Fremantle onballer Nat Fyfe has once again escaped sanction after the AFL Match Review Panel deemed his on field actions during Sunday’s match against North Melbourne did not warrant penalty. Fyfe butchered two Kangaroos defenders during the 3rd quarter of the match at Etihad Stadium last Sunday.
Fans were outraged when the Fyfe returned from a spell on the bench brandishing a chainsaw, and then proceeded to cut the legs off Michael Firrito before turning his attention onto halfback Shaun Atley.
Umpire Simon Meredith took Fyfe’s number but the MRP deemed the actions as low impact incidental contact, leaving the Brownlow Medal favourite still eligible to take home “Charlie” in September.
In a statement released by Fyfe’s management after the verdict was announced, the star midfielder said “stop me before I kill again”.
