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.
