It was the deliberate against Taberner that f’ed us over. campaigners.

Carlton were kicking down the line for territory all game. To give a free against a bloke who is chasing the ball to the sideline in the wet just because he touches it before it goes out is just lunacy.

Carlton rinsed by the umps all night. Were the better team and deserved it. That last freekick was no different to the two downfields paid 2 minutes before.
Well done. Dumbest comment of the night. The ones to us weren't downfield - go back and watch, the ball came all the way back to our defensive 50.

Credit to Carlton, after quarter time they were slightly better than us and absolutely killed us in the stoppages to the point that it actually looked like we were allowing them to win they were doing it so easily.

It’s a shame that the end and the result had to be marred by a howler of a mistake by the umps but what a magnificent kick by Newnes! All credit to him for taking the gift and making the most of it.

We just weren’t good enough and the first time for a few weeks we had some passengers.

Robbed, extremely frustrated, but let's be honest, if Carlton kicked straight we would've loss by more
You are not wrong, we played poorly after first quarter, I thought they would overrun us in the 4th. With that said though the game was saved, it took some cheats with whistles to turn the game.

yep the umps screwed us but we played terribly for most of the game, too many low footy IQ players out there.

There has to be someone down the field for it to be paid down field. Those kicks were to no one and hence brought back and paid as a push.

So now you are changing your post to "not downfield" now? Like I said you win the prize for being the dumbest poster to visit our forum today. Should we request a badge from the mods?

I can live with the Tabs deliberate but that second free was absolute bullshit and smacked of the ump actively looking for a reason to give them a free.

Brayshaw has jumped in the air then braces with his hands so he wouldn't crash into the Blues player on the way down. It wasn't a late hit because it wasn't even a hit, he was actively avoiding hitting him. Absolutely robbed. Complete bullshit.
