We lost this mostly ourselves, honestly. Some shocking calls sure, but we just didnt have it today.

Does anyone know why they decided too stop paying holding the ball for 5 minutes? And apparently running in and tacking someone who has a free kick is OK, let alone the ‘protected zone’. What a shambles.

The ump called played on because he's a ******* moron before an ump off the play made the correct decision

Credit to Melbourne ultimately. Didn’t let us play our style of footy.

Cue two weeks of media led Daisy Pearce worship even though she was a complete passenger.

Melbourne media shattered they can't break up the Daisy Pearce worship by writing stories about the numerous injuries due to the poor surface.

Don’t think umpiring was that bad if you are second to the ball all the time. You can expect a few calls to go go against you especially in Aflw where they don’t tend to call htb as much

Problem was how our team strat today was to zone off and try to cut off the handball avenues which played into dees hands as no one wa going for the ball. This translated into territory control

We tried to change it late in the third and fourth but was too hard by then as the dees has their tails up and we could not flip the switch.

Yeah in hindsight we needed zimmies X factor as we needed her pace. But can’t fault starcevich for going for consistency

Frustrated by the fact we got our hands on it plenty then just kicked long straight into their defensive net time and time again with not intervention.

Dees were good but we had our chances.

Frustrating.

Umpiring was horrific.
