Who was the umpire who paid a holding the ball to us on the Northern side, blew his whistle, and with the ball bouncing around on the ground with ZERO advantage of any kind what so ever, then called play on ?

About time a Class Action was demanded y punters who gamble on games.

Pity gambling agencies didn’t have a market for Frees For and Frees Against. We could clean up.

Dimma hints it again at the presser: "We probably just didn't get the reward a couple of times when we did tackle...."

Guys, it's all there in black and white: when a Richmond player tackles it's either too high, in the back, play on, play-on-it-came-out, or as a last resort, a ball-up.

I can’t work out which decision was worst. This one or the Riewoldt “dangerous tackle”. Both were disgraceful. Jack actually did very well to ensure it wasn’t a dangerous tackle. Yet he still got penalised. The umpiring was an absolute joke today; as it is every week. The club needs to say something.

The game is *smile*.

Dimma also 'whinged' about the Umpire's Call saga....."Could they have possibly taken any longer?"

Gotta be careful Dimma, these a-holes are sooks and want money.

I went apoplectic when this happened. Honestly thought my head would explode.

I went to a local game today. The umpiring was umpired a lot less PC so a lot more enjoyable. The AFL game is stuffed.

The dissent call against Tom, taking out the legs against Balta or free to Lewis or Mitchell when his teammate clearly infringed Nank were bad calls!

I know. Dunno if I’ve seen anything like it. It was almost as if he realised “*** I just gave them a free…I need to fix this….PLAY OOOON !”

Just outrageous.

Watching the Saints game - clear the dissent rules are different for any other team than Richmond

When it comes to umpires in a Richmond game I think I've developed a learned helplessness.

Like that call in the Eagles game: "Holding the ball - I mean, free kick West Coast, in the back."
