      I think it's fine to call here. You can easily be up against two pairs, a set or even an overplayed FD.

      Hello cowii,

      Since it's a freeplay and T8 beats us, I guess I'd just make the crying fold. Just ain't worth to fight over a freeplay pot. And as well might some other guys will as well get the odds to Call with any FD or whatsoever, which would be ugly.

      Best regards.
