GWS will beat the Pies and then shat the bed against the Tiggers

As for the Lions, they are will fall back in 2020 to where realistically deserve to be 6-10 mid ladder range
I'm predicting 4-6 for them. If they can get more experience, especially in tough games, it would still be a step forward.

Disgraceful! how do three umpires miss this when the stakes are so high! blatantly cheating!

One of Brisbane's last goals was a hand off not a handball so swings and roundabouts

Looks like I was beaten to the punch anyway above. I knew Brisbane would lose as soon as Hipwood and Raynor did smell the cheese celebrating their goal. Mind not on the job. Frustrating to watch.

I just hate how Umpires can miss such obvious throws, how is it that it keeps creeping in the game? I mean neither of the two above where in congested packs. is it there positioning? are they really that blind and stupid?

It’s the positioning but that’s hardly the umpires’ fault. They can’t cover every angle when it’s 3 of them at ground level. The cameras with the higher viewing angle and from multiple vantage points have a better view than the umps generally though sometimes the umps are in a sweet position better than anyone.

Because the AFL hierarchy have told the umpires to let the game flow
As long as you are attempting to get rid of the ball, it doesn't matter
If you actually handball it or not,,, sucks I know, but that's how
The AFL role

Was a comical night of umpiring. I wouldn't really say any bias but enough for both sides to feel hard done by at various times. Seemed over officiated to me.
