Footage of Brisbane Lions captain Dayne Zorko appearing to spit at North Melbourne defender Jasper Pittard is being looked at by match review officer Michael Christian.

Vision emerged on Twitter on Monday from Saturday night's Gabba thriller between the Lions and the Kangaroos, appearing to show Zorko spitting at Pittard during the third quarter.



If true, where does this rank in dirty acts?

Right up there as far as dirty acts are concerned. Wiping blood on an opponent, spitting, stomping, hitting a bloke from behind (Conca style) and pinching are in my view the dirtiest things you can do on a football field.

Digging his dirty little claws in Simpkins scar from where he broke his leg a few years ago.

Same quarter he was given SIX frees.
Simpkin is one of the biggest grubs in the league. Kicked Zorko in the face only just prior (hence the blood) - though Zorko’s action was totally uncalled for.

Are you sure that Jy "No, not Jed Anderson the other guy. #12!" Simpkin is one of the biggest grubs in the league, or are you perhaps a little upset that Zorko is being called out for being a gross little loser?

I think most would not be able to pick 21 year old Simpkin from a lineup, let alone identify him as one of the league's dirtiest. I don't even think he has a reputation of being dirty at all.

Correct. I like the Lions but between the cheating scandals over the last 24 months, the rubbish with Touk Miller and now the pinching and potentially spitting, Zorko is painting himself as quite the campaigner.

It’s not his fault. He has never been coached to use his best attributes - only to play the typical faux-thug act like the usual North “best” 22.

Zorko shouldn’t reduce himself to that level either.

Yeah Simpkin is a dirty player. Thankfully this was dismissed as total nonsense. Also the AFL admitting the Brown free was also incorrect so we can now move on from the hysteria

Faux tough from a lion's supporter is hilarious. Half your midfield spends all game flopping and diving for free kicks throwing their head around like a crash test dummie

Please, if that hurts him, maybe he should change sports. Simpkin is your typical dirty sniper... s**t player so will try to be tough and backfired and now just looks like a complete sook because someone touched his leg.
You'd feel the same if their positions were reversed?

Face facts, some weird bloke is grabbing your leg, do you cop it or tell him to shove off?

Looks like dirty mullet sweat dripping down to me.
The (1 second) video has it as gravity defying mullet sweat coming from Zorkos mouth if that's the case
Oh no he grabbed my leg, I should really try and kick him cause it hurts.
Are you saying if I came up to you at your work, held your ankle down and started pinching your calf you wouldn't be at all irritated?

I'm struggling with this one, exactly how dense are you? Simpkin didn't kick him because it hurts, he kicked him because it's a ******* stupid thing to do.
