Those two decisions that went against Geelong tonight are nothing short of scandalous. The not 15 call in particular. If the AFL has any integrity what’s so ever it should come out and openly admit it

What. Open a Pandora’s box of worms? That would require integrity. It’s the AFL mate!

This was not that umpire's first rodeo.

It was deemed touched, if the game had been 2-3 seconds longer I think HTB would have been paid.. they are letting them go a lot this year

Collingwood vs Gold Coast
Crowd: 24,397 at the MCG

Notice the crickets coming from the media about their crowd, we would have copped a pasting. This after their 29k against the Giants.
Don't they have 100,000 members? I've always felt our crowd to member ratio was much better than those 'big' clubs

How would you ever know - I reckon they'd have played GC at home maybe 2-3 times in a decade. Their crowds are so reliant on fixturing handouts to get the biggest numbers.

Discretionary rules.
Aren't they all that these days? The deliberate "greying" of the rules allows for just about any interpretation possible!

It's like Australian state & federal government statutory law. Wallpaper the masses in with so many statutes that there's no longer any cracks for the "common law" to squeeze through.

Of course, this set up is wide open now to promote and excuse personal bias.
