Embarrassing dive. He should be fined and harden up. Hopefully Chris Scott has a quiet word to the young glass jaw........which we all know he won't. That was right up there with Dangers disgraceful dive.
Anyone who says it is a dive is utterly stupid. Clear hit to the head with a f**** elbow.

Nodifferent to hawkins.

Richmond deliberately tried to rough miers up after half time so houli elbows him to the ground behind the play. Absolutely no different to hawkins.

If he does not go there needs to be an inquiry.
Actually it is slightly less contact than the 2 that Ablett got nothing for, except that Ablett ran off his line to sideswipe a player with an elbow. Didn't see you crying about those 2.

He was trying to fend off the shepard, not sure how you could even call it a hit.
You even see it? There was heaps of lines to run, Houli ran straight at Miers. Miers, who carved up the Richmond defence in the first half. Wonder why Houli lined him up? And Houli was already open, so if he wanted to get the ball all he had to do was put his hand up.

Miers turned to brace for the hit that was coming. Didn't expect an elbow to the head. What are you saying? You see someone running in lining you up, and you have to keep perfectly still to make it even easier?

You lost. Quit rewriting history and get over it.

Richmond were better. Let it go.

Houli did nothing wrong. He’s been cleared. No one cares

I love geelong supporters, the same ones who were claiming the west coast bloke took a dive after hawkins full on belted him last week now want houli hung because their own bloke took a dive after a slight bump
I love one eyed supporters. When it is one of theirs there is nothing to see. When it is another club "he belted..smashed..dumped" . A forearm raised and making contact is a slight bump and the player not expecting contact goes down is a dive. Rose colored glasses pal make you read like a moron.

He did dive. How do you not expect contact when you move in someone’s way...?

Grimes went down to slight contact deserved a fine
Hawkins gave a fella a full roundarm deserved his suspension.
Miers stepped into Houli so to say he didn't expect contact is laughable but yes your rose tinted glasses do make you read like a moron champ

Houli whacked him in the neck with an elbow. Miers didn’t dive. Not reportable at all but should have been a free kick for high contact.

Bahahaha. Miers looked at Houli before Houli looked at Miers. Miers moved off his line before Houli. How was Houli the one lining Miers up when Miers was the one to move to make contact with Houli before Houli even looked at Miers? 😂

Lol most neutral fans, including us Carlton fans who have a healthy dislike of Richmond, thought there was nothing in it.

Dive,dive, dive. Went down quicker than a submarine. Nearly as quick as Diverfield er Dangerflop. He should take notice how to do it better from the expert. Dangerflop is a selfish bastard, keeping his tricks to himself. It's a team game after all. But floppy only thinks of himself.

You have neutrals actually agreeing with Richmond fans for the first time ever.
That should tell you all you need to know
Cos they listen to the commentators. Commentators hung hawkins and have blamed the victim of thr houli incident. Richmonds treatment of miers after half time was disgusting.

Are you serious, you really need to have another look at it through your good eye not your one eye
