    Really??

    That incident was just in play and the contact was simply because Kelly was quicker to the ball. There was absolutely no reason to look at it.

    Based on other hits and reports - yes. The head is supposed to be protected.

    Well the incident I saw was both players going for the ball and no intention of either player to tackle or bump. It is just a football incident that warrants no further inspection or action.

    Are you talking about the incident in the centre of the ground?

    I wished Richmond took it to court. Rules for some and different rules for others.
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    Dale Thomas referred direct to the tribunal after calling a boundary umpire a 'GrubGrubGrubGrubing cheat'.

    Thoughts?

    Many will think this is overkill, but the 'c' word is the WORST thing you can accuse any umpire of.

    Rugby Union referee Wayne Barnes sent off a player in the European Cup final for it and was widely praised in the rugby world. The player was the England captain at the time.
    Massive missed opportunity by the tribunal to only issue a fine, irrespective of size.

    Someone seems to have played with the auto correct on the forum, because I tried to use the F-word and it auto corrected to GrubGrubGrubGrub

    Yes. Without relooking at it. I believe it was last quarter.

    I think the previous impact was worse but he's become reckless and eventually he has to pay a price

    That’s also my view. Under the points system he would’ve missed already.

    I've said it a few times but the AFL has a tendency to let Brownlow medal winners slide on reports. If there is a way of getting him off they won't care if it creates speculation of their integrity

    He took a swipe at face height and then jabbed, has to be intentional.

    But, Ablett said it was just him being a little bit clumsy and that it was only a free kick. Given he has three pockets in his overalls we should probably just believe him, because he wouldn't lie openly, right?

    Ablett might be in a bit of trouble but not as much as his old man
