Spot on. We were smashed in the midfield and continually put our defence in the gun. If Carlton took their chances that game would have been long gone before the end of the 4thCredit 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.
Interpret it whatever way you want. Makes up for the shot Mackay should've got directly Infront for dropping the ball. The cream rose to the top in the endSo 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?
Remember when Langdon kicked it 70m against the Demons to hit the behind post and the maggots gave a free kick.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.
And the Freo frees were for blatant and illegal two hand pushes in the back, whereas Brayshaw was in midair and made front on contact just after the ball was kicked.Except both of the Freo frees weren't downfield and had to come back!
You really want that badge don't you? You'll look foolish once you go back and look at the footage. No question we should have gotten a bigger lead and then it wouldn't have come down to a kick at the end. But (a) the deliberate OOB was BS; (b) the free kick was against player who jumped directly up and came down - no forward momentum; (c) if the ball goes out of bounds it should come back to where the infringement happened; (d) the wrong player took the kick, Newnes wasn't closest.Interpret it whatever way you want.
