Should the actions of Hawkins be questioned here? He was pushed players into packs a number of times during the game. . In fact he has been doing it all season with little scrutiny from the umpires/AFL. Was only a matter of time before someone got hurt.
Imagine if that was Lynch doing it. The media would be demanding that he be rubbed out for 2021, just like poor Ivan will be.

Feel very sorry for Ivan & wish him a speedy & complete recovery. Great competitor & still much development to come. Injury hurdle which I’m sure he’ll overcome. Holds his own against the beast opposition ruckmen, so look forward to his return in late 2021 hopefully.

They keep showing the Soldo incident but don't have the courage to illustrate how Hawkins pushes Balta in the back which means he stumbles into Ivan.
Why is it sometimes the media go through footage with a fine tooth comb to uncover a travesty but when one is right under their nose they ignore it?

Really bad luck for the big fella and the team. He has been great in tandem with Nank setting the tone for the rest of the group. Dusty will really miss his tap work.

If it was Lynch they would show it.

Dalhaus actually shoves Ivy from the opposite direction too. It's like they practice this shite down at Geelong.:mad:

Yep the silence is deafening.

Agenda driven flogs they are.

To me it looked like an innocuous knock after the Hawkins shove but shocked at the amount of damage occurred to Ivan. I just hope his powers of recovery are good and he will come back even better than before

I missed that but will check again. Mind you I doubt not even Geelong or their players would stoop so low as to deliberately potentially curtail a players career like that - I hope.
What the incident does show is the umpires have a bias for and against certain teams

Innocuous knock?

The 105 kg balta was shoved full force who's knee then collided into the side of Soldo's knee which then buckled.

The thing is that sort of thing happens in footy all the time and I doubt the shove was done to cause serious injury, just to disrupt the play. It was unfortunate Noah's knee was forced into Ivan's knee at exactly the wrong spot. The end result I agree is a disaster for Ivan and our team. As much as I would like to see Hawkins sanctioned, I doubt it will happen

I can't stand Hawkins, he spits the dummy when they are losing and when he is getting beaten.
He kneed Vlastuin in the back a few years ago, and I can't remember who it was, but he tried to do the same thing to another Richmond player. Vlastuin was lucky he didn't get badly hurt, can lose a kidney from a dog act like that.

Take him another 12 months of playing to get the knee right. Massive blow
