Interesting. Tough even contest between Collingwood and WCE and the frees pretty even at 17-20.
Watched the last part of that game. One passage of play Saints kicking ball out of defense, Cats shoves Stk player under incoming ball that was not within 5 mtrs, just misses mark, Cats player swoops kicks in & Gary marks, goal ! pathetic umpiring.Geelong 26 frees to st Kilda s 14. Tell me again there’s no bias (unconscious or otherwise) by the umpires.
Scooping the ball upwards is and has always been classed as a throw.What’s the difference given the wet conditions today in tapping the ball forward along the ground to a team mate’s advantage and scooping the ball upwards to advantage?
Ah, we will pay a free kick against you in the latter case.
Work that out and explain the anomaly to me please.
