So if Brown didn't hit his head, but as a result of the bump Saad has whiplash or concussion from head hitting the ground, is Brown considered responsible?

They mentioned earlier this year that they do take that in to consideration now. But it was late so it’s probably moot.

That was a careless and dangerous bump. Talk is about did his head hit the shoulder or did the head hit the ground. Irrelevant. The bump caused the hit. That was as dangerous as a punch but I doubt will get the same press, revulsion, or weeks.

And not even a free kick. StK gets the free kick and a goal. That was poor all around.

Protect the head?.... an empty commitment.

Nor should it because it is nowhere near as bad because it was a hit within the game, just late (by only a few metres if you believe the 5m rule) for which a penalty should apply since he clearly could have avoided making contact.  

Looked shoulder to shoulder and then whiplash and into the ground.  I doubt detailed vision will show head contact with shoulder but we shall see doubtless.

Anyone think the Saints might be a sneaky chance to completely shut the door on the Bombers' finals aspirations??

Anyone??

They were  shut anyway. And rightly so.

All week hysteria about the Gaff round arm.. players come out like Higgins (who punched Vince in the guts if I recall) and say enough is enough. 

The AFLPA says this should be a landmark for the players to not do this any longer...

First qtr of the very next match... the players act like idiots with the rough stuff...

Devils advocate but wasnt Browns incident the same intent or worse? Brown ran meters out of his way to take a player out? If he’d knocked him out and knocked his teeth out?

Intentional, medium to high impact, not high.   Weeks but not purgatory.

The inevitable post... how the [censored] did we lose to St Kilda? What a rabble they are. Their skills and decision making are appalling.

We played a terrible MCG team that game as well. Frost wasn't in the side, Garlett, Hunt, Hannan, all those pacey players the Tigers have shown you need to play the MCG.

We'd smash them by 10 goals if we played again tomorrow. Goodwin learned a lot about what you need to do to win at the G from that game.

Wtf is Sam McClure using as a hair do? Looks like someone’s taken a dump 💩 on his head and then moulded it into something like Demi Moore attempted in Ghost.

It’s shameful that we lost to the Saints. Talk about coughing up four points. They are an appalling side.

Despite those muppets talking up Parish, gee he's soft. Went back with one hand before. Okay on the outside, but soft on the inside if the heat's on.

A 15 metre uncontested mark. Yeah Bruce, one of the best I’ve ever seen.

And then picking Oliver instead. Has to almost go down as the biggest bullet dodge in history.

How was Parish's attempted tackle again there? Butter Parish.
