Dermott Brereton should be sacked for a start! This was clearly seen as De Boer being a complete dick and the MRO did the right thing for a change. The Umpire was close by, no free kick paid, no remonstrations from teammates. I actually think the 2k fine is a croc!

So what did the first action do to de Boer?
Dusty’s 1 action hit Kennedy first on the shoulder and was deemed low impact ...
Dangerfield 2 actions with both having the potential to cause serious injury.
The AFL is a joke.

And no acting?

It would have been despicable if Danger got rubbed out for what he did, and for those imbeciles saying it was no different to Dusty, well.....
Kennedy admitted to being a nuisance and putting it on... Dusty still hot 1 week.

Nobody saw it that way though.

Good luck to Dangerfield ...

Bad luck to us. The afl is a joke.
Bit like how Ed Curnow was rubbed out for touching an Umpires shirt when everyone else copped a fine and the AFL appealed that when he was cleared to get him rubbed out for the same actions of many others.

One thing the AFL has never been is consistent and why do people expect them to be now? Tigers really cannot complain though and the Cotchin hit on Shiel that was let go wothout penalty that concussed him and allowed him to play in a GF was just as laughable. If that was a home and away game or a no name player it was weeks.

AFL are a joke on so many levels and bordering on corrupt which is plain to see.

It will never change.

It Is utter nonsense to compare an elbow to the back if the head of unsuspecting player, to Dangerfield throwing his arms blindly behind him though.

I agree and i am more pointing out the chook lotto effect that is the AFL tribunal.

It is adjudicated much like games are by the Umps, no name players don't get 50/50 frees, HTB is blatantly ignored for lower teams , line ball calls never favor the cellar dwellers , superstar players get the world from the Umps in a highly ranked team etc etc.

Dusty did deserve the week and there is a clear difference between the 2 hits but you cannot discredit the fact that if that was a 2nd game no name player for a lowly ranked team doing exactly what Danger did he was getting rubbed out.

AFL will never change.

But the new rule states you should take into account the potential to cause serious injury.... how can someone be assured he does not cause serious injury blindly throwing his arms behind him???? Dangerfields action was a striking action. That’s what Houli blindly did and connected and caused serious injury...and he deserved 4 weeks.
