From Geelong he’ll still be able to get his tassie inbred photos quota
Jesus I hate AFL matches in Tassie. Corportote greed from the league. If they want a team in Tassie then shut up about it and put one in Tassie full time. Half measures are so stupid.

2 weeks for Duman for a love tap yet you have campaigners dropping others with full on whacks to the gut and getting nothing. Once again the Freo rule strikes again at the MRP. If only his name was Buddy or Dangerfield.

i thought he was just one of those players that got booed for being good. happens to buddy too. and the huge cheer when the mistakes happen. only happens to the best. the media overdrive about it has been odd. nothing malicious, always thought with a guy like ablett is was pretty light hearted.

The media want to turn it into a story. The club in the gun to get whacked this week is norf which isn’t newsworthy enough so they’re trying to create a headline

Ablett has been boo’d by just about every team we’ve played since returning to Geelong, it’s nothing new, but the media will go with the ‘he was boo’d because of the Izzy like’.

Freo are challenging the suspension.

I guess because of the Geelong/Hawk rivalry and hes a gun.
Yes I think this nails it. Such a strange quirk of sport whereby a great of the game is acknowledged with booing. I personally think it’s a bit petty, and am unsure what these links to Folau are (did Ablett agree with him or something?)

Ablett (and Matt Kennedy) liked his tweet.
