Of course Natanui gets away with absolutely pummeling a guy into a fence. Notice how there was absolutely zero media attention towards the incident on the official AFL site.

Now if it was Mitch Robinson or Nick Robertson who did that...

Didn't Daniel Rich get suspended 2 games for shoving a guy into the fence a few years ago?

Pull hair = $1000 fine

Throw opponent into the fence = $1000 fine

Right.

Agree that Nic Nat should miss a game for that.

Found it a bit surprising just how easily he threw Merrett into the fence. Like a man and a little boy. I know he's a giant and you see him destroy players on field all the time, but it still took me back a bit.

Such an irrational reaction on the Suns board.

Is he meant to lie and say the Gold Coast is an AFL cultural Mecca? It’s not.

It’s clearly a reason why frontier clubs struggle with retention. Some players crave being in the bubble.

It was a comment on the market, not a shot at the actual club (something McKenna was happy to do).

I’m sure Fages will be despairing to hear that Mr Bods is angry at him though. Bodsy is permanently angry about something or other... so it may as well be Fages this week. A chip the size of a blue whale on his shoulder.
I think it was taken out of context. All he needed to do was add "yet" on the end of his sentences. Isn't this why the AFL set a team up on the Gold Coast? They have a rather good grass football there.

Couldn't agree more . When I saw it I thought immediately he was gone.

And what's with the fine for pulling someone's hair ?? So you can punch someone in the guts or throw them into the fence but not pull their hair , it was hardly anything more than a gentle tug either.

Well, Jono Brown got fined $1200 that time he intentionally yanked on Harry O'Brien Heritier Lumumba's hair at the Gabba, so they are remaining relatively consistent with that aspect. I can't recall if Lumumba was charged anything for bending Brown backwards over the fence though. Serial pest Hayden Ballantyne was also fined $900 in another hair pulling incident against Lumumba.

But intentionally grabbing an opposition player by the throat and ragdolling them into a fence being worth the same fine? Yeah nah, that's wrong. NicNat should've seen a week for that.

Would be interesting if someone did the same to Dusty 3 minutes into the first quarter and he had didn’t play the rest of the game.

Eugh I nearly vomited in my mouth a little

The advantage rule needs a tweak where its play on until the ump stops it if they don't have the advantage, or choose not to take it....
