I was pondering on Aqualina, he's full of potential but he seems to be slightly off the pace. I'm hoping that'll improve with minutes and time. If he can put a little bit more pace into his game I think it's make a huge difference.

Early season he was terrible but is getting better. As you know I'd always start Sasha but Tommy is improving

No lover of the guy but that’s harsh, especially as Faz saw the game out with no apparent ill effects
Not harsh at all. Perfect amount. It was one of the nastiest challenges I’ve seen for quite awhile. Have you seen the photo of it? Both feet, studs showing, left the ground and landing on both of fazz’s calves…. I get what you’re saying that yeah he didn’t break his legs etc. but that honestly doesn’t matter.
isaias has always been a scumbag nasty c**t that fools the media and Adelaide fans with his childish voice and fake smile.

My take on it was it was clumsy and poorly timed not deliberate and premeditated and Isais seemed genuinely apologetic to Faz. He is a spiky player for sure but isn’t a total dirtbag, like some others. Three games would have been sufficient in my opinion and if one of our players got five weeks, we would be spewing.

Remember, Penha only got two weeks for a deliberate elbow to the back of Steele’s head.

I'm with you that it was not pre-meditated. Is 5 now the benchmark if you catch someone high with studs up? Topor-Stanley only got 3 for his studs-up foul on Kuol - his challenge was late and was intentionally trying to foul. One thing the FA are consistent on is there inconsistency

Haven’t seen the press release yet but I suspect/have heard it may be a 5 match suspension with 2 of those suspended, so 3 for now which I think is fair - considering this is his second red of the season already.
I was just about to mention it’s not his first red this season and that probably played a part.

I dont know if I agree with that from the outset but he is getting grubbier as he ages and has to cover for age slowing his game. Not a good look.

He has form. This season he has had 2 yellows plus a game where he got another 2 and was sent off, then this straight red. Got another yellow in FFA cup. Last season he got 7 yellows including 1 second yellow.

lolly got 2 weeks for a near leg break on DDS .who hasn't played since .

Not sure I agree with that, DDS's leg bent with the very strong contact by Lolley. I think DDS has suffered a knee injury as a result due to his leg bending so much and probably stretched ligaments.
It was somewhat unlucky with weird angles, reckless and ugly. I didn’t comment on force which there was obviously a bit because he was kicking the ball. DDS was coming in to make the tackle after a heavy touch but never got to the ball. Caught all of the follow through though.

It’s subjective but although it has a consequence (injury) I have a hard time comparing it to diving in with 2 feet or kicking Garang in the stomach off the ball. So for me about 2 weeks seems like a reasonable outcome for a player with a good record. Wouldn’t have argued if it were 3 but I don’t think it’s worthy of a month off.
