Sorry yeti, I wasn't trying to start a debate around the characterisation of it, but 'commenced legal action' is typically understood to mean the commencement of proceedings. That hasn't happened in this case, and in any event I don't think would be a good use of the court's time.

I did find the apology interesting, considering in the absence of the crazed-running most people don't think he did anything wrong. It's a good gesture that might see a resolution to this.

Dockermus;
Let's try to remember that it began with an over-exited, possibly aggressive, supporter choosing to loudly call out a follicly challenged umpire as a "bald headed flog".
You have hit the nail on the head, the trouble started when the Carlton fan was "over-exited" by security staff.

Had he just been spoken to, and asked to respect the umpy, and those around him, in the second half none of this idiocy would have occurred.

As for the AFL, they try to control the crowd off the field the same way they control the game on the field, by over reacting in a huge way to every little incident that occurs, not taking a breath and considering what might happen as a result of their reactions.

I am waiting for the behavioural guys to walk in and tell the ground announcers and half time entertainment team to tone it down a bit. That would do everyone a favour.

It wasn't typo-spotting DM, I was looking for a cheap laugh at your expense, however I will take the plaudits.

I'll put my hand up - for sure he's my escaped goat.

Talking about flogs though, I just went on Sportsbet to see what the odds were on Margetts awarding a free kick to his mates inside 25m of their attacking goal within the first 10 minutes of a game: $1.02.
