Why is the AFL tougher than the National party?

Herald Sun

The AFL appears to be way tougher on domestic violence and violence against women than the National party:

EXCITING Geelong rookie Jesse Stringer has been banned from senior football for the rest of the season.

The young midfielder allegedly assaulted a woman last week and the AFL has approved the Cats’ ban.

While Stringer will be unavailable for AFL selection until 2013, he will be eligible to play out the season in the VFL from Round 18 onwards – effectively a four-game ban on playing at any level.

    So he is actually only banned for four games, not that tough.

    • Tougher than National though.

    Concur Cameron – domestic violence is in the too hard to deal with basket without being dragged into the same shitty hole Labour put themselves on allowing the MSM to tag the legislation with the crap PR line of anti-smacking.
