FWIW, I actually loved Smith infuriating Lions fans.

The funniest bit about that scan of the fans, is the one fan that seemed to take most dislike to him and his celebration was wearing a North shirt haha

The other one that astounded me in that final quarter, how the hell did the arc find sufficient evidence to over rule the goal umpire on that Bont goal???

What was funny when you heard the audio "you can see the ball deviate" really? i couldn't. Do I think it was touched I would say more yes than no, was it conclusive no way, so the goal should've stood.

Same opinion as I have. Was most likely touched, but did the ball deviate in those grainy images? Not from my eye either. I would have been livid if that had been overturned against the Tiges, as bad a call as the one against Shai against the Giants a few years ago which would have won us the game.

Was that the one in 2017? Barely touched the Giants player’s fingernail? That would have been Shai’s first goal, too.

Yep thats the one. We lost by a couple of points from memory.
We did. Shai’s goal would have given us an unassailable lead with the time remaining. We beat them in the next game at the G, though. That was the game where Astbury threatened to break Toby Greene in half after his cheap shot on Rance.

yep. shows how terrible the rule is - it's clearly not about intent at all.

Just another one for the TBR is right column.

Despite the arguments from those who know less about the game than I've forgotten, the umpire judges the action. Daniels kicks the ball directly at the boundary line with no team mate in the vicinity. That's what he actually did. Free kicks aren't not paid on a we can see what you were trying to do basis.

And people will say no way it was just a skill error. I'd invite them to spend some time watching training and seeing what players are doing before and after it. Watch them kick a few goals from the fifth row of the grandstand or make the footy turn 6 times to get through a door or into a bin and see if you still think it is out of the realm of possibility that a player could deliberately create a miscued kick. And them ask yourself how the hell you would determine which is which.

Listen to Leppitsch calling it, he has been briefed enough times to know how it works.

Did you see him after the game being interviewed. He was clearly pissed off that that was paid against him.

His foot WAS NOT pointing towards the boundary when he went to kick it. In fact his foot wasn't pointing at the boundary even when he kicked it, it skewed off the side of his boot. The bump from Cameron from behind I'm pretty sure was the biggest impact of what caused it.

Leppa called it a skill error on the call.

What the Dogs had to put up with in past 48 hours is unbelievable. For them to win was enormous. Credit where is due . Hopefully this will get reported . Players were denied meals . Processing of players in hotel quarantine took 4 hours which I might add was the shared overseas visitors hotel quarantine. No delivered meals etc . Food at hotel absolutely rubbish .
And they got fingered by the umpires to boot.

Fagan thinks this loss will eat away at the players and they’ll come back better next year.
Sure he said this last year as well

If we didn't pay free kicks because the player got pissed off then Bachar Houli would be the only bloke in the game who ever copped one!

Even if we accept it was a 100% skill error, he chose to blast the ball out of the air when he was situated fairly close to the boundary line. Everyone would agree that blasting a ball out of air is hard to control and there is a good chance it will go offline, so if you choose to do that in that position are you really showing intent to keep the ball in? He could have taken the ball in his hands and tried to kick or handball it with more control, or just taken the tackle and caused a ball up if he really wanted to make sure it stayed in play.

Razor said that they're instructed to determine whether players demonstrated intent to keep the ball in play.:confused:

Daniel didn't look towards the boundary or kick the ball towards the boundary, but the umpires reckons he didn't show enough intent to keep the ball in play.:confused:


Chamberlain explained how umpires have been told to officiate the rule and how it goes beyond deliberately attempting to get the ball out of bounds.

“So, the guidelines that we’re given now is that the player with the football, or who’s handballing the football, knocking the football, kicking the football, they have to demonstrate a sufficient intent to keep the ball in play,” he said.

“The guts of it is if they’re looking to kill the ball, they put themselves in a position where they could incur a free kick."

I don't spend as much time on here as I used to so just wondering - why all the hate for Fagan?

P.S. Lions' flog players/team I completely understand. Round 10 is burnt into my memory. I was barracking for the Dogs like crazy, and the Barometer wasn't even out there.

Any chance Bompmytelly stand up in a game that matters?
Ah - my beloved father (2 years gone, just after 2019 Cup) used to call him “Bompatelli”.

For some reason, he always called Jack “Reiwoldts” as if we had two of him.

But his best Dad-name was for that atrocious Hawthorn player, “VickeryYouClot”.

May I give a big Here Here to that.

It’s actually “Hear Hear” - it means “Listen to him!” or “Hey, everyone should hear this!”

Don’t normally correct people (though every “your” instead of “you’re” or that Americanism “lay” instead of “lie” annoys me) - but this common error really aggravates my goat
