    Uh...well there is a rule in for staging..and this is a clear case for fining. Yeah the ump's were **** overall but I'm not gonna blame them for that. It was good acting. It looked pretty bloody bad in real-time.

    Shouldn't fine when a free kick is awarded. Either way it was reckless by whoever it was (can't actually remember who) and was lucky not to collect his head,

    and the guy who took out hocking was a bit reckless. he also didn't do anything wrong. melksham slid into Rawlings body, took his arms and Rawlings swung his back further than jono when he's with Burgey.

    Tbf to Spikey, I don't think he's blaming the umpires for the loss, and he didn't do it vs. Richmond too, whereas most Essendon fans did it massively for both games. My Facebook is going off.

    Feel like taking a stroll down to Essendon station right now to catch all the fans and see their face as they get off the station heading home

    Fair play.

    Should lose the next ten though.

    Delaney was trying to smother and Hocking ran into him when he was mid air, how is that reckless?? Was just unfortunate.

    When a player is on the ground head over the football and you come that close to collecting his head with his hip, I'm talking a matter of 3cm, that's reckless.

    not at all. the worse decision was the hibberd square up 50, and as I said before we gave away so many goals through **** disposal and dumb free-kicks (buddy missing will be cancelled out by hurley missing) we didn't deserve to win. we got lucky that north decided to try out the crap kicking thing too but when it came to giving away dumb frees we had them beat. and then the goal-kicking. the umps just put salt in the wound (Heppell/Hibberd at the end), but it's also a lot easier to blame them than to actually think about why we lost so. i dare say they're also ranting about stanton

    but the rawlings really pissed me off. i don't care people making the most out of a little contact in the back but that was just piss poor. and nothing will happen. at least a bit of a smear campaign in the papers or something!

    ...he didn't get anyway near his hand really. at least rawlings has a really really short neck and torso....

    as for Delaney, yeah that was hyperbole. but he probably could have avoided his arm hitting. it's really the same as melksham. ie they did nothing wrong. (well in the end delaney did make head contract but) to try to say melksham did something wrong is just
