Post Match Discussion - Round 14

Pretty sad really

We were the better side most of the night.

Poor ball use inside 50 and biased umpiring cost us the four points in a brutal battle.

I would like the club to publicly question the block on Melksham, momentum killer that disgusting decision 

 

I counted 7-8 frees that were called the wrong way either against him, or not for him. He had a filthy run. 

And was super on form as well, should have kicked about 6.

Oscar absolutely terrible again.

Rubbish.  Murdered Dixon all night and was paid two of the softest 50 metre penalties in history against him tonight.

Could have and should have beaten them. The inside 50s were like early on this season. We need to get cleaner. Good effort and intensity - Jetta and Viney huge. Fritsch did some sublime things.

I believe we will still make finals.

Terrible umpiring mistakes killed our momentum and gave Port clear advantage several times. Disgraceful.

If the AFL are serious about improving the game in respect to fairness and equalisation, they MUST address the Adelaide, Perth and Geelong homeground umpiring bias, because it kills the game dead, and it did that tonight. Simply just not an even playing field.

How many goals did Dixon kick? 

Not the point. Oscar was woeful, all could see that

Melksham could have been shot out there and they wouldn't have given him a free kick.

We also lost so much momentum when Max wasn’t in the middle. Tim Smith barely got a finger on it all night.

He’s one of a number of fringers that don’t impact in big games.

29 more inside 50's. What a waste. Jeffy would have had a picnic out there. ANB totally useless.

Just could not buy a free or even the odd 50/50 in the last 45 minutes. From Wingards “I thought it was a mark” from 15, Melky’s momentum killing free against and 50, again by 15 to Brayshaws non Mark in the last 2 minutes. Need I go on?

Dumb comment - did you not actually watch the game?  Oscar's sloppy frees against were crucial in us losing such a tight game. He wasn't the only offender but he was terrible.

How could you possibly say we deserved to lose? We killed them in all aspects. The maggots literally got them over the line. 

I will not be watching the AFL anymore and cancelling foxtel until they fix up the complete inconsistencies with the disgusting decision making. 

Imagine explaining the rules to someone who watched that last quarter. It literally just shows they are run by the betting companies. Money talks and unfortusntly the league is not what we think it is.

Deserved to lose was a bit stupid,  should’ve just said selection cost us and was always going to.

So port set themselves for a big game - where willing to hurt a few , we need to get back to a last game philosophy.

No tomorrow.

Our contested marking around the ground was woeful. 

Tyson has played his last game

Hogan is totally lost...

Beaten by pressure again.....

Tough run home.....

That 2nd quarter decision was one of the baffling I have ever seen.

Kidding?  Nah.  Haters will see what they want to see.  Gives away a couple of dubious free kicks and he's had a 'woeful' night.  

His job is to shut down key forwards.  He smashed Dixon all night.  Job done.

I think we will probably scrape into the 8, and lose week one. 

Too many players who give us nothing under pressure. Jetta and McDonald literally bleed for us, while Petracca, Tyson, Hogan, Neal Bullen etc disappear. 

Losing Lever was the end of our season. 

I hope we make finals to get over that mental hurdle, but sadly we are nowhere near good enough to impact in September. 

A brave effort. 

Agreed @Jaded. I'm disappointed but not throwing the baby out with the bath water. 

We are judging ourselves against round 11 expectations not against preseason expectations. At the start of the year "8-5 with 127% and just pushed Port to 10 points against shitty umpiring" we'd be stoked.

We need to play finals, and we should given the games left and the way we played in 7 of the last 8 matches. We might not finish top 4 but st haven't played finals in 11 years; I don't think we need to be disappointed for not skipping the expected step (finals) and jumping to top 4 straight away.

Utter garbage. Find something else to blame. WTF.
