Did anyone else notice this?
7.40 to go first quarter..
Young does his ankle badly in a tackle, clearly injured - gets up very slow, hands on hips, stretches out and then big bad Tim Membrey hits him from the side completely unexpected and nearly knocks him over. Ball is not in play.
What happened to protecting an injured player?
No ramification from any Freo team mates.
No mention in the media - further proof that no media watch Freo Sat arvo games.
Imagine if Toby Green did it - straight to the tribunal and at least 4 weeks for interfering with an injured player..
Remember that Freo

I mentioned that in another post, Demo, St Kilda have a record of laying complaints to the AFL about this sort of thing happening to Rewoldt & co, why have the media chosen to ignore it. The rush to change the subject by the commentators at the time it happened was almost indecent. The vision showed clearly, Membrey going at Young from behind and contact was far from incidental. Because Young kept trying to contest the game, until he could get off the ground, maybe the CH7 sycophants thought "no tears here , lets move on".

Pity the Scott brothers were not in the commentary box, they might have reminded Healy & co of the media witch hunt to get them vilified and suspended in the Rewoldt incident.

If Hayden's name were Rowell the media would have been all over this and Membrey would have got weeks for bringing the game into disrepute.
