I personally think at the very least, it should’ve been referred to the Tribunal. The mere fact that Christian didn’t even refer it to the Tribunal just reinforces that the process is broken, is a farce and is even corrupt. We have had reason this season to question Christian’s ability to make the hard calls. (Think Lynch’s “hit” on Hurley. His inability to make the call on his own was laughable).
And I know if we trusted the AFL’s processes we wouldn’t even think it possible, but I do ask the question “does dangerflop get a immunity card because he is AFLPA president?”
This is surely a reasonable question to ask given the AFLs romance with certain untouchable players. I honestly believe if it had been Parfitt, or Miers, or Atkins and not the big name player they would’ve been referred straight to the Tribunal and would’ve been suspended for 2-4 weeks. Just one of the inequities the AFL expect us to just accept.

Mudguts 0/4/2/1 total 7.

For me, the showpony isn't a great kick. Not even a good kick. It's reflected in his DE over the years.
Even without the stats on paper, it's easy to see this during most games.

So the real question to me is: What is someone with that quality of kicking doing in the forward line anyway?
Our poorer kicks in the forward line like Castagna bring the speed, tackling and coverage.
Most times, the showpony isnt a good kick. And at times, Hawkins can be a real hack kick too.

If you want to understand the difference between Dusty and Dangerfield then look at Dusty's last goal where he stole the ball from Stanley and ran around Dangerfield who ineffectually clutched at Dusty's guernsey and was spun off the ground with a swivel of Dusty's hips allowing for Dusty's wonder goal. An Oz kick kid would have done better than Stagerfield

My take. He has his arm outstretched for the ball. All fine up to there. Arm then started to drop. He saw Vlastuin coming, arm again raised with elbow out. At best, its reckless. I will give him the benefit of the doubt but reckless, high impact to the head is still a suspension. That it was let go with no case to answer is disgraceful
Correct weight.

I'm interested in how the people who see it as 'deliberate, dog act, blatant, lifted his arm etc' explain the complete lack of any remonstration from any Richmond player, despite the game being completely stopped for over 7 minutes and the incident being replayed multiple times?

Doesn't seem very Richmond man to watch one of your team mates be intentionally knocked unconscious and just stroll off into the huddle for a chat? The photo shows Nathan Broad standing next to Dangerfield right afterwards, and he certainly isn't backward in coming forward to fly the flag for his team mates.

To me the logical explanation is they all felt it was a normal footy collision with a really unfortunate outcome.
Yep. Was almost at the stage of hoicking a can through the t.v. when it happened n still pissed off that it did. But there's not a player bothered to remonstrate n raise a fuss so have to take it as one of those split second moments that went horribly wrong.

Any news if he reached out to nick to check if he is alright? Guess we will find out eventually.

The more I look at Dangerfield's hit on Tigger the more certain I am that he didn't have move his arm from an extended position to one where his forearm hits Tigger on the jaw.
If he is not guilty, then Plugger should've been found not guilty too.

I know. It’s ridiculous.
Look how serious I am, no really, I am really serious. Do Not Smile.
Pelican.
He was doing it during their previous finals wins too. Trying to prove something. Now he’s got egg all over that game face. Flog!

Guess he thought the power ranger thing worked for his old team when they lost to them in the prelim. Mustn’t have watched the GF.

While I am 50/50 on whether it is reportable, I can’t stop thinking about the AFL “appealing” against Bachar when he got 2 weeks and turning it into 4. When they want to be they are remorseless.

I actually come at that from the opposite position. I don't want the players getting anywhere near those situations, it's a medical emergency, no room for non-essentials.

I was impressed with the umpire barking at players to move away and not touch Simpson when he was ko'ed, only for Brian Taylor to start insisting they should be trying to remove his mouthguard.


Speaking of which, after Simpson was taken off, why wasn't there a ball up the same as when Vlossy went down.
The Cats player was playing on after the incident happened, there was no free kick or mark paid so surely there should have been a restart of the game.
But for some unknown reason the Cats player was allowed to have his kick when play resumed.
