Can’t for the life of me work out why the AFL can’t make the umpiring a full time gig. 
 

do that and most of these crap umpired days disappear

To be fair I think that all 3 umpires were blind sided about that smack to the gob. We had the advantage of watching the TV where the cameras picked up the discretion in full view and most of the spectators also saw it clearly but all the umpires were busy looking away from the ball lest a Crow player might be being blocked or in some way impeded forward of where the ball might be going. It’s very understandable for games in Adelaide.

Great 12th win in hostile territory.

Mids were great and backs were intercept kings.

Kozzi was intimidating and got some help in that 3rd qtr.

Onto Mordor!

Mordor - that's funny!

I've got my ticket, can't wait for Thursday night. Looking forward to sitting and barracking shoulder to shoulder with two bays full of faithful Dees supporters at Mordor on Thursday night.

On tour with the family at the ground. Yes the roar of affirmation a factor, but absolutely incompetent maggotry all night. All the 50/50’s all the “technicals” went to the Crows  - none to us of course. Then Clarry’s head ripped off, Nibbler driven into the ground. Clown maggots miss those, “out of position” “looking around corners” etc. They are a joke and the AFL narrative will be built to around “respect”. You have to be joking. Maggots 31 and 20 were simply appalling.

So proud of our lads tonight: Clarry, Tracc, The Skipper, JJ, Weid, Rick, the list goes on. We are a good team, we play to a system, we respond when challenged, and most importantly we are fit and can run out games.

Over  and out from Adelaide! Go Dees.

Umpires were literally trying to blow the ball goalward with whistle - extraordinary tellie folks. Great win for mine. 

Clearly missing some height but was more frustrated with inaccuracy from goalsquare.

Now onto the tough ones......

Clarry is hard done by. The umps don't look after him, and not just this game.

Players hang off him before the ball arrives and he gets pinned for not disposing of the sherrin properly.  

For a champion player, he gets hardly any protection most weeks from the umps and has to play through being tagged and targeted. 

Can't see him getting the Brownlow votes he deserves, if they just don't see what he does, how he goes about it and his performance through the duress the opposition apply.

One of the toughest, fairest and most talented footballer for the Dees I've seen.

I care, had a gut full of biased interstate umpiring for the last 30+ years. For a multi million dollar industry it's F'n amateur hour

And the clowns at HQ say that these incompetents should be respected!

Gill and his acolytes are just full of spin.

I’m sure that the ova shoulder against May on their ff, on the fifty line 2nd qtr I think, was actually his own teammates arm across his shoulder, fmd.

It was clearly a Crows hand over Tex's shoulder.  Add to that the exaggerated head snap by Tex!  The club needs to send that in and highlight it.  They were baltantly trying their most to get the Crows into the match all night.

We need to compile a list of complete joke umpiring decisions. As bad as I’ve ever seen. 
 

I will kick it off:

 

1) Oliver whack to the head not paid high

2) Ben Brown’s clear mark tht was then knocked from his hands and called play on

3) Spargo’s tackle that was called holding the man, when it was a clear incorrect disposal 

4) Taylor Walker ruck contest 

5) Taylor Walker generally

Brilliant gutsy win missing huge structurally important players. Oliver, Trac, Viney Huge! Lever and Langdon back to their best! Forwards needed to take their chances more but we looked more dangerous again. Bring back Gawny and Jacko(🤞🤞🤞) and it’s our best 22 for Geelong. Let’s get a win for the ages!

Also that was the most flagrantly biased umpiring display I’ve ever seen, sie of the clear frees to us that we’re missed, or just basics like marks and out on the full were a joke. That’s the closest I’ve ever seen to requiring someone sort of inquiry for corruption. Ruined the spectacle of a great, tough game!

First game outside of Victoria and I have to say it was a ripper to watch.

Mens Department are immense, #3 & 17 are as important as #1, 35 & 8 and we bumped into Harry P on the way home from dinner still in his gear and looking very happy.

