Interesting. Tough even contest between Collingwood and WCE and the frees pretty even at 17-20.

Are Collingwood the only side can win the free count at Subiaco?

Geelong 26 frees to st Kilda s 14. Tell me again there’s no bias (unconscious or otherwise) by the umpires.

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.

About time one of the coaches spoke up about the biased umpiring for some teams, in particular Geelong and Collingwood.

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.

Scooping the ball upwards is and has always been classed as a throw.

Just heard that the green flog who gifted Shank that 2nd goal has just been executed at Gestapo Gil's castle.

And he’ll probably get fined for it.
Congratulations to Richardson for saying what the majority of the AFL followers are thinking. Hope Geelong and Collingwood opposition coaches follow up each week so that the umpires are allowed to umpire impaitly

I hate how often we've been pinged for having a tackle linger too long when the opposition player has just dropped the ball. Instead of receiving a free, we get it against us.

As a tackler, it's hard to know the opponent is no longer in possession if they havent gone through the motion of hand balling or kicking. Dropping it stone cold works perfect against us.

I don't seem to see other teams cop this free kick against them.
