As a non ALF watcher can I ask....after seeing it on the news just now, are your players seriously getting upset that fans are booing some of them?....how soft are modern football players these days if that's the case...lol...maybe they need to start giving them points on the ladder for losing a game also, wouldn't want the poor things getting upset they missed out on competition points that the other team got  ;D ;D

I have no issue with booing during the game but to boo a bloke who’s being awarded the Anzac medal for clearly being the best player on the ground is a disgrace. I don’t go for either team but seeing the Essendon supporters boo like that during a presentation is pathetic.

Time and place for booing. Anzac day during an Anzac medal presentation is poor form.

I wonder what Jobe Watson thought of the booing.....

ahh ok, so was during the medal presentation this happened hey...that’s not on and very poor form. Must have missed that bit on the news, I thought they were just booing during general play going by the news report I half saw.

Was during play caused by a couple of pathetic umpiring decisions late in the game and it spilled over into the medal presentation, was disappointing that it did, but if the AFL want to stop booing then they need to do something about the quality of the umpires, they are so full of their own self importance I think they believe we go to the games to watch them, no excuse tho it was poor form by the Bombers fans and yes I am a Bombers supporter and no I didn't boo during the presentation but did at the crap umpiring decisions during the game, wasn't much better when we walked across the road to the Storm/Warriors game but at least we won that one, just, still there was some very poor decisions in that game too.

I reckon players make a 100 times more mistakes in a game than a umpire.....oh that’s right umpires (as they are called in AFL) are humans as well.

Never said anything about them making mistakes, it's the piss poor decision making process after they have made a mistake. Making mistakes, or which team makes the least amount of mistakes is part of what we go to see, isn't it, in any sport

I don't barrack for either of yesterdays teams but I will say that was the poorest exhibition of umpiring seen this year. The number of plainly wrong decisions and non decisions was staggering. If this was meant to be a " premier" game on the AFL calendar it was let down by the umpiring.
The worst decision made by the AFL was miking the umpires, they need to umpire and not coach, if they tell a player to move back, tell them once and then penalise the the player if they don't comply.
A good game is generally when you don't notice the umpires.
Razor Ray sure loves the sound of his own voice.

Yep, that's it in a nutshell Pottsy.
Still went to two great footy games on the one day, one of my team's just lost and one of them just won, saw two great tributes to our diggers,  I'm happy

few more players than umpires. Shit decisions cost games - in any 'sport'... I don't give 2 Shits about either team from last nights game, but listening to it on the radio -when all teh players stop playing as they know a free kick should have been paid, and its not - there is something extremely wrong with the umpires.

The commentators were nearly having strokes "Surely this time its a free kick" but alas no... They were pissing themselves laughing at the level of umpiring - something is very wrong.


Shame that everyone is talking about the umpiring and booing (as if booing is anything new) - and not ANZAC day itself and the amazing spectacle that it was

Spot on Bird, the Anzac tribute was great, but well and truly  over before the booing started.

Do I detect a very tiny amount of sympathy for the Bombers, hahahaha, duck for cover macca

I'm completely over these theme weekends and their associated BS.
ANZAC theme, donate donate, Good Friday theme, donate donate, Rainbow theme, Respect theme, Indigenous theme, and so on................
How about a plain and simple football theme weekend and forget the BS.

I’m with you, happy for one game over a weekend to be dedicated to a cause....but all game and every team across the weekend does drags on.

Good thing I only have free to air.....otherwise I’d be sucked into watching every game

Especially the ANZAC commemorations. ANZAC Day was last Thursday. Fine with the Bombers/Pies ceremony and carry on on but, today, I will sit down to watch the Eagles/Cats match and the same rubbish will be rolled out.
It is 4 days past ANZAC Day for gawd's sake. The rum and milk has been drunk, 2 up played and the hangover is gone but the AFL insists we must continue to have the false ceremonies foisted on us.

Did you see the complete footage or just this frame?

If you see the complete footage I think Jack realised what he was doing and quickly released his grip.

And no I am not a Tigers supporter, just think this pic doesn't show it in context.

I called it as I was watching the game, the reason I came to my conclusion was the length of time he carried on with it, so disagree there Pottsy.