There is a different feel when travelling as our hotel was right next to the team's and we kept bumping into the players out and about. Walking distance to the ground was cream on the cake 

Great result in enemy territory but as soon as the game was over the locals went straight back to their hospitable selves. 

Great fun and go Dees 

(Definitely won't be waiting 59years for my next interstate game)

If that's the one I think it was, May was actually being held off the contest by a Crows player to allow Walker a free run at it.

Definitely the best game I've seen Petracca play since the opening rounds of the season. He's been slowly building over the last few weeks but his explosiveness looks to be back in full force and most of his disposals were either constructive or impactful. Likewise Langdon, who hasn't quite been at his best since his return to the side after he missed a week with injury. 

Our defensive performance was unreal today. Aside from Walker in the first half, none of the Adelaide forwards threatened the scoreboard. I think I heard the commentators mention that we broke our own record for intercepts in one game and came close to knocking off the all time record. Hibberd took Rachele to school while Petty was one of our big winners in the air. Bowey also returned to some of his best form, operating at 86% disposal efficiency.

Really loving the season JJ is putting together. Has an incredible work ethic and always looks cool in a crisis. Love that he's starting to shrug tackles to get into a better position to dispose the ball. His body strength looks to have come a long way this season.

Also, Oliver is simply unbelievable.

@Kent do you recognise that structurally we had some important players out?

We had 9 scoring shots more than them and won by 29 points...

There is probably 2 reasons and an outcome there that may help you make sense of your question.

 

Also, every team is going to go their hardest against us - full concentration, no complacency.

That game was a case in point where coaches opine that the free kick count is not a factor in winning or losing the game.

But as a fan it’s impossible to agree with this. Yes it’s a hard game to umpire, but it should be consistent and fair.

This was a stressful one, ended up watching at the Duke of Wellington in the city. First game I've seen this year with the sound off, it's pretty enjoyable I must say.

We started off with a bang and I think we all would have loved to just cruise on through and have a nice relaxing arvo/evening. But the Crows had other ideas and really matched us for intensity for quite a lot of this game really. It was a real physical contest you could see the Crows really trying to get stuck in and, quite a lot of dirty play I thought after the ball had gone out of bounds and things like that. I detest talking about umpiring but this one is way too hard to overlook, 23 free kicks to 9 their way. I watched this one with the sound off so I couldn't really tell if it was a crowd influenced thing but the majority of the Crows frees were very 50-50 while it really did seem like we needed to have our heads ripped off to get anything from the umps. A lot of throws in this game missed as well from both sides, but yeah seeing it down the middle as much as possible I just thought this was a terror night for the umps but in spite of all that we showed what a great side we are and were able to grit it out and pull off an amazing result! 

I thought Petracca really came to play today and his early goal really got the confidence up! Was getting sick to death of hearing about goal inaccuracy percentage this week so nice to see him hit the target. Thought his game overall was outstanding today, and quite often they had trouble laying a glove on him that's a 3 brownlow vote game. 

We move on to Clarry, boy oh boy I'm so glad we have this guy for the next 8 years! I still marvel at how easily this guy gets his hands free. 11 tackles as well, this game was definitely won at the coalface and Clarry never fails to turn up with the miner's helmet. Thought Jack Viney was really important in the second half, Ed Langdon best game since he took that nasty hit to the ribs he was back to his running machine best and that goal was amazing at such a crucial time! Gus put in a good shift again, he's got so much confidence with the ball in flight now. Lever was excellent against some of his old friends, May had a much improved game this week I thought that back 6 had it's moments early on but they are starting to get back to what we know and love. 

As I mentioned earlier, a real physical encounter and both sides looked totally gassed late in the game. Good to get the win but with that 5 day break I hope we can just bust on through, not sure how serious the Luke Jackson injury was I'd hope that he's an auto in. It's going to be a blockbuster down in Geelong and we really need to take a scalp in these next few games so come on the mighty Dees!

The majority of you can feel free to sook about the umpires.

Meanwhile all I can think about is getting  the 4 points without a recognised ruckman and watched 3 midfielders at the absolute top of their game.

Brilliant result tonight.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance.

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
