  • Latest Podcast: Bulldogs



Recommended Posts

Twice we were awarded free kicks around defensive 50, with the dogs player holding the ball far too long, allowing all their players to get back. Both should've been 50 metre penalties, yet neither was paid.

I thought the whole point of the 50 metre penalty was to prevent players from slowing play down. If channel 7 wants more goals they should be into the AFL to get these things right, not fixing the draw.

What's he got to complain about? He gets kissed on the dick down Kardinia Park.

Funny you should mention that. He was also asked whether or not sides in Perth, Adelaide and Geelong get a home ground advantage with the umpires, his response was definitely yes and that when you have a large proportion of the crowd cheering for one side it influences decisions.

Still a few mystifying decisions from "the munchkin" but I think he's warming to us. 

Any other player in the comp though and that would of been paid as deliberate :)

Is this the turning point for the year? MFC loves umpires and vice versa😊

And when you consider they let in 12 supporters from other clubs to watch matches down there.

Was there any perceptible evenness afterwards or did we just run away with it then?

It shows how petrified players have become about idiotic decisions by umpires that Gus has said:

"It's funny. People might not believe it, but I didn't intentionally kick it out of bounds," Brayshaw told AFL.com.au.

when it was so obviously not a skill error but a titanic skill disaster.

By umpiring standards I didn't think they did a bad job yesterday. It is the port game that gets up my youknowwhat where they cost us the game. And on the harmes handball at the start of the game I thaught the umpires got it right. He was too far out and it was deliberate. Closer to goal it isn't a problem.

I did read in breakdown of free kicks given to all teams ....Melb received the most goals from frees in their forward 50...(courtesy ofHerald Sun)

Thanks to Deestar9. We will have to find a new conspiracy theory.

I thought that was the right call. Brayshaw was going to kick and then pulled out of it but it was too late.

Razor won't be washing his hand for a month.

One of the funniest things that I have seen during a game.😀😀

I liked it just because of how much it wound up the Dogs’ box 😁

Very much so.

You could tell how chuffed the Raz was. I reckon he's following Gus around everywhere now, Cable Guy style.

The razer/Gus low five was an uplifting Footy Moment where our great game displayed its real values. Two participants recognising and acknowledging the lighter side of the game.

There should be more.
