Unfortunately good record doesn’t even come into play. Unless he goes to the tribunal, which won’t happen.
The gradings have nothing 1 week down to fine. It’s either two down to one or a fine outright.
It will probably be hard to argue it wasn’t intentional (but we can hope as greater chance he gets off), so best case is low impact to the body = $1000 fine with early plea.
Anything else and he is out. Most jumper punches/tummy taps that have gone have been high or medium impact. But this is the AFL tribunal, consistently inconsistent and no logic.
It’ll come down to any report from Fark carlton. You reckon they will do us any favours?!!!
