Try and learn the rules.
It doesn't have to be a sling tackle.

Was deemed as a dangerous tackle as he pinned his arms and the guy
got concussed.

It's a week off every day of the week.
You can hardly blame someone for not getting the rules. Especially after this week.

What we really have are guidelines that are subject to interpretation and the overall vibe.

I cannot fathom why anyone would want to be an umpire these days.

The AFL loves opining about how we have to be nice to umpires and then makes it absolutely impossible for them.

Late onset concussion, same as Amon after the Naitanui tackle last year.
Then we check every contest in the game to see if he got any hits around the head. Although the Naitanui result doesn't bode well. I think we showed vision of Amon getting a few other hits that could have contributed, but the tribunal didn't want to know about it. If that's the Melbourne medical report we're stuffed.

He’ll have to cop this one I reckon - was the risk he took bringing the guy to the ground with both arms pinned.

Probably due a tight hammy anyway!

This is what i cant understand, wouldn't it be that he didn't suffer any concision if they put him back on the oval?
It's the only argument (I don't think they will challenge).

At what point do we believe the medical report? Straight after the tackle he looked groggy, but medically he was 100% (any questions at all surely he gets tested).

So maybe 10mins later. Nope, still fine

But all of a sudden after the game he is in a bad way.

If you get suspended 100% based on the outcome of a medical report, and there are two completely different reports, it has to be worth a question at least...

Jetta prob needs a rest anyway.

Unfortunatley in this day and age that actions a week.

It was probably the softwst dangeroua tackle ive ever seen. The hard surface would havw contributed to it

Jetts needs to give the calves a rest anyway.

Its just the umpire taking so long to blow the whistle and the action wasnt that bad is the issue here.

That and the Ablett's and Fyfe's getting absolutely nothing for blatant thuggery.

After the tackle he got up and stumbled trying to get up.

If anything the Melbourne medicos stuffed up and didnt do a thorough assessment.. He looked bloody groggy but put back on? They were low on rotations with others concussed.

The ref calling play on play on instead of making a f#*@ing decision is what gives me the sh!ts.

I do know the rules moron and as you will see virtually every week a decision is challenged by the tribunal.
There is no consistency and what’s more I am entitled to my opinion.

So, go and cry with your fellow losing Labor supporters.

I'm entitled to my opinion as well.

Judging by your previous posts, you haven't really got the intelligence
to have a meaningful discussion so you have resort to puerile insults.
