Forget about it, I hope he gets his 3rd Brownlow; He deserves his place as a triple Brownlow medalist.

But...but..Jones

That's the spirit deeman. Jones would be happy to win the Brownlow with 10 less votes than GAJ as a result of Gaz getting rubbed out for a nothing elbow.

Who isn't a fan of GAJ!? the guy is defining the odds from all angles. I have never ever seen such extraordinary talent in what he displays. The game is a dull place when he is not playing. I hope he doesn't get ping for that. Absolutely deserves a third brownlow. He is daylight ahead of any player this year its quite remarkable.

I love him, never said i didn't, best player to play the game, but I like Nate Jones more.

But yet you hope he gets pinged for it. There is nothing in it and it would be a disgrace if Ablett was to miss out on a 3rd Chas and a place in history for that.

I'd rather see Jones lead us into the finals this year than win a Brownlow.

Carey, Maurice Rioli, Stephen Michael, Gary Ablett Snr and Robbie Flower were amongst the best I ever saw play but I think Gary Jnr probably has them all covered

I watched Gary Ablett Snr a lot. Ive never seen anybody see a kick and head down charge to where it would land.

He did it every game.

I think it'd be hilarious if he got rubbed out, but I haven't seen the footage yet. I couldn't care less about him winning another one though. He gets a terrific go from the umpires. A genius, but about time he got the wrong end of the umpire's stick.

No doubt he will claim it was accidental, part of shrugging off someone holding onto him after the ball had departed.

That said, it was more forceful than Dawes' slide up the face in play

But do we expect any modicum of consistency from the MRP?

NEVER.

PS I don't think that that deserves a suspension, either.

How can you be so sure he's the best player to have ever played the game when you are only 12?

Where did you get the idea that i'm 12?!

And by the way i do watch old matches of Leigh Matthews, Wayne Carer, Gary Snr, but to me jnr is the best

And he did deliberately elbow him in the face you can clearly see it.

Am I such a criminal because I want Jones to win it?

Your assumption is he intended to elbow him in the face

It doesn't deserve suspension then again Dawes' should have only been a free kick so who knows.

Dawes deserved a stiff fine, but no carry over points, or games missed.

The penalties need to be reviewed. So they can add a set of fines, which should be open to appeal from either side. The fines should be for minor infringements, which are too strong for just a free kick, but not enough to miss games over. A common sense approach, covered by fines & no points added.

Well you can see it.

Really so Ablett looks around and says I am going to elbow this fella in the head

I must be wrong then or my television set clearly doesn't show his intent. I would argue if it was me I was trying to get up and being held back down so I swung my arm back to initiate contact to his chest to break free.

Mine doesn't show intent either. But on what I saw, he raised his elbow and jabbed it back at a player he knew was right behind him. If he thought about it at all he must have known that he couldn't determine which bit of the man he'd hit - therefore reckless high contact, impact questionable. Good record, could get a week reduced to a reprimand, could get two weeks reduced to one.

Great ball winning players always benefit from the unwritten and unspoken "involuntary retaliation" defence in scraps with close checkers. He was against Liam Picken who is quite a mongrel. Remember his crude stuff against Nat Jones. Ablett will get off.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
