Correct decision, shit rule. Much better to knee someone in the back of the headAnd he paid the rubbish frees against Jack in the marking contests and the in the back to their Rioli from the Caddy tackle.
Amen, but we should have won by more than we did.That last effort from Castagna is worthy of dropping next week.
The Eagles tagged Lambert, Hutchins until he did a hammy, not sure who in the 2nd half. They obviously rate him highly.Lambert was down today, as were Graham and a few others.
We need to win this, there is no " dont show them our cards yet'
next thing you are playing in an elimination game and have an off day like we did last year
My reading of this media release is the umpire, number 32, misinterpreted the rule, because those two marks were not likely to cause injury.
He also got the in the back rule completely wrong to stem our momentum in the last 1/4.
Seems to me it's all umpire incompetence, having an inability to umpire in the spirit of the game and hence implement the correct interpretation of the rules, and not an issue with the rules.
But of course, umpires are a protected species in the AFL, so we get the media spin to deflect the cause.
