I wonder why that is??

TOBY'S TRACK RECORD
Total: 16 charges

Suspensions: Six matches

Fines: $18,850

2012: Made ineligible for the NAB AFL Rising Star after he was suspended for one match for an ugly bump on Brisbane veteran Jed Adcock.

2012: Fined $1200 for his role in a melee during Greater Western Sydney's clash with Melbourne.

2013: Cops a $1950 fine for making reckless contact with an umpire in a game against Gold Coast.

2014: Was fortunate to walk away with a one-match suspension for striking Adelaide midfielder Richard Douglas, with the offence classified as a level-three sanction.

2014: Fined another $1200 for engaging in a melee, this time against the Western Bulldogs.

2015: Hit with a $1500 fine for spitting in the direction of Richmond midfielder Anthony Miles.

2015: Another year, another $1500 fine for engaging in a melee, this time against Fremantle.

2016: Fined $1000 for misconduct, having pushed Port Adelaide youngster Brendon Ah Chee into a fence.

2017: Hit with a $1000 misconduct fine in the pre-season, having given Sam Wright a slap to the face late in the game.

2017: Fined $1000 for striking Port Adelaide midfielder Dan Houston, with the charge graded as low impact to the head.

2017: Hit with a two-match striking suspension after clipping Western Bulldogs midfielder Caleb Daniel with an extremely late spoil attempt.

2017: Forced to serve another two-match suspension after striking Richmond defender Alex Rance to the jaw with a jumper-punch.

2017: Controversially offered a $1500 misconduct fine for his 'Jackie Chan' kick to the face of Western Bulldogs forward Luke Dahlhaus.

2018: Fined $2500 for misconduct, having appeared to drop his knee into Sydney midfielder Isaac Heeney during their elimination final.

2018: Fined another $2500 for misconduct the very next week during a semi-final against Collingwood, where he was involved in a back-and-forth with midfielder Taylor Adams.

2019: Slapped with a $2000 fine for striking, having handed Melbourne midfielder Clayton Oliver a tummy tap in an off-the-ball incident.
So? That doesn't mean he should be charged with eye gouging if he hasn't done it.

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.
Lol. Thats just funny. This isnt America. The joint was 60-70% blue. And we didnt need to be coached to cheer.

Bont was trying to smother or tackle, was late and couldnt pull up. Accident every day of the week. Wasnt even fineable. Your medicos played haynes for the rest of the game and couldnt get a Drs report to the AFL in time. What you eventually got was a dodgy Drs report anyway "out for weeks","wont play finals" - Really? Then who was that playing on saturday? His twin? FFS - Let that bump go, admit there was nothing to it and your lot tried unsuccessfully to manufacture something which wasnt there (like your fan support). And then admit that TG is a dirty cowardly grub and maybe we can start a rational conversation.

Has TG ever had a crack at someone bigger than himself? Who wasnt lying on the ground?

Very nice touch, looking around to make sure the umps and dogs werent watching before going in for seconds. Nothing at all accidental about TG. Hes a total grub. Heaths a lunatic but at least hes open about it.

He hasnt been. Its "Serious Misconduct". For a number of seperate incidents. If all he did was hair pull hed get a fine. If all he did was push bonts head into the ground hed get a fine, if all he did was scratch hed get a fine, if theres video of eye gouging he'll get weeks. Roll the hairpull, the head lean, the scratching and eye gouging and he should get lots of weeks.

Add his disgraceful record and he should get lots of weeks.

But its finals and he plays for the AFL club so who knows?

Hair pull and face rub gets a fine according to Thursday's game.

But can see him getting a week.

Bont got off because anybody with half a football brain could see it was an accident. Thursdays game precedent means seperate incidents can get fined, my point (which you are so obviously choosing to ignore) was that TG's been cited for a bunch of incidents (which happening seperately would likely be fined) happened in one rolling continuing incident, interrupted only by an obvious look to see if the umps not looking "OK, IM clear hes not loking, now Ill go in for another go", the entirety of TG's actions have been rolled into one charge. labelled Serious. TG's actions dont have a precedent that I can recall.

You know this and youre just blowing smoke coz you know he should get lots of weeks. And his record doesnt help. You also know youre a manufactured club thats gotta try to manufacture support at games (giveaway flags anyone? Gotta get some orange in the stands somehow, right?)

Thanks.

Bont - no injury.
Haynes - fractured larynx.

You are a flog.
No injury? He has a black eye & multiple scratches, for about the 500th time the Haynes injury was a freak occurrence for something that is seen in every AFL game due to being a contact sport. He didn't line him up & try to go through him, unfortunately that is too much for you newbies to the game to even understand

Time will tell, but are you forgetting West Coast getting thumped, by an even greater margin and in an arguably worse manner, at the very same ground 2 years ago?
West Coast definitely regressed the following year but fair point. Probably need English to continue developing at a similar level to be better next year.

There is footage of Bont copping friendly fire from later in the game doing the rounds. Can you clearly say that he got up from this incident with Toby with the black eye??

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.
I bet you defended the Goodes booing.

Regressed so much they won the premiership!

English and a whole host of others should continue to improve next year, future looking good at the dogs.

I'm not outraged and NN was suspended for the tackle.

his is a pre-existing gripe. There's a different way guys like Lindsay Thomas or Adam Goodes were talked about in the media v say Mumford, Rance or Toby Greene.
Wtf? Goodes is rightly loved by 90% of the media.

And he was never Boo'd at a Giants game.

Greene is, rightly or wrongly, smashed by the AFL media.

I think you are looking for something here that isn't there.

Racism is a big problem in this country and the planet but has nothing to do with this.
