The unfortunate victim is Essendon’s Kaine Baldwin, applying the Falcon-Smother on a Bailey Williams kick at Marvel Stadium, in the process earning himself a share of a future AFL concussion settlement:
Now I’d like to note this may very well be one of the stranger cases of time coming full circle, because the last recorded Falcon Smother in the AFL was Sam Frost for Hawthorn, against Essendon in Round 14 last season.
Obviously Kaine Baldwin wears No.26 for the Bombers, but in a perfect full circle moment, who kicked the ball into Frosty’s mush?
CALE HOOKER, WEARING NUMBER 26 FOR THE BOMBERS.
