Would be much the same I imagine, but in any case it's a s**t comparison because a) Martin's a star and b) he doesn't do dirty s**t like Greene every week.
It’s not a shit comparison at all.

Both are stars.

One has almost everyone creaming themselves that he’s missing because he’s a grub.

If it was Dusty copping a suspension in a prelim for something so hit and miss there would be so much outrage.

Richmond fans would be going berserk.

You missed out the bit where he came in late to the tackle, and grabbed directly at Neale’s face. And that he’d done this and more the week before.

Details mate. Details.
He was late in a tackle? Oh, definitely worth a week for being late in a tackle. And the ferociousness of the hit on the face, which... didnt even draw blood or bruise?

So a punch can have "contact below force required", but contact to the eye region does not?

Look at all these arsepained Carlton supporters, goddamn.

Nothing better to do in September?
Well excuse us if we like old skool footy the way it was meant to be played, not this watered down, gender neutral type of non contact crap we have these days.

When I was growing up, we used to celebrate players going the biff and massive brawls and melees, now these days those actions would be regarded as examples of toxic masculinity.

Anyhow he was never going to get off anyway, under Vlad he would have, but Gil is one of those Overly Sensitive New Age guys who gets manicures and stuff, the type of clown who bans fans at games for calling Umpires flogs.

So now its a 1 week ban if your hand goes near someone's eyes, regardless of whether you actually gouge or not.

What a fu** ing joke the AFL is.
Unless it happened last week.

Inconsistent and idiotic system.

Based on these same principles, Greene should have been suspended last week.

AFL trying to cover up their idiocy last week (which cost the Lions a prelim).

Clawing at someone's face isn't 'old school footy'. Nothing nostalgic about that unless you're a f*cking weirdo.

The evidence last week was much more blatant and they didn’t even look at him for eye contact.

Week later he’s been done for a lesser incident.

Makes so much sense.
He should’ve got 3+ last week. He’s lucky he’s only getting one this week. We’ve seen how the NRL punishes eye gougers.

You’re pretty much saying everyone should be able to eye gouge from now on because they f’ed up last week.

Different charges yeah? Did you read that bit.

Tribunal let him off on serious misconduct... shoulda been charged with unnecessary cont to the eye region the first time.

Serious misconduct, referred straight to the Tribunal means AFL says let him off.

Chrisso knows now

Until a player from your team gets eye gouged from Greene.

Collingwood haters... gunna hate.

There was no "idiocy" though.

They intentionally gave Greene one of the all time biggest "Get out of Gaol Free" cards.

Then he showed that he didn't learn his lesson by doing something similarly brazen and cowardly.

As Leigh Matthews said, why the hell is anyone surprised at this outcome?

Collingwood or Richmond player would have got off, we all know the AFL is angling for this GF match, standard case of Vic bias.
Bullshit, he was allowed to play last week to help GWS, he didn’t learn his lesson, he thought he could do what he liked, no one to blame but himself. You can’t blame Collingwood bias for this decision. You should be mad at Toby.
