Oh, I forgot about Haggers this morning suggesting Merrets finger might've been caught in Nic's hair.

Mate, at least view the footage before you pass comment.

Speaking of, I just watched the vid on Fox Sports site - Yeoy smashes Shiel in the fracas. I think that's what the free kick was given for. And some bloke's bucket of chips gets sent flying :)

Free kick to NN. Yeo overturned it flying the flag. But angry Yeo is good Yeo. I'll allow it

Live I thought this may have been the case. Then the replay (and slo-mo replay) showed the truth.

Anyway, MRO should just get on with issuing the fines already.

Yeah we know Mr "please calculate acceptable weight and height difference of player before tackling him" Christian is known for his gReAT DeCiSIoN MaKIng.
I have this feeling that for some reason Christian despises WCE and always seems to come down hard on us😡 In saying that though do many players actually get suspended during a finals series. Can remember in the past Barry Hall being allowed to play when he should have been suspended??

The ******* umpires should have just let it go without the reports. There was no need to report either of those minor indescresions as Christian was there at the ground and would have made the decision the same night as is the current model during finals. Now the yellow maggots have got involved all it has done is prolong the process. NN was getting a free kick before Yeo got it overturned so why the hell would they go and report him?
I just wonder if it was a directive given through the earpiece to ensure ongoing media speculation from the attention whoring league? Umpires rarely put anything in the book these days so it is bewildering they have put these 2 on report which in all likelihood will result in nothing more than fines.

He's taking his time this week to wait for the medical report, instead of assuming the impact.

nekminnit Merrett has a bruised larynx from being choked like a bitch & broken back. NN deregistered.

Was coming on here to write the same thing! How can you receive a free kick but also be reported??? Absolute bulls**t!

Then they said on Fox Footy Christian has to wait for the umpires report and statement etc - umpire thought it was a free kick to NN... didn’t give a free for his retaliation (Yeo gave away that free...).

What is the point of this ARC bulls**t if we still need to wait ages for these monkeys to make a decision!

Ok so we got push Christian to hurry up in case Merrett gets scans and something did go wrong. That way the "quirk" will save him. But he didn't do the weight/height calc before throwing Merrett into the fence. Of course we have to be thankful a chair wasn't there...

should be the easiest decision he's had all year...
