Got pushed over at a ball up in front of geelong goal.

Guess who got a soft free

When I was a kid my Dad use to tell me never trust a bald man with a beard, especially if they were churchy.

(Hawthorn vs Geelong) Geelong win is very important, hawthorn have harder run home and so if they lose against Geelong and lose to Sydney in the last round, they could possibly miss out, Geelong on the other hand have a very easy run home with their last two games at home against freo and gold coast. this leads me to believe that Geelong will make the 8 easily provided they win today and Hawthorn could miss out. a draw would be the worst possible scenario, that means both clubs could move ahead of us is we lose, worst possible scenario. 

If Geelong win, it is quite possible cats and hawks end the season on 14 wins which means we’d miss the 8 if we only beat Sydney. So I’m on the Hawks 100%

(Power vs eagles) eagle win is also very important, port is on 48 with us and we can't catch up to the Eagles so we could possibly pull away from port should they lose. 

We can’t catch the Eagles hey.

 

amazing, you spent so much time doing a write up on a topic you clearly have no idea about. Port, the we beat Eagles, we are above them.

 

Do you need that repeated?

This is my issue... Christian when explaining the May bump on Curnow said that he went past the ball but because the ball was within 5m he was allowed to bump (so long as it wasn't high) - that has never been the interpretation. Once the player has disposed of the ball anything late is illegal. Christian changed the rule interpretation and I said it would come back to bite him.

3 weeks later it has. Brown should argue that that the ball was within 5m (it looked that way on TV) and the bump wasn't high therefore no case to answer.

But i don't think any of us think this is the right interpretation. Yet again the MRP stuffs up what should be a simple determination. I watch with interest.

This is blatantly wrong.  Plenty of people know that the rule has always been within 5m of the ball. It's not an interpretation, it is - and has been - the written rule. 

The is no such thing as "late". That is a common "interpretation" of how to judge the 5m rule.

After the ball is disposed of by Saad and is about 10 metres away from him and is just about to be caught by Tip-Mc, while Saad is looking at the ball, Nathan Brown takes 3-4 steps and bumps Saad, who didn't see him coming. The bump is illegal and the consequence is a factor. Brown will be suspended  

This is correct. 

The issue here isn't that it was after he had already disposed of it, it is that the force of the bump was significantly more than the player was expecting given: that the player had slowed, that he was not moving to a position to be involved in the next phase ofplay, and he was clearly not expecting contact.

In those circumstances, assuming the ball was within 5m, Brown could bump with lower force, e.g. sufficient enough to hinder Saads run towards the ball, but not such that he cleaned him up. 

 

Its really simple, and it's clearly in the rules.  I don't understand why some people don't get it.

So you don't trust big Maxy then? He is virtually bald. 

But geelong have an easy last 2 games, but if they lose today then they still sit outisde the 8. 

I see Hawkins has 1 goal 2. If he was playing us he would have 3 goals. But that was a good quarter by the hawks.

the eagles have an easier run home than us and i think that it would be extremely hard to catch the eagles,  however i do not disagree with your above statement, no need for the anger. 

also my post was just an opinion about who i think MFC want to win, you me and everybody on here is entitled to their own opinion no matter whether you think it is wrong or right.

So you think the MFC don’t want to finish second.

 

Again, it is not rocket science, if Port win at home, we then beat the Eagles (without a few of their stars - very feasible), then we have caught the Eagles, something you wrote as fact, not opinion...

Jumping between games, I've noticed that the Suns have employed their own bugler in their cheer squad.

Did they seriously not think that wouldn't lead to disaster? Buglers in football clubs = said club nearly becoming extinct.

Riewoldt might kick 14 today.

Is May playing on him? If so, wouldn't bode well for us to go after him.

Whateley and his agenda calling a "cheap shot." Gerard and his overreactions this year.....

Gerry Twatley, the Journalist Who Gets Everything Wrong, has such a bad nose for news he would be better off reporting on the Tattslotto results.

Talks up go nowhere nothing stories, and downplays actual important events.

If Jack Riewoldt is kicking bags against you, it's because there's zero pressure up the ground.

Hawthorn up again..fighting for a top 4 spot.

Thought they were supposed to be on their way down last year but alas their sense of entitlement continues.

As you can see my jealousy runs deep.

Yeah, but all 14 will be just junk-time goals. Even the one he kicked in the second minute...

I hope Geelong lose, my hate for them is fast approaching that of Richmond.

So many stagers. Also Dwayne's commentary.

They've been a good club for 40 years. At a certain point it's not luck.
