I'm extremely disappointed in the poor discipline shown by May (which is not unusual for him).  Regardless of whether the decision is right or wrong, he should never have put himself in that position.  It wasn't a show of strength, but rather a show of stupidity, which is likely to cost the team.  Grrr.

The opposition player was not watching where he was going. I think May probably thought that the player would look up and avoid May - but he didn't till it was too late.

Mind you, if May missed his chin and only collected as far up as his upper chest, the players chin would have gone forward initially, then back. If he struck the chin at all the head would have gone back straight away. judge for yourselves

But "Berry walked off the ground unassisted and was not concussedSo how is it 'medium impact'?  Must appeal on that alone!!

Spot on.  If it's medium impact then you would expect him to have some sort of concussion, blood nose etc.  He didn't.  He walked off the ground and, being a JLT game, kept him off as a precaution.  I'm hoping they challenge as I think they have a chance of winning it.

Seriously though, if that's medium impact to the head, then every single high tackle should be considered extreme contact and we would be left with no players.

I think the neck is considered high though isn't it? Mays shoulder goes right in under his chin into his neck. but if there's no injury to the neck could you say it was medium impact?

also we could possibly argue that what else was he supposed to do besides brace for contact, as you cant tackle a bloke without the ball.

So it’s careless and medium impact but Whateley stated on 360 it was judged as intentional and low. Good to see everyone in the media is on the same page.

time to lawyer up.......but not richter, please

Burnside maybe?? :-)

The MRP (or whatever the chumps choose to cal it this year) has gotten off to a great start consistency wise.

Still, Mumford is important to the AFL's pet GW$$$, May plays for Melbourne, the AFL's whipping boy.  Therein lies the difference.

Just for good measure:  Clayton Oliver ($1500- Striking Lyons) and Aaron vandenBerg ($3000 Stiking Neale and making contact with umpire).  

Clearly, wearing red and blue means incidents are judged more severely than others!!

It’s not appropriate to grade the severity based on the fact he took no further part in the game, because it’s a practice match.

he Didn’t have concussion either.

bit of a joke frankly.

Meanwhile, May's team-mate Aaron vandenBerg was slapped with two fines totalling $3000 ($2000 for striking Lachie Neale, which was seen as intentional conduct with low impact to the body, and $1000 for making careless contact with umpire David Harris in the final quarter).

And gun Melbourne midfielder Clayton Oliver was charged with striking Brisbane onballer Jarryd Lyons and can accept a $1500 fine.

my patriotic mfc heart tells me to challenge the bs 

my brain tells me that he won't get off and that instead he should just cop the ban.

However, even if this specific incident is not willing of a suspension, it does not bode well that he is doing this stupid stuff in a practice match let alone what might happen in the real deal. although he is new, he should still be leading by example.  

the labrador and o'mac can hold down the backline in the meantime.

Sigh.

I hate the stupid off the ball bumps and sniping, but this was a 20-times-a-game shephard that just happend to hit awkwardly.

I don't see how a near-stationary player turning their body to receive the contact of someone running right at them (even if the opponent was just running stupidly rather than intentionally) can be a suspension offence.

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne atoned for the heartbreak of its frustrating finish to the 2017 season by, at long last, making the finals and then disposed of two highly credentialed and experienced teams in Geelong and Hawthorn before it capitulated meekly to eventual premier West Coast in the Preliminary Final in Perth. The club’s progression has been forward and upward since it finished 2013 with two wins and appointed Paul Roos as coach. The number has increased to four, seven, 10, 12, and now 14 games. The
