Boomer's Angel of Mercy

Post by Chambo Off To Work We Go on Tue Sep 16, 2014 6:55 pm

Reckon Boomer Harvey owes Joel Selwood a bottle of Grange after his "Angel of Mercy" efforts in getting Harvey off the bump charge.

The bloke who next week may feel like the world's biggest sinner is Nat Fyfe if he misses a Brownlow for pretty much the same thing.

This whole bump cr@p has got to be fixed. Blokes missing games for minor knocks to the head just ain't footy.

Stupid decision.

Boomer is a dumb football player with a long record of doing stupid stuff like this off the ball. Should've kept the week.

There is one thing that has never changed in football.

There are rules for well-known players, there are different rules for others.

Ballet footy? How can you possibly say that.

Some of the collisions the athletes of today encounter would have put players into varying degrees of unconciousness in eras gone by.

The "game" itself is as physically demanding as it has ever been, collisions, physical clashes are faster and harder than ever.

What is true is the "bump", the "MRP" and the "Laws of the game" committee are all broken and all need fixing.

The whole bump issue has descended into farce. Ever since Viney got off and Goodes and Franklin seem to now have immunity, the situation has become ludicrous.
They need to set out clearly the rules and apply them consistently regardless of who does the hitting and what match it is.

Nathan Fyfe copped two games for the same soft collision, pathetic by the AFL to go to these extremes, but its finals time and the rules seem to be relaxed this time of the year.

Rules for some and rules for others.

Mr Booney,
you have misunderstood what i mean, the way the game is officiated both on & off the field makes the game ballet` footy, they had to bring in ''trial by video'' & it was brought quite correctly to clean out thugs, now players get suspended by video for every little indiscretion you could think of, if the Jackovich brothers were playing now Allan would get 4 weeks for a deliberate head high contact when he kissed his brother Glen, as i said it isn't the players fault, hell it isn't even the umpires fault, it is head office & its departments that changes rules, laws etc & they seem to change some of these for no real reason other than justifying their own importance, some changes have been good, yet the majority is knee-jerk reactions to isolated incidents in matches
