Two charges out of the game ... both happened directly in front of the umps and both passed without a free kick to Freo.
The first resulted in an immediate goal to the perpetrator, Tom Hawkins and his withering elbows.
The second was 20m out from Freo goal when our best kick Walters was dumped illegally. Again no call.
2 goal difference in that game is massive! Will anyone raise this with the ump dept? Justin? Clarkson?

Two goals isn't massive - that's all we kicked over four quarters.

Wouldn't mind the biased ruck treatment against Darcy being raised while they're at it.

Darcy needs to be a bit less blatant with his manhandling - first reaction is the groping biceps curl with a praying mantis arm. You’ll get suckered 7/10 by an experienced ruckman.

And jumping into the other bloke, willy-nilly, when there’s clearly no chance of hitting the ball is just a bit silly.

I'd urge caution before you go off spouting such heresy, Mushroom. The narrative is that the AFL and the umpires - especially the umpires - are all in some sort of deep state conspiracy to stick it into the Fremantle Dockers and keep the club in it's rightful place at the very bottom of the pecking order.

We're not supposed to discuss the immature players, naive coaching, lame game plan and rubbish support staff.

It's all the fault of those bloody umpires.

Jumping into Darcy willy nilly seems to work for opposition ruckman, Hawkins got away with a few against our smaller blokes as well, Darcy was just trying to adapt to umpire interpretations, why wouldn't he??? As for the holding, even the biased amongst the CH7 commentators reckoned that the umpires were kidding if they thought they could tell who was holding who in those ruck duels, so how could they award a free kick at all. They were mostly of the opinion Darcy was harshly dealt with by Margetts & co, so, Mushy, I reckon we are ok to highlight it as well. Just because you are paranoid, it doesn't mean they are NOT out to get you.

'Good to see' and 'Damien Barrett' don't belong in the same sentence let alone following each other.
Nathan: When did you get balls?
Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.
Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.
