All game long there has been no such thing as a Swans player holding the ball. All game.
All game. Seriously hickey dropped it cold blatently after taking on the tackler, multiple tacklers even, 4 times. Bizaare, it was comical. He's got a green light!

I don't usually complain about umpiring. But JHC some critical non calls made late in favour of the World's Greatest Football Team (TM). Ess probably didn't deserve it....just. But the umps made it impossible.

Every bloody journo and commentater is jacking off over the rule changes but they can’t get the basics right. Infuriating.

Why wasn't that holding the ball against Hickey? He had prior.
Why wasn't that deliberate?
How many goals did Sydney kick that were helped by the umpires?

Similar to last week against us. They just managed to get on top and ensure any chance of a fightback was snuffed out.

I reckon Sydney have broken records in the last 2 weeks?
12 goals from free kicks.

the sceptic would say there’s a directive from AFL house to have Sydney rise quickly. That was a disgraceful umpiring performance again.

Hickey holding the footy, just after a non deliberate out of bounds call.

Umps save another home side in the closing minutes, happening fairly regularly these days.

You still cant touch Franklin geez he gets some seriously garbage free kicks.

LOL Drugs shame it wasn't a draw wouldve cost em both 4 points.

Time to start lagging. Someone's gotta speak out about this pathetic inconsistency in umpiring.
