Bernie's 'hit' on Eddie was a mere elbow brush to let the little fella know he was around. I've looked at the replay several times from all (limited) angles available. There is no conclusive evidence that he hit Eddie's jaw. It looks like a slide up the neck which was enhanced by Eddie's (over)reaction and facial expression. Bernie got stitched up by the MRP because of the perception that he is a naughty boy. Martin is the naughty boy but he was deemed to be reacting to an aggressive opponent. Criticism of Bernie here is short sighted. He used far more rugged tactics on Dangerfield a little while ago and was applauded by all for the great shut down job he performed. Perception is everything in the fake news media!

Many people are seemingly very susceptible to fake news.

Honestly the AFL is completely stuffed. They change the parameters on these rules by the week, sack guys for screwing consenting adult women and just generally make [censored] up as they go along. The fish rots at the head and that won't improve until the goon running the place is gone.

The only reason I turn up every week is to support this club and this year more than ever I have been proud about the way they walk out and contest every match. 

Bernie is a part of that, he won't get off all offences like a Franklin or Martin and he won't get personal recommendations from television hosts that nobody actually watches or politicians that don't even know who their voter base is but Bernie has guts and delivers week in week out so stuff you Gil, stuff you Waleed, stuff you Mal and bring back Bernie.

Wow ok, now I'm completely confused. I thought it was a fine for the "strike" on Betts and 2 up to 3 for the bump. THIS MAKES SO SENSE!!!!

I almost feel we should definitely contest the Betts strike, the MRP made that distinction of what is and isn't negligible contact and Vince's "elbow" surely falls under that. It was a graze at best which is exactly what you would've said for Schofield's. And if you're going to suspend Vince for that then you suspend Martin as well. There is ZERO consistency going here, but Schofield gets off because Oliver is perceived to have taken a (pointless) dive!

The bump I took as 50/50 and am surprised that given it got a charge he got a fine. The MRP are such a joke, it honestly doesn't make sense anymore.

So Vince gets 2 weeks because of a bad reputation and playing for the MFC. Martin from Richmond gets of for eye gauging because he is one of the Brownlow favourites and Richmond pull in a big crowd each week and are playing the Giants this week. It just goes to show how full of shizen the MRP and AFL are.

Completely [censored] off with the lack of consistency, particularly when compared to Scofield and also Ben Cunnington (he only hit Burnie hard enough in the guts to make him vomit, but I guess it was an accident), but I'm trying to look at this glass half full; Bernie could probably do with a few weeks rest to freshen up for the final run home.

This was a 2 week penalty (i.e. 1 with a guilty plea) that was increased to a 3 week penalty because of his bad record.

Completely fair.

The real problem is that Martin's strike was deemed "careless" and not "intentional". 

Jackson Trengove's was deemed "careless" too. Whilst I think Vince deserves what he gets for stupidity, the clear blatant inconsistency by the MRP is ridiculous.

Interesting from Gary Lyon saying Goodwin would be so filthy with Vince for being undisciplined that even if he doesn't get rubbed out his spot could be in jeopardy. 

Who cares what Lyon says he has no special knowledge of the MFC even though he pretends to have it to gain some sort of bs relevence completely over him and his comments

It's too late to lynch him now.

People would find out and someone would complain.

Love him or hate him he does have a point - can imagine goody not well pleased given all the noise of late plus the fact we have an injury / suspended list longer than a Hunt torpy.

i do agree both looked like there wasn't much in it but still - bloody undisciplined by bern.

Vince is the one and only person held accountable in this. Everything else is pointless to talk about.

 

Most people here are talking about the inconsistency by the MRP, Vince aside, it's rigged.

Really Steve. Youve your dislike for the fellow , we get it but if you're that blindingly stupid to not be awarecof the many occasions the MFC gets whacked by the clownfest aka mrp then youll do argument no favours.

Bernie does some silly things. Gets nicked. Others do ridiculous things and are given treatments beholding a cover-up. 

All most reasoned folk are arguing is... fair's fair.

No, take a look over just this weekends events in regards to MRP, then go back each week by week, if you find consistency and fairness I'd be surprised. Even Wayne Carey thinks it's rigged as per his 3 comments in 2 weeks on TV.

Oh yes I would.  Almost every week we see evidence of its inconsitency and corrpution, regardless of any MFC player being involved.

Our captain certainly isn't happy and gives Bernie a serve:  "He really does need to smarten himself up," Jones said..."It's happened far too often with him over the past 12-18 months, he's been (suspended) too many times..."It's frustrating for us because he's a very important player to us."

Can't argue with that.

Don't forget Martin's follow-up eye gouge.

Yes, the MRP is inconsistent, but so what? If our players stop hitting blokes in the head, they will have nothing to worry about.

The only reason people have their panties in a bunch is because morons like Vince & Bugg can't control themselves and instead keep throwing elbows and fists around when there is no need to do so.

Bernie should take the two weeks, and spend the time working out how how he can get these acts out of his game.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    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
