Umpires were not the problem tonight. Anyone who thinks they were is just deflecting from our actual shortcomings.

I turned it off at 3 quarter time. By that point I'd seen enough. After last night the last thing I wanted to see was MFC get umpired out of an important win, so I have no idea how the umps were in the last quarter, but I can speak on the first 3 quarters and the umpiring was deplorable. At this point I am getting a bit disheartened by AFL.

Still Melksham & Hannan both caught high inside 50 in last quarter, nothing.

How many Port goals came from frees or 50 metre penalties!

Umpires are always [censored]. We got our fair share as well, particularly early. We should have won the game regardless of umpiring, it's nothing but deflection.

10 free kicks in a row is not a deflection, 50-50 decisions all went Ports way in the last quarter.

The Melksham decision was a disgrace and paying a 50 for it was an even bigger disgrace. He didn't realise for about 30 seconds it was a free against him.

We won the inside 50’s by almost 30 (68-39) and the clearances 54-38. We should have won by 5 goals. Yes the umpiring was average at best but a good side doesn’t lose a game with those stats. We did not take our chances. We only have ourselves to blame.

The umpiring was a [censored] disgrace that bald [censored] is the worst umpire in the country. Brayshaw's was an obvious mark.

The Brayshaw mark was the same as Wingards, should have been paid.

Melk's shepherding decision was a disgrace.

Yes Nichols is a ..... of an umpire.

...but we cost ourselves the game through poor delivery into the forward line.

Umpires or not there was a 30+ point win there for the taking.

When will the afl make these clowns full time professionals? As long as they have amateurs umpiring the umpiring will be amateur. The last quarter was totally unprofessional and incompetent.

Did someone post 17-11 our way at half time? That means 19-7 Port in second half. Seems fair, especially when you win the contested ball most of the night.

Round 14

AFL's interpretation to umpire to the home crowds, seems to take precedence over the reality.

It used to be just Collingwood and Carlton, that got the dream run from the umps... now it seems its's the vigorous home crowds, the Umpires are directed to Panda to. 😒

Learning curve, rjay.

Learning to play big games, and intensity.   Its NOT wasted.

Clear intent by the maggots to influence the result of that game. I preferred when we were [censored] at least we all knew deep down that we weren't going win much. But don't worry it will all be glossed over and no umpire will have to explain anything, cause hey its the result the AFL wanted. [censored] joke.

Well when you get 19 frees to PA and only 7 to Melbourne, after half time then they do play a part and 2 frees in front for goals and very iffy to PA..

However you look at it ??? Lewis gets his head pulled off no free  in the forward pocket? Well please yourself. That's fine. I will leave it at that. Gut Wrenching !  Not sour, just not fair. Good luck to the Interstate sides.
