You think he got a good bloke discount?
I think he got a dumb sh*t loading, either event by itself would have been a fine, they might have sent him to the tribunal to make it a bigger one but unlikely either in isolation would have been a week.
I think niggling happens all the time, from all clubs, not all players and not all to the same level, I don't think pinching like that does and clearly it doesn't get highlighted if it does
Stomping is pretty rare, seems to happen a couple of times a year at most.
I'm not suggesting that what...
are you including the obscene gesture he's already been fined for in the three issues or something else
From what I read the AFL were looking at a fine to 1 week for the pinching and 1-2 for the stomp
So anything from a big hit to his pocket and a week off to 3 weeks off
I think 2-3 weeks is...
Caddy only got a fine for stomping on a players hand last year
Crowley only got fined for pinching Boomer "about 300 times"
Doing both in the same game obviously leads to a greater penalty but 3 weeks for this when guys are getting less for hits to the head or knocking someone out in a sling...
The pinching happens all the time, I reckon his mistake there was going for it all game and on a Friday night after it had been talked about re Cameron. He's going to cop a whack for the sheer stupidity of what he did there.
Niggle happens all the time in the AFL, taggers and defenders use...
What is Clarko going to do? Burn his Captain to placate Robbo?
You think Stratton is the only player to pinch? Hawks the only club with players that niggle or cross the line?
He's not going to point out who else does it across the league and he's not going to hang his Captain on 360, the CEO...
This is the world we live in now though. Public apology or the mob continues.
They are after Smith now for not throwing him under the bus when they tried to get him to at the press conference today.
You can't just wait for it to go away with the AFL news cycles during bye week. They don't have...
Hodgey did some dumb sh*t on and off field over the journey
Clubs put up with a lot when they player is a winner
Whether they will be able to keep doing that with how the world is turning will be interesting.
Guarantee that Reeve's comments on Stratton were to appease Sponsors.
Used to be...
The AFL say they want to stamp out the niggle, they said so back after all the frees paid in Round 2, ticked them all off and then we've barely seen them pay those frees again.
Crap niggling tactics being used by players is nothing new, same as the umps turning a blind eye to most of it is...
Yeah Saturday night game interstate gets less coverage than Friday night in Melbourne against another Vic club.
The funny thing its nothing new, he's always been an annoying campaigner when he thinks it will put his opponent off. Slaps, punches, pinches all the niggle, across his whole career.
