Well those sorts of games are very bad for my nervous disposition
Umpiring was abysmal
It wasn't so much the frees they gave Freo, but the complete disregard for our backs or necks
That free to Matera and the 2 x50m goals were just umpiring bastardry
Anyway, game wise I had Bowes best on and Chucky Ballard in the mix
Touk Miller is just a revelation this year
Boys looked weary at times
Good time to freshen the team up with a couple of changes
Fiorini will bring much more than Powell and Holman will have to make way for Rankine
Wouldn't be surprised to see Murdoch Mclennan C Ellis or even Dawson in the mix for a defenders role
Harbs won't be dropped, he was okay
Hoping Hanley was just a bad day at the office
Sam Day?Up and down as always- literally.fell over at least 3 times

These Umpires 😡😡😡
Bods is always pretty one eyed when it comes to umpiring. ALWAYS. Tonight, he was spot on though! They were terrible tonight and set the tone for a bad game early

Felt and looked really dry - far more so than our usual night games, did it come across as Dewy on the broadcast?
Was very mild temperature wise - was expecting to be freezing. Seemed perfect conditions for footy.
There was 100% a heavy Dew on the ground

This photo really illustrates that Dewy really has lost a decent amount of weight this year.

There was a really nice pressure act in the last quarter involving Collo Chucky and Luko
As they jogged away together they looked like a gang of thugs exiting the scene of the crime
Loved it

But hodge at Hawthorn was regularly thrown on the ball.. media hype about hodge in the backline was late in his career and at Brisbane.. was good seeing the 3 tonight creep up the ground
But he was also a superstar down back. Bowes is gonna be our Mr fix it for years to come

Holman is so underrated by some on here.
but I can understand why most of great stuff he dose you can’t see if you are watching on tv you have to be at the game live to truly appreciate him

I like his game

Positives: 12 touches at 83% (4 contested and a clearance)
4 tackles
4 marks

Negatives: No scoreboard. 2 free's against

Definitely far from the worst out there. I get the feeling he has a role and he is doing it well. But a lot of players not far behind
