How in hell is intentionally lashing out with a studded football boot in accordance with the guiding principles for the Laws of the Game in relation to player health and safety?
It has nothing to do with protecting Greene in his attempt to mark the ball and all about his intent to harm opposition players. It is essentially kicking in danger. A violent act by somebody with a history both on and off the field.
When I played footy, that would have seen the offender decked and later cost him 4 weeks courtesy of the tribunal AND being labelled a kicker.
If Greene is allowed to get away with what he is doing it makes a mockery of the rules of our game.
