Mate, this is going to be my last post on the matter.

Go back through and read the posts in the game day thread yesterday during the match. It was a clear thought that the Dogs were getting a significant rub of the green, the only ones who didn’t agree were Bulldog supporters.

Agree to disagree, I don’t give a fu** as it’s not going to change the result.

For the third time, best of luck next week. 👍🏻
The poll at the top of the page says 58% who voted predicted the Bulldogs would win. Only 40% Brisbane. So Brisbane winning would have been a travesty, the majority agreed.

The good news is without Lachie Neale next year you won't get close enough to us to incorrectly blame the umpires when you lose. Everybody wins. Except Brisbane.

Hopefully this clears up any confusions as to which team benefitted from the umpires on Saturday night and guess what?? Surprise surprise... it wasn't the Bulldogs. Brisbane got an armchair ride... now go off lick you wounds and stop making excuses...

I think the problem is the way we refer to umpire's decisions as 'FREE' kicks.
There's nothing free about them.
In just about every other sport they are referred to as PENALTIES and thus the focus is on the perpetrator rather than the person that is getting a 'FREE' kick. It's why Essendon panicked and gave away all those free kicks to Weightman the other night and suddenly Weightman is the villian??? That makes no sense. The kid doesn't duck or dive and anyone saying he does needs to actually watch him play.
People will argue and look to the decision where he was pushed out of bounds. Obviously not a free kick but that was one howler and now the kid gets death threats??
The reporting should have been that Essendon had 4 penalties handed out to player 1, 2 and 3 and then supporters can vent their rage on the person from their own team that has let all their teammates down not the young gun getting to the ball first and trying to make the play.

Never ceases to amaze me how dogs supporters revel in the embarrassment that is umpiring. Dogs people on here are jumping for joy at being handed a win they did not earn. They do not win tonight without umpiring assistance but that's been a common them all year.

Condolences lions fans, hopefully your club grows a pair and takes the AFL and this result to court to have it overturned.
It never ceases to amaze me how bitter St Kilda supporters are towards the doggies.

When a team wins/loses by 1 point umpiring decisions come into it. You could say Brisbane should have been better so umpiring didn't make a difference, but same could be said for Bulldogs. If Bulldogs were better then they wouldn't have needed umpiring decisions to be the difference but they weren't and the decisions were the difference

I’m happy to believe the views of those watching the game and not someone from reddit. It literally says at the end that Lions fans were a bit hard done by as well. Not a very supportive argument on your end.
No, what it says is that they were hard done by with regards to Young illegally stepping outside of the centre circle 7 times.

When the booing drowns out the winners song you know the umpiring was bad.
This is post of the year!
A travelling, underdog team in hostile territory wins a thriller and you come up with that theory?
Have a read of this you clown. Should set you straight if you can possibly open your other eye to read it.

Well there you go. You won't be convinced by anything will you. Bravo for being so one-eyed you can't see reason.
Keep banging on about it supported by your one-eyed loser mates

We could go on with this all night, I’m not gonna go back through the replay to pinpoint moments, one that comes to mind though is the Bont getting paid a mark over Oscar who had first hands to it and his jumper literally 500mm off his body in the hand of English.

You know you got every 50/50 call and we didn’t, anything that could give you an advantage was paid and anything that could give us an advantage wasn’t.

Enjoy the rest of the finals 👍🏻.
Sorry just thought I'd pop my head in to this convo and say you are a pathetic sore loser and your whole argument is based on an illusion of bad umpiring. Read this and weep loser:

I’m not gonna comment on this because I assume it was during the Bears merge? I was too young to understand what was happening during the merge.
The 2016 flag is literally asterisked by everyone except Bulldog supporters. At the end of the day though, every supporter would do what the Bulldogs are doing and refute the claims and bury their heads in the sand, I’d do the same - we all look through our team coloured glasses - except last night 80% of the community is looking through the Lions glasses.
Anyway, onto the future - gotta go speculate on the Neale go home factor now.
Good luck next week 👍🏻.
There is no asterix next to the 2016 flag which was won by 22 points - quite comfortably in the end.
The asterix only exist next to Carlton's flags during the 70's and 80's but you are obviously too young to remember.
Have a read of this and educate yourself instead of getting so caught up in the emotion of losing a close one.
This will set you straight and don't bother thanking me, it's my pleasure:

I’m loving the reposting of some random blokes umpiring thoughts on the weekends game. The thoughts of the majority stand out, as per the game and when it happened. The thoughts of the majority are that the Lions were robbed of a fairly umpired game.

End of the day you guys are proceeding into the prelim, nothing is going to change that. In a lot of people eyes if you do manage another premiership it’s going to be asterisked just like your last one because you have had some serious umpire assistance in 2/2 finals games so far. You don’t have to be happy that the majority think that, but I reckon deep down you somewhat agree otherwise you wouldn’t be here fighting it so aggressively. Be like the Bulldogs supporter I watched the game with - acknowledged you definitely got the rub of the green but also said suck sh*t we won! Just acknowledge that you got assisted by the umpires.

At the end of the day you’re not going to though because what supporter base would? Everyone thinks their team is the best and doesn’t need umpire assistance.

Enjoy the rest of the finals series, hopefully you get knocked out this week and we won’t have to have two Bulldog asterisked premierships, but if you do go all the way I’m content with forever referencing both of your premierships as asterisked and I’m sure many others are too. :)

Have a good week 👍🏻.

Cool story bro, don't care.

And for the love of dog, learn how to multi-quote.

Straight sets. Again.

You wouldn’t have been top four without a timekeeping error. Note that I’m saying it was an error - not deliberate, not a ******* conspiracy - an error. When that happened the vast majority of dogs fans shrugged and blamed our own poor form for missing the top four.
They dropped 2 games because of sh*t umpiring. They were always a top 4 team.
