has nothing to do with umpires.

you are never going to win a game of footy scoring 3 x as many points as you do goals.

We are an insipid team in the wet. Have been for years, we cannot play our brand in the wet.

One team was ablee to score in the wet and it wasn't us.
maybe if we had got 6 set shots inside 30 meters of the goals, say from free kicks, we would have got more goals.... just a thought.

Forward line has been invisible 2nd half, a lot of names there that have question marks over whether they will be able to improve us in coming years
Dogs midfield loving the wet weather who knows whether playing under the roof at Marvel may have made a difference but they have been well on top after quarter time
We'll see if Weightman is around in 5 years if he keeps playing like Toby McLean in 2016

Not here to sh*t stir, but some of those frees paid to Weightman that resulted in goals were the softest I can ever recall, particularly in a final played in those conditions.
Putrid umpiring!
I switched off the TV after Weightmanโ€™s 4th free, the โ€œpushโ€ on the boundary. If thatโ€™s the level of officiating thatโ€™s acceptable by the AFL in a final, theyโ€™ve got more problems than just Covid. Umpires have been garbage all year and youโ€™d hope only the decent ones get a gig for the finals but there just arenโ€™t any. The AFL have created these morons so nothing will come of it.

I donโ€™t think you can reasonably suggest that even an objective watcher could say that the 2 goals to weightman after extremely soft free kicks, the first against Draper and the second when he got โ€œpushedโ€ across the boundary line didnโ€™t have a massive impact on the momentum of the game when It was a tight contest and we were right in it.
