    Speaking of biased umpiring, read this today...............

    "The Tigers have the biggest deficit of any team this year in terms of free kicks, currently sitting at -74 for 2017."

    Yes, a good idea to move on to next week.
    We need to win at least one.
    We need Sydney and PA to lose next weekend.
    The beauty is we will know the results of both matches.

    The positives

    Broad was great. BOG in 1st qtr.
    We won 2 qtrs & lost a third by 8 points.
    Rance had a shocker & Dusty & Jack were quite and we still managed to get within a goal in the last qtr.

    Hopefully Hampson can get through next week in the VFL & then come in against the saints.

    I think an underdone Hampson is better than Soldo. Soldo is improving, but I don't see him doing much in September

    A 14 pt loss - umpiring definitely inflated the difference... a few players down on previous weeks .. George, Rance, Ellis, Butler (though his defensive play was good) ... Soldo like a new born Giraffe.
    With 3 of their best out the Cats played our pressure game better than us.
    Our structure and game plan can't afford to have 25% of our team down .. there is so little between the challenger teams this season. Whilst Geelong were down on talent, that talent was in the stands.. we were down on talent (this week) on the ground.

    Whilst it isn't considered sporting by the AFL, and can be seen as excuses, good on Hardwick for calling out the umpires.. they certainly impacted the score line.

    The rushed behind ruling was probably the worst and it seems to have swung right back the other way, I watched a Gold Coast player change direction run 3 metres into the post and it not called.

    I've got no issue with Geelong playing home games at Skilled, but how the AFL justifies home games against North (30k) & Melbourne (29k) games need to be played at Etihad, but Richmond play at Skilled (32k).

    I would argue that if the first two games were played at Skilled, the crowds would have been the same, but the Richmond crowd would have sold out Etihad.

    If the AFL are fair dinkum about equality (and I don't think they are) at least one of Carl, Coll & Ess have to be fixtured to play down there in 2018. They won't & it will fall to Melb, StK or the Dogs.

    It's virtually double the 17th ranked team.

    So approximately 3 frees less per game.

    Yeah well perhaps we should stop breaking the rules. Clumsy tackles and getting caught with the ball would seem to be costing us a bit.

    There is no reason to think that free kicks should be even. The umpires call what they see. They don't cheat, though they can and do make mistakes. Also, some free kicks have exactly zero influence on the play, where other directly change momentum. We need to look deeper into these things and not worry about the raw numbers as they don't come close to telling the full story.

    Much has been made of the Cats missing Hawkins and Selwood. We were also missing 2 of our best 22 in Griffiths and Conca.

    Where it gets frustrating is when in one sequence a Geelong player is tackled, drops the ball, play on and they move it forward for a goal. (That sucks in itself) But then next restart, Tiger player does the exact same thing, penalised, Geelong move it forward for a goal.

    AFL is a multi-billion dollar industry. To play at mediocre venue SS is a disappointing fixture.

    No doubt it's frustrating and different umpires in different positions see things differently. I saw a few glimpses of the game yesterday and yes we were unlucky on a few occasions with the umpires and yes that can alter momentum but just stating the raw numbers isn't enough. Still, I think we lost because we played poorly and unfortunately when 1 of our stars has a poor day it seems the others go out in sympathy. Too unionized? :)

    And by the way - I stood in the general admin standing area of skilled yesterday and heard some of the best heckling of an opposition side I have ever heard - just a constant stream of comedy.

    So good one Tigers protagonist ended up wearing a Cats supporters beer over his head - that was all the Cats could come back with.

    At least we had one win for the day

    It is a shite Stadium. Only AFL venue, ever, where men had to queue for toilets.

    Felt extra sorry for the ladies.

    The ORCS had to sit to the side of the goals because it's reserved seating for Geelong members behind the goals. WTF?

    No wifi, and the worst mobile reception that never worked.

    The other win was the police escorting a Geelong supporter from the ground for anti-social behavior.

    Imagine what it would have been like if they had lost!
