Predictably Clarko is too pathetic to condemn the behaviour. A fish rots from the head.
Robbo has s*at himself, ranting about it at start of the show now placid and too scared to ask Clarko if he was aware of pinching in Lions game and what did he do to stop it. He just mumbles “gee that was good of Ben to speak up”.

What a soft**** Robbo.

Slobbo and Gerard too gutless to call him on it too. Let him off so easily
Yep, they should have asked him point blank "irrespective of the tribunal, do you approve of pinching as a tactic on the football field? Do you approve of your captain pinching opponents repeatedly?"

Let him off way too easy. Mind you, knowing Clarkson he would have stormed off set and put his fist through a wall.

Clarkson weak as piss. If you cannot control or directed Stratton for gutless behaviour then I guess Clarko has lost the players and is getting a taxi to Carlton. fook that will be funny.

agree with above. It's pretty clear Clarkson either has no issue with this grubby play or in fact even gave instructions to do it

But at the end he hinted some sort of issue with Stratton and that the tribunal will go easy on him once he reveals all

I would prefer coaches not comment on cases before the tribunal. Can't stand when the Scott brothers constantly defend their players act before the case occurs

Like everyone who is involved, they should comment after the case has been heard

Would have preferred if Stratton and the club said nothing until Tuesday night as well

Scott brothers ?

Mate “Stinchy” your AFL Captain should get weeks 😉

What embarrassment to all clubs and the code.

Both of them love to put their case out before the MRO or tribunal sits

Stratton deserves to be suspended. Just would prefer if all parties said nothing until it is all decided

What is Clarko going to do? Burn his Captain to placate Robbo?

You think Stratton is the only player to pinch? Hawks the only club with players that niggle or cross the line?

He's not going to point out who else does it across the league and he's not going to hang his Captain on 360, the CEO has already made the club statement on the issue everything else will be in house unless a club sanction post Tribunal happens

How about saying pinching and stomping are unacceptable? No matter who does it? Not that hard unless you don't believe it.

The AFL is set to request two separate suspensions for Ben Stratton when the Hawthorn skipper fronts the tribunal on charges of multiple counts of pinching and a stomping charge.

With “Stimpichy” as the club Captain 👍

Good work 👍
Just opened up a photo on Instagram of our Captain supporting the Geelong Dragons, a team with intellectual disabilities... But check out how Selwood is accused on this site compared to Stratton, a stomper and pincher, and their super coach, the one who condones it or instructs it....

Yeah good work, how is your Stinchy Captain and his Stinchy coach in their bunker going ?

Or is your real Captain with any real heart or honour playing in the VFL ?
