This is incredibly annoying.i hope we are appealing. It looked absolutely accidental to me. It was graded as intentional, Low impact and High Contact

When you look at the footage a few times it does look intentional that he threw his elbow, but maybe was aiming at the chest and went high. Probably no way to get off. Ughhh. Big set back as Esava plays foward. Time for Freddy

What about Jenkins or Stanley?
How far away are they?

During last nights press conference Scott ruled out Stanley for this week

And reading the injury update last week, I believe they are hoping to give Jenkins's a run in the scratch match this weekend - his first match experience since the season recommenced

Was going to be tough with Hawkins, now virtually impossible.
% IS CRITICAL, but could we forfeit this game, lose the 4 points, but % loss not so bad?
Of course not.
Who knows, backs to the wall, we can only hope, but watching what WCE did to the Pies does not inspire any optimism after a shortened recovery.

Frankly, I hope we don't appeal it. There was no provocation, it was just undisciplined. The club should take him to task. It happens too often and each time he laments he needs to show more discipline. He's an integral part of the team and he's let his team mates down - again. And I'm a Hawk fan.

Agree. He is like SJ. Critical, undisciplined and almost recalcitrant wrt footy discipline. Can only hope he needed a brief week off with soreness.

Pretty sure at didn't "sack" Stevie J, especially as he was out of contract

We may not have re-signed him, but that doesn't mean he was sacked
Wasn't there something early in his career where he was given 'time out' to get his sh*t together? Or am I misremembering?
