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)..
Hahahahahahaha this is post of the year, deserves 100 reactionsthey are absolute serious , Tom knocked
Saad to the ground ground , from behind , and repeatedly raked his fingers over his eyes
Saad never returned to the ground
and is having surgery today
of course its worth 6 weeks
And if people want any more proof of the game being cooked, here it is.I'm sorry, where was I wrong about the high contact not being paid?

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.
What’s evident clear is without umpire assistance you guys are nowhere against us. You needed those 8 50’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 we’re even now.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.
No, no, no, we train for it. And also we are elite finger wigglers (as evidenced by Broad). There’s no depths we won’t go to to win a game of footy.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.

The elite finger waggling is actually twinkling , learnt from prep school when singingNo, no, no, we train for it. And also we are elite finger wigglers (as evidenced by Broad). There’s no depths we won’t go to to win a game of footy.
Elmer has probably never played football and has no idea.
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.
Cool story.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.
