Dogs ran all over you, in the last quarter.

You can't possibly think that you had the legs, to overrun them?

Even if Hannebery was paid the free kick, he still would've been injured.
I tend to agree about that GF being the worst umpired final I’ve watched and Sydney were on the end of a lot of the bad calls.

It’s a strange world when Collingwood and Richmond fans agree that essendon were hard done by by the umpires. Is it because we love essendon or maybe just maybe we all saw the same thing?
Enjoy the win Sydney. You almost lost to a bottom 4 side.

Well same sh*t tonight then aye. We destroyed Essendon all game on contested and uncontested possessions. Should've put them to bed, and a handful of freekicks around the ground would've made no difference to us dominating tonight.

I must've been watching a different game. Destroyed them, all night? If that's the case, contested and un-constested means jack sh*te. I think the handful of free kicks was VERY costly.

yeah you are right. Spot on

your DOUBLE free kicks count wouldn’t have had any impact on the 3 point score line, especially when one of those free kicks should have be paid against hickey the dying seconds.

quality commentary and utter domination for the swans rofl
So you think that hickey one would've resulted in a goal? There was 20 seconds left and the ball would've been at half back. Lol. Funny how you're forgetting the two very clear over the shoulder tackles on gulden and McInerney which would've both ended up in shots on goal directly in front.

And no, I don't think if you were awarded half your freekicks that you want so bad that it would've made any difference to the game. You got out clearances, outcontested, outuncontested, and outnumbered at every contest around the ground when the ball was in play. We dominated the game when it was running, not even including the stoppages you speak of.

Came here to see discussion on the game.

But it’s all keyboard warriors arguing free kickcounts and some crazy umpire bias conspiracy’s....

yeah they didn’t have a great night, but it wasn’t the only difference. In a 2 point game could have been 20 different things to change the match.

In a game where I would normally lose hair, I was actually very comfortable because we were dominating everywhere. Go look at the stats. I was genuinely expecting for us to kick away towards the end. We were our own worst enemy.

No, it was definitely the one free which could have been given 120m from the Essendon goal which won us the game.

I don't need to look, at the stats. I watched it, through un-biased eyes. Stats don't mean everything. Ess more than held their own. You make it sound like they were 50 points down, and tried to claw it back. They were in major winning positions, for long periods.

Essendon were very good would of beaten a lot of teams tonight, blocked the corridor and forced us to kick long to a pack.

They were in winning positions because we didn't put them to bed. And yes bad kicking is bad football, but we dominated that game inside and out. We should've kicked better and put them 50 points down before the end of the 3rd. That was nothing but a percentage loss for us. We were never going to lose that game.
