It was as deliberate as you like.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".
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.
