Geelong midfielder Paddy Dangerfield is set to come under MRO scrutiny for whacking GWS’ Matt de Boer in the side’s loss on the weekend.
The hit was enough to stun de Boer, before a secondary arm swing from Dangerfield that seems to collect him in the head.
Garry Lyon feels the incident isn’t worthy of a suspension.
“So he’s thrown his arm back without looking, then he sort of got him in the head, but he was bent over. Is it Dangerfield’s obligation to know where his head is?” Lyon told SEN Breakfast.
“Give him a $1,500 fine and move on. That’d be it.”
Tim Watson believes it’ll be heavily debated no matter which way MRO Michael Christian goes.
“He may get a fine, I don’t know if he’ll miss a game,” he said.
“He’s got a case to answer, it’s going to be a very interesting deliberation for Michael Christian.”
