  1. Nyhuis is a unskilled WAFL player and should not be playing in the big league and after his sling tackle hopefully he won’t be able to fill a hole at Freo for the rest of the year

    1. Sling tackle? You clearly haven’t watched it properly from the front and in slow-mo. Nyhuis only ever was pulling him down – Gray tries to stand up and break the tackle which caused the “hop and slam” motion. If Gray dropped to his knees it would have been a perfect tackle.

      Will get a couple of weeks for and that’s fine – unlucky string of circumstances led to the concussion and it’s what the AFL is trying to get rid of. Shame though, because he was winning the duel over Gray up until that point too – best game he’s played as a small defender for us.

      1. Totally agreed Hutta, I was saying a very similar comment after the game….arms weren’t even pinned!

        Gray definitely added to the outcome, Nyhuis had no idea the ball had spilt loose either…..I’m surprised it been referred straight to the peanuts at the tribunal

        Suspension via Ports medical report & by the parasites of the media!

        1. It did seem his arms where clearly pinned , he had his hand around his right arm. He was swung around and then driven into the ground….I didn’t seem gray had much choice in the matter completely unnecessary IMO.
          But of course everyone will have a differing opinion…I will go watch the incident again…. I still though don’t believe he is a afl level player at all.

    1. Google it, clearly both arms aren’t pinned

      Feel for Ribbie’s health & my SC team, but IMO he seriously contributed to the unfortunate outcome with the hardest sidelines in the competition!

      To hear the pathetic media outlets going on about it will unfortunately contribute to the tribunal outcome
