Are we just unlucky or do we do things that other teams don’t? How can we always be so far on the wrong side?
I don't get it personally. It's not like we are excessively aggressive or anything like that.

For me it's never so much the ones we give away, they are usually there.

it's the ones we don't get in return for the same thing or worse.

For me it's the inconsistency, if it's paid up one end of the ground it should be paid up the other end, but it's just not!

Anyone saying we should “get over it” should look at the large sample size,been going on for a very long time now.

This exactly.

There are very few unwarranted frees that we have conceded imo - it's just that the same level of adjudicating doesn't appear to be reciprocated. Marks not paid that seem to go the other way when 50-50, as well as "downfields" and "fifties". eg. If Jack takes that DeGoey screamer last night, he gets called for "hands in the back" etc.

If the club is not addressing this issue - either on-field at training or off-field through the AFL - then they are being derelict in their duty.

I've had to do some research on this but I believe it is the symbol meaning positive.

I had to ask jeeves to use it in a sentence for me as I didn't believe it initially.
Did Jeeves answer "Most Collingwood supporters, happen to be HIV+"?
