That video includes an interview with Stratton saying it's "not a good look for the game, not a good example to the kids, not something he wants to be known for"... Not apologising for the act, only that anyone noticed? Or is it selective quoting from Channel 7?
Par for the course for Hawthorne. They endorse violence and even have legends of the club orgasming on TV about it every week.

Begley giving it to the Hawks cheer squad after his goal... brilliant
If you watch the club's vision of this one (check the all goals video on FB), you can see some Hawthorne sad boy in the cheer squad having a sook, then a bunch of our fans telling him where to go.

A fine or something for the pinching, as it has to be discouraged. He absolutely should be getting a week for the stomp though, that's really ordinary.

Can you imagine Hep doing this stuff?

Still, it’s Hawthorne, they’ve worshipped cheap shotters and dirty players for decades.
Most on the Hawkes board seem to be in line with the thinking on here and that he should have been quicker to learn when he was caught pinching earlier. Poor act from the captain etc.

Financial sanctions from pinching are as follows: Pinching 1st offence $1500; 2nd $2500; 3rd $4000
