Likely a lot of weeks out of football.
Ex-No.1 pick sent straight to Tribunal over alleged sickening punch in reserves
yep, intentional punches to the head with any force should start at 12 weeks and work up, 5 weeks is pathetic for what is just an assault.5 weeks is embarrassing. Players who have made head contact in play have had similar bans.
Should be the season.
I laugh but I honestly shouldn’t. Some of the excuses and “mitigating” circumstances raised at tribunal hearings over the years are rippas but that one took the cake.Penalty reduced after it was discovered they played a round of golf together earlier in the week
It sure is confusing the old potential for injury clause.When based on grading using outcome alone that was 3-4 weeks. The VFL argued up to 5 and were pushing for 6 based on the potential outcome of the act. Meanwhile, next door at the AFL, a Melbourne player gets off because he didn't mean to raise an elbow and hit a bloke in the head, with the potential outcome of the act seemingly not the slightest of concerns. I give up trying to understand the justifications for anything anymore.
That itself should get him banned on any sporting field.I laugh but I honestly shouldn’t. Some of the excuses and “mitigating” circumstances raised at tribunal hearings over the years are rippas but that one took the cake.
The one from McCartin today of his bgl I must admit I was flabbergasted. Seriously if all it takes is for a person to have their bgl drop to 3.8 mmol for you to become that aggressive honestly you shouldn’t be allowed on a footy field or you shouldn’t say it with a straight face. I’ve worked in health care and have diabetic family members and to use that as an excuse was terrible imo
Don't go too hard, he's using the Dale Weightman defence.That itself should get him banned on any sporting field.
What guarantee could he give it won't happen again.
For the sake of a few weeks less he has put other diabetic sports people's sporting lives in jeopardy.
What a selfish turd.
