Mate. It's a joke how protected the Swans are, particularly Goodes.
Why is Goodes loved so much? He's loved more than Ablett.
Yes, Ablett is protected too. Umpires dare not give a free kick against him because they think he's the second coming of Christ.
in the second quarter, Goodes took on two defenders, gets wrapped up and drops it. the dogs players start streaming forward thinking they'll get a holding the ball call, umpire puts his arm out the other way, I think the call he made was too many men in the tackle - free kick Goodes. Goodes is waiting for the ball as the dogs player throws it, Goodes then backpedals a few more steps, so that the ball doesn't reach him on the full in the end. 50 metre penalty and subsequent goal to Goodes - swans only goal of the quarter.
