I say AAA and was also surprised even though I think Barrett was trying to bait them towards a different answer.

What doesn't hold well is Michael C interviewed on the AFL app continually pushed the point that he referred it to the tribunal for the seriousness of the whole "series" of events during this scuffle.

What I read from that is that if it was JUST the hair pull or JUST the face grab, then a fine would be likely. But add them all together and it's not a good look for the game

He will get weeks in my opinion.

I love Toby, but This is not what I want my 3 year old daughter seeing to be fair

Thats a propaganda piece against the Giants at best!!! Are you on a competitor stakeholders payroll??

Serious question

Do we have a main board mod ? Things are getting Nasty over there

Sadly I think if Greene gets off he may not make it through the finals. Players will be out to get him

Have you got something against Toby Greene with your over the top comments??

I know what it is, you have laid the Giants haven't you???

so Merret pulls hair and gets a fine
toby pulls hair and gets time

consistency?

they'll find him guilty of being Toby Greene.
One could strongly argue that watching a player slung into a fence directly in front of children is every bit as horrific in terms of “look of the game”. He deserves a financial sanction and no more.

Don’t forget the chokehold he was put in first. Grab a player round the throat and slam him into the fence = fine for Nic Nat.

How many weeks you reckon Mummy would have got?

AFL's legal counsel Jeff Gleeson QC submits for a "significant fine" of between $5000 to $7500, given his remorse and that he has made no attempt to defend his action. Gleeson says it would be "one of the more significant fines" handed out by the AFL Tribunal, but says it "falls short of warranting a suspension sanction" due to Greene's guilty plea.

I’ve looked at a number of sources and this is total crap

He deserves a fine at most
Turns out to be correct $7500 fine.
tbh I thought Bont should have been suspended for the Haynes hit and I thought Tobys play in that segment was nothing short of a dog act

Do I really want to go and slog through the outrage on the other boards?

Part of me really does

Part of me really couldn’t be bothered

All I can say is “totally suck on that all you winging w***nkers”

I do find it interesting/hilarious that the AFL Council (ie: the prosecution) didn’t call for a suspension. That suspension was essentially never on the table.

As I said - suck on that.
