LIAM PICKEN NOT SUSPENDED
I seriously cant fatham how Liam Picken was not out for this incident. At no stage did he attempt a tackle, smother the ball or bump Dwyer at a resonable height. His only intention was to run through Dwyer. If this happened in the AFL it would get 6-8 weeks. Simple. How can we take the VFL tribunaral seriously???? No wonder Nick Sautner was so upset he got rubbed out....You can pretty much do anything in this comp without getting into trouble. Peter Street not even cited for an elbow to the head when the ball is a long way from the area and also throwing puches..Hahaha maybe we need to bring back Ken Gannon or the send off rule!!

Barry Hall would have got off for that left hook he threw if he was playing in the VFL.

He was in play and was going too fast to tackle, if he had've gotten there a second earlier it would've been a fair bump

The only way you can get suspended in the VFL is to shoot your opponent in the knee cap. The tribunal is a joke. No wonder Schwab is going to thrown them all out

We should put a vflfooty.com team together and put in a joint application to become the VFL's tribunal panel.

It was crude, but he didn't just straight out punch him in the face. Had Picken not put him to ground, he'd have been dragged for not doing so. If I was Picken and in that situation, I'd have done the same thing. What else was he meant to do? Duck and bump? His feet never left the ground.
