publicy critical of the AFL's score review system, criticising the length of time it takes to make decisions, delaying games, and overstepping its mandate.
Hocking has asked score review officials to make the decisions in under 30 seconds, or else back the original decision made by the goal umpire.
Swans coach John Longmire wouldn't be drawn into talking about the review system after the match.
"If he touched it, he touched it, that’s what the review is for I would have thought, but anyway."
