Mid eighties it really started. A few games where they played real dirty. Never been forgotten or forgiven.
To put it another way, if my son or daughter brought home a Collingwood supporter I’d be annoyed but I’d get over it.

However, if they brought home a * supporter however there would be strong, strong words.

They would have to convert to Carlton before I’d let them into the family.

That’s what I thought as well. They didn’t get over that moment and I must admit I was surprised a player at his level quite obviously played for a free kick...
Yep, we complain about the standard of umpiring but give players a free pass when they exaggerate contact, drop at the knees, throw themselves forward etc.

It’s the biggest blight on the game and adds to the difficulty of umpiring it.

It’s crept into the game more and more, having evolved from the Selwood shoulder shrug / knee drop. Each teams have players that do it, Murphy being our worst.

With some teams it’s inherent, the Bulldogs are the class leaders.

If you go back and watch last weeks game almost all of their on-ballers (Bont gets a pass here) exaggerate contact, drop at the knees, duck into tackles etc.etc.

As an example, the Newman / McLean push in the back, it was there and should have been paid, but McLean after feeling contact deliberately folds his left leg to fall forward with outstretched arms. It’s blatant exaggeration, and I hope, the reason it wasn’t paid.

Bailey Smith, looks like really good kid, but he’s already doing it. Exaggerating, throwing himself backwards in the tackle. I don’t know if he did it in juniors? I believed he was hard at it (not normally the type to do it) but at the Bulldogs it evolves into their game.

It goes a long way in explaining the Bulldogs free kick differential, it’s systematic in the way they play.

Yeah this is a blight on the game no doubt!
I know Tippa is exciting to watch...but for those that bang on about him and how good he is I see this element in his game and I cant respect him purely based on this. Saw it again a couple of times in yesterdays game...the buckling of the knees to gain head high tackles...and from memory he didn't actually get free kicks for them which I am fine with.

It's almost funny, given the outcry when Jab Watson was booed during the drugs saga..

This in its complete entirety....if a club thinks of bringing Hird back as a coach then they get what they sow. It’ll be unrelenting
