I'm not surprised anymore! They seem to favour the Victorian teams over the interstate teams.
I think Walker is unlucky! 1 match is reasonable. It was all 1 motion. Also he tried to avoid slamming his head.

To be honest from what I saw it didnt look like he was trying to avoid contact with the head. If he wasnt silly enough to drop him on his head to begin with he wouldnt be in this situation. The umpire had already called holding the ball before Walker dropped him on his head.

It's hard to see, but he did try to avoid slamming his head, and sort of turns him around, but he couldn't in time. I agree he should have not dropped him like that. Funny since last year he was criticized for not being aggressive enough and this year he is too aggressive. Even last week against NM he was lucky to not get reported after pushing a North player into the goal post which could have resulted in a serious injury.

Re: ~~Official AFL 2012 Discussion Thread ~~ ft. GWS

no walker deserved all 3 purely for stupidity. you just cannot pick up and dump a player like that. all he had to do was bring him to ground normally, he didnt need to pick up stevie like that. walker plays like a big kid that doesn't know his own strength. he wasnt trying to injure morris or anything, that's just a ridiculous proposition. it was just dumb.

morris coming out and saying he's okay with it is understandable. he dished out a few of these while playing for westies.

Well I think 3 is a bit harsh. He didn't injure him or anything so that's why he should have been given a lighter suspension.

........

Anyone going to watch the EJ Whitten legends match tonight?
I can't wait!
It's great watching former greats play and also we get a few comedy bits which is always good.

Re: ~~Official AFL 2012 Discussion Thread ~~ ft. GWS

with his godawful record it was going to be 3. you cant just go by whether or not someone got injured as to say whether or not someone should be suspended for a period time time. otherwise players would only be suspended if another player gets injured, and then the entire system goes to shit. while the mrp has it's flaws, it's a good system despite it's inconsistencies. there's nothing wrong with aggressive tackles, but what walker did was very, very dangerous. he's lucky that's morris is a hard bastard, if he tackled angus monfries he'd have been crying for weeks.

Good points. His record is pretty bad.
Shame he will miss the West Coast game.
The Port and GWS games we wouldn't struggle without him, but for the west coast game, it's a big blow to our forward line. I just hope Lynch or Kerridge get a chance. I would prefer Lynch to get the nod over Kerridge as Tom has a lot of potential.
At least Walker will be back for our match against Geelong. Even though we beat them by 50 points a few weeks ago, I feel that they are a hard side to beat at home.

Re: ~~Official AFL 2012 Discussion Thread ~~ ft. GWS

it'll be one of lynch, mckernan or jenkins. likely mckernan after kicking 5 goals for south and getting close to 30 hitouts too. so much untapped potential there, who just seems to be so lazy. can easily tear a game apart, but just doesnt seem to want to.
