Hand in back, pushed him

Hand in back, pushed off him, and had slight affect on Hales ability to touch the footy, dunno bout the 50, forward of the mark or back chat? Id change it to worst commentator ever, president for the worst club ever haha

Bruise Free

Sun, 2013-05-05 21:55

If the AFL has its way, footy will eventually become bruise free.

Bullshit free IMO, Thompson was just holding his position, Hale was caught out of his.

Rubbish !

It is ruining a great game . New rules each year keep coming , which in turn just slows the game down .Can't they see that ?

Certainly wasn't in the back

Certainly wasn't in the back - look closely and his hand was actually on Hale's upper arm.  Very soft and literally turned the momentem of the game - Hawks goal instead of Thompson and then Hawks go on to kick a few more and win.  If Thomo was paid the mark and kicked the goal who knows?? 

Thomo needs to learn to shut up (even if he is right) he has given a few 50's away for arguing with the ump recently, got to learn they will never reverse a bad call so why risk the 50.

 

Actually looking at the footage again looks like the 50 may have been against Sauce (Jacobs) when he came across and took over the mark but that's still soft ump could have called him back a metre.

Yeah, extremely soft. How hard does it make the game for defenders?

Good to see Darren Jolly speak up about the constant rule changes. Reckon Kevin Bartlett needs to piss off into the sunset. Has no clue...same for Geischen.

Ahhh, get over it Crows supporters, blame the umps for a loss, the hawks had half as many frees last week along with being beaten in every critical stat yet we still won. IT WAS A FREE KICK WE ALL KNOW THE RULES! HAND WAS IN THE BACK and EDDY IS A FW

Slid from Hale's shoulder and over to his shoulder blade due to Hale's direction of movement, from what I can see, ump was in good possy, would have seen Thomo's open hand and out stretched arm first off

Stop being a flog tim-o, if you reckon that's a legitimate free kick then your more biased than Ed.
