Umps masacred Dons.
Swans got double the free kicks.
Saw Hickey grab the ball in the ruck contest, have prior oppo, got caught stone cold, and ump says "ball up guys" no less than 7 times :mad::mad::mad:

Is there a rule about pushing a player without the ball in the back and to the ground?
Of course there is!
Nah I mean if you are getting up for a free kick and you impede a player from getting onto the mark by pushing them or otherwise and then you get behind the mark and play on while they are still recovering.

The umpire actively stepped in to stop it, so it was a bit strange.

The free should have been given for pushing the player over.
That’s a plain free every day of the week.
The umpire identified it as a foul, but invented his own punishment for it.

reminds me so much of walker

hangs around the back of packs in case it comes out. Doesn’t do any work if the ball isn’t within 10m. Faux tough guy without putting himself in harms way.
A lazy comfortable thief... well beyond minimum standards and why shouldn't he be, he's a natural after all. The prized n lauded dullard isn't capable of offence or malice

An infant with infantile charm to some, yet for most and the many, a simple soul of limited appeal... obvious despite himself.
