Nope and the tribunal seems to agree - you can go ahead and appeal for him to get two weeks.
Just to be clear - I would've thought a fine would have been appropriate. But there is no way on earth that is insufficient force - same with Ablett.

There was less force in Dumans strike on Whitfield.

But there’s still those half full supporters that think he was just lucky
They seemed to be hoping Fyfe would get time. Can't follow some of our supposed supporters.
Think they might be thinking without Fyfe there would be more chance of a loss and further ammo to lay the boots into Lyon.

Why aren’t you arguing with the others who agree with me? He didn’t touch his head at all and it was in the game - was nothing malicious about it. Those saying he would get weeks must want AFL to be a zero contact sport. How can you give weeks to a player for something like that, compared to Liam Ryan’s punch in round 1?!?

I think you’re into something - I didn’t spend much time on here last season, and now I’m remembering why ..

Because you quoted me and I'm responding. Only 1 person has agreed with you so far. I didn't say he would get weeks either - maybe you should read my posts. The issue I have is that sort of impact being graded as insufficient is very worrying - its almost encouragement to keep doing it. He also clearly got him in the head.

He likes walking the tightrope does Fyfe.

Every season he seems to either be charged or close too it.

He escaped a similar hit a few weeks ago on Ed Richards for the bulldogs.

We obivously don't want him to change the way he plays but there is a clumsiness to a lot of his defensive actions

two straight weeks Fyfe should have been binned, he needs to curb his aggression a little, walking a tightrope a little too much this season

No idea how McGovern got a fine tbh. Off the ball sure but a complete nothing incident.

Thought Fyfe and Ablett would be fined.

Maybe that was just me thinking negativity. No way either was getting suspended after last week.

I sit in row 20 on that wing, and it was the loudest collision I heard all game. Fyfe stopped playing and went to see how Lynch was because he thought he had ironed him out. Lucky that somehow it connected in the right spot to avoid injury.

Good thing for us that little Gazza has set the bar for what the superstars are allowed to get away with.

I sit on the second level on the wing Fyfe hit Lynch and it looked like a big collision where I was but I missed Fyfe’s raised elbow. When I saw the replay after the game in slow motion, I thought it was 2 weeks so really surprised be got off TBH. Probably deserves a week or fine for the action but I’m not complaining. Weird he got off for this but got weeks when he hit Greenwood.

The inconsistencies of the MRO are a joke.

Don't need to. Weird thing is that there's melts on this, the Freo board.

No melts from me...Happy Fyfe was cleared. I simply dont understand the MRO at all.
The raised elbow however is something Fyfe needs to get out of his game......
