Was he pushed in the back? Yes.Was Grimes pushed - slightly
Did he stumble - yes
Did he exaggerate this - yes
Is that 'flopping' - No
And tnere you have it...should we be penalising 'exaggerated contact'? Only if your name is Papley and Clarkson doesn't like it.
Looked like a very blatant dive at face value. Obviously there was additional footage that the media declined to show or didn't have access to.Difficult to fathom this. I’ve yet to see or hear one neutral commentator or fan on here who thought Grimes didn’t dive.
Guess Diving season is open now.
Well look, at least Stringer did something on the weekend. Good on him for getting within cooee of the ball.
Just need to read through any of these types of threads and you'll see there's plenty of them out there.Just read that man was charged over the Grimes incident. Fancy feeling so incensed and aggressive that you have to threaten an individual playing football because of what he did. You’ve got to wonder about the priorities in ones life. To feel so much anger in the context of a football game. People need to get a life, get perspective and grow up. Let’s hope this idiot hasn’t bred.
Or the Tribunal have decided that in 2020 they wont bother penalising players for anything other than actually dangerous and damaging actions.Looked like a very blatant dive at face value. Obviously there was additional footage that the media declined to show or didn't have access to.
I agree, and thats where it should have stopped. If a player wants to make a flog if himself by waving his arms around....have at it.Was he pushed in the back? Yes.
Did it affect the contest? Yes.
That makes it a valid free kick.
Agreed. Faking it is a completely different think to milking/exaggerating it.I agree, and thats where it should have stopped. If a player wants to make a flog if himself by waving his arms around....have at it.
What needs to be policed are the 'mock' head high shots that can cause retaliation and reports.
So you agree it was a push in the back?
Getting made an example of because he is a nothing name. If it was Dangerfield or Martin I’d bet it all that neither would get suspended. Absolutely no way either would get rubbed out if the same tackle was applied with the same outcome.Unfashionable club, yes. Obscure player, no. What is Alex Neal-Bullen doing this week?
