fu** there’s something nice about Collingwood being sh*t
Not only this but one of the reasons they’re sh*t is because they lost their defensive line coach to some team in the west. I hear they’re going alright these days.

I get it but some heat has to go onto the club as well. They knew about his issues and brought him anyway when we weren't in a position to allow him to succeed.
The club didn't want him but they did what they felt was the right thing anyway with hogan on his knees and the media and fans slamming freo with pressure to get him. It didn't work, it is what it is, there's nothing we can do about it. This is one we just have to move on from and stop playing blame game on Freo/Jesse etc.

Geelong gets saved time and time again by umpires. Boo hoo. Win the game by kicking straight. 12.16. Yeah blame the umps.
Selwood melting was delicious. Didn’t get his weekly high tackle free

Bad umpiring is bad umpiring. I enjoyed the result too but surely you can't be protecting Nicholls there. That was absolutely diabolical the last two minutes. I'd be very peed off if that happened to us. Completely swayed by the home crowd.

Dunno if he called touched but you can definitely hear the ump calling play on while the ball was in the air. That is if this is the clip you are talking about.


I’m a total neutral with no preference for either club. I just want to see a better standard of umpiring all round.
I have seen several fans online on Twitter and even BF saying the umpire called “touched - play on”
That’s Donald Trump levels of fake news and delusion.

The umpire CLEARLY shouts PLAY ON NOT FIFTEEN about 4 times here in this clip!!!
It’s quite remarkable/laughable how some people just make up something that never happened and aggressively promote it to support their own (usually biased) point of view!

I thought the out of bounds slightly earlier would have been paid deliberate slightly earlier in the game
Yeah it looked like Stewart could have marked that if he really tried but let it go out in expectation of a deliberate OOB call that wasn’t given.

Port would want to finish top 2 if they are serious about a flag. Might as well be North on the road to the other decent sides.

Interesting reaction given this was your reaction to the same thing happening to Brisbane against Geelong earlier this year....

Feeling great. Find this Brisbane team very hard to like.

Yeah, it was more than 15m. Geelong robbed but also they should be dirty at Clarke’s blatant and stupid push in the back that allowed the Swans an easy out from the Geelong zone which was well set up but then left them vulnerable down back because of the free kick. Swans don’t hit the lead without that stupidity.
