Sounds like a pretty rough night huh?
Alright. deep breath.
I grabbed a pizza and a couple of Fat Pixies and sat down on the couch on Friday night.
The Chooks and Bunnies were on in the league, the Rabbitohs were far too good, so most of my attention was on the Cats & Lions.
What. A. Match.
Before it all happened, we had people being kicked out of the stadium due to COVID protocols, that included a heap of Lions fans.
Not a good start.
On the field the Lions were wasteful again in front of goal in the first half but they just kept coming, they showed plenty of fight.
2 points down with less than a minute remaining and the ball gets sent forward.
Well, we all know what happens.
If you're brave, fast forward to around the 7 minute mark below.
I think the umpire would now admit he got it wrong.
That doesn't really help us, does it.
The worst part?
Guess what my Friday night multi was...
Yep, you probably guessed it. Souths Sydney & the Brisbane Lions, paying about $5.75.
Lions coach Chris Fagan said that was one of the best games of AFL Footy you're likely to see, he's right.
What a ripper.
The Lions now 0-2, wouldn't have picked that. In fact, like most of the faithful, I had them winning the premiership.
Obviously, they still can.
Despite the fact the Lions lost and my multi ticket is metaphorically in the bin, I feel for the umpire, such a howler of a call.
I wonder if he'll offer to pay my rent this week?
