Yes I do. The MRO absolutely reacts to how the commentators treat an incident. With the Ebert bump I linked earlier, they spent the next two breaks analysing it and crucifying Ebert going on and on about how he had to be rubbed out of a long time. This is despite the fact that Perryman got up and took his free kick.Really, you think the media prompt the MRP/MRO to look at incidents, Oh OK - and you do realize that occasionally players get fined for indiscretions during games which are not reported in the media...?
Later in the same game, Ebert copped a high bump. He wasn't able to take this kick afterwards. So by definition that should've been at least careless, high contact, high impact. But no GWS player was even sited by the MRO.
And the example of Jonas getting fined for a tackle on Naughton, who got up and took his kick with no problem. Robbie Gray needed to be looked at by the trainers after Caleb Daniel pinned his arms and put his head into the ground. No fine.
And this is without even getting into Mumford's continual dirty play. If the commentators weren't constantly laughing it off as clumsy Mummy he'd absolutely cop more interest from the MRO.
Toby Greene's been analysed and discussed again and again and again from this same match. With the constant coverage of Dangerfield going off to hospital, and he's not even expected to miss the next match. And oh look, Greene cops a suspension for something that is nowhere near as bad as Dangerfield's hit on Vlaustin in the Grand Final last year.
Dangerfield also go the defence from the commenators on that occasion, and managed to escape any sanction.
