Hand pressure after the match is back in focus after a dirty Dayne Zorko told his Gold Coast Sun's opponent to "f *** off" when he approached the Brisbane Lions defeat on Sunday.
Zorko was highly labeled by Touk Miller for most of the game and finished only 10 departures. His frustration was clear during the competition as he gave away six free kicks.
Vision of Miller approaching Lions vice captain was highlighted under an Access All Areas segment at AFL.com.au.
It clearly showed All-Australian midfielder, telling the young sun where he was going when he held his hand.
"The frustration comes to Zorko," said Geelong champion Jimmy Bartel. "He is an all-Australian, so the opposition will spend a lot of time in him.
" The games they have been very close to and potentially could have won have since been able to take him out .. He must find a way to go through it and have an influence. "
" He would be embarrassed about it, "added Essendon Great Matthew Lloyd." Unless something has happened that really disturbs him. "
Lloyd reminded of a time when he did not seek and shake his hand off Simon Prestigiacomo after the Collingwood fullback had tamed him on ANZAC Day.
"I did not go out of my way to shake my hand and Mick Malthouse as top as Collingwood coach and told my brother Simon who Also in the box was how poor it was from me, "said Lloyd.
" It's just not on and I put my hand up and say it was sour grapes. Probably a bit like it was with Dayne Zorko there. "
Zorko is on average 16 outlets a game in the Lions 0-5 start.
Miller (21 touches) was magnificent and earned Marcus Ashcroft Medal for best on earth.
His running match with Zorko was the sole prize for recording alone, but it was his desperate dive that spoiled a potentially matching winning Jacob Allison goal with two minutes back, which summed up his game. "There may be five, but some of these moments are special and should be celebrated," said Dew about Miller's efforts.
