I don't actually know if he will be cited for this incident or not. But in providing your answers I want you to think about this.

In the AFL we have really good players who we deem stars. We also have players that are probably not considered a 'star'.

So, I ask the question. Where is the threshold? Which player is a star, but only just. Which one has the least amount of star but just enough to be deemed a star?

News.com.au have provided us with their nomination for where the line starts but please, let me know:

  1. Will Keane be cited for this and if so, what will be his punishment and
  2. Where does the line for "star"dom start.

1: Maybe fined for a trip, doubtful they'll try to argue it up to a kick which I believe is a more severe charge and can potentially get you a ban.
2: Every player is a star in the media's click hungry eyes.

Deliberate premeditated tripping with a swinging leg is part of the Irish game.Its against the rules but they do anyway so at least a decent fine to remind him where he is, but one week would not surprise.

Saw JK go down, hobble all the way to the bench, and then they told him he couldn't come off so he had to turn around and make his way back to FF lol
