Have a look at where Mitchell's left leg is and where Gray's right arm is.SAM Mitchell has denied any suggestion he spat at or near Port Adelaide's Sam Gray during the third quarter of West Coast's thrilling elimination final win at Adelaide Oval.
The alleged incident occurred during the last minute of the third term of the epic clash. Mitchell gave away a free kick after falling onto Gray's back on the wing and hunched over as the Power forward was face-down on the ground near his feet.
Mitchell spat as Gray slowly got to his feet but his saliva didn't make contact with the Port player.
You can clearly see from the picture he was hunched over that the action was not directed at Robbie Gray
It's called "foreshortening" - same thing that got Nick Dal Santo, or so he claims...Clearly an optical illusion as a result of a 2D image. I bet he's missed him by more than a metre, is clearly not looking at Gray, so I don't know why this is even being mentioned.
You mentioned "dumbest posts in bigfooty history" - self prophesying per chance ?the replies on the first page, especially the ones like "lol it's an optical illusion he's actually nowhere near him" are amongst the dumbest posts in bigfooty history, obviously sam mitchell's husband and close friends defending him. mitchell is a dog campaigner, but i don't blame him, he ends his career thinking he waltzed all over port adelade (in the second half of his career anyway) disrespecting us with diving and cheap shots and stuff like this, but as i said i can't blame him, that's as much our fault for letting him do it
