Geez, if Soldo did that it would have been 3 weeks going by what he got the 1 week for last time
Fair point ACatMan . . . but, the MRP, and the tribunal for that matter, have been incredibly inconsistent. Soldo raised his arm while running back to the centre because an opposition player deliberately went out of his way to run into Soldo's path, he got a week. Abblett elbowed a couple of players in a far more deliberate manner and did not get suspended. I can't remember the player but I seem to remember a Collingwood player getting rubbed out for a pretty minor incident. Hawkins reached around and whacked someone, back in the bad old days when a lot more players got thumped that would have been at least 2 weeks. There was debate over whether Hawkins would get off, how could there be debate if there was any level of consistency? It was a clear hit to the head off the ball - yes you appeal before a Preliminary Final but the fact that anyone could entertain the idea that he was a chance to get off just shows how inconsistent they are.The week should and did stand, what about all the posters who said Shocking being an ex cat, would ensure he got off...... just asking!
It's a load of crap, witch hunt, victimised....Usually don't mind Jimmy Bartel, but he's become another salty (ex) Geelong flog on this issue.
Claims Greene is being "victimised" by the AFL. Give me a ****** break
Match review officer Michael Christian has categorically refuted suggestions that Giants star Toby Greene has been made to pay for his bad disciplinary record.www.theage.com.au
And the hundreds of other players aren’t undiagnosed psychopaths either...It's a load of crap, witch hunt, victimised....
This isn't 10-15 instances of the same thing happening on a weekend and them only picking out Greene, he is the only player doing it, because the hundreds of other players in the AFL know not to make contact with a players face.
