Goodness me, you baboons above have proved my point yourselves.
Sammy, you're so right. The passion Drew Petrie showed when he was on the ground incapacitated. Oh man, so passionate. How good!
1) Look at the still image and the video, and you can clearly see where Lake's hands are -- on and around Petrie's neck
2) See quote from Petrie post-game: "was nearly asleep". I don't see anyone here claiming to be a doctor or knowing anything about concussions. All we can go on is a quote from the very man who was actually experiencing it
3) If you are using the eye-gouging as an excuse for Lake losing his shit, look at why Petrie was forced into that act. Lake had already lost his shit and Petrie was just trying to get the bloke off him. As anon said, self-defence should be expected when someone has you pinned down with their arm around your neck
As anon said earlier, let's take this to the street and let's suppose a cop was watching that unfold right in front of him/her. What Lake did was felony assault (let's just say Aggravated assault), and you can get up to two years in prison for that in Victoria. And that's for Aggravated assault. Imagine if there weren't blokes around to separate the two... Petrie's brain gets deprived of oxygen if they go just a little bit longer. Have a read of the link below, you sick freaks.
Also, remember a thing called 'the choking game' that was on the news a while ago. People died from that.
