If Clisby gets more weeks than C. Brown then...

Can anyone please indicate which quarter and rough time it occurred so I don't have to trawl thru a whole game again.

Cheers

The incident occurred pretty early in the second quarter (to the best of my recollection).

BUT - the mongrels on Fox didn't show a proper reply of the incident until much later and they only showed a decent reply of it ONCE - perhaps in the third quarter. It's this reply that clearly demonstrated that it was a deliberate, low dog, criminal act.

I reckon Strauss should sue the scumbag. I really like Craig, but I was a bit disappointed he didn't mention the incident in the presser following the game.

I thought it was a deliberate act as it was pretty clear that there were two movements of the foot, the first was from falling over (which, if he had struck Strauss then, would have been accidental) and the second was when, whilst on the ground, he moved his foot towards Strauss' face.

I don't think he intended to break his nose but throwing your studded boot into the face of another player is just about as reckless as it can get on the footy field.

Strauss is lucky he only has a broken nose and he didn't cop a stud in the eye.

He deserves a severe ban for this incident - I would have thought 6-8 weeks before his bad record / carry over points are taken into account.

It was the first minute of the 3rd q, he very definitely kicked him in the face. It was an action with one leg and he kicked out directly at the face.

Yep. If using the smart replay on the AFL site click on the second goal of the third quarter and it's about 10 seconds after that.

To see the close replay change the 'event' to behinds and click on the first behind of the third. It's about 30 on.

Don't understand how that can be seen as accidental.. It is completely inhumane that when lying on your back you kick your foot out.. when you should be trying to place both feet on the ground to enable yourself to get up..

This is a very important moment for the match review panel and if this isn't even looked at, than I'll be banging down the radios further than before. If this happened to a Collingwood player it'd be all over the news. Campbell Brown is a dog.. I don't like the word, but once is an accident.. twice is stupidity, three times is thuggery however, this would be close on Brown's 5th or 6th offence of this nature. Kick him out.

think your right dl7

the AFL has been hoping for a monster tribunal charge and hopefully involving buddy, coll

this would have given them a chance to release ess penalty with another major story going

but alas it was just a Melbourne player and our own gc, nothing exciting here vlad

It was apparently 2nd quarter.

Not sure when.

I should've know better than to trust the Herald Sun.

It happened with 19mins to play in the 3rd quarter, with a close up replay on the fox broadcast with 17mins 36secs to play, immediately after Sexton kicked a behind.

Deliberate, no doubt.

There's a bit of history between Brown and Strauss.

Both educated at that bastion of Calvinist Christian conservatism: Scotch College, and when they first met on the field in (I think) round one 2010 apparently Brown told Strauss that if ever he (Brown) saw Strauss on the field again he'd fix him up!!!

I think Mr Brown needs some of his own medicine.

I can further this story.. Remember a friend telling me he alleged Brown told him 'he was a sh*t c***, and that he wouldn't waste his spit on the worst player on the field.' Along those lines.. Think the guy has issues

Even without the history ??? of the two

the incident looked perhaps accidental/deliberate in real time and did have significant result

In replay it certainly looked deliberate

the review panel should take action on the result alone

they should be seen to take action to protect the head as the result could have been significantly worse.

I highly dislike Brown (I started this thead) but I don't mind that tactic! Some of our players could do with using intimadation if it will work.

It always gave me the shits when Aaron Davey at the peak of his powers never wanted to make an indigenous opponent look bad. It was like the brotherhood meant more than the jumper to him.

We need to instill the good bits of Campbell Brown into our players because we'd have won more than 2 games this year if our guys attacked the contest like he did. I'd take Browns aggression in Watts talent any day of the week even if he missed half a season suspended

Im happy he got weeks.. But it begs the question if you throw a punch to the face, you get two weeks.. He has used a weapon in that of the studs of his boots and received only an extra week and that includes his history and bad record.

Great that he's gone for the year.. But still confused

Master

there was definitely a keener edge to the game on saturday

any player who went near Gablett left there arm hanging out to wind him and there was a fair bit of flying the flag in the scuffles

Seemed a fairly cohesive and supportive team most of the night. A couple of the suns breaks did occur as players got loose coz their opponent was looking after his mates

As we won evrywhere but on the scoreboard I thought this wasnt a bad thing although it frustrated me at the time

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
