It's not even just protecting the head. It's non-football incidents.The AFL is either serious about protecting the head, or it isn’t.
If they are then any player intentionally slamming another player’s head into the ground should get multiple weeks. To make it worse, both Cameron and Keays were defenceless at the time and the incidents occurred behind the play.
This is what they need to “make a statement” about. Instead we spend a week dragging an innocent player through the mud for a football accident. The focus is all wrong. Stamp this gutless **** out.
What Williams did (I have no issue with the week - shouldn't have done it). The late hit from Fogarty on Weitering. Toby Greene's gut punch last week. Stewart's similar incident to Williams. Selwood with the punches to the face. "Clumsy" Mumford with the dropping of the knees. It goes on.
Any non-football act should be an automatic week as a starting point.
