Deserved 2 to be honest but really enjoying the Eagles, Hawks and Tigers melts in here.
I've been enjoying the Cats fans melts, tbh. Been great reading. FWIW I hope Hawkins gets off, purely to make the prelim somewhat interesting. I fear the Tigers are gonna walk it in.

No way Schofield puts in a dodgy medical report.
He famously tweeted about the 'players code', he would have helped out as much as possible you'd think.

I don't like his argument, but be nice to see him get off, make for a better game next week.

Is that his excuse? he was holding me so i whacked him. Tommy is just about dim enough to run with that.
No he was trying to wrench his arm free, that's the argument. The force of it when he did wrench it free, in the act of leading/running, led to the strike. Regardless of the outcome or my opinion, that's the argument.

Watch the whole game, lol. If there's behind the goals vision supplied, maybe we'll see that
Indeed. Tom Hawkins the real victim here. The only key forward who ever gets held, the AFL need to do something about it.

I'm sure Hocking will get a rule change ready for next year. Something along the lines of any player giving away a holding free kick to a Geelong player suffers an automatic 1 game suspension, and said Geelong player is free to have a cheap shot at the same player or one nearby.

Calm down love. I'm not arguing one way or the other. If there's new evidence supplied, then I'll argue with you. Just like David King, my opinion has changed on the basis of the evidence provided. That is how to act in an unbiased way.

It's hard to fully understand what Hawkins is saying he was trying to do without being there in person and hearing his evidence.

But it doesn't read convincingly at all.

If they've been friends since school, why would he intentionally hit him?

I do have to wonder, why so many people have drawn their pitchforks, when we only have one clip supplied. Once all the evidence is supplied, then lose your sh*t. Right now, it's all just rhetoric and hyperbole and most of you sound unhinged. They're looking at vision now, that we have not seen. Once that vision emerges, then we'll have the full story and you can all make your own judgements.

We have footage of him round arming his opponent off the ball.
