Apparently the GoDees defense for Fritsch is going to be that Petracca pushed Powell into him, lowering his height which caused the "fend off" to go high, according to the Radio i heard driving home, i would expect that case would be thrown in out in record time, so won't be surprised if he is succesful.

What is this new tactic that facilitates pushing an opposition player TOWARDS your team mate that has the ball?!!

Was he giving Tom a chop out?
Yeah, comedy.

If they go with that defence, they should lose draft picks for wasting every campaigners time.

If you look at the replay, Petracca actually does push him. But I can't see how it would be any different to a bump - if you lead with the forearm/elbow, you should have to take responsibility for wherever it ends up.

Couldn't find a past player thread for Spider so posting this here:

Loved the big man, but at the bottom of that article is a form for any past players to fill in so the club has their details.

Anyone put theirs in yet?

This is pretty interesting. My brain looks like what they're describing (white matter changes usually found in elderly people) and it's due to a chronic neurological condition rather than from concussion. If that's the type of damage head knocks are causing then there are absolutely reasons to be concerned and I can see why we're protecting the head so much these days.
Except if your name is Powell; free hits there.

"To be able to come in and start playing good footy has been really impressive" Todd Goldstein on Tom Powell, Will Phillips & Charlie Lazzaro
