MRO - 2019 Same-same, but different


#181

which is exactly what I just said.


#182

That’s not what you are arguing at all.

You are suggesting that he SHOULD get off.


#183

correct. I think the match day report should’ve been thrown out because I don’t think there was enough force in to deserve being sighted in the 1st place. As will be argued by the Cats at the tribunal this evening and they’ll make their decision.


#184

It’s obvious that’s what they will argue and my faith in the MRO is zero but he clearly takes him high and with force.

Ridiculous to say otherwise.

Would you be ok with seeing that action regularly?


#185

Thats bs about the amount of force. It was enough to push his neck so far to one side, that he looked like Zaphod Beeblebrox with the middle head removed.


#186

I really don’t think he hit him that hard at all. that is all. I’m not suggesting it didn’t happen, I just don’t think it was anything more than a free kick and probably a 50m penalty.


#187

I’m not as convinced as you are.

It clearly puts Shiel down.


#188

It was nothing. There was no force. Shiel should have been pinged for staging. Right?

#189

for what ~5secs? didn’t have to go off the ground, was able to take his kick, played out the game no trouble. no blood rule etc.


#190

That’s a pretty stupid question given at no stage have I said it shouldn’t have been a free kick…


#191

So you would be comfortable seeing that regularly on the football field?


#192

it’s against the rules, so no. but I don’t think contact of that force is a reportable offence.


#193

Should be interesting. Cousins got a week last week for a similar offence.

Would be difficult to overturn.

I think it needs to be stamped out personally or otherwise we will continue to see it every week.


#194

It’s only luck that it didn’t get him with more force. It needs to not happen at all regardless of force, and that’s what the rule is designed and written the way it is to do. He goes. Full stop. (Or should)


#195

Loved the way Bellchambers handled Dahlhaus. :slightly_smiling_face:


#196

Belly is always first one in, no questions asked.


#197

Not for an AFL post boy it isn’t.


#198

Drew Jones @DrewJonesFOX

Gary Ablett Jnr up in the witness box. Gary says he was surprised when he was reported. Says he wanted to tackle Shiel initially, but once Shiel handballed he wanted to minimise the contact @FOXSportsNews @FOXFOOTY #afltribunal

BY JUMPING IN THE AIR AND AIMING FOR HIS HEAD?!

you’re guilty as sin, god-boy. Take the L.


#199

Worst attempted tackle ever


#200

I always tackle with an elbow and forearm.
