This definitely looks intentional. The umpire did nothing. This type of acts should be reviewed and players sent off (like NRL) to the sin bin, or sent of for the rest of the match.
Fining a player 12-14K teaches them nothing. Tom Lynch is known for his dog acts like this. IMO for this act which could have left saad blinded in one eye, he should not be able to play for rest of season. AFL need to step up and make an example out of him for this act. What is this telling our kids, its OK to gauge the eyes of your opposition, BS!!!
The umpires give a free kick for shoulder taps, and this clearly if reviewed by video can be seen as a deliberate act. I am going to write to the AFL re this incident and see what response I get.

Also, the goal that was reviewed that went the wrong way for Carlton, should have been reviewed from different angles. The angle should to us last night, does not give enough evidence that it was touched. Such a crucial point in the match and it should have been reviewed again and again, and if not definitive which it wasn't it should have been a goal. Tigers are bad sportman's and cheats IMO....and the umpires look like they favour the tigers anyway. (so many wrong decisions last night against Carlton and in favour of Tigers)..

Did you know the Nathan Broad has โ€˜magical spirit fingersโ€™ that he can wiggle back and forth in unison as a ball passes his handโ€ฆ. no, it was nothing to do with the ball hitting his thumb to cause his fingers to wobbleโ€ฆ he decided it would be a really cool thing in the heat of a high pressure game of footy to wiggle his fingers when trying to spoil the ball, as thatโ€™s a totally natural thing to think about doing.

Nathan โ€˜spirit fingersโ€™ Broad they call him. If you look closely for the rest of the season you will see him wiggle his fingers just as the ball passes his hand - heโ€™s really talented and magical ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ.

And let me know what response you get from the AFL in relation to Lynchโ€™s eye gauge. But just a tip โ€ฆ donโ€™t stand by the letter box for too long โ€ฆ

Lmfao what the *

Should've been a free kick for incidental/accidental head high contact, that's it. Quite clearly an accident. Absolutely ridiculous to suggest he did it deliberately.

Hahahahahahaha this is post of the year, deserves 100 reactions

I can hear the comedic timing of your delivery based on how you've written this too. Incredible.

I'm sorry, where was I wrong about the high contact not being paid?
And if people want any more proof of the game being cooked, here it is.

Just like the suits at the AFL, mods high on authority on forums want all contact taken out of the game. An innocuous finger brushes another player and it should be a free kick? Some AFL fans don't even know what game is anymore.

No wonder the AFL has turned into the Australian Freekick League.

An innocuous finger brushes ....

I'm fine with most contact, but this contact was in the eye and took the player out of the play. Would you really have felt ripped off if that was paid? Do you get upset when someone hits someone in the head going for a spoil and gives away a free?

Seems to me you're the one full of hyperbole.

Should have been a free kick for high contact though. Took Saad out of the play where he was in the best position to gather the ball. Instead Tigers got an easy goal because of it.
Whatโ€™s evident clear is without umpire assistance you guys are nowhere against us. You needed those 8 50โ€™s in the first game to get anywhere near the tiges. You guys got a goal when Broad got taken out with front on contact and no free kick. So i guess weโ€™re even now.

No, no, no, we train for it. And also we are elite finger wigglers (as evidenced by Broad). Thereโ€™s no depths we wonโ€™t go to to win a game of footy.

The elite finger waggling is actually twinkling , learnt from prep school when singing



and twinkling your fingers

Elmer has probably never played football and has no idea.

Actually I played junior/teenage footy for 5 years as a kid before switching to basketball.

I'll admit (once again) i overreacted, Saad is one of my favourite players at Carlton and Lynch has built up a reputation of being a sniper who has done some fairly distasteful acts on field over the years, so I was probably wrong in hindsight but I felt at the time I had a legitimate grievance.

Amazing thread. I thought lynch must've gouged him during the melee when I saw the thread. Nope, he's talking about the accidental poke in the eye :$

Probably best to get off the internet for a bit buddy.

I don't believe it was as accidentally as you or most others think, but meh, regardless,enjoy your victory against a Carlton VFL team.

We were rubbish for most of the game last night, a true premiership contender like Freo or Brisbane or Geelong would have buried us by 10 goals on that performance by us.

Just don't get carried away with the win, you won't beat the teams I mentioned if you play like that.
