"Mr Gleeson is now going through three examples put forward by Sydney and disputing the similarities.
He says Astbury and Daniher each made contact to their opponents' shoulders"

Lmao... So they were both graded as "high contact" at the time but now they only hit the shoulder ?

Nothing like a bit of historical revisionism to consolidate your case.

The footage shows Daniher contacts nothing but Rampe's head. Is this considered the same as a real court, because surely you can't just lie about it?

Say what you will about the precedents this year, but the fact that Buddy can play this week after that action says there's something seriously wrong.
Maybe so, but you have to blame the three decisions made earlier in the year for Buddy getting off. Without those 3 decisions he is not playing this week.

I don't think you'll find many swans fans would disagree. He deserved at least a week.

Hopefully the clowns at the AFL can actually get their house in order after this embarrassment and start stamping this sh*t out of the game.

Yep, he definitely deserved a week, but it was the AFL's own actions in not suspending the other players when they did something similar that has created this situation.
