I know we are all meant to take it easy on the umpires, so to keep it fair, I will just say they were pathetic. They somehow contrived to give Carlton frees that were not there and at the same time, deny the Saints frees that were there.

Back to the country league for these  three.

Or maybe...should've gone to Spec Savers!?

Hill and Paddy make Stk a far better side, and maggots make Blues a better side but this is cancelled out by brain fades..

Blues lost on the scoreboard, but won 21 - 9 on the free kick count.

Despite that, the booing by their fans was outta control.

Always brilliant to see Carlton lose.

McKay is a deadset muppet. Kick a drop punt, you joker.

Carlton 12+ on the free kick count. Won't see a more one sided umpiring display than that.

Carlton are still an ordinary defensive transition team. If their mids aren't on top, they leak goals. (yes, I know they were missing key talls)

Hill vs Walsh was interesting. Hill killed them, Walsh ineffective. They gambled on each other. If you make Hill accountable, you can really exploit him defensively the other way. Terrible coaching from Voss.

There's no way our half forwards would let Sinclair, Hill and Wanganeen run around like that. Just about every time St Kilda had a stationary ball at half back, one of those three guys would run around the back of the kicker and handball receive. The good sides don't allow that. 

Anyway, excellent result. I still harbour a small hope that Carlton miss the finals altogether.

Carlton are the HQ and media hype team. The umpiring advantage they get is to be expected. Vince McMahon has more integrity.

I sent my sister who is a fanatical Carlton supporter a text in the last quarter saying the umps doing everything they can to get Carlton over the line. Her response OMG are you f______ kidding me. I love my sister but boy it’s so easy to hate that club. They could well pass Essendon as my most hated club in the next couple of years if they actually win a premiership.

Totally agree...and Brian says you know this is one of our very best Umpires adjudicating. Sadly doesn't know inches from yards..

I recall us playing WC in Perth some years ago, where in the first half the frees were about 20 nil their way, then we got our only free in the first half, a few seconds before half time. It didn’t improve in the 2nd half.

We have had shocking runs against the Dogs, Pies and Blues several times.

Yep and when we finally did get the free, half the muppets in the mainly Eagles supporting crowd booed the umpire who paid the decision.

And don’t expect much better from the umpires today before the parochial Crows fans today.

I counted at least 3 frees to Curnow and McKay for 'holding', near or inside the 50m mark.  In each case they were holding each other.  One to Curnow was really late in the game and had he goaled Carlton would have lead. 

Curnow and McKay have learnt to hold/lock arms with their defender and then go to run forward without letting go and it looks like they are being held.  

Blues now only 9 behind Bulldogs on the 'Free Kick Ladder'!

Yes - I’ve noticed and it sucks in the umpires often.

Gotta feel for the umpires here. They’ve done everything they could do, but it just wasn’t quite enough.

Managed to get every emoji bar the face palm, well done.

The amount of 10 - 12 meter kicks that were allowed as marks was astoundingly poor judgement from too many of the officials tonight.  If they got a third wrong i would understand.  Had to be at least half this evening.

Then in the last quarter they called a 20-metre kick in the Saints backline "not 15".

Sometime they'll end up putting a grid on the field to help adjudicate it because the umpires' estimations are so bad. The goalposts are 7m apart, so it's only twice that plus a metre.

And there were several 'marks' paid to Carlton where the commentators said the ball hadn't travelled 10m let alone 15!  Helped change the momentum toward Carlton.

Thankfully, the Saints just kept going and fighting then prevailed, regardless.

Nearly 50 years after Australia went metric, I would be most surprised if umpires in their 20's and 30's were still operating in Imperial measurements. 😕

Just watched the last qtr of the Saints game and besides the crazy free's to Carlscum their fans vacated their seats faster than  deckchairs on the Titanic. Their booing is second only to Westcoast fans. Ignorant nuff nuff's.

Ominous start from the Swans

Was hoping they would lose today. Their record is very good at the G would prefer them to finish as low as possible so we're less likely to end up playing them there

Swannettes will finish top 4, barring injuries 

Will be a very tough September opponent

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air.

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
