Children’s TV icon and first grade prop Peppa Pig has been suspended from finals football after being found guilty of making a crusher tackle during Sunday’s finals game.
While Peppa stated she is disapointed with the result of the judiciary hearing, she is grateful to have had the opportunity to learn how the judiciary panel works as well as apologise for her dangerous tackle.
“I thought I was doing the right thing,” stated Peppa Pig.
“But applying pressure to him after he was called ‘held’ was the wrong thing to do and I’m sorry.”
Despite providing this public apology parent groups remain outraged with Peppa’s behaviour and demand the game be replayed with Peppa wearing a helmet.
At the time of writing, Peppa Pig will have a chance to dispute this ruling and will be allowed to return to the judiciary with a new argument and a defence representative more established than Daddy Pig.
More to come.
