When the people on-microphone can’t hear the main conversation

From tonight’s AFL coverage on Channel Seven. Bruce McAvaney was talking about Collingwood.

Bruce McAvaney: A month ago we were wondering if they would get in to the top four, now we’re wondering if they can cling on to a spot in the top eight.

Umpire (on field): Nooooo

One wonders if they commentators are hooked in to the same mix as the audience and are therefore able to hear the umpires. I only wonder because the commentators didn’t seem to notice the umpire’s comment, and I would have almost expected Dennis Cometti to inform Bruce that “you have your answer”.
