Surprised nobody has given an opinion on The Little Wierdo once again going out of his way to jump up and throw a stray elbow at someone changing direction and him getting away with it.

No surprises that the AFL finds excuses to let Grablett and Pretty Boy Fyfe off but a poor young nobody from North who did nothing wrong gets suspended
Entirely predictable
Entirely wrong
Christian probably thought he’d challenge it and get off again after last weeks ridiculous result. Why waste everyone’s time...

Just to maintain the fury let's not forget Jack Bowes got a week for this

The 20-year-old midfielder was running back deep in the Blues’ forward line, but appeared to take his eyes off the ball at the last minute and bump Weitering as he competed for a mark with Suns defender Rory Thompson.
Weitering received a free kick for front-on contact, but Bowes was not reported by the umpires.

I remembered that as I remember thinking it was not a suspension at the time so looked it up last week after the Ablett incident.

Its in the video highlights along the scroll bar there.

Didn't post it as I thought it was different.

Bowes basically had jumped, was in the air and then body crashed into Weitering hitting him in the head.

I don't think it was a suspension - but don't think you can really compare the incidents.

Agree completely. That should have been a week. The intent was to block the player but poor technique is not an excuse. His elbow contacted the head well after the ball had left the area, should be automatic week off.

If he does any damage it would be 4 weeks at least. Luck plays too much of a role in these decisions. Gaz was lucky he did no damage, but the rule should be about stamping that out of the game and the best way to do that is to suspend players for a week. A great incentive to 'improve technique'.

If it had been a lesser known player at a northern club, would have probably got a week. (Lets be honest, Will Brodie would have got a week for sure).

PS. I am settling more and more comfortably into a 4 northern clubs against the rest when it comes to competition issues.

The biased fixture, biased scheduling, the NGA academies, the disparity in off-field opportunities, the incessant whinging from large Melbourne clubs on how 'unfair' it is for them (sometimes Collingwood has to travel to Marvel, and once in a blue moon has to fly!!).

Always want to beat GWS, Swans and Lions on the field, but in everything else it is us against them.

Totally agree Bods. The Bald Headed Jesus is treated like God! No pun intended. I also have a conspiracy theory that if they'd gone for him, then Fyfe would also have had to go - and the AFL can't have that! The NM player was indeed hard done by - just a solid bump no more and came in from the side. Ten years ago it would have been applauded for the effort and tackle etc.
