Soft free and goal to crows.
Yes, the hight tackle needs to be changed. If the first contact is ok, the tackler shouldn't be penalised because of a duck of the head, or a raised arm causing the tackle to go high.

Must be an AFL directive to the commentators not to criticise missed free kicks. A Dockers defenders got tackled without the ball, nothing to see from the umpires, the crows get their 3rd goal. Half a dozen replays, but not a murmur from Healy and Russell.
I often wonder why Fox don't update the talent more often... seriously, Healy is terrible as a special comments, 5minute physio, expert.
Called someone the No1 player in the competition during that half.... like Tex is going ok, but he ain't no D.Martin

No club has struggled more since the end of the brown paper bag days than this cheating rabble.
Agree totally.
They don't have what it takes to build a side from scratch.
Its 2021 and they're still going out and buying players at huge prices where kids could fill those postions.
Let them sit in the bottom half of the ladder for the next 25 years.

Agree. We are seeing so many players ducking their head or dropping the shoulders. Trying to milk a free.

And I thought nicnat was the best player in the comp according to Healy.

Dunstalls commentary is good. He is often correcting Dwayne.

Watched the last qtr of the dockers beating up a slow crows on their home deck.

Dockers looked really impressive and had to much speed and grunt for the crows. Make that two April fools finalists in the swans and crows.

I like what the Dockers are doing under Longmuir. Doubt they will play finals this year but definitely look to be headed In the right direction.
