3rd strike is when the player obviously can't get a handle on his problem and is out.
Hawthorn, up until a couple of years ago, have been seen to have a party drug culture in it, and it's unfortunate Tuck seems to have gotten caught up in it. It's very disappointing that Hawthorn either didn't take strike two serious enough or that Tuck was just too far 'into' it that he couldn't pull back.
Yeah, so Hawthorn would have been told after the 2nd strike then?
