Shouldn't of been overturned no I still would of given him 3 weeks.

But it wasn't mean words said something about ******* his underage daughter no? Unless you condone that sort of behaviour it's a weird one to bring up
I don't condone that behaviour, but they are just words. Sticks and stones and all that...

Please cite precedent to suggest that those punishments weren't lenient.
Barry Hall punched Staker in the head in the most similar offence to Gaff, Hall got 7 weeks. Gaff got 9.
Not lenient.

James Frawley pushed J. Cameron into the fence in a similar manner to Gov. He got a fine. Gov got a week.
Not lenient.

Naitanui laid this identical tackle on Parfitt, received a free kick for it

Staker wasn't injured so if it's outcome based and your using that incident to extrapolate to the gaff king hit should of been 12 weeks easily

Rich got 2

Regarding nic mats shocking tackling form he is lucky Amon isn't quadraplegic. Thank God he got the 1 week and has since learnt to tackle properly

Wrong, go Google it
Googled it, first hit


The 2006 premiership Eagle, who remains at the club in a game development role, was adamant he didn’t realise at the time the ink on Headland’s arm was of his six-year-old daughter Madisan.
Sewlood only found out who it was a tattoo of after the event.

As I posted earlier always guaranteed an eagles player will get the lighter sentencing from Christian. Add to that it's finals and it was always going to be a fine.

This will set a precedent for the next grading of a choke slam

You had Ablett (twice), Fyfe and the Bont all escape with fines this year for incidents that should have been suspendable, so put away the tin foil hat and think this only extends to one team.

Merrett gets injured and Naitanui gets a week, Merrett got up and played the rest of the game. That's the long and the short of it.
