Maybe it's a cultural thing related to Australian sport, but I don't see how you could possibly fail to give the "best player" award to someone just because they headbutted someone in the last 5 minutes of the tournament. Doesn't have any impact on how he played for the rest of the tournament at all.
Mind you, the award was given out at half time it seems, so the headbutt wouldn't even have happened yet.
I'm afraid I dont quite understand what your saying there, Fuller. Should he have got the award even after he headbutted or not?.
