With the suspension of two player and the reprimand of another, tackling has come under the microscope again.  Looking at the three incidents, the Kozy tackle was the one the amazed me.  What he did:

Gary Ablett Fights Flights PDF Print Email

Gary Ablett was unable to attend a schedule training session on the Gold Coast today after flights were cancelled due to the volcanic ash cloud.  As usual, his critics are using this to question his commitment and get their name in the press.  All you have to do is have a look at his performance this year.  If the Suns were not getting whipped most weeks, he would be favourite for the Brownlow.  He is a star.  His star status has been enhanced by his ability to perform with distinction in the bottom team.  The wins the Suns have achieved can be attributed the his on and off field leadership.

Without going into detailed statistics, watching the games and his performance during every match this year, he lets his on-field performance do the talking.  Gary - Do not listen to your critics.  You have confirmed that you are skilled, committed and a true leader.  Keep it going.
