the free kick was for the opposing ruckman putting his hand out in the ruck contest to stop BBB going up - you cant do that... what happens after that is just theatre.. move on
If not paid a free to BBB then it would have been holding the ball against the Adelaide ruckman anyway I believe it was Jed that bitch slapped the bloke to the ground with a driving NRL tackle.

They removed the prior opp in the ruck rule this year I think.

Tim Watson brought it up on Sen this morning. These * campaigners trying to manipulate the umps for Friday
Excellent that this is getting some traction and the timing is superb from Tim and BJ. As difficult as it is for former players to speak without fear or favour, this sort of shit (whether it's JoeD, LLoyd, Lindsay Thomas or Ben Brown) needs to be called out - blight on the game!

Nah, backmen scragging players is a blight on the game. It’s not Browns fault he’s 200cm and the only way defenders can stop him is by holding, illegally shepherding him out of a mark or chopping his arms. If the umps cracked down on that we might actually see forwards kicking bags again. Might even see 100goal seasons come back.

Anyone ask JoeD or Lordo to be a 'man' when they flopp/ed around like the Godfreys wind doll?

Long way to go in this transition to media land is the Floggster

He won’t make it. He’s got about 3 years max. Think of all the ex players that actually make a career out of the media. There’s about 10 and most genuine stars. He’ll be gone once Danger, Selwood, Lewis etc retire. Then they’ll be gone when the next lot come through.

No one likes him, no one respects him. The fact he promoted a beteasy podcast that about 8 people listen to speaks volumes.

The fact Browny is loved by his teammates and respected in the wider AFL must really grate on Floggard. He never achieved either.
Oh so that's why he was awarded life membership at Essendon despite not qualifying under any of the usual measurements, and the AFLPA Madden Medal for on-field excellence, personal development and growth, as well as community spirit over the course of their playing career. Nah, can't be loved by his team mates or respected by the wider AFL community if he got those honours :think:

......because you're a shit club.

An honor based upon character from the EFC is akin to being nominated as pedophile of the week.

Can somebody who twitters let Goddard know his mum is loose on Bigfooty?

Ah but that wasn't a qualification. Regardless of your opinion about our club, it was said he wasn't well liked by his teammates or respected in the wider community. That is categorically incorrect.

He got life membership at Essendon for standing up as a spokesman for a club convicted of drug cheating, when everyone else who could have looked like a leader was out of the game for a well-deserved break. Can see why they appreciated it but honestly, the rest of us are hardly likely to applaud it the same way.

You only have to read the "community" to know that he's a subject of regular ridicule & derision, and I don't care what his own team mates think of him (despite his very public run in's with them)

Now go put the kettle on and make yourself a nice cup of tea Mrs Goddard.

I have noticed that none of you have a retort for the aflpa award. Funny that.
Ok, I will. The AFLPA lost all relevance, except as a collective bargaining puppet, that time they decided a club instituting a program of banned and experimental drugs wasn't something they needed to be concerned with. The AFL sees the profit in Essendon's public rehabilitation, the AFLPA is just another PR arm of the AFL, so if Goddard got a pat on the head from them that's hardly newsworthy.

He may be a senational bloke in many ways. He's also a crap commentator who made and then doubled down on a shit assertion about a genuinely top quality player and person in Ben Brown.

All accurate except the bolded. Even Mrs Goddard doesn't think he's a sensational bloke.

He only won the award because the inanimate carbon rod didn't retire at the same time.
