I watched the game again today, all of those frees mentioned by moaners not of the yellow and black persuasion are there. They have nothing to whinge about.I only listened to a few minutes of it on the way home. Did you hear the one just before 11pm. Claimed we were gifted 5 goals from frees ( coincidentally if we didn’t “ receive” those we would have lost by 5 points), but when pressed couldn’t recall even one specific one of those. Claimed he was a neutral , a north supporter, but seemed to be on the verge of tears when describing how they were screwed by umpiring decisions ( seriously). I switched the station after that.
Later I guessed smoke, souvlaki or kick to kick. The pass out is dead.Phone on full brightness. In any case I have seen this for a couple of years now, at least 50% of people bringing a ticket on a phone have a lot of trouble convincing the machine to read the ticket.
22nd Man, can't quote your post as it is inside mine. Swiping out? Yeah, smoko.
The free against Jones for deliberate only resulted in a point anyway, Rioli missed it. That was a very obvious one, he was outside the square with no real pressure on him, could have easily grabbed it and tried to bring the ball out. Free kick every day of the week.You have to laugh at the cluelessness of carlscum fans. On the way home the deluded were ringing into SEN talking about frees, are you kidding me blues had 10 more frees and 3 of their goals gifted by the umpires.
The Macintosh incident only blues fans could say if it wasn't tripping should've been holding the ball. An honest person would say geez Macintosh was grabbed by the legs should've been tiges free but we'll take the play on call. But no they wanted holding the ball even though it was a 100% trip.
Nankvervis still had pressure when he walked back into goals whereby Jones pretended to tap the ball over 5 meters and go over the line with no one behind him, you literally can't make this *smile* up. The very few blues fans who were there mostly in AFL members were making some noise there and carrying on for holding the ball every time we got tackled but unbeknown to the clueless which is your typical blues fan, tiger players were actually handballing it out.
Other callers were saying we had out McGovern (lol = spud), de Kooning (like CCJ he is still learning the ropes wont be the difference in the game), Tom Williamson (lol = spud), Betts at 33 years old didn't make the cut. The quality they had out was Zac Williams, Jack Martin and Charlie Curnow and to a lesser extent Marchbank. We had royalty out Cotchin and Houli
75 inside 50's to 41 shows that we should've won this game by 50+ based on the countless entries into our forward 50. We need to convert these inside 50 chances when they present.
Overall a good game, blues came to play and took it up to us but I always knew we would scoot away in red time and it panned out that way.
Happy with the win and look forward to next week V the Hawks.
Younger Bro texted me late in the game n suggested exactly the same thing, also that we'd still be searching for our first flag since 1980 if we didn't have him.Couple of their fans that live near me said to me today Tigers are a one man side without Dusty we are *smile*.
For all those Grannies played in.How many GF did the Gazza’s play
Dusty is great but that is a big call
Fraudenderp: "Look, son, this is a woman. If I pretend to be nice to it I might have a chance when I Bradbury my way into the leadership."Forget Slo-Mo who has no idea what Aussie Rules is, what's going on behind the scenes?
That woulda been Morabito. Wouldn't have minded if we'd got him on draft day. Three or four Knee reco's in a row sure *smile* with that idea.Something I like to remind people of when they say things like this is, even if we didn't have Martin, we would have had another player at the same level of the draft. So, as an example, you go and check the draft we got Martin in and look at who went after him. Don't look. It ain't pretty.
A lot of the commentary was about fatigue affecting skills, but then look at Dusty's last two passes. The last one didn't draw a cheer. The crowd all went "Awwwww!".
