My son was coward punched. Hit a hard floor. Knocked unconscious. Chipped teeth, broken nose, face cut/swollen. Thankfully no permanent brain damage.

The Gaff punch wasn't a coward punch at least. Brayshaw was facing him.

The comments that Gaff could face gaol time if charged are clueless. First time offenders NEVER get gaol time. 

Sorry to hear your young bloke got whacked, bingers.

I think the coward punch has or is starting to take in different circumstances now. You can be facing and looking at  someone but if you’re unaware of a blow about to be thrown then you’re gonna be in strife. I guess the term ‘king hit’ was more likened to getting punched from behind.

I have had a couple of implants over the years at about 3 to 5k each. Not cheap but not $100K I think. Just for the record. 

I was going on what the Freo Medical report to the tribunal said that he would require years of dental work. So it’s not just the cost of the implants. I’m not sure about the detail. Safe to say it will be very costly.

8 weeks. 

Got off lightly, considering he executed a solid fist to the face of an innocent opponent and then kept running  

brayshaw will still be in recovery long after that. 

[censored] Weak as usual AFL, but after Barry Hall was cleared to play in the 2005 GF, i expect nothing from the Tribunal

I love those black and white movies where they go from a long shot panning into a close up across a room, you can hear the old record player playing a tune and then hitting a scratch and skipping back and playing again.... skipping and again... and again.... and again... and again.... and again.... and again......... zzzzzzz

Could you send Simpson to the gallows for it? Possibly not, but if you’re happy that you can see that it was one coach 4 votes to Gaff but want to belabour the pedantic point that technically we don’t know if it was “he’s a good bloke really and I gave him a little cuddle” Simpson or “it was an off ball hit that had me comforting his distraught mother” Lyon, (paraphrasing), then I guess I’m learning my annual-ish lesson of why I read but do not generally participate in internet fora.

 

On 8/6/2018 at 8:47 PM, IDee said:

Normally enjoy your work MS but it’s definitely one coach 4 votes, presumably Simpson because of the two how could it be Lyon, I’ll explain below:

Yeo must have two fives, as he got 10.

So the only way Redden can get 7 is a 4 and a 3.

That leaves one ‘4’ still to give and as nobody else got 4 or above except for Gaff it must be him.

 

You guys look very silly now, given its been revealed that Ross Lyon gave Gaff the AFLCA 4 votes rather than Simpson. 

SWYL, I think it's you who should be ashamed and apologise for your unfounded outrage and fake news pedalling.

IDee, I think the annual-ish lesson you should have learnt is to avoid the patronising coach quotes and maths explanations that aren't proven.

Gloat finished.

Outrage. Moonie you were right. You must be so excited!!!

Gaff getting Coaches votes on sunday is just wrong, but it wasn’t my call.

I guess that's as close to an apology as we'll get.

That you have been called out and look ridiculous is exciting. Thanks.

I’ve never seen a breakdown of ALFCA votes, unsure it’s released.

Mathematics is at fault for that being 4 votes from one coach.

I don’t think it’s emotional to assume Simpson gave him the 4 votes. But yes, that’s my assumption.

I believe MSF is right as it's the only mathematical possibility.

No it's not. You're making this vote equation up. Fake maths. Where's your evidence to say Simpson 4/Lyon 0? Happy to apologise if I'm wrong, will you and SWYL apologise if your opinion cannot be substantiated?

From the evidence so far, its not Simpson who should be ashamed, it you and SWYL

@Moonshadow Your ‘Fake maths’ comment was funny. I think it was meant to be funny?

But yes, my assumption was wrong that Simpson gave 4. I withdraw, apologise and stand corrected.

If (and it is a huge 'if') WCE had some class they would foot the entire medical bill. I reckon they should raise the issue on AFL360, WCE has stunk with how they have handled it so far.

You expected more? They are serial offenders since entering the league.

Gaff's lawyers 'Great Gaffe' - Grace just said: "My submission is you should impose a penalty at the lower end of the range, which commences at three years... I mean three weeks."

OOps, that is a serious freudian slip!!

Probably still thinking about when he was repping TWSNBN......

Hmm I think Gaff should put his hand up for it, he put his hand (clenched) up on Sunday to Brayshaw. He should look at paying up for it?

Angus to meet with Gaff during the week.
A hand shake , no hard feelings ...... See ya at the Demons for pre-season.

 

Watch the Nathan Jones interview on the club website and it also has a couple of hints that we are certainly in the hunt.

I have very strongly suspected for months that we are a huge chance, and nothing from the past couple of days dampens that hope.

Humble pie absolutely taken and I’m  not sure I’d have been as restrained as this if I was gloating in your place, so good on you for that.

Though to be fair the maths was spot on; the psychology way off!

I don’t feel sorry or sad for Gaff. At least not yet. He smashed a kid in the face for no reason. It was no accident. Whoops I meant to punch your chest? Screw that

He looked right at him and lined him up. Don’t care if it was a brain fade or whatever, this will have a big impact on brayshaw life and on his family.

    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
