We were up 4 goals to 2 at quarter time yet Melbourne had more than double the free kicks.When you’re second to the footy and play from behind you give away more free kicks. Simple.
By 3 quarter time 2 goals (but 4 shots on goal) were from free kicks for Melbourne.
So despite kicking more goals we were consistently 2nd to the ball?
Richmond over the last 3 or 4 years have been well behind in free kicks. Are you suggesting over that period that have struggled to get the ball?
During our 3 peat we were 15th or 16th for free kicks. We struggled as well?
Or maybe is it more umpires are charitable and like to give a leg up to sad teams.
