EARLIER: West Coast Eagles are coming under fire for accusing Lindsay Thomas of staging after a groin hit from Luke Shuey .
North Melbourne legend Glenn Archer will be on Triple M Melbourne's Rush Hour from 4pm Thursday to discuss the hit.
Richmond coach Damien Hardwick reckons Lindsay Thomas' character was assassinated at the tribunal this week.
North Melbourne says it's not fussed with accusations Thomas faked contact that lead to Luke Shuey's suspension.
"I'm a little bit disappointed to be honest, at the end of the day if you do the crime you get the time," Hardwick said.
"To try and bring into question Lindsay Thomas, I'd didn't like it, it's not something our club would be a part of."
