Agree, Frick.

I've slowed down the TV slow mo further to get a good look at it (not quite frame by frame but slow enough to see it very clearly.

Hits away the ball and his arm/elbow slightly drops, then raises it again into Vlas. Two actions.

My main beef now is that it wasn't even looked at. AFL - "nothing to see here".
It was as deliberate as you like.

Said it on the night stand by it now.

An errant unflexed forearm wont knock you out like that, but Sniperfield braces then raises the elbow in to Tiggas face.

Deliberate act for mine.

I also like how the Tigers have a player unconscious on the ground but nigh on all the talk and concern is for Gary and his shoulder.

You would have thought, but it was a VFL practice game, so probably why.

“Bracing for contact” seems to be Gonemissingafield’s go to defence!

Moggies got it on a special fudge through for the Clench of course.
AFL players carrying a suspension are usually allowed to play pre season practice matches ( they can also get suspended for incidents during practice matches. But that is usually still within the senior level of footy and the official " season " hasn't already started.

Seems ridiculous that players are permitted to drop to a lesser league to get some match practice while serving a suspension that has been incurred during an already active season.

We have CCJ playing in practice matches
Firstly, Cujo's suspension is a carry over from last year, players have been permitted to still play pre season practice matches for ages.

Secondly, Dangerclench had already started this official playing season when he got suspended. Should not then have been permitted to drop down to a lower grade of competition and join their later pre season games to enable him to maintain match practice and fitness while suspended after offending in the main comp.

Zac Williams played for the Blues last week in a praccy match apparently its allowed.
Williams hadn't already started his AFL season. Got suspended from playing an AFL game during his pre season practice match n then played another pre season practice match.
Clench got suspended during an official AFl game so his " season " was already started. Shouldn't then be allowed to drop back to a lower grade comp to maintain his match touch n fitness.
It's a technicality but the fudge shouldn't have been allowed.
