Come on. Deliberately poking an umpire in the chest. You don't do that these days. There's a charge in that.
Not trying to argue, but you might be looking at the wrong thing.

Watch again and look at Fyfe's back. You can see Cottrell's hand push him towards the ump.

I don't think anyone who's seen that part of the footage can argue 'deliberate'.

I’ve heard a lot of crap but Carlton fans telling me how good Pittonet is tops it I think 🤣🤣🤣🤣
I mean... TDK had a great game today but Pitto walks back into that side as clear first ruck. No superstar to be sure but was bloody important to our clearance game prior to going down, that tap TDK put down someone's throat near the end of the 3rd quarter - Pitto was doing that several times a game.

Waaaaaaaah waaaaaaah. Please give ma team attention.
Only in 2019 and 2020 with those 2 close but fluke wins in Perth.

Im not to gutted with freos Loss today.

Freos win in Perth against Carlton softened the blow.

The bigger issue is the AFL website trying to make something out of it.

Anyone with half a brain will realise Fyfe was pushed into the umpire - and he only raised his hand largely to protect the umpire and make sure he didn't fall into him. It was the epitome of umpire care, as opposed to anything malicious.

The rules as they stand - the person who pushed Fyfe is most likely to get a fine.

Freo pretty much were at full strength.
Um.... Debatable.....

Then again. I enjoyed rounds 3-8.

Sure some fringe players got covid and sat at home on the weekend. But it was a blessing in disguise rotating the fringe and 2nd tier players

I'd prefer Walters and Switta in the forward line, Chapman in the back 6 and Acres and O'Droscoll on the wings.

Having said that, I think Henry was pretty good today in parts. Think he could be a good high half/wing in time.

Eventually people will see as legit. I admit certain clubs do get a reputation for losing and it takes longer to see them as serious contenders. I was late on Richmond and Melbourne for this reason. So I can understand why some see us that way but we are the next real deal
We will see......

Seems clear to me that Fyfe gets a shove from behind and instinctively puts his hand up more as a protective action to avoid a bigger collision with the ump.

No case to answer IMO.


Just happy/relieved to get away with the win.
Doesn't bother me if Fyfe gets pinged or not quite frankly

He makes us a much much better team. He’s not a superstar world beating around the ground ruckman.
But his actual ruck craft is very good. He can navigate the other teams number 1 ruck and break even a lot better than Tom. Which in turn allows TDK to play fwd and to ruck against the oppositions 2nd. A little like the Gawn and Jackson relationship has been working.

I've always liked Freo and a number of Freo supporters on Bigfooty can attest to that. It doesn't change that Lobb has been heavily overpaid for what he's delivered his entire career.
Regardless if Lobb is overpaid or not.

I like this current Freo side. This Dockers side is good enough to make finals. Like Ross Lyons 2012-15 Freo finals side, the weakness is the forward line scoring.

I can accept Freo being a medium scoring side Kicking 11-14 goals a game.

I rather have freos current forward line "weakness" than the 2012-15 side.

That 2012-15 side was heavily reliant on ageing Kpf in Pavlich, a medium-sized Chris Mayne at CHF and Walters and Ballantyne up as small forwards.

The current Freo forward line.....

Rory Lobb and Taberner can play FF. Jye Amiss and Josh Tracey are both 190-195 cm and young too.

Walters, Frederick, Schulz and Switkowski can all play as smalls on a forward flank or on a wing

Actually thought Motlop showed a bit today.

Good kid. Has some set of wheels.

He's a bit lazy once he feels he's out of a contest, needs to work on his intensity and second efforts around the ground.

Something to work with though.

Weitering > Kemp
McGovern > Plowman
Cerra > Cottrell
Cuningham > Motlop
Williams > Newnes
Marchbank > Newman
Pittonet > TDK/Silvagni
Neither TDK or Silvagni are going anywhere to make way for Pitto, it'll be someone else. If available they'll play all 3, was working ok till Pitto went down (round 6 iirc?)

Just as an aside, I had the TV on mute today and could still hear Jono Brown's voice reverberating.

Is that all?
I just think it's weird. Most people are happy to discuss the game. It's just a bit of fun on the weekend.

For some reason you think starting shitfights is a better use of your time.

It just gets tiresome for the rest of us who can maturely contribute something without troll posting.

You spent most of the afternoon sooking about the umpires.
