Greene has been constantly defended and lauded by the press. Robbo historically has struggled to say a bad word about him. But I still remember how absolutely definitive they were over the Nic Nat tackling incident. Robbo arms flailing, getting in a huff.

Also, lol at you actually defending this.

"Gaff's fist never actually hit Brayshaw's jaw, it was the force of his chest flying up into his mouth. The video evidence was a refractory trick, caused by light bouncing off the inner lens of the camera making Gaff's fist appear closer to Brayshaw's face". That's how you sound.
I am not defending anything, I am questioning your lunatic claims that others legitimately questioning NicNats action is racist and I assume by association that because Toby Greene is white he gets special treatment.

I would have you note that I have neither questioned NN's actions or defended Greenes.

Drawing a racist link is idiotic.

How have I said that?

If he has eye guaged someone he should be gone 100%.

But no one including Bont or his team mates acts as if he has had someone poking around his eyeballs.

Your outrage is over riding common sense.

They are racist, just as your clubs fans and president were for haranguing Goodes and still have the gall to claim it's "coz he was a dirty player".

If that was the case, Greene would have been getting booed relentlessly, stadium to stadium, before now.

Greene's bad behaviour gets largely ignored or forgotten by the footballing public (until now) because he isn't a vocal black man who intimidates flogs like Eddie, and he absolutely gets lauded as tough and his indiscretions talked down by the likes of Robbo and Brereton and Carey because he is white. That knockabout bloke moniker only seems to apply to a certain set of people. Eye gouging, hair pulling and punching blokes in a single game, no less against a superstar player will finally lead to the media taking notice.

Really?

How should they act? Do they act like he just pulled Bont's hair and slammed his head into the ground?

Like someone who has had fingers in his eyeballs would be a good start.

Yep 100% the hair pull etc is stupid and he should get probably a week for it.
But you see it 100 times in a game.

Like thrashing around, but with your arms pinned?

He's spat at blokes, kicked people on the floor in the head, fly kicked players in the face, punched em in the head as they land from a mark, stomped em with his studs, pulled their hair, but he absolutely would not eye gouge. Even though that's exactly what it looks like.

Ever poked your eye? You grab at it, rub at it.
If he did that his teammates let alone the umps would of been all over it.

At no stage did that happen. Arms weren't pinned the whole game.
Nah, this is you reaching.

He's done just about every dirty act on the field. Some off. He appears to poke Bont in the eye. That's what the vision shows. Given he pulls his hair in the same incident, I'll trust the footage and the report and the marks on Bonts face and throat, over your vibe.

So thats a no on the being poked in the eye before.

No vibe at all. I reckon Bont will confirm it.

His neck isn't his eye, hair pull(very very stupid act) isn't his eye.

Using the racism card for stuff like this cheapens the actual issue of racism in this country and planet.

No deal from me. Just saw the other post saying someone was lying, which wasn't true. I'd be happy if my kid got a free flag. A bit wasteful in the bays full of Bulldog fans, but no skin off my nose.
Fair enough, my bad read. The Giants sales and marketing is a bit clumsy. Maybe due to the unlimited fun’s from HQ.

It’s a shame the MRP has made the call already, as tomorrow morning the Bulldogs are releasing the medical report of Bont booked in for a glass eye replacement & his retirement from the AFL.

But if we were still in finals, he’d play next week no doubt

If Greene is guilty he should be gone.

That's the difference. You lot get your thugs protected

How is incidental contact making Bont a thug? It was a minor accident called correctly as a downfield free kick, an absolute nothing incident only made worse due to an exaggerated medical report coming out later. “He’ll miss multiple weeks”, “doubt for finals”, yet 2 weeks later he’s amazingly 100% fit & raring to go.

Name one thug act that Bont has done in his entire career? Name one thug act from the bulldogs in the game yesterday? I can name at least 1 incident a week from your faux tough club

In 2016, The Western Bulldogs prevented an All-Sydney Grand Final and the chance of GWS bagging a premiership
In 2019, Toby Greene, playing against the Western Bulldogs, prevented the chance of GWS bagging a premiership

We are not useful at much however looking back in history, GWS will have the same number of premiership cups as University have in their VFL trophy cabinet.in part due to the Bulldogs.

Looking forward to repeating this in 2020 and beyond.

Who’s the liar?

You, or your daughter?

Because I was at the game, in a Giants supporters bay and guess what; NO FLAGS under the seats.

No Bulldogs supporters I saw after the game with a free flag; nor did I see them discarded after the game around the precinct.

So; I ask again; who’s the lying POS in the Joffaboy household?
You are dude. Stupid little flags under every second seat on the eastern side at least. Probably didn’t think they needed them under the “giants supporters seats”. No bulldogs fans had any coz they were orange. FFS.
Just admit the giants “fervour” is manufactured. Giveaway flags, “make some noise” on the scoreboard (coz the crowd doesn’t know how or when to cheer). Funny.
And some dude in the cheer squad mic’ed up to try to generate “support”.
Jesus. Just so artificial.

Ever seen an American sports event? The piano at the Baseball, the PA at the basketball...the hockey????

Did you see the crowd there on Saturday? And specifically the demographic of the people wearing orange? The joint was like a Wiggles concert on Saturday there were that many kids there.

That’s the future of the club. The “Make Some Noise” is for their benefit. The infringements being listed on the screen - for their benefit.

The only funny thing was Bont getting stomped by Tobes.

Just admit it, he deserved it after what he did to Haynes.

Missed the Suns game, then wouldn’t have been right for week one if there was no bye. 3 weeks.

It was good luck that there was a bye round. Otherwise he would have missed.

I do love how something keeps propping up the rivalry.

Every time we play there’s always something to argue about after the event.
Yeah i hope the clubs do keep nurturing this growing rivally, i love the spice these games have.

I just pisses me off we went into our shells rather than have a crack back. Going in so inexperienced bit us on the arse.

Yeah i dunno, with Greenes rap sheet they'll go after him imo.
I did say should.

Think he will get a week.

Funny that the Melbourne media, who usually go after him for breathing out the left nostral instead of the right, have been saying it's only worth a fine.
