    I saw that incident replayed on the news tonight. If Greene was a rugby player he'd be looking at 16 weeks. Those at the AFL who are responsible for this travesty should be ashamed of themselves.
    And as for Leon Cameron, who on the news tonight, said he was "PROUD of the way Greene played the game" he is nothing but a disgrace. But of course, now that "playing on the edge" has been endorsed as a "small beer" matter by the AFL it can hardly call on Cameron to recant or qualify his comments.
    The AFL is a standing joke. Tanking, Adam Goodes, Supplements Scandal, Drugs Policy - a litany of disasters.

    Re: Tip Rat Green Straight to Tribunal

    How could any one be PROUD of Toby Greene?

    I mean seriously. The league has really opened a can of worms here.

    The message from the club and coach should be, we have talked to Toby about his behaviour........blah blah..etc......needs to tone down.blah.

    But they strut around PROUD of his behaviour???

    Shows what a meaningless punishment a fine is.

    I really have lost ALL respect for Leon Cameron over this too.

    Until the profitability of a the league is removed from the CEOís bonus structure we will never have impartiality in AFL.

    In other words never.

    Great leadership from the Giants in continuing to enable and dismiss the reality of Greene's violence

    Screenshotted if helpful, and bravo for the contribution.



    Bravo too, for the Tragician's sincere musings on the matter.

    I'll add this contrary view ... find me an example in the entire history of football where a captain and/or coach did *not* back their man to the hilt in such instances. They're doing what clubs do by default, and their exculpations are entirely predictable.

    It's the AFEL that should be dragged before an impartial tribunal for their persistent enabling of this behaviour.

    That said their self-invested ham-fistery on any issue of note deserves much the same.

    Of course a coach and team-mates are not going to slate you in public, but 'proud of', 'he gets it right nine times out of 10' and other drivel are over the top. You could still say we love his passion and he's a great team-mate, but also show some respect to the intelligence of the public by acknowledging he goes too far.

    I do find myself trying to remember how we felt when Libba was at his most .. remonstrative

    I know I have felt embarrassed by some players' actions at times. I'd like to think the behaviour on Saturday would have been one of those times, had it been my team dealing out the thuggery

    100% agree. It is the AFL who have to answer to this punishment - not greene or Cameron .

    Libba gave as good as he got, was the theme. He also got rubbed out and shamed in the media, for clawing at someone's face.

    I can't recall Libba ever getting a media campaign to reduce a penalty or justify why he should not be heavily punished.

    He was always fair game in the media unlike Thug Toby.
