Smurfs fans aren't really in a position to claim moral high ground.
No sets of supporters are as all have chanted and sang pretty shitty things over the years. We can (and should) call out floggish behaviour when it occurs which is exactly what happened.

Georgevski is a flog of the highest order, he deserved that but is good theatre. I hope RBB Wanderers hold on.

Corica's reaction is totally understandable.

I still remember Kevin Mus**nt breaking poor Adrian Zahra's leg, which pretty much ruined any chance the lad had of showing his true potential in the top flight, and what was almost as bad/heinous was so many Victory fans at the time took great pleasure/glee at it. Some dickbiscuit actually took the time to print a t-shirt of the despicable incident.

That is probably the moment I started to truly hate Melbourne Victory, it's players and it's supporters.

Admittedly they have evolved/become better since then (probably disbanding the North Terrace had something to do with it) but I will never forget the sickening Zahra injury, and i hope Boy George cops a lengthy ban for what he did last night.

A leg breaker like muscat gave out shouldn't be compared with Georgevskis lash out. Muscat's act was a lot more severe.
Just saying though, Corica's reaction is understandable, esp if he is close/emotionally invested in the players as the fans are.

I haven't seen the game or incident yet though to be honest

OK seen it.
And the tunnel incident.

Was contact from the boot forceful to the face?
Whether the kicked is a kid or not is irrelevant.

Corica does not deserve a ban for shouting. Nothing in it. He knew others would get between him and george. Handbags.

It's not a good look for the game to have a coach lash out at an opposition player like that no matter what circumstance lead to it!
Shows a poor reflection on the league, worse it shows an even poorer reflection on Corica and he is better than that!
