It has been the whole year where so many favourable calls go their way. Free kick differential kings. Opposition touch the ball and it is holding the ball as soon as tackled. Opposition trips over it is throwing the ball.

In return Collingwood players run around and have so much time to dispose of the ball and they are tackled, it is ball up. They throw the ball, and it is deemed knocked out in the tackle.

Is something fishy going on?

First to the ball pal

You need to watch more footy maybe with someone who knows something
Happy to educate you

Example Cox owed 20 free kicks at least

Blokes second to the ball dominant midfield that runs at players forcing reaction

Mihocheks clearly touched "goal" was at a critical moment. Fully expect Collingwood would have won regardless, they were better all night, but Giants have the right to be pretty aggrieved about that call, among a few others. The noise of affirmation, or lack of for GWS was clear in a few calls and non-calls.
Seeing it wasn't touched and Davis knows it

What lose you got

I’m not usually one to buy in on conspiracy theories and I’m a genuine impartial, possibly even slightly collingwood leaning but the boys in black and white got the run of the green to an outrageous degree tonight. At times it was farcical.
Word of advice

Once you defend your opinion prior to giving it

It shows you are

Then why is Richmond -120 and Collingwood +120?
BECAUSE AS SHOWED FRIDAY

YOUR TEAM IS SECOND TO THE BALL AND NEVER TAKE POSSESSION

15 examples of blokes trying to tackle the ball winner instead of winning the damn thing
Poor soft footy, not finals footy
and yeah you won a few games but it was obvious that your game style is basically different to others

A defence that blocks
A midfield that doesn't win contested possession , prefers to tackle
No second ruck
Undersized forwards who tunnell

How come that logic doesn't work when playing in Perth?

Eagles take on the ball in the air marking instead of spoiling, used to corral instead of tackle, often first to the ball. Hence won more frees and gave away less.

Pretty much exactly the same argument you are making here except Eddie and the Vic media had a different agenda. So the AFL caved in and flew in non WA umpires etc.

Style of play and being better than your opponent often means getting more frees. But for some reason that doesn't compute when in WA. Now Richardson is saying it isnt the noise its the lack of noise when the visitors deserve a free. The Silence of Affirmation?? WTF???

Tigers tackling and pressure game is risky and gives away more frees as does playing one ruck.
