Yes, Lions should be filthy. However just because the tribunal stuffed up last week, doesn’t mean they should perpetuate their error by repeating it. They got it right this week, last week no.No. It means they didn’t think a worse incident was worthy of a suspension so how the fu** can they think a lesser one is without coming out and saying they got it wrong.
The Lions because of this should be absolutely filthy at the AFL.
Red eye leaves for Auckland at 11.30 tonight Plugger. You’ve just enough time to buy a one way ticket and join your other whingeing compatriots.If it's any consolation for GWS they probably would've lost on Saturday even with Greene playing, the umpires will be doing their best to get Collingwood across the line to set up the blockbuster GF with Richmond.
They can’t for some it is like anti-semitism; deep seated, irrational and usually the product of a sick mindSo what the MRO, tribunal and now appeals board show is that no rational or sane person can find Toby Greene not guilty. Take off the anti Collingwood goggles and everyone would see this also.
Spot on. That’s the angle that would have done him in. The scratching motion right over Neale’s eye is clear as day for all to see. The fact that Neale is shown literally with his hand over his eye in the immediate aftermath doesn’t help his case either.Spot on. Neale’s fib and GWS’ petulance doesn’t change the footage, which is clear as day for those with a brain.
So what point exactly are you trying to make? If they reasonably believed he could get off, and both they and he know his inclusion would make a big difference, why would he turn around and say 'nah fu** it, go into this huge match without me'?Probably yeah. I’d imagine he was 100% on board
Seriously? What obsession am I apparently meant to have or discussed? I couldn't care less about Greene or GWS. My point was simply about the fact that he never learns. To be reported like 16 times, shows that he crosses the line regularly. Bringing up a persons character, you know the type who somehow escaped jail for attacking someone, where many seem to think he is a great bloke, is a fair argument to bring up. Toby Greene is responsible for his own character, I didn't invent it or am trying to slander.How does that have any relevance?
Christ you Bulldogs fans have an obsession.
Yes, because you don’t have to be a doctor to know that eyes are delicate and you only get two of them.So a punch can have "contact below force required", but contact to the eye region does not?
Lots of Carlton supporters outraged here.Which sums up what a ******* joke they are.
Ignored much more obvious contact to the eye last week. This week charge him for it.
What a pathetic bunch of individuals with no idea.
Yes, because you don’t have to be a doctor to know that eyes are delicate and you only get two of them.
Didn’t your parents ever explain to you how important your sight is?
You can get shoved in the chin 20 times a game by an opponent and walk off without injury, yet direct contact to the eye once from a fingernail could damage your sight for life.
If you lose your sight your life is irreversibly changed forever.
Greene should’ve got 5 weeks last week if the AFL had done the right thing.
Ummmmmm, really? here let me help;Still not sure as to what he's actually being suspended for.
We love the way he plays... and everyone else does too, especially if they play the Pies next week.Hey Leon - and GWS fans - maybe now's your chance to come out and rather than say "we love the way he plays, don't change a thing", perhaps we could hear "hey dipstick, you're a great player, but let's get this scratching and clawing at players' heads s**t out of your game ok?"
Ah, who am I kidding.
Quite clearly you don’t deserve to play in a GF if Toby Greene is the difference between winning and not having a chance...AFL making sure Collingwood through to another GF, another GF they will no doubt lose.
Quite frankly there is little point playing this weekend
For the record, whoever Toby Greene played against this week is immaterial. I was rapt he got off last week, and think he should have been free to play this week (even if was against The Suns, hypothetically speaking)
“If he does this again give him 8 weeks”For the record, whoever Toby Greene played against this week is immaterial. I was rapt he got off last week, and think he should have been free to play this week (even if was against The Suns, hypothetically speaking)
I could very well be wrong in this, but I honestly felt the punishment didn't fit the crime in this instance, and it has nothing to do with Collingwood (As I said, I doubt the Giants would win even if Toby played)
