Barty returns; Serena no threat? Osaka to exit early?
Totally.Well that’s on the AFL and not Trent Cotchin.
Yes lynch is the only forward to ever crash a pack....Totally.
If I'm a defender that gets taken high from behind by Tom Lynch which results in concussion (Sean Dempster, Matt Maguire, etc. etc.) I would be suing the AFL instantly, and using footage from that game and from Hardwick's press conference as irrefutable proof that the AFL encourage dangerous head high contact.
Two separate incidents. Two blood rules. Zero free kicks.
Then Hardwick wraps up Lynch for crashing the packs as instructed.
Not only no report for careless or reckless, high contact - NOT EVEN A FREE KICK!!
How would the AFL have a leg to stand on when they're sued when they encourage this stuff??
How much did Burgoyne get for his sling tackle?
I think Cotchin will get that much
Two weeks minimum******* hell, I've seen intentionally dangerous moves in wrestling not look like they're trying to hurt someone that badly.
4th timeLynch will be saved by the fact it was barely any contact and it was to the shoulder/collarbone and not the face. A couple of inches over and hes probably gone. Very silly act, but there's nothing in the force or impact, its negligible in that regard so will get off.
That huge river in Egypt has been diverted to punt roadPffft, Lynch was pushed off balance and put up the forearm at the last second to protect himself. Kinda like Hawklns - Balta - Soldo but it took out a teammate instead.
Cotchin a little bit naughty but no strike, no injury, no suspension.
Lynch, not newsworthy.
High contact with intentFor those likening Cotchin's conduct to Long, notice how Cotchin didn't bump.
Cotchin maybe but I really don't think that they will suspend Lynch for that. It was a low impact contact.
Local footy he would have and should have been sent offThere was already a free kick. He was tackled to stop him taking advantage. You can argue maybe its 50m penalty but that's not how the rules work.
So I play against your son after doing it last week and getting warned and do that to him IN THE SAME CIRCUMSTANCESIt’s literally what the AFL want you to do with the whole ‘choose to bump and make high contact’ ruling.
You can argue it’s 50 and if it was in play definitely a free for high contact, but in no way is it a suspension.
I don't have a son.So I play against your son after doing it last week and getting warned and do that to him IN THE SAME CIRCUMSTANCES
RubbishI don't have a son.
Footy is footy. High tackles happen. Doesn't mean a bloke deserves a week. We move on. Imagine if every free for high contact was an automatic suspension.
Have another look, Lynch gets pushed off balance at the last minute and puts the arm up to protect himself in the collision.Rubbish
If you were old enough Gould be livid
If he broke his jaw or teeth or worse a spinal injury you'd be lawyering up
Duty of care
Oh and the difference between Lynch s elbow to Patton that dimmas so rapt in and
What a crock
