Happy for Bailey
basically petracca shoved the north guy which rammed him head first, unbalanced and unprotected in fritsches path, no one can be sure but if fritsch didnt lift his arm as a bumper bar there may have been an ugly head clash. jack revolt could easily have got a week for shoving an opponent into aarts on friday and hawkins shove blokes into on coming traffic all the time....afl needs to clamp down as its a dangerous tactic, im glad fritsch got off.

How this bloke got off is mind boggling . Any way given the bloke Fritsch got came back on and played may have helped in overturning the ban . Feel for the umps , what used to be clear rules are now open to far too many variable interpretations .

Agree, I hate the shoving players into oncoming traffic. Hawkins does it every week.
