A bit stupid by Jack. Got to be bigger than that. Love his passion, but needs to add some smarts, he's going to be targeted every week, has to get used to it. All part of the learning experience. Go Dees. Trengove in.

Yep, just needs to channel it more effectively. Trengove in could be a good call, could play a similar role.

Two weeks down to one with an early plea. 

Dont suppose it'd be worth the challenge.

Zero grounds for a challenge. Pretty obvious that it's low impact, intentional contact to the head. 

Only thing you could argue that it wasn't strong enough contact to warrant a report. Individually 1 punch/strike maybe, but 3-4 kind of bring it up to low impact.

Deemed intentional, low impact so 2 weeks is a bit stiff!

Probably not worth the challenge...he needs a rest anyway - took a heavy knock a few weeks ago (vs brisbane (?) went off and didn't come back on) and has carried a heavy load so far this year.

yep agreed. He's not the type to accept he needs time off for  injury I don't thnk , so it may be a blessing in disguise. Gawd help us against the hawks though.

What a great show of leadership. 

Pity we cant afford to send him to the vfl after his weeks suspension. 

Just game himself a bunch of games where he is targeted.

Yeah but still a massive loss this weekend especially coming up against the hawks. Dam it. Wonder if other clubs now know how to put him off his game by niggling him and getting his focus off the ball. 

But people over the weekend kept saying he should get off. 

But not a great thing for a leader to do especially with the team we are playing this week. Jordan Lewis got cleared for his headbutt by the way. 

But I think Jack will be disappointed he got sucked in and got a week.

Give him a week to think about it, every team in the comp knows he has a short fuse and if he doesn't learn to deal with players winding him up he will miss a few weeks to come.

AFL 2016 Rd 10 - Melbourne v Port Adelaide

 

Saw this pic on club website of Ollie taunting his off-field best mate.  If I can put words in Jack's mouth he would be saying:  'yep, you'll keep mate!

What was disappointing for me was the lack of support from his team-mates when he was obviously labouring under a heavy tag.  Jones and/or Vince could've done more in my view, along the same lines that Viney himself has flown the flag for team mates several times this year.  I think Clarrie will be superb in this arena in due course and hopefully Gus.  Doesn't seem to be Tyson's thing, not Vandenberg for that matter.

One punch:   free kick 

Two punches:  5,000$ fine 

Three punches:  Jeez Jack ...I'm gonna have to give you a week!

Enjoy the rest young fella

Come back and give it to the Pies.

Bit of a joke of a suspension.

How can they be deemed as punches? Ebert ran out of his way to elbow Viney in the back to start it anyway. MRP are fools. What about the 3 facial contacts with Demon players. They were clumsy & all very deliberate. [censored] Port look forward to the return match.

Saw the Gawn and Garland ones.  Which was the 3rd?

Suspension irrelevant for Viney ... Can confirm has hand injury, needs surgery, out 3-4 weeks .. @7NewsMelbourne

It's going to be very interesting to see if anyone is willing to fly the flag in his absence.

We may very well go 0-4 in our next 4 games. Who in our team is willing to stand up over the next month?

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
