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.

An AFL club lol funny coming from the AFL Fairytale club.

Bont got off didn't he?

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

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.

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.
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.
