About a minute into the last qtr Prestia earns a free at half back (Selwood dropping the ball)
Tom Stewart has the ball by then and umpire held up play.
Dusty called for it and Stewart threw it to him who then relayed it to Prestia
Is that technically a 50m penalty given the Clangerfield one before half time???
Absolutely a 50m penalty. Exactly what Cotch got pinged for when he gave the ball to Bash.
The classic of that one was Rooey a couple of years back sucked in some poor first or second game kid by insistently calling for the ball when it was one of his team mates the ball should have been passed to. Straight up 50 for not returning the ball correctly to the player receiving the free.

To keep fit, the wife and I bought ourselves a water rower as our Christmas present.

If you've ever used one, you'll know they're pretty tough work. And I've never really been one for repetitive exercise.

But my saviour has been the third quarter of the preliminary final.

Load up Kayo, get on the rower and, wham-o!, 30 minutes of quality exercise passes by without even knowing it!
I watched the 3rd quarter of the preliminary final today, i drank 3 stubbies ;)

I've been going through the 2017 and 2019 finals, 2019 PF today. What a wonderful second half. It is also noticeable that we weathered their ascendancy through the 2nd quarter (where Geelong set up very well and played some great footy) and they should not have been 21 points up, rather only 15 if not for the ridiculous free and 50 to Dangerfield.

The judgements on 50m penalties in that game was absurdly inconsistent, even Richo was complaining about it at one point.

Its not just the 50 we copped, its the 50 we didnt get.
Geelong at the end were lucky they only lost by 19 points.
Could've been more embarrassing. We missed 3 sodas in the 2nd half.

Essendon have 4 top line talls on their list that is it.

Hurley, Hooker, Daniher and Bellchambers.

As a quartet they are becoming injury struck and there isnt anything of quality coming through on face value at least.

Whilst this situation continues they are going nowhere.

Hartley and Briown were handy, dont know why they let them go considering their lack of quality talls.

Bellchambers a top line tall? He’s a battler.

Hartley and brown are battlers too.

That tap from Jack v 3 Geelong players to Dusty to goal is absolutely top shelf brilliant

Yep and the commentators dont even mention it.
Yes i couldn't believe that the commentators weren't raving about it, because it was a thing of beauty. How good was Shorty's 60 metre kick to Jack to set that play up.

Its really quite, no listening to Scott whinge about something we are doing.
Im surprised he hasn't questioned our starting times or the length of our socks...

But champion data don't have a stat for those actions so they don't actually exist. Nothing for the media to bother getting excited about.

Bruce’s call of that moment was ‘un-Bruce like’ given the eye popping beauty of it. It doesn’t do it justice and is almost deflating. Would prefer to watch the footage with alternative radio calls.

Get the ball in deep for the forwards to contest n bring the ball to ground for the smalls to either score or lock the ball in. Perfectly executed n we've been practicing this stuff for three years n every coach n nuffer media expert simply can't figure out what or how we do it :rotfl1 .
