Yeah I just edited. Point still stands though. Was a bewildering umpiring performance from the first bounce. Bombers were better and we got lucky overall, but there were some real shockers both ways, all night.Probably?
Now you know what its like to watch the tigers on G for the last few season. Every 50/50 decision only goes one way.But that "better overall" was significantly better when the free kick count was 29-15 and the margin was 3 points. It could have been the difference between a loss or a win tonight for Essendon. For this reason, it is important for umpiring to be consistent throughout the game and especially between the two teams.
Those saying Hickey had no prior have no idea how long it takes to get rid of the ball
Sure they did, they missed two fend and drops in our forward goal square in the first quarter.It is fair to say they did not miss any of Sydney's free kicks and found plenty more.
I'd say it's more likely to be clickbait.You know when channel 7 is posting it on their social media it was a bad decision.
We hardly ever win the free kick count let alone double the opposition in frees. You blokes like the cats in Geelong and eagles in Perth get a ride at home all the time.
I wish there was a bad call that stood out for us like there is for you.Yeah I just edited. Point still stands though. Was a bewildering umpiring performance from the first bounce. Bombers were better and we got lucky overall, but there were some real shockers both ways, all night.
Hickeys holding the man when his opponent just didn't stand up after the tackle was ludicrous.
