AFL.com.au headline reads, 'All-Australian Cat Facing Nervous Wait After High Hit' as if he's some kind of anxious victim. Prestia facing a nervous wait to see if he shows early signs of CTE.

Seriously how wrong can you capture the spirit of an event in a headline?

Stewart facing suspension for high hit

Geelong star Tom Stewart faces a nervous wait from the Match Review Officer after his high bump knocked out Dion Prestia in the first quarter. The three-time All-Australian bumped Prestia after the Tiger had tapped the ball on with his shoulder making contact to Prestia's head. The three-time premiership hero struggled to get to his feet and was eventually subbed out with a concussion. If it's graded as intentional and high impact it will result in a three-match ban, but if the MRO deems it to be severe impact then Stewart will front the Tribunal.

Jeremy Cameron may also face scrutiny after appearing to grab at the eye region of Marlion Pickett during a wrestle.

Yes but you just know there will be the usual Geelong discount down to 2 weeks with another 1 week discount for an  early plea

Chris Scott on Tom Stewart: "When I spoke to him post-game, he said 'I've just made a horrible error and I feel terrible about it'.

"'I ran past the ball and chose to bump, I didn't mean to but it was terrible execution and I'm going to pay the price for it'."

Needs to be more than that. That stuff ends player’s careers. Remorseful or not, 6 weeks for mine.

That's why it needs to go straight to the tribunal

UGLY ACT DESERVES ‘FIVE TO SIX WEEKS’

Dual premiership Kangaroo David King called for the Cat to cop a lengthy ban.

“We’ve been trying to stamp this out of the game for years. We’ve tiptoed around it,” King told Fox Footy.

“That for me is a five to six-weeker – it’s as simple as that. You’ve got to take a stance.

“We can’t have our players being carried off the ground like that when their sole focus is the footy.”

Before Cats coach Chris Scott addressed his troops at quarter-time, he had a quiet word to Stewart who looked “emotional” at the break, according to King.

Melbourne champion Garry Lyon described it as an “average” yet uncharacteristic act from Stewart, predicting the footy world would never see another incident like that involving the Cats star.

“I would imagine they’ll get right on the front foot, the Geelong footy club, and I reckon that’s a man who’s not going to fight too hard and take whatever punishment comes his way,” Lyon told Fox Footy.

“I don’t reckon we’ll see it from him ever again.”

So according to the idiot of a bloke Scott it was an accident. How the stuff is that an accident???

The stuffin dog should cop 10 weeks but he won’t cause the whole system is corrupt.

Don't mind the discussion Konrad Marshall has started on Twitter.

The idea of an arc type red card sending off system. Only for the really high grade incidents which can be easily graded the top tier which is Intentional, High, Severe impact. Effectively intentional hits which knock out players. Gaff incident hitting Brayshaw comes to mind.

Plus the idea of these severe incidents to have a week of the suspension to be carried over to when you play the opponent again. So meaning that Stewart gets 3 weeks. Misses next 2 but the 3rd must be taken when he plays Richmond next. A bit of justice for the team who has been disadvantaged. Why should Melbourne benefit from no Stewart and we don't plus lose Prestia.

Fair call re: Ryder getting 2 weeks for standing his ground and concussing Will Day.

This has to be 4 weeks minimum.
