I actually blame the player for the over reaction and the dive. The umpire probably thought he actually got hit in the head. It was a flop just like Grimes. The umpires are getting sucked in and made to look foolish. But it needs to be called out and then Richmond having made the umpires look foolish will be penalised in future by not getting legitimate frees because they are known as a team of floppers.More acting, more umpiring incompetence.
Just heard the commentators say how lopsided the contested possession count is (+30). Meanwhile our reactionary caching panel paid a mint don't try something different. They merely change personell in the same style. One small miidfielder for anotherInside 50s contested possessions and scoring shots tell the full story just a matter of time with those stats that a few dodgy free kicks come of it
