I didn't see the game but have seen the highlights of the incident on the AFL app. I watched it the first time and it didn't even register to me that he might be in trouble. It'd be a complete disgrace if he was cited. This competition and sections of the media and fans are irrationally obsessed with suspending people. I just find it weird.

I think Lynch should be suspended for injuring himself and Georgiou with a head clash.

Was Viney's bump shoulder to shoulder?

Did Viney's head clash in to Lynch?

If the answer to both those questions is no then it doesn't matter that Lynch's head hit Georgiou's. That's footy.

We need the super slow mo camera to work out if Viney made the contact to Lynch or if it was the ensuing head clash that caused the damage. Viney shouldn't be held accountable if his bump was clean.

he turned to take possession of the ball, did not look as if bumping was his goal. play on...

Pull your head out of the sand. Caught any bump issues at the tribunal this year? The incident is going to have severe scrutiny. Hopefully they find it was shoulder to shoulder and legal. But I have little confidence. The MRP see injuries and look for suspensions.

I would say a lot depends on whether they view his action as a deliberate bump or bracing for the impact while going for the ball. As Stated above, they take the line that if a player chooses to bump and an injury results they will be suspended, so if they look at it from that side he may be in strife. If you watch the footage, he turns and braces a few steps before impact, so in slow motion it looks pretty premeditated and he certainly hist Lynch high with his shoulder. At full speed it looks a lot better for him because you can see the speed at which they are moving and how little time he had to register that the collision was coming and react.

I would say that if he played for a top side there would be nothing to worry about, but the tribunal has a history of coming down hard on players from the "weaker" clubs, also known as easy targets. Think back to Jack Zeibel getting three weeks for a totally legal attempt at the ball and Trengove's perfect tackle on Dangerfield which also copped three weeks. Based on that record I have a sad suspicion that they will look at this as an opportunity to show that they are coming down hard on dangerous play and will try to throw the book at him.

The day an MFC player gets 3 weeks for that is the day I stop watching footy.

Bumps like that are what make footy great.

We've been somewhat lucky to not have too many victims of these silly new rules.

Yet at the same time i'm still angry about Trengove's sling tackle suspension.

Oh and how about that tough guy Josh Jenkins body slamming Georgiou after Georgi stopped him in his tracks with a tackle. Any melbourne player does that and they get 3 weeks - see Mitch Clisby last year.

Nothing in it, should be fine. So he'll get 3 weeks.

He probably bloody will. Fair bump by Viney, Georgio was laying the tackle but because someone got seriously injured I think he will be cited. Very defendable though. Sometimes injury's happen.

His shoulder or head didnt connect with opponents head at any point. It was the the ricochet from a fair bump back into Georgeys head. Nothing in it... move on.

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
