Greene's reasoning below

"The whole time I thought I was a good chance to take the mark ... at the last moment I realised he was going to touch the ball before me, then I braced for impact," he said.

"If I go in with an open chest, I open myself up to impact. Hence turning my body to protect myself, knowing he was going to get there before me.

"If I go for the mark with my hands out and he tucks in because he's going to take the mark, I'm highly exposed and vulnerable."

His plea fell on deaf ears however, with the tribunal sticking with the MRO decision and suspending Greene for one match. "

What is a viable alternative for Toby to do in this situation, I can only see two; open himself up to being injured or pull out of the contest well before contact on the basis of a probability he may hurt the oncoming player.

The AFL have put themselves in a position that they cant explain and risk the inherent game style of AFL

First time I've seen the vision.
Disgraceful he's suspended.

Basically because someone ran back with the flight into him.

I think they should allow the players to look at the other player before hand so they can adjust their run and also put their hands out in front to minimize impact without giving away a free kick.

Jeromy Cameron's head knock has been ticked off by the AFL, despite the fact that Jeromy is now suffering delayed concussion & is already ruled out of next week's game.  There will be no fines or charges layed because the Geelong Doctor attended Cameron & assessed him on the field during play & found no suggestion of concussion.  That's one heck of a doctor, even though he turned out to be totally wrong! 

So everything is hunky dory & well with the world ... now ...
 
Its a good thing that we have such cast iron rules around things such as concussion, other clubs have broken those rules & copped massive fines, but Geelong are perfect & obviously a better club than all the rest, so no action will be taken. 

So sit back & enjoy the footy, especially if you barrack for the Cats ...     ::)

Cameron was clearly stunned lying on the ground for a few seconds after the head knock before he got up. He was also allowed to contest the next stoppage before the doc got to him.

Came within one point of our highest ever score under Halfstep against a side he took 8 seasons to beat....big difference when you're given the keys to a brand new Lamborghini  as opposed to having to rebuild a written off SLR from scratch with no access to genuine parts.... :shh
