I honestly reckon we were pinged for head-high tackles about 20 times for the match and we only laid 41 tackles, so about one in every two tackles we laid resulted in a free against!Some of those head high frees were diabolical. Those umpires really need to be held accountable for the bad decisions and publicly shamed.. the free against Brad Hill on Jimmy Rowe in the last q was the worst. Rowe literally deliberately head butted Hill. But he'll get away with it, nobody even knows his name, back again next week to deliver more tosh in another game. A protected species.
It seems that the umpires favour the home sides. If the game was in Melbourne the free kick count may have been on the other hand. You got the win at the expense of Adelaide's poor composure, take it and get more wins.
