Umpiring is bull [censored] !

It is [censored] up the game !!

Umpire #15 and umpire #22 (was not umpiring the Feral / Freo game) in my opinion are the two stand outs for incompetence.   

I get the impression from previous posters that umpire 22 does Melbourne no favours but I reckon #15 might just pip him at the post.  He has a history of making controversial decisions late in games.

Poor umpiring decisions have certainly impacted a few games this year. (but if it cost the Ferals a victory tonight, can it be all that bad?)😉

Annoyed, Jackson has the chance to kick Maynard in the face when he smothered his kick in the goal square.

I want to like this, I really do.

Sneaky chance we can go 4th, if GWS beat the cats and if we win and gain some percentage it can happen, that would be a great weekend for us tbh. Carn the giants.

Loving the anguish over a free paid against Cwood because they didn’t return the ball correctly. Seen it paid against us plenty - most recently when it was returned to the wrong player - and no commentator gave a hoot.

I work with a rusted on Swans season ticket holder and he hates going up there because nobody watches the game. They're all constantly going to the bar, talking or looking at their phones. They also like getting tarted up like they're going to the theatre. Swans games are an occasion to be seen at, not to see the Swans, apparently. 

You’ve just described the MCC

Good to see Corey Wagner getting a run.

Good luck to him.

Changed the game!!! His run and carry and kicking actually started the change in Freo getting momentum. 8 possessions in a qtr.  75% efficiency

Re the free for not handing ball back, a caller to SEN post game said his son was at the game listening  to the in stadium commentary and apparently it picked up the umpire telling Pendles earlier being warned that players weren’t handing the ball back quick enough (ie time wasting).  Puts a different paint job on the “controversy”. See if the AFL come out and out Pies back in their box (cage).  Could be deliberate tactic by Pies and they have been caught out. They should have other officials running the clock like basketball and  make it black and white when the clock stops and starts (ie in the rules) and remove the need for field umpires to call time off and on.  Such an antiquated system and so not necessary.  Move with the times AFL.

Pies were umpired to a flag = Pies fans think umps should favour them forever. The sooking is hilarious. What a bunch of wankers.

Can't be time wasting if it's a ball up because the clock stops. Maybe they believe it's a tactic so they can get their defensive set up right.

Leaving aside Nichols decision I count at least 5 times in Collingwoods last dozen games they've been helped by a contentious umpiring decision ( twice) or a opposition player missing a clear chance missing a shot to win the game. Don't tell me they're not lucky.

Getting tired of the subject of extra time being on the agenda purely because Collingwood have played in a few lately.

The only instance where OT should be considered is in finals. Regular season who cares really.

It's exactly why they do it. If McRae wants shorter games........

What a great way to start Saturday 

pies choking apparently and a controversial free against them. Lovely.  Turned it off when they were about 18 points up and going away, 

What a great way to start Saturday ,

And they're back in the percentage game now! Where all those close (= lucky?) ones can bite them again! Ha!Ha!

Now, who's gonna deliver the same to Essendon?...

Careful, JJ; that sort of vocalising preceded our Weagles *cough* 'win'...😏

I just don't see why there has to be a result in the home and away season and only 4 points for a win handed out. I know the players work hard for 2 hrs and it's a weird feeling all that sort of rhetoric but it adds a element to the game that few others have. 

I would have been thrilled to snatch a draw against Carlton in a similar fashion to what Freo did.

If they don’t know the rule about handing the ball straight to the umpire, they probably aren’t aware either that the clock has stopped, so it’s no use time wasting.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 19 vs Fremantle

    It's Game Day and the Demons have a golden opportunity to stamp their 2024 finals credentials as well as make amends for their disastrous first meeting against the Dockers earlier in the season when they take on Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne

    The Demonland Podcast will not be LIVE again this week. Binman will do his regular stats files segment for the game against the Bombers and will also preview the upcoming match against the Dockers. He will not be taking any questions. I will post the show here once I receive Binman's stats files. You can also find it wherever you get your podcasts from. We will return in our regular format once I return after the Dockers match.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    It’s game day and the Demons face a massive test which may determine whether they have what it takes to play finals this season. The task has been made all the more difficult without their Premiership Captain Max Gawn.
