This is a league of madness.

1. Patrick made a comment on the MRO decisions. Point one was the Toby indiscretions, where there was severe contact to a players face, and eyes. Bont severe contact to the a player, with bone breakage. All simple fines

NOW THE PC POLICE WANT TO FINE AND SUSPEND DANGER FOR SIMPLY HIGHLIGHTING FACTS. THEY WANT TO BAN HIM FROM SPEAKING ABOUT THE MRO OR UMPIRES.

YET THE SAME MORONS HAVE NO ISSUE WITH A CLUB PRESIDENT SHOWING REPLAYS OF THIS EVENT. THE SAME PRESIDENT MADE COMMENTS THAT WERE DISRESPECTFUL TO THE PLAYER.

THE SAME PRESIDENT THAT WAS SEEN KISSING THE AFL CEO ON THE HEAD.

why is this acceptable - it is not acceptable
yet we simply allow our players to be smashed in the media

time for geelong to wake up and support our players

2. Dom Sheed is penalised for a head high tackle on selwood. then proceeds to sling him to the ground, where his head is driven into the ground.
there was no report, fine or 50 m penalty

really in what world was this not a dangerous act, and the head not protected. in what world is this acceptable.
That was 50 every day of the week - we got a pretty tough run from the umps on Friday night, no doubt there - Selwood was in a vulnerable position when Sheed dumped him on his head.
Cam Guthrie was p*ssed at the time, as well he should've been.

yet Menegola gets a 50 agsainst for throwing the ball back directly to the hands of Hickey who cant catch it and it deflects away...

Just abysmal umpiring.

Headlines and commentary summed up:

"Hawkins clearly a week, lucky it wasn't 2 weeks!"
"Get your chequebook: Why is Danger commenting on Hawkins???"

"Greene: This giant villain was near perfect!"
"Greene did it again: but it'a witch-hunt!"
"Umpire shouldn't get involved with hitting hurt players, it's a final for God's Sake!"

You get the impression a lot in the media really don't like Geelong, which is strange because I don't see a reason why there'd be any animosity.

Dangerfield, the president of the AFLPA talking about suspensions is off limits, but these same media types have no issue with Eddie McGuire the Collingwood president talking about anything and everything.

No they'll suspend him so that Collingwood will win and just watch the dismal decisions going against Geelong in the Richmond game. The AFL sucks balls.
There's no way the financial advertising reseller corporation known as the AFL aren't aware that Pies vs Tigers is the most profit producing Grand Final result. If they can make that happen with a few nudges and eye-winks they will make a stupid amount of money compared to a Cats vs GWS setup.
Umpiring will be brutal this week.

In a world where you can jam a players head into a goal post,smash players into fences and eye gouge,but don't pinch or mess up the Do.

that was disgraceful, not sure that umpire actually saw Menegola's actions properly through his botoxed brow, but it could have cost us big time ..
