Yep and strangest part is that we and Scumwood play similar (or thereabouts) !!!I can't find the stat, but at half time I think the frees were 7-6 in Hawthorn's favour at half time. 20-10 by the end of the game. What was simply astounding was the holding the ball free kicks. Richmond player barely gets the ball and is tackled, with clearly no prior, they got pinged. Yet, time after time, a Hawthorn player gets tackled, does not dispose properly and it's a ball up, sometimes no prior, sometimes they had prior. If you are going to pay holding the ball when there is no prior then pay it every time or not at all. It was glaring the difference in the interpretation, glaring.
Now, watching the Collingwood game and they get a gift from the umpire. The umpire called play on too quickly on the Sydney player who had marked on the last line, and he called play on after the Collingwood player was already over the mark. Gift goal to Collingwood, absolutely no understanding of the rules, appalling decision.
How about when Marlion marked the ball in the 1st quarter and the man on the mark took a couple of steps to the side? That's a black or white situation. Unfortunately for Marlion, the umpire just didn't feel like paying 50m in that moment.
That’s 50m every time and twice on Sundays - especially if we do it. But because it’s Richmond it’s “immaterial.”How about Lynch getting pushed over while walking back to the mark? Would have been 100m against us, yes, we give away a lot of 50s, but how come we get none?
Yes David, you are correct it was Richmond 6 frees Hawthorn 7 frees at half time. I commented to a person near me how I felt we were having a good run with the umps. I checked again at 3/4 time and it was Richmond 8 Hawthorn 11.I can't find the stat, but at half time I think the frees were 7-6 in Hawthorn's favour at half time. 20-10 by the end of the game.
Only if you play Richmond can you stick your leg out and trip a player up and it gets called play onWe don't get holding the ball decisions.
We get them paid against us bit we seem to get 1 in 3. And it has to be really obvious for then to pay it.
Like others have mentioned. Moving on the mark, only if you play Richmond you can move, only if you play Richmond you can push or bump them after a mark without a 50.
Some of the decisions let go by the umpires yesterday to Hawthorn were a joke.
Even Hawthorn players knew they had been caught.
