That’s real tough.

Wonder how the Freo faithful feel about that post. Most didn’t like it at the time in all fairness
Not the first to wish injury. Remember a game-day derby thread a couple of years ago when one of their posters said they hoped NicNat did an ACL.

Classy bunch over there.

I read a few of J Dockers old posts. Seems like a stable guy

Apologies, I am late to the party on the Shep/Banfield incident but wanted to add my comments.

I agree with the intent of the below the legs contact rule but it does lead to arguments like we have seen here.

It's strange how in a much lower contact sport such as soccer there is nothing wrong with a goalkeeper doing what Shep did. More often than not the player on their feet acts to protect himself by jumping/otherwise evading contact/poking at the ball.

I think there is room for modification where the player is sliding in head first as opposed to feet first. Maybe the onus should shift.

Imagine if this was in the goal square in the last few seconds of a final with Freo needing a goal to win. Shep has no other way to get to the ball first other than diving for it. Is he supposed to just let Banfield soccer the goal?

Oh yes, the AFL think players have time to do all sorts of calculations while going for the footy, such as working out how much an opposition player weighs and then applying the exact force required to tackle him but not injure him accidentally. 😂

Finally got around to watching this replay, legitimately shocked that Conca is still on an AFL list. Thought he would've been delisted by now the hack.
I`m watching now, just hit halftime ..

very encouraged by some of the fringe players
Jones gives effort and puts his body on the line
ONeill good user and decision making
Petro looks to be moving well and that goal he got was outrageous good ..
