If it was any player other than greene, would the scrap have gained as much scrutiny in the media. I would even say if it was another player it would just be a fine but being green expect weeks
I still can't find vision of the intentional Grundy strike that old mate managed to dismiss for a fine only. Its not on the AFL site or shown by any of the networks. An intentional strike.

Did the AFL umpiring dept ever say anything about Dusty’s throw that resulted in a Richmond goal?
Dunno but it was an obvious howler that was simply missed by the umpires. Shit happens. I can live with that.

What the AFL need to do is take away less interpretation and make things more clear cut. The bump on Grimes that overturned the Cameron free in the first quarter is what I'm talking about. Weak as piss, but how do you fix it? It's an interpretation. The AFL needs to just make it black and white - come in and bump after a free or mark, and it's overturned. No matter if the player takes a dive. Sure, we don't want to see dives, but do we really need people coming in and laying a bump when play is not live? Just stamp that shit out and there'll be no need to leave it up to interpretation.

Imagine if we do get a Pies Tigers GF. BF will be sh!tight central for eons to come. It's also possible that the losing supporter base logs off for the next 12 months or so, so there may be some positives.
The other positive is that there is a no -zero chance of a meteor hitting the mcg while the game is on...

So who wins Brisbane or GWS ??

GWS for me. Finals hardened against a team thats a little overawed by finals. The lions did play pretty good just choked massively Infront of goal.

Let's see how Brisbane perform next year with a tougher draw and the weight of expectation placed on them.

I’m sorry, but an umpire can’t miss a blatant throw like that. They should be watching the play and if they were, they would not have missed it. Reiwolt was pissing himself laughing after he kicked the goal! If that cost a finals game, any game, I would be livid. It’s just incompetence.

I think Brisbane will win a close game.

Remind me a lot like us in 2011. Young team with experienced players sprinkled throughout the field that unexpectedly jump up the ladder.
Massive choke in week 1 of finals, completely overawed by the occassion.
Then respond to win a close game at home against a team who'd played finals before, followed by a gallant defeat in prelim.
