    This video review just show that Christian has no idea on what he is doing. My main gripe is Ben Brown and his non strike on Buntine. I would have though a fine for rough conduct would have been the call.
    Just listen to Christian excuse for the let off is sending the wrong message to the world of AFL who goes to spoil the ball with their elbow?
    I would have let him off if he hit him with his fist that would seem more plausible.

    I just wonder if one of our guys did the same thing what the penalty would have been and not someone who is in the running for the Coleman.

    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.

    Stratton - two week penalty. Very light in my opinion. The stomping charge was worth at least 2

    This is just utter bull shit. Really getting sick of the AFL - it is being spoilt by morons at HQ

    Tim English, Western Bulldogs has been charged with Striking Jack Crisp, Collingwood, during the second quarter of the Round 14 match between the Western Bulldogs and Collingwood, played at Marvel Stadium on Sunday June 23.

    In summary he can accept a $2000 sanction with an early plea.


    Based on the available evidence, the incident was assessed as Careless Conduct with Low Impact and High Contact. The incident was classified as a $3000 sanction as a first offence. The player can accept a $2000 sanction with an early plea.
    This is just a free kick nothing more nothing less.

    Umpire didn't even deem it 50 worthy at the time.

    On the plus side Port have lost Amon and Howard to suspension.

    Couldn’t agree more. Pay a 50 metre penalty.

    The AFLPA really needs to take a stand on these fines by Christian and Hocking for what really is just a reasonable attempt by a player to make a contest.

    If the player doesn’t contest it with some level of desperation he will get called out for it in his Monday review with his line coach.

    I honestly think they have lost the plot at AFL House.

    To be fair they have only ever had a vague connection to reality. It comes from running the Biggest Show in Town with no real competition from any other sport or entertainment. They think they are geniuses when in actual fact they are very, very lucky. The AFL has always just been a Boy's Club.
