Love AFL, not interested in any other sports really. Have attended a dozen or so grand finals in my life, none of which I have had to pay to get in. (Work that out yourself). Collingwood tragic and member.

It was a bump that went high though Chris. I Can’t see it a blatant act like Gaff for example

The AFL should send off players for violent actions that take a player out

So a send off for taking legs out too if serious injury occurs?

How can you judge intent that quickly? The tribunal next week will likely spend hours judging Toms intent. I can’t judge that vision even now and say his intent was to smack Dions head?

Oracle let’s say Stewart slid in under Dions legs and he did an acl? Does Tom get sent off for that too?

Chris, it’s illegal to take a players legs out by sliding under them and that can cause severe injury. If you’re talking about send off for a mis hit bump then players should get sent off for taking out legs. Where’s it stop? AFL footy has way more grey areas IMO than any other sport and it’s in the grey that the send off rule will fail or worse, become farcical.

Read my post to Rowdy above G man.

Tom Stewart in major trouble for 'clear-cut' high bump that KOed Prestia

Rowdy you’ve got a lot of bodies around packs and players bump each other a lot off the ball. Not saying it wasn’t reckless and needs to serve some time, just not seeing it as a sniper like some.

Agreed. Play should have stopped. Does Brad Scott talk to them about common sense?

I think in the light of the Jordan De Goey gutter media persecution and subsequent faux outrage pile on by anyone with a keyboard, we have to be a bit better than some of the stuff I’ve read just in here and what some are calling Tom Stewart. I’m seeing “dog act” a lot, “utter disgusting…should get 6 weeks”, etc. As the De Goey theatre wanes for the cl1ckb@it voracious usual culprits, (Fox, Cornes, Robbo, Herald Sun, etc) is Tom Stewart now just the next pantomime “villain”? It looks to me like he made a decision to bump in a millisecond and got poor Prestia too high. Reckless yes and I hope Prestia is ok. Did he see an opportunity to take out one of the Tigers prime movers and take it? That’s a stretch.
What headline generates the most ad revenue?
“Reckless bump from sorry Stewart sent to tribunal”
Or
“A dog act. Sniper Stewart needs 6 weeks”?
As for sending off in play, do you remember Darcy Moore being tagged by the non officiating umpire 70 metres away for daring to rush a point and gifting the opposition a goal?
Whether on field or not do we want this kind of rushed decision making applied to on field incidents with a ticking clock?

Not at all I’m saying look at the footage and what he is trying to do. Just like the De Goey pile on , folks like you love to jump on to some faux outrage. He went for a bump, made a bad judgment in that millisecond but people calling it a dog act don’t understand footy IMO

Just have to find your way to a preliminary and anything is possible. Knockout game for a GF. Look at Pies in 2018 and GWS on a wet night in 2019.

AFL Saturday Study: Cats and Tigers brilliant, but brutal Blues are Melbourne's biggest threat for the flag

As sickening as it was seeing Prestia like that I don’t see it was meant to be a head hit in any way. Stewart’s not the type. 3 weeks as he’s not a sniper

Remember when they had Tony Lockett ready to sign and at the last minute pulled the plug due to the emergence of a young Sav Rocca?

AFL NEWS: 'I'm not a perfect person'- De Goey apologises publicly for Bali incident, Lions' flag hopes read 'last rites'

Couldn’t watch the game but always check my man Treloar’s stats. 9 kicks 18 handballs are funny stats for him. Did he have a role or play more inside?

4 players is a lot so I’m going with some brothers? Maybe the Richardsons or Shaws in the mix?

Definitely possible we get a Carlton 5th versus Collingwood or Richmond 8th

Thanks for your comments Mr Right. Taken on board by the way

Jordan De Goey’s punishment cannot be blamed on the media, nor can Collingwood be accused of being too soft

I liked he mentioned the women in his life and that he was very much a work in progress. Macca of course will come in here in a cynical tone and say his speech was completely scripted by Collingwood but I like to think his words were genuine

Good on you Jordan. Best off getting that apology done now, back at the club next Monday . Interesting Fly McCrae’s first comment was “I want to get him back and throw my arms around him”…A note to Macca, those without sin cast the first stone.

I wrote an article on Adam Treloar in the midst of his forced exit from Collingwood that hit 22,000 or some such but it just dropped in good timing. Still sad when l think of Adam being largely booted out in the botched return of prodigal son Dayne Beams in a tilt for the 2019 flag.

Good on you Jordan. None of us are perfect, we are all a work in progress…except Macca in The Roar who is of course, already complete…and perfect…and wonderful…and faultless…and handsome apparently…except for being a Carlton supporter of course, he is what I aspire to be. I’ll reach his level one day…maybe when I’m 90.
