yeah I don't buy into character assassinations either Rids. I don't see TBR that way at all.
What character assassination? I just disagree with his premise and his methods. Stop getting on your high horse when challenged.

we seem to have ramped up the tricks.

are we being too cute? or are we turning up the chaos to 11?
Went too often for the second or third handball when a kick was available.
Jack is looking for a contact in Serie A with all his back heels .

I'll back up anyone on here who at least provides evidence and isn't afraid to have a different opinion, whether I agree with their opinion or not.
Ok here's another set of simple facts for you i.e evidence. But it's pasted from a post by Tigerlove over on the Umpires Farce thread. So thanks to TL - hope you don't mind. I still don't know how to post across different threads. :confused:

"We're now officially 2nd last for frees per opposition to go with 13th in 2019 and last in 2018 and 2017. "

Did they present Tex with the wooden spoon?
Rumour has it they booked a spare seat on the bus coming back for that spoon.

What about Tex hey? Leading goal kicker for the Crows. He's played twice as many games as Modra.

Walker is an extremely overrated footballer. Along with Josh Jenkins a Damian Barrett lovechild. Says it all.

And we keep on winning. Why worry. We get away the things like Dusty throwing the ball.

I actually enjoy the fact we are last on the free kick differential and still won two flags in those three years.

I didn't see it, but statistically speaking, if it is being complained about on here there is a 6% chance of error.

Nice of you to say so, now if we could just get those 94% of free kicks the umpires miss but are bleedingly obvious to us then it might even up the free kick count a little.

As for the game, not a bad hit out.

Hope Aarts is ok.

Shedda, what a star, back after such a long time out. SImply a great performance.

Astbury a very good return too.

We'll see if Prestia can return in decent form too.

I thought we played well, but there is clear room for improvement. Getting the ball inside 50 went well but could do with better delivery. Too many intercept marks by Adelaide. Our scoring percentage for inside 50 entries was woeful in the first half, around 20% from memory. Got better in the second half but needs to get better. Having Lynch back will clearly make a big difference. Defence was great as usual.

I thought Chol was underwhelming. Not sure what to do really as 1 ruck just doesn't work. Chol needs a bomb under him. I only hope he can thrive on finals pressure as I think we need a second ruck.

I have to say something about Adelaide. They have improved, were woeful earlier in the year. But what really impressed me is that they did not flood, they took the game on. We are just a better team but chapeau to Adelaide for having a go. Gave us a good workout and they won't be wooden spooners next year if that was any indication.

Umpiring? What can you say, they were woefully inconsistent as usual. I don't mind a few mistakes it is just the way I see some players get pinged for holding the ball with maybe a nanosecond of prior, while others get half an hour and it is still a ball up after they are caught. The Riewoldt decision was simply wrong. How can you be pinged for holding the man when the man was in possession of the ball when you tackled him? When you see all the holding going on in every game this decision looks even worse. It needs to get better.
