Not normally someone who comments on the umpires but omg. WC could have been pinged 4 to 5 times in a row for holding the ball and nothing. Then Hawkins get pinged for exactly the same thing. The McGovern free was crap. It would be great if they saw the same things for both sides.

Which free wasn’t there. Please enlighten us.

Or accept the fact your team fell apart with the slightest of pressure and started playing the man.
I’m at a trivia night and hardly paying attention but there was one in the centre square where your player took a bigger dive than a porn star into a pool of muff with barely a finger on him. There’s one right there

So you’re saying Scott should throw another tantrum?

Is he going to point out all the poor frees? Will he condemn the umpires for the missed Dahlhaus call?

Or do you only think the sport is corrupt when soft frees go against you?
I don't generally use the umpire excuse and I condemn it but that quarter was as bad as I've seen.

F off

He was standing there

Dreadful gift to the eagles
You realise he can “stand there”and block yeah?

Like you kinda need to “Stand there” to block?

He looked and adjusted where he stood to block Ryan.

The only part that should’ve gone cats way was the missed HTBs in west coast forward 50. But the umpires should put the whistle away like that more often. Let them go. Let the McGovern free go.

Getting an absolute ride from the umpires atm.
Indeed

Put whistle away

There were multiple incidents within a minute last stanza that umps let go where eagles players flopped around and dropped ball and quite rightly was play on. But other end they are called with an intensity that was bewildering

It’s the ones the other way that are completely ignored that’s the problem.

One team is getting frees the other isn’t for the exact same things.

Again, so you only complain about frees against you? You only want your coach to kick up shit because you claim you had a bad run, but you’re okay when clear frees against you are missed?
