I always wonder if Clangerfield would have made a difference to crows chances in the 17 GF.
Think we can safely say No.

If he'd run on the ground during the third quarter wearing nothing but a scarf... then maybe.

The more i watch the GF the worse his diving is.
It's habitual. The split second he realises he is out of position and won't win the contest he reacts by going to ground and flinging his arms out. M.Lloyd spent his whole career doing the same thing.

When the going gets tough, the weak look around for help.

When we play Geelong, we make the going get tough... so their players look around for help.

Comes from the top.

It amazes me how many of the Geelong crew are looking to the umpire when the ball is still in play.
This is a big factor in them losing big games, watch our guys at a stoppage, they head str8 to thier position to set up the play, thier players are looking at the umps with the arms out. Same with tackles, our guys try to break them, thier try to draw high free kicks.

This is why we shouldn’t worry about our negative free kick ratio.

Other clubs train to win free kicks, play to win free kicks, and lay in bed at night dreaming about winning Grand Finals from free kicks.

Not us.

In attempting to gain an underhanded advantage, the feline kind lick themselves in the foot when faced with a focused tiger on the hunt.

remember the 3Q?
Bolton takes that mark on the boundary.
Geelong whinge and screamed to the umpire it was touched.
Bolton chips it to Lambert.
Geelong players still keep whining.
Lambert goals.
Geelong still whinging to the umpire the ball was touched.

if they just played the game that kick to Lambert wouldn’t have happened.

you can’t do that in a grand final. Just really poor play.
But I guess it’s in there DNA

Do they seriously think the umpire is going to change their decision? Doesn't happen. Fine to make the claim and make your point, but that takes 5 seconds and then back into it. Umpires' decisions don't get reversed, it is something outside the players' control and your time and effort needs to go towards that which you can control.

Spot on. Balta was trying to argue his case after a free at one point. One of the senior players just grabbed him and straight away he was off running back to position.

Always liked Jackson Browne. Such vision to write a song for Paddy ;)

Out into the cool of the evening
Strolls the Pretender
He knows that all his hopes and dreams
Begin and end there

Are you there?
Say a prayer for the Pretender
Who started out so young and strong
Only to surrender

Contrast that with the Geelong player who continued to claim Shai’s mark was touched, even after Shai had taken his kick and the player who marked it was lining up for goal.
