    When we played the Lions Mitch Robinson laid a big hit on Dunks and Trengove was the only guy who flew the flag. I think a couple of our more fiesty guys were missing unfortunately however other than satiating my desire for revenge against those grubs I doubt it would've altered the result in any way.

    Honestly I think if we had Libba, Daniels, Wallis, Dickson and Trengove yesterday that game would of gone differently. Libba alone is our flag-flyer and would of punched back if given the chance.

    It's just part of the picture, we were outclassed first and foremost

    I wonder if anybody has ever shown the tribunal video evidence to justify retaliation. It would be an interesting defense that the umpires were allowing that crap to happen, so it was left in our own hands.

    I can’t work this one out. We’ve seen hair pulling is a fine, we’ve also seen intentionally throwing a player into a fence is a fine.

    Surely with the cut below the eye, the scratches on the neck AND the fact greene entered the contest late and dived on bont after the ball was dead it is a suspension and not a fine.

    Not reversing the free kick is the travesty in this situation. That umpire should be suspended! Was about 80 cm away from it!

    Garry Lyon on SEN this morning declared:
    The hair pull/headslam combo was worth a $1000 fine;
    He’d looked at the footage 8 times and wouldn’t definitively say it was an eye gouge;
    Unless Marcus came out and said that Greene had his fingers in his eyes then there was no case to answer.

    No surprise there hardly a paragon of virtue. Personally I've taken into account my emotional reaction to the footage and even without that, considering the type of action, the intent and the delicate area of the body he has to get weeks and I pray Marcus breaks the player's "code".

    Let's toss up to see who will do it to Gaddy and see what he thinks then.

    He tows the company line. Of course he can only see what he needs to see. Did Tim call him out? Tim seemed to be confident it was eye gouging

    Quoted on Fox Footy that the Bont had markings under his eye after the incident.

    Irrelevant today I know, but I do pine for times past when Greene would have suffered severe retribution within minutes.
    So it is the Tribunal's job to suspend this sniping prick for 3 weeks, the close up footage was disgusting. Himmelberg should go for a week. The umpire at the Bont/Green incident should not umpire any further finals. Can someone name him ?
