"Reporter Tom Browne on Monday told Triple M McCartin is likely looking at a suspension between four and eight weeks. “It can only be described as a pretty wild, Andrew Gaff, Barry Hall-like punch,” he said."

Surely Gaff has a case for slander.
Looked similar to Gaff in the fact that it was a swinging arm motion, after doing the same thing to get him to release his jumper.

Paddy should claim delayed concussion which means he had no real idea what he was doing, you know, like Jordan DeGoey. He must have a head knock up his sleeve to draw on, the guy has the field awareness of a headless scarecrow.

legitimately concerned about the mental wellbeing of some of these nuffs going off the deep end
To be fair, it has been widely reported the same gesture has been used to show solidarity among white supremecists. I'm sure NicNat for one would know the connotation other than the circle game and not be keen on it.

Thank god those Brisbane Lions scumbags roped Jamaine Jones into their white power signalling session or everyone would have known right away what they were up to!

Send them back to Pauline in Queensland before they corrupt the lot of us!

I don't want the players to take no joy in their victories, but it'd be nice if they'd stop doing stupid jokes in derby photos.
Which is pretty much the point. The boys are showing bit of ignorance or lack of respect for the community in general here.

This has no legs at all. Just a couple of people scouring photos to find something they can misinterpret and get upset about on behalf of someone else who probably couldn't give a rats arse about. Cancel the cancellers!

Someone on Twitter is already tagging Hungry Jacks asking for them to stop sponsoring us. 😆 but in all honesty, it obviously had no racist meaning by the players (was a common game in high school where if you got someone to look at it you could punch them) but probably best not to do that symbol any more.

The Qanon sh*t started on 4chan too. A lot of seedy sh*t going on there.
And the vast majority of people have no idea or interest in any of it

Here’s the thing, if you genuinely think the players were using that sign as a white supremacy signal (they weren’t) then call them out for it. But if the thing they were doing meant something completely unrelated then why even raise it unless you’re being a dickhead to fabricate some sort of gotcha moment
