Lots to love about how we played today. It stung to not be able to get over the line but it matters little in the bigger picture. For 3 quarters the boys showed each other what they’re capable of and how it’s slowly coming together. This will just make them even hungrier next week.
I hope so. Was a great effort.

The umpire has to deem he is deliberately trying to hit it out of bounds.

I would argue he is trying to hit it to prevent Greene from taking possession. The ball going out of bounds is a result of him spoiling Greene from taking possession, not him looking to get it out of bounds. Under the AFL’s interpretation the only choice Turner has it to let Greene take possession, because the could only go in that direction.

It was an umpire gagging to give GWS the ball, pure and simple. I’ve seen players do the exact same thing millions of times and never be penalised.

He is competing for the ball, not trying to deliberately trying to fist it over the line.
It doesn't have to be deliberate any more, it just needs to be "insufficient intent to prevent the ball going out of bounds."

It is however a bit of a rough call because plenty of others like it get nada.

Also, judging intent is a horrific thing to try and get umpires to do, but that's a whole other story.

I judged the umpires intent. It was that he saw it as the perfect opportunity to give GWS the ball for something that never gets penalised.

That intent was clear to see.

I guarantee if that was Greene fisting the ball from Turner, it’s a throw in.

just thought I'd come over and say commiserations and gee those umpires were bad and you blokes were unlucky but you have list issues and you need to deal with this player and that player...........cause this is what that moron snake baker does on our site and every other losing club site on the board - I don't know if he wasn't hugged as a child or what but I'm just wondering what you people think about his continual intrusion onto other boards - especially after they have just lost? thoughts?

Getting over the disappointing finish by realising, that before the game started, I thought we might lose by 5 or 6 goals, given that the game meant so much to GWS.
The other positive is that one of today’s teams is on the way up and one is on a downward trajectory.
Confidence in the ‘process’ is improving.
Should have played Jake Edwards in the forward pocket (only joking - he was concentrating on his homework).
