    Just saw the vision of the stomp on the AFL site. What a childish, bully-boy action. I agree with both your points Mel.

    I have now seen vision of the stomp. That should be a multiple week offence. Vision has now been put up of the Hawks v Lions game where Stratton was repeatedly hitting Charlie Cameron and now also seen pinching Cameron leaving bruises similar to what he gave Fantasia. Is Clarko happy for Stratton to continue to represent the club as captain after this? I am disgusted that these niggling offences have crept into the game. I hope the tribunal send a real message that this behaviour is totally unacceptable and that Stratton gets a very long suspension.

    This stuff has been going on for a very long time. David Rhys-Jones made a career out of it.

    Rhys-Jones made 42 tribunal appearances and all up was suspended for 22 games. At least we exported him to Carlton. Anything less than four games for Stratton would mean he has gotten off very lightly.

    Rhys Jones was a gun and a great team player. He was a bit out of control with us but he was very young. Pity he went to the Blues where he matured and won a Norm Smith.

    But he was always a dirty bugger.

    Strange that he never played for Hawthorn, then?

    Hawk sent straight to Tribunal for pinching and stomping - AFL.com.au
    The kind of stuff you'd expect from the Hawks, they've made an art of this type of low life niggling, remember Sam Mitchell deliberately corking players. Poo and piss scum, hope we flog them. They've got serious list problems too - beautiful!

    I remember Burgoyne deliberately corking Lewis Jetta in the 2012 GF, effectively ending much of his influence until that last wonderful minute of play. It happened right in front of us, and can just be picked up on the Channel 7 footage. The commentators keep saying Jetta “has cramp”; no, he had an almighty corky in his right quad, and played the game out with it. So yes, well-known for their “unsociable football”, the Hawks. Stratton should get at least a couple of weeks.
