    I am being facetious as this gentleman would be the last person to need help mounting a case but seeing as though this isn't a criminal charge, we are free to discuss.
    In the fight to mount a case for a downgrade of Glenn's charge, Id like to see them look at footage from the last 30 or so players to be sin binned, to show the judiciary that players do not run once they've been sent from the field by the referee. This will hopefully partly highlight Blair as the aggressor in addition to the questions about Glenn having warranted being sin binned in the first instance(particularly when compared to the cheap shot uppercut by Blair).

    What else could they point out?

    The fact that Glenn should never have been binned in the first place.

    Yeah show the footage of Foran with his arms around Stewart trying to get him off Blair - that should do the trick

    Of course we have to hope with have Bellew - if the storm have already got him there will be a conflict not allowing him to defend both (I assume)

    Take in a DVD of Sam Thaiday running into scraps

    After the 3 hours it will take to view, ask them why Foran and Robertson should be charged with anything when he hasn't ever been

    Gould and Warren are the same commentators and Shane Hayne is the ref and Gould mentions that the clock hasnt been stopped in both the Brooky Brawl and this footage.

    Bellew's track record is outstanding, but he'll know the what happened previously defence doesn't work. The best bet is to argue the case on the facts, example Snake charges, the contact, the force used. Forans charges, evidence???? He's no dummy and if he thinks we should fight the charges that should give us hope of a good outcome.

    I'm guessing that Lussick and Gifty will be the only players worth going into battle for to downgrade their charges. The others should just cop the 1 week and be done.

      Lussick was concussed by the hinchcliff elbow and Blairs cheap uppercut and didnt realise it was not the same fight. He thought that all storm players are dogs..roll 56hours of tape.
      If Blair didnt want to go Gift a second time why did he stop and talk to Gifty? Because he was not content with only hitting DL.

      He should highlight Blair's past record, that should be good for an extra month or so!

      I realise that my opinion may be in the minority but I still believe that even though Glen was walking from the field, Blair ran up to Glen, came to a walking pace and commenced mouthing off and shirt grabbing, then Glen took a swing. If Blair kept running past Glen without stopping, nothing else would have happened.
