Papley is an absolute past master at dropping the knees to draw a free , a couple of his teammates arent bad eitherOkay, two questions.
1. Why wasn't the Kamdyn incident a free kick? It doesn't matter if it's accidental, as accidental high contact is still a free kick in every other situation excluding marking contests, which this wasn't. Right?
2. If you win the ball and contribute to receiving high contact by a tackler (aka "the Selwood rule"), then doesn't that mean prior opportunity and holding the ball?
If so, the Papley free kick was an example of this and needs to be stamped out. These guys create the high contact by looking at an opposition player before they get the ball, grabbing the ball, then propelling their body and head towards the opposition player to intentionally create high contact that otherwise wouldn't have happened. It's wrong, and it rewards players for attracting head knocks, which will lead to increased probability of CTE in retirement, and so should be treated as deadly serious - but it's ignored. Am I missing something here?
Frees in 2nd half was 6 to 14. I think I missed the squaring up bit.
It wasn't paid as a mark, but Pickett wasn't looking at the ball and held Heeney.What about when heeney dropped that mark in FP that was paid and goaled, lamentable decision
Agree with that , and that was my point they had a hair trigger that was applied differently in our f50It wasn't paid as a mark, but Pickett wasn't looking at the ball and held Heeney.
That was there, but once again we never get those paid for us.
Alot of the decisions were right in the context of the rules but lynch and Jack never get those paid.
Yep the *smile* umpiring meant there’d be no ComebackI'd love to see the 3rd quarter. Reckon we got reamed by the umps in that quarter. Every time we looked like coming back into it, we seemed to get a poor decision against. That quarter was so important after being 40 points down at half time, we need to drop that lead to 20-25 to stand any chance and the umps seemed to be intent to snuff that out.
Don’t forget if you can’t handball don’t worry you can throw it now. As long as the ball is in motion it’s all good.So if you want a free kick all you have to do is run over a player bending over picking up the ball. The dud umps will pay a "taking the legs" free 9 out of 10 times.
Also if you want to run with the ball 30 meters without bouncing just take the kick in from a behind. The umpires are too busy rehearsing their stand stand routine in their heads to blow the whistle.
And if you kick to a team mate 8 meters away don't worry the ump will pay the mark.
Wasn't there also an incident where Carrotseller got slid into n near got decrapitated?I remember it coming in and that it was the Rohan incident that was the catalyst, but Goodes got away with it for years. It was kind of ironic that the incident that brought the rule in involved one of his teammates.
Yep tackling is going to fade out of the game at this rate. Clearly they are instructed to keep the play flowing and that means allowing any disposal of the ball when tackled and plenty of time to get the ball out. Some tackles spin 3 times and there is no free paid
