the Toffees, the Bays.
Watching from interstate on TV, you'd think maybe one commentator would have the decency to acknowledge the disparity in free kicks and interpretation of frees between the teams. Essendon just gifted scores.

I counted three goals that came after a Giants player was infringed upon (generally high contact) but no whistle unless it was later to Essendon.

That's before even counting the touched goal.

Sigh. What's the point.

Commiserations Giants fans.

Absolutely robbed by the umps getting caught up in the theater of it all.

Hard to remember such an avalanche of frees and dodgy decisions having such an influence on a match.

The bald headed flog was the worst

Please. Playing Essendon with key players out on the 6 day back up from a trip to Perth? With Bellchambers sitting out the entire last quarter and a bit?

Senior players did not stand up late. Greene, Mumford, Deledio etc.

Hard to do when that hairless cheat won't let you play.
