Joel Selwood was reported for striking Sam Mitchell during West Coast's 13-point win over Geelong at Domain Stadium last night.
Selwood collected Mitchell in the back of the head with an elbow as the pair were falling forward.
Comparisons have been drawn between the incident and Alex Rance’s “brain fade” last year when he struck Jack Watts.
The MRP viewed the strike in a particularly dim light because of the potential to cause serious injury.
Here are the incidents side-by-side.
Selwood is currently the 4th favourite for the Brownlow, paying $11 on Crownbet.
