Where was the penalty, umpire? In the Hawks vs. Tigers match, the authorities find the disagreement rules wrong again
Where was the penalty, umpire? Officials find the rules of disagreement wrong again as the Hawks suffered a major injury against Richmond as the Tigers took a big lead in the final quarter.
- The two hackers threw up their arms in anger at the verdict but were not punished
- Jordan de Goi comes after facing a controversial 50 against the Bulldogs
- Hawthorne veteran Jack Gunston was pulled over due to injury, and the Tigers returned home late
It was only eight minutes into Hawthorne’s fight with Richmond that the two Hawks players raised their hands in disgust at the decision to get their ugly head back due to another umpire disagreement.
But fate abandoned coach Sam Mitchell’s men just before quarter-time when veteran forward Jack Gunston could have a serious knee injury.
Hawks Sam Frost and Will Day both raised their hands near the boundary line, disagreeing with the umpire’s decision, but were not given a 50-meter penalty despite a clear violation of the rules.

Jack Gunston (right) suffered a serious head injury just before quarter time. He returned shortly afterwards, but after a while he had to fight for good
The penalty was the same as Jordan de Goi’s penalty in Collingwood’s defeat to the Western Bulldogs on Friday night, as he struggled to reduce his frustration.
De Goey threw his hands out in frustration, but then immediately pulled them back because he felt the action was now classified as disagreement.
The incident drew strong criticism from fans and pundits, with Richmond legend Matthew Richardson expressing his frustration.
‘Come out of it. That’s not 50 meters, ‘he said in a commentary for Seven.
‘Then you have to pay them all. It’s just ridiculous.
‘Sometimes I feel for them. This is an emotional game. They are not robots. ‘
The Hawks fans’ hearts sank when Gunston smiled in pain and grabbed his right leg after competing for the mark before the end of his first term.
Dustin Martin came from the Hawks for some close attention but they couldn’t stop him from kicking some important goals, including a full belt from an almost impossible angle.
Justin Kositz’s Dillon Grimes is bad. Hawke kicked two goals in quick succession as his team exploded in the second half, but their goal quickly dried up.
He was removed immediately, but returned briefly in the second quarter when he could not run independently.
The 218-game veteran had one goal and five dismissals before the end of the day and was replaced by Connor McDonald.
Hawthorne excelled in his second term, scoring four consecutive goals against Luke Brewest and Jacob Kositzke, and one to Chad Wingard.
However, Richmond bounced back with his own four-goal strike, leading from half-time 9.5 (59) to 8.5 (53) with a superb effort from Dustin Martin.
They were eliminated from Hawthorne in the third term, kicking four goals in one of the Hawks to take a 19-point lead in the final quarter.
Martin electrified the MCG crowd with four minutes left in the term, grabbing the ball from the field in heavy traffic and booting through the left-footed snap posts from the right of the boundary line to the right of the boundary line.
He added a third goal early in the final quarter to give Richmond a 94-68 lead.
