NO IFS, NwO HEAD- BUTTS
The head-butting incident by Corey Parker in the first week of the finals should’ve been looked at by the match review committee and, if we’re being fair dinkum about it, he should’ve been served a suspension. In light of the fact that a player was recently suspended for “touching” a referee “inappropriately” when there was no harm intended or malice implied, then a head-butt served to an opposition player in anger or frustration should attract some form of discipline.
Parker ought to know better. If Michael Ennis or Issac Luke had been in Parker’s shoes I doubt there would be any other discussion other than “it needs to be stamped out” and “it’s a dog act”. The judiciary must send a clear message that behaviour like that truly does bring the game into disrepute. Sorry, Corey, but that’s not cool!
