Charman receives two-match suspension

The controversial Brisbane-St Kilda AFL season opener had its sequel on Tuesday night at the tribunal, with Lions ruckman Jamie Charman suffering a two-match suspension.

But Saints forward Aaron Hamill was found not guilty of striking his arch-rival Chris Scott.

Scott admitted he was "as theatrical as possible" when he feigned contact from Hamill during the often-fiery match.

Hamill had thrown his arm back to shake off Scott's hold on him and the two argued no contact was made.

But the action prompted a 50m penalty against Hamill and an amusing exchange between the two players shortly after the incident.

"He said he thought I was better than taking a dive and I told him I thought he was a better shot," Scott said.

Scott lost part of a tooth during the match, but a Brisbane medical report said it was on the left side of his mouth.

Hamill's hand swept past the right side of Scott's face.

Charman ran into Riewoldt from the front after the Saint dropped a mark.

While Charman could not sway the three-man jury, advocate Sean Carroll successfully argued the collision with Saints captain Nick Riewoldt should be ruled as reckless and not intentional.
