Its a point of view I've got time for, just not sure errant knees have caused that many serious injuries. But then again have sling tackles? Probably not. The way that flying for speccies is coveted (rightly) does make all the hand wringing about arm pinning and slinging look a bit inconsistent.Well there is this from just a few weeks ago not back of head but knee to head/jaw it all comes under the same errant knee to head:
Tell me the difference of "look" and "duty of care" there? Majak could of stayed down, no need to raise the knee, 3 weeks down to 2 I hear the MRP say in future cases.
I remember one from a long time ago big Pebbles came steaming out on a lead and put his knee through a defenders back of head and knocked him out cold stretchered off.
I have also seen them (knees to heads/faces) have players faces caved in and the equivalent of a car crash victim at 60km (Hird, S.Heart and Brown likely all suffered concussion too but injuries far too serious to see them play on anyway and no rule back then), I have seen someone lose a kidney to one and almost die from it.
All theses are far worse then the initial concussion (if brown indeed had it) then Kruezer or Brown who likely wont have any further ill effects (as long as repeated episodes don't happen multiple times a year).
