Devon smith didn't allow jordan a clear run ahead for his girst 50. So ump pinged hom 50 correctly for the second 50. Turning point moment.

And he doesn't shut up anyway.

And the booing at the ground was the best/worst I've ever heard.

Bombet fans victim complexes possibly.

The first 50 was 100% there. I was yelling 50 - just as it was paid.

The second was for abuse.

Complete lack of discipline

Devon smith ran with the 50 and did not move out of the zone once he arrived at its point, a clear and blantant 2nd 50m penalty f'n stupid football by Devon.

Clear and simple.

they are absoluting losing it over at bomberblitz.... claiming a matching fixing conspiracy with the umps now....

that soccer goal from harrison jones was 50/50 at best and looked over the line before he connected from the goal camera, just one of many examples that went their way...  anyway

suck it up dreamers....

That may be the case but as I couldn't get a ticket I had to watch it on TV.

And when they replayed it you could hear the umpire tell Smith it (the second 50) was for abuse

Yep, he definitely paid the second 50m for abuse. Rutten even mentioned it in his presser.

Perhaps the grumpy Essendon fans should watch the AFL site’s post game highlights video - shows 7 of Essendon’s goals, to just 5 of Melbourne’s goals. Watching those highlights they’d think that Essendon actually won the game, humouring their delusional mindset.

I was comfortable with that goal. The ball has to be all the way over the line before it is a score. So as long as some part of his foot touches the ball before the ball is all the way over I think that's in the spirit of the rules (I don't know of technically the ball needs to leave the footy to be considered a kick).

That was clearly a point - surely the ball has to have left his boot before it crosses the line?? Of course with the crappy cameras the AFL is working with you don't actually see anything, just a blur of yellow. Amateur hour.

If you look at the whole game, which I just did on replay after getting home from the G, the holding the ball was adjudicated the same way all night. There were several examples of Essendon players inside our 50 in the first quarter being pinged exactly the same way. There is no prior, they’ve attempted to dispose, it’s play on! There was one Essendon player who was caught in front of our goal and drop kicked it, play on. 
 

then after they’d booed so much they spooked the umpire into paying the one against Kozzy, which was blatantly high! The umps were scared to pay anything but holding the ball.

 

there was one against TMAC, who executed a chase down tackle on the edge of the square, punt rd end, the bloke drops it cold and rather than paying the free kick for dropping the ball, he pings TMAC for holding the player too long in the tackle.

 

the Petracca non decision in the last quarter was close to a sling tackle. No, In fact it was a sling tackle. He also had no prior. 
 

they can huff and puff all they like. They drove the narrative the entire game. From the first bounce. They booed everything. The commentators are sucked in by it. It becomes the narrative. Then the TV audience believe it.

What all this shows is that Essendon had to rely on sensational, low % goals and every marginal umpiring free kick to keep them competitively in the game. 

We controlled the game through our superior defense when they had the ascendancy (thanks to May, Lever, Hunt, Hibbo & Co) and were able to break down their defense and punish them on the scoreboard when we had the ascendancy, despite the lack of a clearly dominant permanent forward on the night - it's what good teams do and marginal ones can't do consistently.

That's the lay of the land right now Bombers supporters.  Suck it up and shut up.

I would have thought so too, even if you are allowed to kick it before it is still half way over the line, by the time it leaves the boot it will likely already be more than halfway over the line....

i guess my point is the digital or camera review has such poor resolution you wouldn't be able to conclude one way or another, so the original decision stands, unless it can clearly be seen to be an absolute howler....

So if it was ruled a point initially by the umpire, that decision would have equally stood

I would have loved a more commanding performance. Failing that, a scrappy win with some dubious umpiring was my second choice, just so we could hear the sooking from the Essendon fans. Honestly, they complain every week. They are something else.

The rule used to be that your foot couldn't be connected to the ball as it crossed the line. WTF happened to that?

you had to poke your foot at the ball and it couldn't cross the line.

 

can anyone enlighten me if that rule has changed?

if we had kicked for goal just a little bit accurately we win by about 30 points

there was a point there in 3q where we missed 3 fairly easy set shots in a row

44 i50s to their 33

back line may have won it bit fwd line had the opportunity to put it beyond question

Devon has brain fade form and not just with his present Club.

The Umpires are now demonstrating that if the Rules are consistently applied throughout a game, and, for the rest of the season it actually works to their benefit and the AFL image for the rest of the year..

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees.

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t
