Speaking on the couch on Monday night, Brisbane Lions great Jonathan Brown was in favor of the ban.
“You have to go for football,” he said.
“Unfortunately – it can happen two or three times a year in your season – you just say ‘I don’t like it but I’m going to have to stop now a few yards ahead or I’m going to have to put my head into football and risk of injury.
“The suspension doesn’t bother me.
St Kilda champion Nick Riewoldt agreed with the concept of head protection but was confused as to how Young’s case would be handled.
“It’s hard to say because we’ve been so inconsistent with it,” he said.
“Picking that up from a previous point of view maybe not (a ban).
“I don’t care that we’re going to protect the lead and discourage that kind of action, but let’s do it consistently.”
Speaking on SEN on Tuesday morning, Melbourne great Garry Lyon said continuing the suspension would mean “the bump is basically gone”.
