“Taking into account the visual look of the incident, the player reaction, the medical report and the potential to cause a more serious injury … we decided the appropriate grading was medium in this case,” Match Review Officer Michael Christian told AFL.com.au’s The Verdict.
Martin has also been fined $1500 for striking GWS midfielder Matt de Boer.
Port Adelaide ruckman Scott Lycett ($2000) and midfielder Zak Butters ($2000) and Fremantle forward Jesse Hogan ($2000) were all handed financial sanctions for separate incidents over the weekend.
