I can understand the frustration. Greens acts are just about as spineless as you can get, and the system has wacked him with a feather duster.
GAblett with multiple elbows etc., plenty of examples of the MRO getting it wrong in the eyes of most supporters.

Can hardly blame fans for expressing frustration when dog acts go unpunished. There might be better ways to express your point though.

I was quite surprised that Greene only got a fine. It certainly serves to illustrate how extremely unlucky Setters was to cop a 2 week suspension for a legitimate tackle.

Dogs fans not liking the Toby Greene Tribunal verdict



Every club has these brainless, knuckle dragging type of feral 'supporter'

There has always been something deeply sinister and disturbing about an 'eye for an eye' type of revenge in my opinion.
Lachie Hunter did the same exact thing Toby did and got suspended. I'd be angry too if I were the Dogs.

The only feral here is the bloke playing for the AFL's toy club.

Logical Dog? Martin nominating Carlton

Sometimes culture plays a part in decisions. After being in GC with their policy of playing players on talent rather than effort/ability/form, perhaps Martin wanted to take it easier than our high performance program. He can go there on similar money but avoid the scrutiny of poor performance. Just look at Daisy Thomas, left Pies for Carltank, was then able to take it easy for a few years. Bolton came along and demanded more from him and instead he just coasted, knowing he was almost undroppable.

We are talking about a king hit behind play here. Surely we don't want to see another John Greening or even worse, David Hookes style tragedy.

Some of them seem to advocating for that kind of 'punishment' to be handed out to Toby Greene, but i am sorry, that is going way, way too far.

An Eye for an Eye makes the World go Blind (or words to that affect)

I get why they are pi**ed at Greene, but I simply cannot advocate any kind of on field violence/retribution against him

I post and read elsewhere on BF in an AFL thread and these gems came up.

Bulldogs fan:
"Jack Martin has chosen Carlton."

Collingwood fan:
"What a fool"

Fremantle fan:
"$$$"

Carlton fan:
"Dogs offer was higher"

Geelong fan quoting the first post
"Poor fella ;)"


Adelaide fan:
"or maybe he's just going to the club that is offering him the most money and the afl media for some reason wants to make up another story to romance it up."

I have gone to reply a few times but haven't. You really cannot educate ignorance. Sure, the Crows supporter would love to think the AFL media would make up a straight lie to romanticise a story, helps them think the media has been lying about how bad things are at their club.

You don't want to take yourself down to their level of idiocy.

We're done. I'm only coming in to drunkenly rant about the absolute corruption that is occuring tonight. This fix is ABSOLUTELY in. So many non calls and dubious free kicks in Geelong's favour. We've had more frees but that's through fair straight forward calls. No high on Yeo was the tipping point for me. As soon as that was left I absolutely knew the fix was in. I bet Rioli is innocent too. And I bet Hawkins gets let off.

fu** the VFL and fu** this hateable Geelong team. I wish there was a viable option for the non-Vic teams to form a breakaway league but not in my lifetime. Peace out

Are you in the wrong thread or did someone else write this?

That's absolute gold.

Did he write this when it was 20-7 free kicks their way?

"What a mockery of the sport that the AFL allows four quarters of not only total thuggery and a blatant disregard of the rules by GWS, but some of the most one sided, diabolical umpiring ever seen. Truly disgusting. This is no longer the same sport I grew up with. What have they done. Truly speechless, not so much as a Lions fan (it transcends that) but as a footy lover in general. Honestly, what a sickening display and debauchery of the sport we love."
