Speccies look great in marketing material and get the crowd up and about, so we can't start punishing thoseSo how long before the knees up in a marking contest is stopped?
Been saying it for years that the AFL is playing lip service to head injuries and concussion while they still encourage players to run, jump and knee someone to the back of the head.and we all cheer.
This action occurs multiple times in every game. Jumping and using the knee in a marking contest.
So just how far is the AFL going to take this issue?
Coming at it from a player welfare perspective there's no good faith argument to allow men verging on 100kg to put their knee into the back of another bloke's head.
It's the same type of hypocritical nonsense as clubs and the AFL branding themselves as community and family friendly and then raking in untold millions from pokies and gambling advertising.
