The AFL’s walking headline, Toby Greene, has found himself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons once more – facing the tribunal tonight to contest a one-match ban.
Cited for “Making Unreasonable or Unnecessary Contact to the Eye Region” against Lachie Neale in Greater Western Sydney’s thrilling three-point semi-final win over Brisbane, it’s the second trip to the tribunal in as many weeks for the controversial Giant.
But, does he actually have a case to answer? Is it time the AFL rubbed him out, or have they picked the wrong battle?
We were joined on the Game of Codes podcast by Roar AFL expert Adrian Polykandrites to discuss the case against him and whether or not he’ll miss the preliminary final against Collingwood.
Listen to the debate:
Greene drew the ire of football fans around the country following his incredibly rough treatment of Marcus Bontempelli in the elimination final.
The 25-year-old was referred directly to the tribunal over that much-publicised incident but, sensationally, escaped the ordeal with just a fine.
