Yes, Collingwood is definitely protected. We certainly didn’t have to vigorously appeal an MRO decision earlier in the year to suspend one of our players for daring to hold his ground when a Tigers player ran in to him. Cox probably would have received the death penalty for what Greene did, even without the eye gouging.
Keep telling yourself that.

Funny I see a fair few comments lamenting the fact Libba Jr. wasn't there to inflict some pain on Saturday. Mind you at least his dad got a pretty hefty suspension for what he did.
cos he punched and eye gouged
Greene didn't.
Bit of rough housing in a final.

NN shoved Merrett into a fence - that's normally a week
I like this no suspensions in finals rule Mr Christian has introduced

Why you'll break his Larynx?


Lol hilarious the spoke and outright bulls**t in this thread.

Fans of clubs such as bulldogs, pies and certain others calling the Giants protected is s laugh.

And that Eagles fan calling us plastic is even funnier.
What's hilarious is Giant's fans infatuation with Hayne's larynx.
Anyone would think Bont gave him a tracheotomy on the boundary line....

It's amusing because we were called soft and wimps in 2016.

We bring the rough stuff and doggies fans have a whinge.

It was a head slam nothing more and deserved a fine.

We haven't posted anywhere near as much as doggies fans about a simple face massage.

Anyone would thing Greene had removed Bonts eye balls.

The AFL backed themselves into a corner by not suspending Merrett (and Naitanui to a lesser extent) just a couple of days ago
how is NN the lesser extent?
yes, Merrett provoked him. Grabbing hair is not worse than shoving a guy into a fence.
Both were fine being fines.

And rightly so, because it was INCIDENTAL...

I don't wish any harm to poor Hayne. Poor guy suffers enough waking up in a cold sweat every night crying 'why did I let Macrae out the back!'.

LOL

A facial in response to a back slam and facial on Kelly isn't assault. Worthy of a fine yes but that's all.

Don't let your personal feelings of not liking the bloke cloud your judgement on the rules.
Really? So we see players all the time slamming others players faces into the ground with impunity?

Don’t delude yourself you have been well protected

We saw one on Thursday night and it was a fine.

Don't let your dislike of the man cloud your knowledge of the rules.

Protected? Seen the free kick counts?

He’s never had a crack at someone that was expecting it or had their hands up. He always goes about hitting blokes from behind or when they’re not looking or expecting it. Same way he assaulted the security guard. Just unbelievably weak.
Like Bont. Off the ball and high on Haynes and a back slam and facial to Kelly that started the whole incident.

But he is a legend yeah?
