the problem, which is obvious to all but hasn't been stated, is that the umpire thought it was an up and under and so called not 15 off the boot. It's a perfect example of why the umpire shouldn't be announcing that call until the ball is actually about to be marked

Until a player marks a kick that goes 12 metres, doesn't give the open hand off because he thinks it's a mark due to the non-call, gets tackled by the opposition and people b*tch the umpire should've called it earlier.

I'm actually happy to see Swans get the chocolates there. Is worth it to see Chris Scott get all riled up over anything really. And that serial ducker Selwood. Lions were robbed against Cats in round 2. Karma.

It's still comical that Collingwood traded out their first round pick, could of had a gun mid with Daicos to sling shot the rebuild.

Instead GWS gave them 3 Magikarp for Collingwoods 1 Charizard.
