5-3 free kick count, 2 Of their 3 goals from free kicks, and the officiating is against them.

I’d be grateful we didn’t kick straighter before worrying about perceived bias
That one to Hawkins. If the roles are reversed would be a free to Hawkins.

2 separate 15m rules. 2 separate 50m rules.

Farce.

Going to script so far.

If Saints can get within 60 points it’s a moral victory.

Maybe 59 given Dangerfield and Blicavs are late withdrawals.

Oh right. So according to your words/logic, inherent umpire bias towards Selwood is demonstrated by the free kick metric?

I’ve said many times I think he gets too many free kicks. I don’t think it’s through bias I think it is through bad officiating.

What i wouldn’t do is look at the numbers and then try and make a claim that directly contradicts thise numbers like ‘Selwood should get more frees.’

Farce.


Based on what, the fact that he’s awarded less free kicks than just about any key forward over the last decade?

Media love crapping on with their “St Kilda haven’t beaten geelong in geelong in 23 years” crap, how many times have we played there in that time? Twice?

I still have no idea why Geelong get to host games on the ground they train on, no other team does.


Lol. Yes that’s what’s beating you. It comes as a surprise to players that there’s a white line at the side of the field. That’s why you keep turning the ball over in the centre of the ground.

Based on the fact it was a clear eyes off the ball block.


And how many times do you reckon defenders have done that to him and not been penalised.
Probably the second best key forward of his generation, and easily the biggest and strongest, and gets f*** all free kicks compared to his contemporaries.
