NBL will not cite Drmic for Goulding contact

Roy Ward:

The @NBL will not cite Anthony Drmic for his accidental elbow on Chris Goulding. Play on. #NBL19

The contact on the play was ruled as incidental.

NBL content:
The GRP considered submissions from Melbourne and Adelaide and determined that a charge was not warranted.

It found Drmic's action in ripping the ball away from his opponent was a legitimate act in the course of play and contact with Goulding was incidental.

Commonsense, who would have thought.

Twas an epic hit though. Jon Bones Jones would've been proud.

Goulding should be cited for being a fairy

fairy ??? He has wings and sparkles ??? You must be particularly fond of him in that case.

I though he is just a bit of a soft attention-seeking whiner.

Send Melbourne the bill for the investigation.

Why is everyone so up in arms? It was a solid elbow to the head, it was significant enough to warrant a further look, they did that but concluded it was accidental. The right conclusion was reached but people are still bitching about the people involved. There is nothing to complain about.

Yeah, it was always going to be looked at and found accidental. Anstey said as much on the broadcast.

Goulding refused to shake Drmic's hand and accept an apology after the game.

As a Sixers fan, with a huge dislike to Goulding's behaviour as a player, I still don’t know about this. The force that elbow comes back with....... I think Drmic was lucky.

Goulding probably over played the injury though, well known for his Academy award performances.

I think most people's immediate reaction was similar to Anstey's- accidental contact, it may get reviewed but ultimately there will be no penalty

The NBL has not gone down the path of clamping down on head contact- whether accidental or not- like other sports have.

In the AFL "accidental" isn't an automatic out. You might still have a case to answer.

Whether the NBL should crack down is another question. Probably not- since basketball isn't an overly physical game, and incidents like this will always be rare.
