So the only logical solution is to remove the dangerous tackle rule. Treat it the same as a collision.There is no distinction between one and two arms being pinned in the dangerous tackle rule.
Yes Duncan had one arm free when he was tackled but it was the arm on the opposite side of the body that hit the ground. He had no way of protecting his head in that position resulting in him getting concussed.
And we can probably bring back the bump too.
Gil will be long gone by the time the AFL is paying out tens of millions or hundreds of millions in lawsuits so he wont care.
