    Pretty amateurish in hindsight.

    Real pros don't climb goalposts they merely put a dozen men on the mark.

    No doubt a free. The umpire is not there to warn a player but to just pay a free or not pay a free.

    But that’s not the case for all situations. They get warnings often. The soft free paid against Rampe which gifted Stringer his goal is evidence of that. He got warned and then the free was paid.
    Our club was born in blood and boots, not in AFL focus groups.

    Agree as well. Not in the spirit of the game as well as not allowed. Definite free for mine. Only thing saving him was that it was such a unique situation that may have baffled the umps as to what the rule is.

    Sound exactly like what happened to Lake in the 2009 prelim.

    If Melbourne think they are going to win they could be in for a shock.
    GC can be very cheeky as we know if your not on the ball 100%

    Yes, agree. Rampe was trying to gain an illegal advantage. Against the rules, and the spirit of the rules. Adopting a “whatever it takes” attitude, so to speak. Not fair! May the karma bus keep rolling over the top of the Bombres and everything the DonTheSash apologists stand for

    I have a theory that we should let all Bombers supporters know that they were robbed. The AFL is clearly plotting against them
    If that can add to their angst then it's worth being nice to them.
    Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
    Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up — if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.
    And what started here will indeed have changed the world — for the better.

    I'm sorely tempted to log on and be all reasonable with them and agree they were ripped off. I don't believe it but I enjoy seeing them suffer.

    Melbourne sneaks home by a point. Can they kick start their season?

    WC v Saints is a shocking game of footy.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    I only saw the last 5 minutes, and GC just threw it away. With I think 39 seconds on the clock GC goal to go 6 points up. Melbourne then get a goal and 18 seconds left. Melbourne then force the ball forward for a point.
