They’ve been named…Had to have their own personalised thread.
I woke up this morning with that sick in the guts feeling which follows you being screwed over. I’m sure everyone’s experienced it at some point in another part of life. Today for the first time it was footy. Never before have had this feeling of anger, resentment, and dismay on the back of umpiring nor footy since the saga.
I’m typically an agitator for reason (hence my continued baiting of Worsfold critics after a win), and I’m also objective when it comes to our own performance erring on the side of Sheedy optimism at times . Up until now, I haven’t questioned the role of the umpires…and Typically I would be sifting through the stats this morning with an attempt to make reason of our performance yesterday. But I couldn’t.
I watched the game when I got home and was beyond fury…
Yesterday was horrific, it was unfair… It was premeditated cheating.
I’m not sure if all three were being Bank rolled, but there was something. I can’t put my finger on it and I’m taking action. By the end of the weekend Stephen Hocking, and Gil McLachlan, will have a letter enroute requesting answers with a detailed analysis of the decisions across the game with a request that it is replayed or points split.
I’m going to struggle to watch another game this year if nothing official comes out on the back of the game and Hocking provides us with a neanderthalic PR closed ranks we’re comfortable with their performance bs.
But for now I’m angry…This footy club was shafted yesterday.
