Agreed LH...I felt sorry for EF in the derby last week for the same reasons.

Yeah I watched that game and also felt EF got a terrible deal from the umps.

It's happening too often this season.

The way football is played nowadays I just can't imagine many occasions where a 22-11 or 31-12 free kick tally is justified. There aren't any thugs in modern day footy.

So why is it happening? As a neutral it completely spoils the contest as a spectacle. 

I don't even enjoy it when the free kick is dramatically in favour of my own team.

Thankfully, the league match between EP and SF was umpired in a fair and even handed manner and the game turned out to be really entertaining and close.

Great result by the Royals. South just don't seem to show respect to sides below them unless it's a Derby or a chance for a big percentage booster against WC reserves. They got what they deserved. Too busy hyping themselves up to be the new home of the WAFL GF.

gutsy win.after seeing the last quarter of the reserves i can see why no changes were made for the souths game.strangled souths ball movement and the last five minutes which were spent in souths forward line was epic.so many throw ups and the tackling was great.ball movement was better and gave eddie a better chance of marking.we hopefully  can put together more wins but will need to be better.can't win too many games with 8 goals.may need to rejig  the foraward line.simpson and magro are the only players who seem to be able to kick multiple goals.with dobbo out for the rest of the year i would like to see robbo play  in the forward line..watts to come back after the bye in the backline  will give us some height.i would consider playing blee up forward as well.we nearly lost the game after dominating the third quarter when we  had getable set shots but could only kick six points.we need to be better with our gola kicking.

Yes Chaddy we are dominating long periods of quarters but without the required scoreboard pressure,which came back to haunt us at fremantle oval and against Swans and nearly again on Sunday when we kicked 0.6 in the 3rd quarter,but.I think alternating Robbo between the midfield and forward line is an absolute must as we struggle to put teams away while we're on top.Our backline for the most part is functioning well and i know Taylor North has given away inches and beaten Mason Shaw twice but,Shaw is more of a leading forward and not the robust power forward like a Keitel or Buller who Northy has struggled against and we definitely need Watts back as a more suitable matchup,but you certainly can't question the commitment and desire of Taylor North.
