Not remotely suggesting old mate knew at the 15 min mark of the last qtr that the extra 25 secs would let the lions score enough to sneak into 4th but that honest mistake has cost the dogs 4th place and the double chance. We might need that chance the way we’ve been playing 😉

Lions were 1 point out of the 4 until 20 secs to go scored a point.

Will it be investigated?
Do the dogs have any opportunity to appeal?
Should it be looked at?

There’s a whole season worth of errors that could be looked.

What cost the Dogs 4th was the Dogs losing their last 3 games of the season
Exactly

The Bulldogs only have themselves to blame for going from top spot to 5th.

I could cry conspiracy until the cows come home with Hawthorn in the lower end of the ladder. But as it turns out, it you play rubbish football you get beaten a lot.

No that’s what cost us first or second.
This wasn’t our error it was an officials.
You were 3 goals up deep into the third quarter on your home deck last night....And this was after you’d already lost your previous two matches. Nobody else to blame but yourselves.

No doubt, also not relevant to an officials error. Without that mistake we still finish 4th. Despite our poor finish to the season.
sure we should have won last night tokeep our destiny in our own hands.

True. We let the lions decide our fate. But needing an extra point to skip us they were given extra time. That’s the question, not us shitting the bed.

Btw I’m not calling it a conspiracy. I said i felt it was an honest mistake. But that mistake might cost us dearly. Should it be looked at?

And do what? Play the game again? Remove the last 7 points from the lions score? Change the ladder?

That would be ................

Appeal? Lol. How about we appeal the free kick differential advantage you guys have been kissed with all season and see if you guys even make the 8 without it.

Respectfully - no, no and no..!!!

Sadly, this is yet another typical AFL media click-bait story in the same vein as the grass was too long, players ate sour oranges at half time and the goal posts are too high...
