Nah the Worpel tackle is clearly more "slingy" than the other
By "slingy" you mean Worpel pulls him down to the ground as he falls backwards?

And the Swans tackle on Worpel is more "speary" where Worpel is driven in to the ground head first.

In the Pies Demons game yesterday a Pies player slung a Demons player over the boundary line and the Demons player didnt even have the ball.

No penalty.

Joke that he could get a week for rough conduct for a tackle like that - while the incident where he is tackled himself doesn’t even get looked at.....but in the face of it being deemed “rough conduct” while Mackay walks free after cannoning into someone and busting their jaw, the system is utterly broken.

Its pretty obvious that no matter what the reason, any time someone is even moderately hurt there will be a suspension.

But if there is no injury its a literal roll of the dice as to whether the MRO will bother.

a week for a good tackle is just WRONG, reward the good tackles the players lay, not report the players, Mackay got none and that was more deliberate (not saying he should of got anything) there is something wrong with the Afl these days, they dont let you go in hard for the ball or contest or really do anything
