She should have been given the extra week just for wasting everyone’s time. It’s sheer luck that Hosking wasn’t concussed.Anyone see how ridiculous Carltons argument was to try and get Prespakis off. It was probably one of the most uncomfortable tackles I've seen watching AFL, landing Hosking on her head and he legs up in the air then landing the other side. A lot of rotation on her neck.
"Prespakis argued Hosking drove her shoulder into the Blue's midriff, winding her, in an attempt to break the tackle and it was that momentum which caused Hosking to land the way she did."
So the 1st defence is, well it was her fault, she winded me so I dropped her on her head.
"AFL counsel Jeff Gleeson and Prespakis disagreed as to whether Hosking's arms were pinned, with Gleeson suggesting the left bicep of Hosking was held, while Prespakis said that Hosking's forearms were free."
I didn't pin her arms, but I still dropped her on her head and flipped her over.
I can't believe they had the audacity to actually go to the tribunal. I thought she was lucky to get just 1 week, the risk of dropping someone on their neck and all of their weight going through their neck is massive.
