"...vision of Schofield making contact with Oliver's jaw, combined with the strong medical report from the Demons, led the MRP to deem the strike as intentional with low impact to the head... The decision to sanction Schofield by definition rules out any possibility for the MRP to claim that Oliver was staging."

At last the MRP see sense!

but......"strong medical report" and "low impact" don't exactly gel

i wonder if "strong medical report" is just a bit of reporter's colouring. strong is a strange word to use here.

Demon 77 just ask your Essesendon lot to recall the 2000 GF and look at how their players go about business. Do not back down. I would have let fly as well. Demon supporters and the club will no longer be bullied. Attacking you at work for supporting a team is bullying and unacceptable. You now feel how Clarrry is feeling. The victim is apparently at fault. Go Dees

Was listening to robbo on sen podcast, he had clarry in his dislikes and a caller rang up and said watch boxing as you can cop just a glancing blow on your chin and it can stun you to the point of falling over, it sort of changed Robbos mind on it, I bet he goes into bat for clarry on afl360 tonight bookmark it

Spot on.  If you get hit on the point of the chin laterally it doesn't take a heap of force to take you down.

Clayton changed his profile photo on twitter that clearly shows the elbow connecting with his chin.

I reckon he regrets posting to Damien Martyn as I think he's been copping tons of posts his way, so he felt the need to put up the photo to justify himself further. But surely now that a decision has been made by MRP everyone can move on

Schofield gets 2 down to 1.  Deemed intentional.  The right call IMV.

So rubbish to all the media who tried to make it a Clayton story!

Only fair given Lewis and Hogan both got multiple weeks.

Nothing original to add here, but I just wanted to say that - after watching him being interviewed on Saturday night - his composure in the face of those smirking dinosaurs -  and thinking about how he's played this year - I just love this guy.  I still can't get that picture of him in the Richmond game out of my head - the one where he's up to his neck in a rolling scrum and somehow gets the ball out to Jeffy - brilliant. How could they - and even some of you on this thread - think for a second he's a diver?

Love both Jonesy and Viney, but this kid's a freak.

We probably were strong in suggesting that contact was 100% made to Oliver's jaw that needed medical attention to clear Oliver of any serious damage as he was in pain and bleeding. The impact was low, but it was there!

An Essendon supporter greeted me at work this morning by telling me Oliver needs to take a good hard look at himself.

That caused the first twitch in my eye, I returned serve with the points you stated, Schofield being the real issue here and I couldn't care less if Oliver dived or did not. 

His next response was, nah mate Schofield only did what Jones, Viney and Bugg have been doing all year. Well, that was enough for both eyes to start twitching, I had to stop my task immediately before a verbal spat ignited, found the smoking balcony and sucked down a quick Winnie Blue whilst jumping on Demonland to calm down.

 

 

Just to take this a little further. Is this MFC GOOD ball player so good and so brave, and so much in Brownlow Medal contention that he is, much like two certain Geelong players, getting picked on on because of that very reason. I guess what i am saying is, like his counterparts from the Cats, he deserves, and it is about bloody time he received,the same degree of protection by the Umpires and indeed the support of the AFL, MRP, whoever.....  

Do we have to wait otherwise until all ball players are seriously injured before the penny drops!!!!!!

Perhaps a word from the right level of seniority within the AFL to the media could sort this out....

Give your workmate a copy of the MRP outcome showing Clarry didnt stage .

Then give him a summary of the WADA hearing.

Then hand him a Syringe

Then laugh in his face.

Then point to the ladder, and the results from our last game, and walk off.

Yep. As i suggested earlier... there's a jolly good reason boxers like to land one across a chin !!

Any credibility Slobbo may have had has evaporated over the last month.  The guy is an A grade jerk.

Should have just put a little elbow on his chin and seen what his reaction was!

It also p***ed me off when Clarry kicked what must be close to goal of the year and then the hacks started tearing it down with crap about it hitting the post.

In defence of Slobbo, he did say that it is wrong that we are talking about Clarry and not Schofield who should be copping the heat.

In years to come, Clarry will be remembered as a match winner, not a stager.
