    Umpiring v West Coast in Perth

    I'd take that, can't see it being that even.

    And hit another Melbourne supporter on the chest, carrot out.

    Has Nicholls ever paid us a free?

    Do you have data on that GOTO or just your observations?

    GAMEDAY - Round 21

    Nicholls calls play on and waves his arms, then blows the whistle, holding the ball. Who made that decision?

    GAMEDAY - Round 21

    8 free kicks to 2 since start of Q2

    GAMEDAY - Round 21

    I'm not sure why we bother kicking the ball to JKH

    GAMEDAY - Round 21

    Correct. Swans are avoiding stoppages by throwing the ball out and dropping it.

    Geez we can find players by foot well, shame they're all the opposition

    Better tactic, kick it high on top of Allir's head. Let him cop a few.

    GAMEDAY - Round 21

    Nicholls can't even run a coin toss

    Round 21 Non MFC Games

    2nd is still open if we win all 3. It means we beat WCE, and I'd back the Lions to beat them in Bris.

    Round 21 Non MFC Games

    One rule tweak I would make is a tackler can't be penalised for a lingering tackle if his opposition doesn't dispose properly. Quite often the ball carrier just drops it and the tackler has no way of knowing.

    Round 21 Non MFC Games

    You're probably right but on a tv screen, which is where the evidence is, who's to say how far 5, 10, 20 metres is? Umpires get the distances wrong many times over in every game. Short kicks, running too far etc, so who knows how far 5m is???? I'd like to see the May hit again to see how far that was, comparatively. Regardless, the best the commentary team could come up with was 'Saad had run 4 steps' before he was hit. Pardon [censored] me? Apparently in the rules somewhere it says something about 5 metres, and commentators of all people should be up with that news, but is there something in the rules about how many steps a player takes before it's a late hit? Amateur hour. How much do these clowns get paid?
