Gee remember the uproar when Ryan Crowley was accused by Harvey about pinching!!!It raised the hackles of all and sundry,Melbourne media more so.Crowley was convicted on Harveys say so, no evidence.
Now we have the captain of the Hawks, Ben Stratton, not only being accused of pinching, but proof from their last two games.Proof recorded by the TV cameras and bruises to Orazio Fantasias upper left arm.The first incident was shown on cameras with an umpire standing and laughing at what was going on.I wonder was the umpire actually spoken to by the umpires advisor.
Will some thing come of it with all the evidence!!! I think it is a dog act.Why would grown men actually want to pinch someone!!
I am totally bemused by the situation.I actually read where some people say it has been going on for many many years.I know I played in a different era, but never ever did I encounters it, maybe because I wasn't that good , but I never saw or heard of it.
Going to be interesting now to see the AFLs response.
