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.

    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

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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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

    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

    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
