  1. So an intentional elbow to the jaw is one week and bump in the play is 3 weeks? And no, I am not a Port supporter.


  2. They better be careful with the open hand forced contact to the stomach / ribs area then…….

    ……. that is of course unless their medical liabilities insurance only covers above the shoulders (even if it could have been accidental…….)


  3. How did Maynard not get his sling tackle even looked at? Collingwood absolutely kissed on the you know what by the AFL this week……
