Last Sunday during an AFL match between the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers, Andrew Gaff struck opponent Andrew Brayshaw in the face. The 18-year-old was left with a broken jaw and dislodged teeth. This week Gaff faced the music and was handed an 8 game suspension for his actions, he has also apologised for the attack "I feel so sorry for what has now happened to Andrew. I never intended for this to happen.""Once I saw him lying on the ground, I instantly felt sick … mentally I didn't want to keep playing." Some people believe Gaff should have faced criminal charges while others think the incident has been blown out of proportion. So LiveTribers, do you think the punishment was fair or too harsh? Since Gaff pleaded guilty and showed remorse for his actions, should the punishment have been less severe?
