''However, the AFL's legal representative, Jeff Gleeson QC, said the strike was sufficient enough to cause any player pain, regardless of their pre-existing injuries.''

Yeah, nah.

Ooh hard man is back.

Where did this reputation come from? Name one other incident. Lamb also found guilty of striking so stupid thread.
Don’t be so sensitive Marcus.
There’s no need to jump in and defend yourself whenever someone expresses an opinion different to your own.
It’s becoming obsessive.
It was as weak as piss by you on the weekend and you know it.

It’s pretty odd that lamb was found guilty of anything given Carlton fans and random bigfooty flogs (those two aren’t mutually exclusive) who have probably never been hit like that are adamant Bont dove.


I bow to your superior logic folks.

You should be happy. The fine effectively means Lamb played for free. So in a way Carlton didn’t pay for another sh*t truck game. That’s just as sound logic as suggesting Bont dove so you know it’s good

Fact: lamb guilty of striking.

Opinion: bontempelli dove.

Forgive me for having to talk down to you to explain the difference but I feel you wouldn’t understand otherwise

Didn't Bont shove Lamb in the face with his forearm? I never saw the replay only watching it live so I could be mistaken.

If he did why no fine?

Why wasn't he fined? Starting to get a reputation for playing things up
Evidence of other instances of this or are you making sh*t up? Bont was clearly playing in pain with his back all game, so any sort of medium contact would cause a great deal of pain.

I was waiting for someone to deflect. I started the diving thread on the mainboard and I put him in. I don't pretend I don't see things just because of a jumper
Not deflecting at all. Just pointing out how factually incorrect your "Starting to get a reputation for playing things up" statement. by bringing up a player who actually has a reputation for staging.

Again you are deflecting. Start another thread for that or else deal with the fact your star player dove like a swan

Hey tough guy, did lamb get found guilty of striking Bontempelli or did Bontempelli dive? Can’t be both.

I’ll await your judgement on how hard lamb hit too, because we all know you are big and strong and wouldn’t have taken it

Bont goes for the head, gets a push back & dives.

Agree that these divers need to start getting fined, it's embarrassing for the game

It wasn't a push, it was a strike (as determined by both the MRP and the tribunal).

Are you suggesting both players get fined for the same one-sided incident?
Are you saying that now because your choosing to use it as gospel that every single mro decision is 100% correct then

Not at all, they're far from perfect. But given you're asking why he wasn't fined for diving, perhaps look to how the MRP and tribunal judged the incident.

They are more interested in appeasing mothers than properly adjudication of force.

Here we go. You are so tough. Tell me how hard lamb hit bontempelli
The diminutive Lamb hit Bont with the force of a truck, sending him sprawling forward. Impressive - I wouldn't have thought Lamb capable of generating such force even with a run up and full body hip & shoulder

You can deflect all you like, but deep down you know it was soft.
He went down easy.
